I shared a whole bunch of pretty Master Bedroom closets in my last post. They made me ponder all. the. options. for our own.
I love how ours has a door (novel idea, I know!), and it’s spacious enough to walk in.
Emptying out the whole thing and removing the shelving was a job in itself. I found there’s nothing more motivating to purging old clothes than painting a closet!
In my dream world, I wanted to deck this closet out with fun wallpaper and custom shelving units…
Perhaps someday that dream will come true. But for now, I wanted to freshen up this space and make it function practically for us.
So, out came the leftover Silver Strand paint…
Ahh…so much better!
Then, I put back the existing shelves and bars, and added in some of our own furniture…
Although that bar under the mirror looks a bit strange, it’s the perfect way to hang long necklaces, belts and ties.
I got it years ago from the Ikea as is section for $1.50, and was never quite sure what it was supposed to be for… So, I improvised.;)
My favorite part is the shelving unit in the corner on my side.
It’s an old bookcase of my mom’s that I painted last year with chalk paint. It works perfectly to hold stacks of shirts and scarves, and the top is the perfect perch for my jewellry.
Our shoes (not a very glamorous collection, I admit) fit under the clothes on my husband’s side.
It feels fresh and clean, and functions really well for us.
Maybe someday we’ll bling it out with wallpaper and a chandelier…
