Guess what? I officially have a closet. And it’s not just a closet. It’s beautiful, organized and has clothing hanging inside it. Can you imagine?
Oh, and clothing hanging on new, pretty, matching hangers. And i can see everything!
Did I mention this closet’s a beauty?
Sorry, I can’t get enough of this new organized space in the house. I also can’t get over the fact I started here…
Then lived out of wardrobe boxes for 5-6 weeks…
And now? Now. NOW!….
Now I have more room than I know what to do with. So much room those drawers are practically empty.
The closet system itself was a big splurge. A splurge but, you will agree, a necessity. Although I wanted to call this closet budget a wrap, I did break down and upgrade a couple items in this space. One being the hangers.
I had been using those old white plastic hangers. I know, ladies….*cringe*. Honestly, I was ok using them again, but with this new pretty closet, I thought it was time for an upgrade. A 10% off container store coupon helped make that decision too! I went with the non-slip, slim-line, huggable hangers…
If you aren’t sure these make a big difference, have a look…
Shorts, skirts and long sleeve tops…
In the middle I created an organized jewelry area…
As you can see, I’m also not a big jewelry gal. I love to dress up from time to time, however, so I do have a little something. The other new splurge in this space was the standing acrylic jewelry organizer. I found it on sale in the clearance section. It has one broken necklace hook, otherwise it’s in perfect condition. You can’t even tell it has a broken hook because it’s clear. I thought it would work well for my small collection and it looks great in this space…
Under the jewelry shelf, I folded tank tops, heavy sweaters and vests…
Down at the bottom, I raised the shelves to make room for boots…
On the final wall…
There’s a lot of extra room here. Not to say my wardrobe will expand that much (I keep it simple over here), but it’s nice to know the space exists. Maybe I’ll fill in the remaining shelves with extra bedding. Or use it as a means to organize something I don’t want the kids getting ahold of. We’ll see….
Otherwise, in this section there’s long sweaters and scarves…
And my collection of sweatsuits…a.k.a. mommy uniform’s…
I love an organized closet!
So nice that you have extra space in case you do expand your wardrobe. Also I love going through my clothing and donating what hasn't been worn- it's such a nice feeling to know that you can get rid of some of that excess clutter!
Oh what a DREAM!! Seriously, all of the storage space to keep everything organized is amazing. I actually have a big walk in closet although it's not this big and doesn't have all of the functionality of the drawers and shelves. However, I know I can utilize the space better if I'd be more ruthless and clean out a lot of stuff I don't use, and I've been wanting these hangers. You're making me think the investment in all new hangers is worth it! and the huggable hanger award is so funny. Have a great weekend!
Simply beautiful! xo, Genah
Looks amazing. And, the huggable hangers are the absolute best!!
Such an amazing space! My dream closet! If you get a chance, please link up to the Suburbsmama Sunday Linky Party: http://suburbsmama.blogspot.com/2013/09/sunday-linky-26.html
So easy on the eyes! You've done a great job. I love how you alternated your shoes toe and heel so they fit better in the shelves. Brilliant!
that was my big splurge when we bought our house too. I have two closets but I did all the shelving and it was the best project we did. I love yours!! so pretty with the hangers – yes they make a huge difference!
also just read your pool post. it's gorgeous – loving seeing all the transformations in your new home.
I began using huggable hangers about 8 years ago and will NEVER go back to anything else! They are the best! Love your closet!!
Your new master closet is to die for!!!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!
What a huge space! (And, so bizarre how the previous owners used it…a single clothing bar, really?!?!)
Great job on the re-do. What a great space!
This looks really great. I didn't see any mention of the closet organization system you used. Did you get them installed for you, and what company did you go with? Thanks!
Your closet is amazing! We just moved and I am looking for ideas for my master closet, this is so helpful! And I think I will splurge on the hangers, what a difference! I love following your blog! Have a wonderful day!
Thank you so much for the sweet comment! I’m so glad this post was helpful to you!
Love it! Currently designing mine now. Could you share the closet system brand you used?
Hi Sam, beautiful design that seems like a reasonable price point. Who did you use to build this closet system? Would you please share the cost? Many thanks, Carrie
