I started my blog loving with my obsession of checking in on I Heart Organizing every day. Jen is the writer of the blog and she is absolutely amazing at what she does. She inspired me over the summer to redo my walk in closet. Unfortunately, I was a newbie at the whole redo process of taking pictures of the before and after. I wish I had the before photos. We moved the shoe rack and clothes bar from the left side of the closet to the right side. Joe also built me a built in unit from Lowes, which we got on clearance for 75 dollars and it was originally 225. I painted the walls and the ceiling. My favorite addition was the jewerly display that was created from fashionable doorknobs from Hobby Lobby. I’m actually wearing my jewerly everyday now because it’s right there for me.
Here’s a close up of the middle knob with an M for Melrose.
This is the view from the entrance of the closet. The built in has a clothes bar for my skirts, two cubby holes for my purses and three pull out drawers for jeans and workout clothes.
The shoes are in a 15 hole cubby from Lowes. The shoe cubby fit perfectly under the clothes bar.
The shoe display was built by my husband. There are three pieces of laminate on a slant screwed in to two five foot pieces of laminate on each side. The right side is screwed into the wall so that it can’t go anywhere (you’ll see why this matters in the next photo). Above the shoe display are baskets, which are hiding spring pants and summer shorts. I gained a new found love for baskets after visiting my sister-in-law, The Wanna-be Southern belle over the summer. I use them everywhere now.
Finally, the shoe display was built so that our laundry basket would fit underneath perfectly and here’s the reason why the display needed to be screwed into the wall. I spy a munchkin helping mommy.
