Nobody puts baby in a corner. But the closet? As my husband and I ponder baby number two, the question of space keeps coming up. Our two-bedroom home already houses three people, a dog, a cat, and a turtle – where would we put a new addition? We do have a lot of big closets, and the thought of converting one into a nursery has crossed my mind. To get inspired, I hunted down 10 creative nurseries built into closets. These closet nurseries make the most of small space and have lots of little details to keep the rooms cozy but still feeling open. Check out these 10 Cool & Creative nurseries in converted closets and get inspired…

Just remember not to hang things over the crib like in the first photo! God forbid if falls off the fall onto your baby!

We did this in our apartment with our DD's crib! LOL! It wasn't all fancy though... We just took the door off and used the walk in closet as a crib nook! HaHa!

I LOVe the one where the 2 boys have their own little cubbie spaces

Way cute but I kept thinking of pinched fingers against the wall and that stuff being pulled down by the baby!

That is an awesome idea! I was getting concerned since we just bought our house 2 years ago and we are already growing out of it. But now, I have the perfect extra nursery as my walk in closet is huge! :)

 I used my MBR sitting room with mine when they were babies and toddlers, but that's really a neat idea!
