Wow, seems like there is so much to do, but I did make a little progress this last week on my Master Bedroom Closet Makeover for the
Since I started a week late, I had to do double duty to catch up. I can't fall too far behind if I want to finish on time. You can see where I started and my plan for the closet makeover here.
Since this is a cosmetic makeover not a gut job, I am trying to make what we have as functional as possible, and I want to add a little glam at the same time too. I'm working with builder basic - no fancy custom organizers.
I emptied out the closet and did some fun painting for an accent wall. I also plan to redo those wire shelves, I just have to decide which fabric to use.
Remember this shelf I showed you with my overflow quilts and blankets that don't fit in my tiny (20" wide) linen closet.
We added a shelf to this space and after purging and refolding (I put all the quilts in pillowcases to keep them clean), everything fits nice and neat. I have plans for a fabric shade to cover these up. I love the spotted fabric on the bottom of the shelf, it's where I got the wall inspiration. I'm leaning towards the floral fabric in the above pic for the shade and then use the spots on the basket liners. I am still trying to decide on that. I have some surprise bling for the back of the bottom shelf.
I got all of mine and hubby's clothes purged. I was amazed at what all I had stuffed in this closet. When you have a small house and limited storage like I do, it seems I crammed half the world in this poor space. I took a full car load to Goodwill and filled 2 huge lawn trash bags. Then it took 2 days to change out the hangers and rearrange things, but it really does look so much better. Slim-line velvet hangers are the new must have and Ross has tons of them at the best prices I could find-25 for $9.99. They didn't have enough that I needed in one color, so I used all black hangers on my side and beige ones for hubby. I bought some really nice wood hangers for our jackets, suits and my skirts. They were $5.99 for 5.
My storage bins and shoe cabinets are supposed to be here on the 18th. I am anxious to get those and get everything organized.
