    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.
