Nursery Closet Reveal!

We have been feverishly trying to figure out all things nursery!  Our first step - we Nate DID paint the closet orange like we were thinking!  So fun!  We were totally inspired by (and I single white femaled) the exact color that was used in How Joyful's nursery closet.  Since we are planning on sticking with aqua, orange and grey, this was our perfect pop of orange!

Let's remember the closet before...


And after!

You have probably seen this puppy posted on Instagram.

Then last weekend Nate put the closet together!  I really wanted corner shelving or some sort of corner unit in here.  The closet is good sized, but with regular racks you lose so much closet space that is unused in the corner.  Enter the Ikea Pax corner unit!  Hooray!  Nate left out some of the crappy/pointless back panels so you could see the orange through and we LOVE!  

He also ran to Menard's and picked up some of their brackets/poles/wood to put on each side for hanging items.  Works perfectly!

I'm so excited for Bradley to have this fun closet for his belongings!  So cute!  He already owns some items after being spoiled by Grandma!

I told Nate the closet super exceeded my expectations.  The color is perfect and makes it so much easier to see, the racks and corner unit are just right, everything!  Good job future Dad!

Such a fun pop of color for the room!

This is a big weekend for the nursery - the room is getting painted and our crib is getting delivered!  OMG!  Things are getting real!

  1. Hi Laura,

    LOVE your baby's closet!!! Your closet gave me inpo to purchase the same Pax corner unit for my closet as well. Can you please tell me the dimensions of the shelves you installed to the right of the unit? Going to add the same type of shelving, and the depth of your shelves work perfectly installed next to the Pax unit.

    Thanks for your help!

    1. Thank you so much!! I just measured and it is exactly 12" deep. It really is a perfect unit if you have a closet like this! :)
