When I shared my Master Closet Makeover (Part 1) last week I promised to show you what I did with all my husband’s clothes. Ladies, if you ever get the chance to have the closet to yourself, take it! Just be sure your honey’s clothes find a new home.
Here’s my husband’s new closet:
Do you know where this space came from? If you read about my master bath redo, you might already know.
Here is what this space used to be:
It was where our old vanity was before we moved it into the bathroom. (It’s across from the old master closet.)
Real nice…like straight out of 1984.
After taking a few measurements, I found that this would be a perfect new closet for my honey! (& a way for me to get more closet space!!!)
So again, I started planning it out on graph paper and got to work.
This is what I came up with:
Now everything has a place.
I didn’t go into much detail about how my closet was constructed when I shared it last week. I was too busy showing off how pretty it was, but you can see how I built mine here.
All shelving is pine which I primed and painted prior to making any cuts.
I put the shoe tower below together first and attached all other shelving to this. I just used a nail gun to attach the shelving to the sides. (I attached the left side of the shelving from the outside before placing the tower in the closet.) That’s plenty for just holding shoes.
I had a gentleman at the store where I purchased the wood make the cuts for the shoe tower. However, no two were cut exactly the same so I had to trim them when it came time to put this section together.
So a lessen from me: If you have someone else make cuts for shelving that is going to be installed flush to either side, make sure they know you need them to be EXACTLY the same size. I cut the shelving for my closet and the rest of this one myself.
After everything was installed, I did some touching up with caulk and gave it a final fresh coat of paint.
I used the same bins across the top here as I used in my own closet for continuity. The black bins came from Target.
You can see that the braces I used to hold the horizontal shelving came all the way out to the door frame on the right side. That was so I could attach them to studs.
This closet faces mine. I am actually standing in my closet taking this picture! To the left is the door to the bathroom and to the right is the door to our master bedroom. We walk through the closet area to get to our bathroom. I kept the same color scheme for both to make the two areas seem like one big room.
Here is what my closet looks like:
I know I made out in this deal but I made my husband happy too.
