Desperately seeking....

More space! For the last couple years my daughters room has been a real disaster and hazard-each night we need to make a fire path to the door from her bed. She has a very small room and a LOT of stuff. I have been desperately trying to kick my husband out of her closet, which also houses the door to our attic stairway. (He has had dibs on this space for the past 11 years, with stuff that he has not looked at in that time either.)

I have seen where they make closets into offices, taking the door off , putting a desk and shelving in it. Giving them much needed space, even if it is only a couple of feet.

One afternoon with nothing to do, I decided to tackle it. I took everything out of the closet, packed it away in boxes and put it in the basement.

I painted it pink and then came the fun part, filling it up with all of her stuff. We put her kitchen set in, then we filled the hooks that line the walls with dress-up clothes, purses and hats.

All in all, I think it turned out pretty good and Maddie's loves her new special place.

I just scanned over your site and I love the framed door knob plaque thingys!!! Love that!

We are such kindred spirits!
