Now it would be really difficult to appreciate this master closet makeover without seeing how it started out.
Take a look:
Had enough? Me too! Gross, huh? My husband and I both shared this closet and there was a lot of wasted space. That’s when I dug out my graph paper and pencil and got to work measuring, creating the perfect space.
This closet is pretty dinky for a master closet in a house that was built in the 80’s. It was crucial that I lay it out just right to maximize it’s potential.
I added a lot of shelves to help divide the space as well as create a place to store socks, undergarments, etc. I love that I can get completely dressed from my closet without having to dig through my dresser.
I’ll admit I do not own a ton of beautiful shoes. I am a nurse currently staying home with two boys. There aren’t a whole lot of places I go that require beautiful shoes but I still need shoe storage for my not-so-beautiful shoes, right?
Baskets to hold my belts…
This hook that holds my scarves is actually part of a leftover towel rack from the master bath redo. The hole that normally holds the towel bar is on the other side.
This wall paper was also left over from the master bath renovation. I pieced it together to cover the back wall.
We put bead board on the ceiling. This is the click-in type but honestly I think we could have gotten away with a sheet of bead board paneling here.
Lot’s of bins to hold things make the closet appear neat and organized.
This shelf was made tall enough to accommodate tall boots.
More bins along the top to maximize storage while keeping it neat.
Side-by-side before and afters:
Ah…so lovely and organized!
I was originally planning to install french doors but it looks so pretty, I decided to leave it open!
This ended up being the perfect home for my new ($5) table!
(You can check out the before and how to here.) It’s perfect for sitting on to put on socks and shoes!
