As you have seen from other posts, my husband is quite handy. If you haven't seen any projects he has done around our place, click on 'hubby projects' on the right side under 'Labels', and you can see just a few. Let's face it, though. There are only so many hours in a day and Kevin spends roughly 12 hours of the day away from home. He can't do every project my crazy brain dreams up. *sigh*
I needed a fix for this closet.
The clothes where up way too high for a 4 yr old and 2 yr old to use. Plus, the clothes (summer and winter) were packed in and hard for me deal with. There needed to be a lower rod and some shelving/drawers of some sort.
My first attempt was a flop. My faceframe split on me and I had trouble getting the joints right. So I took a break.
The kids HAVE to be able to help out around here and that includes being able to put clean clothes away. So I got the bug again a couple of weeks ago. Round 2 went much smoother.
I took over a small part of the basement and got to work. I had the MDF cut from Round 1 and decided to confiscate a couple of 1x2 pine boards from another project. Once it was all put together, I painted it white.
It then fit like a dream in the closet! Now both kids can put clothes away and get dressed all by themselves. A huge help for me and a huge boost in confidence for them. Win - Win!
I secured the shelf to the wall using drywall anchors and screws. The lower rods are left over from a Closetmaid purchase made last year. It's lacking a top, but I'm still trying to decide what I want - painted white or stained wood.
I'll let you know when I've decide on a top and if I'm going to make drawers or just get baskets for storage.
