If you live in an older home, you’re familiar with Adrienne’s struggle with storage — namely, that there isn’t any! Her 1930’s home is lacking in the closet department, so it was up to her to come up with some creative storage solutions for her four-year-old’s room.

She found this old slightly warped and musty armoire at an antique store, and for less than $100 (including the armoire!) she created this fun, playful piece. Her daughter helped her design and plan the artwork, and she even used her handprints as the horses (and the Eiffel Tower side doubles as a growth chart!)

I love the cheerful designs and the bold colors, and the fact that Adrienne’s daughter Rose got to be involved in the creative process!

Thanks, Adrienne!
