Three big drawers in this bedroom closet takethe place of a dresser, and theres a slide outlaundry hamper. Big doors conceala changing table.

Before his son arrived, Brett Gardnertransformed this bedroom from floor toceiling. He didnt want to crowd the smallroom with furniture, so he converted thecloset into space-efficient, multipurpose,built-in cabinetry. Three big drawers takethe place of a dresser, and theres a slide outlaundry hamper. Big doors conceala changing table. When diapering daysare over, Brett will install a closet rod forhanging clothes in that space. The coathooks and shelves to the left are recessedinto the wall between studs.

I declared the roomoff-limits to my wife,worked like mad for twomonths and unveiledthe finished projecton Mothers Day. Brett Gardner
