Yay, it’s here! The big reveal for my Closet Makeover! I can not tell you how excited I am that I did this whole project but that I had you here to keep me motivated and on target. It is so easy to let projects slide, especially ones that are for ourselves. We tell ourselves that nobody is going to see it so why bother but it is important to take care of ourselves and have our homes and closets be our refuge.
SO here is where we started:
- organized but not very pretty
- lots of piles of shoes #homelessshoes
- piles of sweaters, jeans, s horts, you get the picture
- no easy access to bags
- extra piece of furniture
- dark corners with lots of dust!
And this is where it all got better. First we started by clearing out the stuff I no longer wore, needed, loved, etc. That included this dress from the early ‘90’s.
I pulled down the old, yucky shelves and patched holes. Yuck. Painted the walls and ceiling a lovely light lavender and changed out the light fixture.
Then came the new shelves and drawers. Hallelujah!
Putting it all back was actually a snap because I’d already measured and knew where everything was going.
Inserted a rug and a small chair and it’s all done!
Have you been following the other One Room Challenge participants? Major eye candy here! You can find me reading these the rest of the week. It is so inspiring to see what others have accomplished, especially the DIY projects. I’m inspired to try more makeovers in other rooms of my house!
In case you were wondering where everything came from here are the sources:
Chair & rug: Overstock.com
Light: Home Depot
Shelves & drawers: ELFA from The Container Store
