lets take a look at the before.
square closet with 3 wire closet racks, one window not pictured, and beige carpet.pretty basic. pretty boring.
coming from our last place this closet was not ready for us.
our last closet was also a walk in with 5 closet rods, and 2 towers of cubbie/drawer sytems. AND we fit a chest of drawers at the back.
that’s right 2 sets of double hang rods, and a single rod that i used for long dresses. Cubbie/drawers that fit socks, workout gear, bathing suits, purses, a basket for flat shoes, more workout gear, undershirts, etc. And with space to fit a whole 6 drawer unit.
[We had to get rid of the chest of drawers because space is different here but we still have a dresser which is in front of our bed.]
this closet has a window which is nice cause it brings in a lot of light but it does take away from some space which could have been used for storage. im not so mad about it though, our last closet was dark and im all for adding natural light.
First up on the list was redoing the carpet. Since we redid the floors in our room, it made sense to do the closet as well.
Then I added some paint.
Who says closets should be plain white? -Color is Sherwin Williams Stream.
Next was the assembly of this Shoecase (Ikea Billy Bookcase). I bought 2 extra shelves to add in as well. Thinking about getting a third..
Last closet we didn’t have any good spot for storing shoes, so i fixed that in this one 🙂 Especially because D and I both have a good amount of them.
I moved the shoecase around a little bit til i found the right corner for it.
And then I took this 25″ Custom Closet Organizer and set it up.
and the right side, before my dress rod went up
And then it turned into:
we still need to add the shelving to the D’s side and an additional shelf above my dress rod and then it will be complete. mostly.
