Jack’s bedroom is lacking a closet and the older he gets, the more disastrous his room becomes. I was unsure what to do with the room when we moved to this house back in February, and sadly his room hasn’t improved much since that time. There is a bookshelf, a small two-drawer unit, and some bins for toys. Jack’s clothes tend to sit in a large canvas bag I got from Pottery Barn…now you know why “obtain wardrobe storage for Jack’s room” was on my 110 in 2010 list.
Thanks to the wonder that is craigslist, I was able to cross off one of those 110 goals yesterday. I got a sweet deal on a used Kullen wardrobe from IKEA. The owner dropped it off and now it’s ours! David started putting it together last night while I cleared space in Jack’s room for the behemoth piece of furniture. I’m hoping to get it into his room tonight and start organizing!
I don’t expect this wardrobe is the complete solution for Jack’s room. It seems like it will take care of the mess that is his clothing, and I may be able to shove a storage bin of toys in there, as well. I will probably need more storage bins, though. Ideas? Suggestions? I’m definitely not the best at organizing, even though I feel very accomplished when it’s done! Even if it’s not a complete solution, though it will be a BIG improvement.
