The completed cubby in the closet

Now my daughter’s canvas bins are off the floor, and there is a flat surface on which we can store other things in her closet, like her piggy bank and some of the stuffed animals she has been gifted. :) I love that our garage is a little less crowded today, too.


  1. Way to re-purpose! This is going to be so adorable in your daughter's room! :)

    1. I got home late again today, but as soon as I get some lunch in my system, I'll finish this piece and start the design for the reading bench. :)

  2. Love it! This is soooo cute, and it fits perfectly! Beautiful job!
