Kids love to build impromptu forts—hiding inside tents, nooks, and improvised shelters makes them feel protected from imaginary monsters, frightful creatures, and the rest of the outside world. We’ve seen a lot of DIY and ready-to-buy tent options on Pinterest and all over the blogosphere lately, but one idea makes my heart skip a beat: the repurposed closet.
That ugly monster that hides in every kid’s closet? Well, there’s nowhere for him to hide anymore, because these spaces brilliantly transform a basic closet space into a fantastic play area or sleeping corner. How cool is that?
Of course, you’ll have to reorganize the room and store the closet contents in a dresser or chest of drawers or utilize some other storage option. But imagine how wonderful it would be for your child to have a hidden space like one of these in his or her room! Hey, monsters and ugly night creatures, move away—we’re taking over the closet!
