Your closet is primarily a place to store and organize, but have you given any thought to the closet doors? The doors of your closet can pull double duty as a chalkboard, a bookcase, or an additional space for organization. Don’t believe us? Keep reading!
If you have an extra over-the-door shoe organizer just lying around, hang it on the inside of your closet. Not only can you use it to store shoes, but it can also be used for cleaning supplies, craft supplies, or children’s toys, depending on where the closet is located. The pockets on most organizers are the perfect size for dolls and spray bottles. Try one in the pantry or garage as well; both have items that would fit into the compartments.
If you have kids around and would like a more labor-intensive project, try chalkboard or magnetic paint. By painting a section or two of the outside of the closet doors, you instantly have a new creative outlet for the kids. A variety of chalkboard and magnetic paints are available on the market, and they can even be layered to create a magnetic chalkboard good for both drawing and magnetic letters.
The most amazing (and the hardest) closet door project we could find? A folding bookcase door, pictured above. DIY Network has instructions and videos if you think this project is for you. It’s a nice way to maximize storage and dress up your bedroom, but it can also be a costly and time-consuming project.
