Linen Closet

When we moved into our home, I was a little disappointed that we didn’t have a linen closet! Of course, not having a large linen closet means I only keep the linens that are absolutely necessary which means less clutter in my house!

We’ve kept extra bedding in our blanket chest and extra towels in the guest bathroom! However, with the baby coming we needed to move the extra towels out of the bathroom cabinet to make room for the baby bathtub, towels and toiletries!

We had a tiny little nook over our air return that John David turned into a small linen closet!



He put two shelves in the closet for me! The best thing is this cost us $0 because we used leftover supplies from Paxton’s Closet Makeover! (It’s my scrapbook storage spot and my linen closet!)

Here is my “new” closet with my linens!

He put slats of wood on the walls to hold the shelves. The shelves are made of particleboard and covered with contact paper instead of painting! A very frugal and simple home improvement project!

  1. Gotta love free projects!
    The closet turned out nicely! Great job!!!

    We needed more storage space, and seeing as we own two houses (our primary home and the house next door we call our “shed house” is dilapidated), hubby took the kitchen cabinets out of the dilapidated house and put them in our primary home. It took him a day to get everything done, but it’s so nice to have cabinets instead of a shelf on the top of the closet (that I cant see anyways!)

    Cost to us: Nada. Zilch.
    Love it!


    1. Yes…free projects are the best!! How smart to put your unused cabinets in your closet! I’m sure that will make your organizing much easier too!!
