Noticing there was a lot of unnecessary stuff (and wasted space) in her son’s closet, Ashley decided to clear out the clutter and add some fun. This just might be the coolest closet ever!

I spent a lot of time reading in my closet as a child, and if it had looked like this, I’d never have left!

From Ashley:

The closet in my son’s room wasn’t useful or well organized.
For under $100, we created a space that still has storage but is a space that is visually pleasing and fun to play in.
You couldn’t open up the right side of the closet without the door to his room being completely closed because the door to his closet and the door to his room would hit. We took off the door to the right-side of the closet awhile back and just dealt with the ugliness of the closet being viewed from the room. After awhile, I realized we didn’t even need most of the stuff in the closet. With that in mind, I realized that we could turn the closet into a fun reading loft space that would be used. So, that’s what we did! It’s a win-win for our family!

Thank you Ashley!
