Not the best picture, but its the beginning of built ins for our walk in closet. He had measured, designed, and stained all the wood, and I was loving it!
I went to work emptying the existing closet, it all got put into the guest room. I vowed to go through it all and not put it all back in. There was some extreme cleaning needed! The closet also got painted, from tan to a light blue.
(Yes I color code it all...its just easier for me :))
Some more staining and cutting was needed and then the install was ready to begin. This whole project took about a week, and cost under $300.
We put in a new light fixture, more modern and you can direct the lighting.
I wasted no time filling it up. I was able to fit about the same amount of "stuff" in the closet. I have a lot more hanging space and shelving for clothes. I was still able to fit our suitcases in, which was good because I had no idea where else they would go. I am still searching for the perfect bins, I purchased the white ones from IKEA, but they are so plain. I like the polka dot ones, thinking of getting a few more. I keep scarves and swimsuits in the large one.
This is jewelry holder/photo frame I had received as a gift. I think it looks perfect in the closet.
I love our new closet it makes me feel so much more organized, and I think it looks beautiful!
