Switching things up ... yet again

I don't know about everyone else, but I am forever changing things in my house. I think this is because I am slightly OCD, and I keep changing things around until they work well for my family. 

One area in my house I struggle with keeping organized is our clothing storage, or lack there of. I have a small townhouse that was built before WWI, so the closets are teeny tiny. There is no way I'm fitting all of my clothes in the 3 ft. wide closet I have in my bedroom. I finally decided to switch the bedrooms around and use my son's tiny bedroom as a walk in closet for the whole family.

I guess that since the boy is now a teen, his room needs an update anyway. Here is the original post showing his bedroom from a few years ago when we first moved in. 

As you can see, it's pretty small. I did love how it turned out, the colors were so bright and cheerful. They matched my son's personality before, but now he has become a dreaded TEENAGER. I have seen several of my neighbors turn this bedroom into a walk in closet, so the idea has always been in the back of my min.

However, I am way too cheap to buy a fancy closet system for this room, so I am going to use what I have and buy as little as possible. I do have two big IKEA cabinets that I am going to move in here to start with. They used to be in my daughter's room, but since I am taking all her clothes out anyway, she will not need them.

Do you have clothing storage problems, or are you lucky enough to have tons of closet space?
