Ikea Hack Attack: The DIY Munchkin Closet

I love the convenience & excitement of big city living but space is always an issue…

The kiddo & her wardrobe had completely outgrown the dresser that once oh-so-neatly stored her little clothes & accessories and my search for something larger (yet small enough to fit into the scant space available in her room) revealed nil, so…

I once again hit the As-Is section of Ikea & let my imagination take over:

our old Ikea Gorm shelf + an As-Is Mulig clothing valet + a bit of creativity =

a groovy new munchkin closet that fits perfectly in the last remaining space in her room!

after painting the Gorm shelving unit blue I simply rearranged the shelves & removed the center wood slat from the top shelf to allow the valet space to peek through

added a couple of old coffee table legs to the inside of the unit for more hanging space

and popped some storage bins onto the shelves!

all the tutes!

My fantastic new-to-me crocheted tunic (thrifted for only a €1!) definitely deserved some equally awesome bohemian bottoms…so I snatched a pair of loose fitting jeans from my stash, grabbed my scissors & got to work!

The result? An adorable outfit with flower child flair!

Here’s how to make a pair of your own perfectly patched jeans:
