One Room Challenge Week 6 – EasyClosets Installation

It’s week 6 of the One Room Challenge from Linda at Calling It Home. Normally this would be the week where I share the big reveal, but Linda decided that due to numerous natural disasters affecting participants’ plans, the challenge would be extended by one week. So next week I’ll be showing pictures of my daughter’s bedroom update. This week is all about our EasyClosets installation.

Storage is one of my top priorities in this girl's bedroom redesign.

Closet Design plan

In my week four post, I shared the before pictures of my daughter’s under-utilized bedroom closet. We were debating between some DIY closet system options, as well as professional installation.  After some deliberation, my husband and I decided that EasyClosets.com would be the best route. I read about several other blogger’s experiences with installation and decided it was doable for us. read more

One Room Challenge Week 4 – Closet Design

If there’s one thing I’ve learned during past One Room Challenges, it’s that things don’t always go as planned. I came down with a nasty cold this week, and my kids have fall break for two weeks, so it’s not the most productive time. As I continue updating my daughter’s bedroom, storage is one of the top priorities so I want to be sure to maximize the large closet in this room.

During this round of the One Room Challenge, I'm updating my daughter's bedroom with a slightly more grown-up design.

In week one, I shared the before pictures of my 9 year old daughter’s bedroom, including the completely underused closet. At 105″ wide, it’s got plenty of room for both clothing and toy storage. We had a temporary hanging bar up for clothes, but that came down when my son decided to hang on it. I’d also like to state for the record that I had zero part in hanging the map on this wall… with staples. Anyway, the design plans we’re looking at really take advantage of the size and offer a lot of different types of storage. read more
