DIY| Put Your Tween’s Bed in The Closet for More Room
Hi everyone, today I am sharing how I put my tween’s bed in her closet to allow her more space in her small bedroom. When we bought our house over a year ago, I was thrilled that it had 5 bedrooms and a 6th if we finish the back room off our patio. Now even though the rooms are all small, and we have a small cottage like home (that I love btw), I new it would be a challenge to make room for beds and dressers mainly in the kids bedrooms. I have moved Bella (my daughters) bed in two other positions in her room, but new that if I tucked part of her bed into her closet, we would gain just over a foot of space. So that is what I did last weekend. I wasn’t sure of the look, until I hung some sheer curtains to frame out the closet frame and then took a bunch of cut fabric and looped it over the closet pole.
Once the closet was framed out in some fabric and such, creating a cozy-princess like space, it made the bed look so much better. I decorated the top closet shelf with stuff my daughter loves, as well as her gallery walls. I want her room to always reflect the things she likes, i.e. color, unicorns, pineapples, pink, mint, yellow etc. Now, I realize a lot of you may be wondering where her clothes, “dresses” are? I know when I shared her room on my Instagram stories a few days ago, I kept getting DM’S about that. If you notice in the pictures she does have a dresser, for clothes, as well as a deep closet cupboard, that is barely showing in the one image. It has a DIY chalkboard painted on it. Anyway, I hung a pole inside the closet cupboard for her dresses and jackets. She also keeps shoes in a cute mint basket on the side of her bed under her window, as well as in a larger basket in our entry closet.
If any of you are struggling with a small bedroom space for your child/tween/teen, try moving or positioning their bed in their closet. I have seen on Pinterest some really cute cribs in closets too. Now, all that said, I realize most closets aren’t like mine. Our house is 42 years old, so our closets are small like the bedrooms. None, the less I hope this posts helps you all, or inspires you if you are having small room space issues.
Moving a bench I thrifted and painted a few years ago, across from her bed, creating a great little sitting area for her and her friends. Plus it fits perfectly on the wall under her cute gallery wall stuff.
