2015 Projects ~ Small Closet Makeover On A Budget
Hello my pretty friends. Oh yes, winter storm Juno is on its way...Bitter cold and deep snow descend on the East Coast as I write this post. I worked from home today and if the The National Weather Service is correct in their prediction, we will be snowed in by early morning. So I plan to stay put and enjoy the warmth and coziness of my home for the next few days.
Today, I am sharing the makeover of my closet in our master bedroom. It is a small space so I really wanted to maximize every little inch in this closet. I knew that I was going to have to build up in order to find the extra space that needed to get all the clothes, shoes, handbags, scarves and makeup neatly organized in the closet. And my goal was to do this on a minimal budget.
The first thing we did was remove everything from the closet, paint and add wall paper on the main wall to create some visual interest and to give the closet a little glam. Next I purchased the Alex drawer unit from Ikea for extra storage which was my largest purchase at $119.00. Then my husband had the great idea of adding inexpensive closet cubes on top of the Alex Unit. Less than $15.00 at Walmart by the way... He just turned the cubes vertically for height and also as a simple way to display a few pieces and to make my closet a little fancy..... I do love some eye candy when I am getting dress in the mornings.
I already had the huggable hangers so it was easy to go through all of my clothing and sort everything by color, Shoe racks were added to the bottom of the closet as well as the top of the closet.
Pretty hooks were also added to hand handbags and large storage boxes were added to store hats, gloves and scarves.
Some pieces are far too beautiful to be hidden away.
Good news is, that I have completed the first item on my to my To-Do list for 2015. Now it is on to my sun room. It is all about making everything functional this year along with getting into some healthier eating habits.
Thanks for visiting. It is always wonderful to hear from you..
