Today, I am sharing another one of our house fix ups. The closet was actually one of the first things I tackled, but it took a long time for me to finish. When I say that EVERYTHING in the house has been an issue, I mean it. Even my closet. In the master bathroom, there is a walk in closet, which I naturally claimed as my own and made Charlie put his stuff in a guest bedroom closet.
When my dad and I went to start working on it, we realized that the weird wire shelving they used made giant holes in the wall. I hate that wire shelving. It made the space completely unusable. It took us an entire day to get all of the shelving down (the screws would not come out of the walls!). So then I spend two days filling in holes and repainting the walls. It was a nightmare.
This is what it looked like after we were done, without clothes. We used Closet Maid Selective pieces from Home Depot. I like the way you can design what you need to fit your space. We were able to modify the pieces fairly easily so that I had exactly what I needed. On one side, we used the shelves (which is perfect for my shoes) that had the bars on either side. On the other side we used the drawers with the bars. You can have double bars, which I did for my shirts, but the other side just has the single bars for dresses and skirts.
And here it is with my clothes:
Now it is exactly what I need! Lots of room for my dresses and shoes, of course. Well, there is never enough room for shoes, but you know what I mean. I just wish I had thought to pull up the carpet and put down laminate when we did it in our bedroom. I hate carpet.
I recently did a MAJOR closet clean out, which can be super overwhelming but I felt so much better about it all when I was done.
