Pinterest Inspiration

Well, I didn't make any progress on the nursery dresser this week, but I did knock something else off my to-do list.

I'm not sure about you, but I love Pinterest.  It's a DIY'ers haven, and gives me plenty of inspiration, help when I don't know which way to go, and lots of exposure to new blogs with new ideas.  A while back, I pinned this idea for extra storage in our bathroom:

Bingo!  We are always looking for better ways to store things, to make more room in closets, etc.  For some reason, I never thought of going up for storage, especially extra towels.  Our linen closet was the current residence for our extra towels, but the space could really be used otherwise, especially since an entire room and closet are about to be displaced to make room for the Little Miss.

This weekend during a trip to Menards, we picked up a 12x36 inch board and used a couple brackets that were recently freed up due to another project (more on that to come soon), and turned this:

into this:

And took our hall closet from this:

to this:

Look at the huge amount of space that's been freed up!  And when we reconfigure the rest of the closet (another project for another weekend, along with getting the trim up), there will hopefully be enough room for the vacuum and the Spot Bot.  Mission accomplished!  

So how was your weekend?  Did you make storage in areas where you thought storage options were tapped out?  Or are you as addicted to Pinterest as I am?  There should be a support group...

  1. I have that same shelf, and almost the same bracket from Menards :)

    Beware; babies take up way more space than you expect. My biggest surprise was needing so much space in the kitchen cupboards for all their bottles, bowls, baby food, etc.
