We needed more food storage and we knew this shortly after moving here so we converted the entryway closet into the food pantry. Coats and jackets were moved to the extra bedroom closet, which is now Maleiah's closet.
In Maleiah's room we decided to do something on her window wall as well but we wanted it to be different. We opted for bookshelves on either side and we put my mother's old church pew in between to act as a window seat. The bookshelves are gorgeous and they hold toys, quilts, books and other mementos. She is getting older and has more toys and we are going to need that closet soon! (hint, hint)
Justin enjoys building things and it is nice to see something and have him say, "I can make that." Yeah! Less expensive! Yeah! Using our space creatively and purposefully. :)
