DIY Kids Space Closet

Make your own under the stairs space closet with this tutorial from Angela Rose.

You guys, nothing brings out my inner nerd more than making fun themed spaces for my kids. It makes me so happy! Remember the DIY Hogwarts Great Hall? And the Giant Lite Brite? And did you see the way I geeked out over my dad’s Eclipse photos? I’ve always been fascinated by space!

Over the last two years, both of my boys have become OBSESSED with outer space. As in, they put together their own space presentations for Aubrey and me. It’s the best!

Hence, the reason for this under the stairs space closet!

I would have been over the moon (pun intended) to have a freaking SPACE CLOSET in my house when I was a kid.

Sometimes when I start a project, my vision for it changes along the way. For the most part, this DIY built-in mudroom project turned out pretty close to what I imagined.

While I debated doing open or closed lockers, I figured the extra step to open the lockers and hang a backpack wouldn’t work well for my kids. So I went with open dividers and I love the way it turned out!

I’m sharing with you all the steps I followed to create a DIY built-in mudroom for my kids (and myself!) in our house.
