HOW TO TURN A CLOSET INTO a NURSERY


1.TAKE OUT THE CLOSET DOORS

2. DECORATE WITH WALLPAPER

Let's face it-a closet isn't exactly the most inviting and can feel claustrophobic. When turning the closet into a nursery, focus on making it as inviting and stylish as you possibly can. Decorating with wallpaper is an easy way to add color, a fun pattern, and interest to the walls.
