About This Project

I didn't follow Ana's plans for this, I actually designed the closet system to correspond with my dimensions / wants / desires (see blog post), but this goes to show you that once you start building things, it's really hard to stop! I think in building brain now. I don't think in "how can I afford that" terms anymore, I think in "how can I make something similar, but BETTER?" Ana has helped us make our nursery for our first baby a labor of love!

Estimated Cost: 
$100
Estimated Time Investment: 
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Intermediate
Type of Wood: 
cabinet grade plywood
Finish Used: 
We primed all of this with white primer and then applied a few coats of ultra white paint by behr.

Nice!

This looks great! Love the blue interior. I'm working on something similar right now. Customization is one of the best parts of building yourself!

Wow, really impressive

I really want to tackle something similar for my girls' closet. So this is great to see. Now, when you say it took you 3-6 hours, does that include cutting, priming, painting or just the assembly?

Thanks so much for sharing. People like me really need the inspiration!

Thanks!

Thanks gals! 3-6 hours was total, but this was a joint effort with my husband's help on priming / painting too. We had a bunch of 'stations' setup in our yard, and we started with putting on one coat, and went through both these and the bookshelves, and then re-coated. Being outside helped it dry faster too. The assembly was pretty easy!

Here's my blog post on it : http://mekhart.blogspot.com/2011/03/nursery-room-closet-reveal.html

And here's my blog post on our design going into it, which I think having this setup ahead of time saved a ton of time : http://mekhart.blogspot.com/2011/02/nursery-room-closet-design.html.

Hope that helps!
