Check out my closet I just gave a cute makeover to! This closet under the stairs has always been an impractical eyesore. I have had the hardest time making it functional… until now! Check out the transformation!
Here is the info on the products I used!
Table of Contents
The bookcases are Billy bookcases from Ikea. With lumber prices through the roof right now, these were a very practical and affordable alternative! I purchased 4 different bookcases and assembled each before putting them in the closet.

Short and slim bookcase – https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/billy-bookcase-white-80263832/

I chose to use peel and stick floor tile for this closet for a few reasons. It’s super affordable, fast, water resistant and easy to clean! Plus, it’s so darn cute. I placed it over stained concrete, but it goes over a variety of surfaces. I love how it brightened the space up and I also love that it was done in 30 mintues 😉
You can see the peel and stick tile I used HERE! Free shipping and mine came same day!
For the wood on top of the shorter bookcases, I used edge glued pine panels from Lowe’s. With lumber being so high currently, these are a great alternative when you need a larger surface of wood. Also, they take stain really pretty! You can find them HERE and they have several sizes depending on what you need. I used Golden Oak stain on mine.
I used my very favorite storage tubs one one wall of the closet. I LOVE these things. They hold a ton and they come in cute colors too. You can find them HERE! I used the medium size for the cubbies on mine and it’s a perfect fit!
I used baskets for the bookcase against the back wall. These are great and also a perfect fit for this space. You can find them HERE! I used the small size.
Shiplap Wall Panels
I wanted to add a little something on the wall above the shorter shelves so I used THESE WALL PANELS. They are a great price and come pre-finished which is an added bonus!
I painted the closet with Sherwin-Williams Pure White which was a great match to the already finished Ikea cabinets.
I love the outcome!
