Looking around on Pinterest & Instagram showed a great deal of creativity in the wallpaper space. Being that our modules are open back, this gives us a great opportunity for a nice wall pop.
I found some lovely options via Target, & chose this grey and white chevron pattern because it's light & not too committal. It'll pops nicely behind the closet units & will go nicely with red accents.
Target's Devine Colors wallpapers were a go for my project, & I chose this pattern & cut the strips to size.
Here's a supertip: I used one of the smooth metal hanging rods from the Double Hanging unit I had as a squeegie-like mechanism to smooth down the air bubbles trapped under the wallpaper. Worked like a charm!
Getting all the chevrons to line up on the wall was challenging, reminding me how much I hate putting up wall paper. But, I must say, the finished result gave me renewed faith in myself & humanity.
Here's the finished wallpapered wall:
I decided to use the following sections for my children's closet configuration:
The Double Hanging on the left would allow for a nice bit of hanging space, with shelving in the Shelf Tower to the left. In the center, my 36" space would give me a ton of flexibility for different things- a desk, a reading nook (see pics below), more hanging or storage, etc.
I first attempted a reading nook area here. Reading nooks are a great way to allot some safe, private space to your child- a "me" place- filled with all their favorite cozy toys and books. A place for their imaginations to run wild. And for yours too. Make a blanket fort. A pillow igloo. The more the better. The lower shelves on my Shelf Tower here were perfect for books & toys.
A nice bed sheet with some string lighting makes for a super great, comfy tent reading nook.
For my desk measuring 36" wide, I reconfigured a Modular Closets Shelf & Rod Kit. I simply did not use the rod from the Shelf & Rod kit, and used the rear hanging rail that normally attaches to the wall as a front panel for the desk.
The Shelf & Rod Kit includes two side support panels I attached to the two flanking units to support the desk shelf.
