My Closet Makeover
I have been working on some projects around the house. We have very little closet space, every inch counts.
So I decided to work on re-organizing my closet.
I started by removing everything and sorting, donating, organizing everything by season.
That got me to thinking. While I have everything removed, it’s a good time to repaint, so I painted the walls with my new favorite color “Slate” from Restoration Hardware. It made the closet look so much better, but it really made the old carpeting look shabby. So, while I was at it, I ripped out the carpet and installed a wood floor with the scraps left over from our kids bathroom remodel and voila!
Then I purchased a chest of drawers from Pier 1 in an antiqued mirror finish. I also had the husband hang a mirror I purchased at IKEA that didn’t work in the space I bought it for. I’m glad I hung onto it, it works perfectly! I also put a little bud vase with some orchids and some photos I already had on hand:
Then I purchased these pretty gray paisley fabric containers to hold some out of season items as well as some totes and handbags.
Taupe hangers from The Container Store allowed me to organized my clothing by color. I also had some shoe organizer’s I picked up at IKEA. I plan on making some tags to put on them so I know what each one contains.
I’m planning on putting in a chandelier next.
