The kiddo & her wardrobe had completely outgrown the small dresser that once oh-so-neatly stored her little clothes & accessories and my search for something larger (yet small enough to fit into the scant space available in her room) revealed nil, so…

And popped some storage bins onto the shelves and the kiddo's fancy space saving closet was complete!
