Design Your Dream Closet
Tricked-Out Twin Storage
Ben and Devon LePore, 10-year-old twins from Chatham, New Jersey, barely used their closets (they don’t have a lot of hanging clothes), so the spaces were cluttered with random family items. The challenge: Reclaim these storage spots for the boys, and set them up to handle kid chaos.
Before: Filled With Forgotten Items
Mom’s mementos, like the Kelly green dress Megan wore as prom queen, had taken over the left-hand closet. The right-hand space was littered with baseball cards, outgrown clothes, and old shopping bags.
Found In (and Removed From) Ben and Devon’s Closets
- 2 crib bumpers
- 3 piles of loose baby photos
- 1 Kirby “I want to be a dentist” stuffed elf
