ORC-Master Bedroom Closet Makeover-Week 5

I hope you are having as much fun as I am following along with all the ORC Makeovers.  Thanks again to Linda @ Calling It Home for hosting.

This is the push week to get things done.  Next week is the big reveal.  I still have tons to do, but slowly it is all coming together.  If you are new you can catch up here - here - here.

If you have been following along then you know this is a cosmetic makeover -  no fancy closet organizers, just working with my builder basic.  This week was all about storage and a few "pretty things".  I finally got the fabric shade made to cover this shelf and it looks amazing. 

 I needed a place to store all those quilts and comforters that won't fit in my tiny linen closet, and the only space I could find was our closet.  We have 91/2 ft. ceilings, so we added a shelf up high and it is perfect to hold everything. I folded everything neatly and placed them in pillow cases to keep them clean.  Then I needed a shade or something to cover them up.

I think the shade was the perfect solution.

It makes a pretty backdrop for my "glamour shelf" too.

More storage is always a welcome addition.  I still needed space for more handbags, so I spray painted a piece of wire shelving gold and added it up high on this corner.  Perfect spot for my backpack and extra handbags.

You can see the top of a gold mirror-a little primping spot I'm still working on.

This basket drawer unit is my last stumbling point.  I want to dress them up somehow and couldn't figure out what I wanted to do.  Hubby came to the rescue with a fabulous solution.  Can't wait to get it finished and show you.

I am thrilled with how the closet is turning out.  A little DIY, Paint and a lot of purging has worked wonders so far.  Yip Skip!!!! I am alsmost done.

Things left to do:
Purge clothes
Add extra shelves
Finish painting
Change out hangers
Re-organize hanging areas
Makeover Wire Baskets
Make Fabric Shade
Revamp bookcases into Shoe Cabinets
Add Storage Boxes
Find Mirror, Knobs and Hooks
Find more wood hangers for slacks
