    • Baby Changing Station

      A canvas diaper caddy and wall-mounted storage unit keep necessities within arm's reach, and a changing dresser stows other essentials out of sight. With three drawers and shelving behind its door, it can hide away blankets, diapers, and even that bulky vaporizer.

    • Pretty Pegboard

      A grade up from the usual perforated board, this modular decorator pegboard comes in several colors and has catchall accessories to keep necessities within reach, as well as to display keepsakes.

    • Built-In Closet Storage

      To make every inch count, we gave ready-to-assemble cubes a custom fit in the closet by trimming them with quarter-round molding and topping with a piece of plywood. We didn't have the ideal height to stack two levels of hanging clothes so they'd be still within reach, so we faked it by staggering the rods.

    • Savvy Storage to the Rescue

      It's not difficult to find storage if you know where to look. Install a wall ledge for storing wall art and implement a dust ruffle to hide under-crib storage.

    • Hidden Spaces

      Under the crib is prime real estate. Whether you're storing clothes from last season or for next, peekaboo boxes stash them neatly. And with a skirt to conceal the wares, no one will ever know they're there.

    • Shelf Help

      Tucking neatly within the wall panels, two narrow L-shaped shelves appear interlocking when mounted together.

    • All in a Row

      Building kitchen base cabinets into the wall takes full advantage of unused crawlspace in this upper-level room. If this built-in trick doesn't work for you, simply anchor cabinets to the wall and top them with a laminate or wood countertop.

    • Small Cupboards Corral

      Small cupboards are perfect to corral pint-size clothes. Integrate cabinets with pullout baskets, see-through fronts, and open shelving for pretty bins. Try hardworking drawers, too -- they are simply indispensable.

    • Take Stock

      This petite nursery had no closet, so we hit a home center to check out stock cabinetry. For a changing dresser, we transformed a kitchen island on wheels. Make sure you lock the wheels to keep it in place.

      Multifunctional Dresser

      A changing table usually has short life, but this multifunctional dresser grows with your baby. A fresh color and a changing pad turns this mirrored antique into the ideal spot to hide diapers and other baby supplies. Behind the doors, baskets keep small items in order.
