Nursery Organization DIY for Baby's Closet


baby nursery organizerFound this smart little nursery organization DIY over on Young House Love -- where Jen Woodhouse popped over from The House of Wood and boy, is she nesting. Big time!

Alright Jen! And thanks for sharing.

If you're a first-time mom-to-be, you may not know yet just how many beautiful teeny tiny clothes go unworn because they're tucked in a drawer and your baby grows a size before you get around to opening that drawer again.

This fun closet-organizing idea will help put an end to forgotten onesies and rompers.

Jen bought these blank clothing dividers -- just like the size marker dividers you see swirled around the racks in department stores -- from an online supply store (Google “clothing dividers”) for just $0.29 each. Use them to divide baby clothes sizes into quick-reference sections in baby's closet.

You'll want to add the infant sizes to the baby clothes dividers (NB, 3m, 6m, 9m, etc.) and then decorate them any way you like. Or use Jen's colorful downloadable templates, print them out on white full-sheet labels, cut them out, and stick them on the dividers.

Aren't these adorable? Fun and functional!

How do you keep your infant's closet organized?

very smart and pretty idea! i just separated the drawer into sizes, we don't have enough closet space to hang the clothes for baby.

This sounds like a really good idea. I will have to try this the next go around.

Cute idea but honestly, I didn't have the time to "organize" like this when my daughter (or son) were infants....they grew way too fast and I was way too busy...but if I'd have HAD that kind of time, I'd have probably gone for this.

I grouped all his clothes to age/size on a hanging rack and then I had bigger sizes in his closet.

Loved your ideas! I hang up their clothes and try to keep their shoes lined up. That is about it :)

What a cute idea! When my son was an infant I just put his clothes in a drawer and labeled the drawers by age.
