Home Makeover: Closet

So Bob and I bought our first home last November. I can’t believe it’s almost been a year! Yikes! We moved in after a whirlwind destination wedding for my sister-in-law in Florida (which was freaking amazing!) and have been working on the house ever since! It’s a wonderful house and what’s so great about it are the HUGE closets! Our first apartment had one tiny coat closet, a pantry/linnen closet, and a closet for Bob and I to share. Needless to say we kept lots of things at our parents homes for quite a while. Ha ha! That’s cool. We were married and out of our parents houses and that’s all that mattered. So when we went house hunting, nothing looked better than these new homes with giant closets.

I hadn’t really done anything with my closet though. It was huge, but I didn’t feel like I was using the space very well. So I asked Bob to help me and his sister (the one who got married in Florida) to help me organize it. It turned out so great and I’m happy to show you the results!

Before

Ahem, pardon the mess.

Isn’t it huge and amazing? It’s such a great closet! I’m lucky to have it, that’s for sure!

We took everything out and painted. These are my painting slippers I got when we bought the house. I wear them while I paint.

After

Now when I walk in, the first thing I see is this clean dresser and all my extras that make me feel pretty. I framed a few photos, printed off some of Garance Dore’s wonderful illustrations, hung one of my grandmother’s hankerchiefs, and turned an old cork board into a framed cork board where I can hang my necklaces! Like it?

Also, I have to ask…So many people have told me I don’t have very many clothes. Is that true or false? I always feel like I have nothing to wear, so that would explain some things…
