Happy Friday guys! Last weekend, I finally got my sons dreaded drop zone of a closet organized by doing a DIY kids closet makeover using the freedomRail system by Organized Living. I am very particular about what things occupy his space, and how things occupy his space. I just want him to be relaxed and inspired in his space, so I try to make sure that the areas around him fit that criteria With my thought process, organization is key!
A few months ago, I got to makeover my master closet space utilizing the freedomRail system, so when I had the opportunity to add create a more organized and functional DIY kids closet makeover with tons of kid-friendly organizing tips for my son, I jumped at the opportunity and I absolutely loved how it came out.
When we started, just a week ago, his closet was honestly in shambles.
I despise wire shelving because I honestly feel that it lacks zero functionality where needed. We’ve lived with it of course since we moved in, but nothing beats the freedomRail system.
Installing the components of the freedomRail system are super simple, and you are provided link which contains an installation video.
Just like when I ordered my system for my master closet, I got to work with an Organized Living rep who input all of the measurements of my space, and provided me a rendering. I got to play around with the rendering until it was to my liking.
Once confirmed and ordered, the system is sent in several boxes with all of the pieces needed to install. The only tools needed to install your system is a pencil, leveler, drill, and stud finder. All of the components are marked and steps are clear. You can read all about how I installed my original system here.
Prior to installation, I had to purge my sons closet. I got rid of so many toys and clothes that no longer fit. I have to admit, it was freeing!
Then I removed the old system simply by popping each bracket with a hammer. After all of the old shelving was removed, I was left with multiple small holes in the wall. I filled them with joint compound and sanding them until they were smooth (enough). I then painted the inside an ultra-pure white by Behr.
I knew that I wanted a pop inside of his closet. Plain white or even painting it another solid color just wasn’t going to do it. With all of the squareness going on, with the doorway and inside of the closet, I knew that painting the inside with a softer shape was ideal. Then it hit me, an arch in the center of the closet would be perfect. I opted to paint it the same color as his blue dresser, The color is Cobalt Blue by Behr.
Once I finished, I absolutely loved it! It was a great call!
Now to the fun part. Watching it all come together.
The freedomRail System allows you the opportunity to move shelving as needed. I opted to remove the bottom shelf to add my sons toy storage basket.
After adding in his clothing and storage items, I AM IN LOVE! I knew it would be a transformation but wow! I love it, but honestly, closets are really my thing🙂
So let’s get into the details of this makeover, and how I organized his things. I plan to add some labels at some point.
In his baskets are some of his smaller toys, which are in arms reach, along with some of his past karate accolades, etc.
The left side hold his long sleeve and short sleeve button up shirts. The lower left holds jeans, which he does not have many of after my purge, lol. Time to shop.
My son loves his costumes. I am happy to have an area that he can easily access them.
His long sleeve sweatshirts and jackets are placed just above them.
So that’s pretty much it, guys! What do you think?
I am a huge fan and strongly stand by the freedomRail system and highly recommend. If you would like to check out Organized Living and look further into the freedomRail system, you can check out all they have to offer.
