It’s finally time to reveal my master closet makeover and I couldn’t be more excited!!
I loved being a guest participant with the One Room Challenge! Not only is it fun to be apart of something with a ton of very talented creatives, but I personally need the deadline. I’m one of those who need the weekly accountability to keep moving forward. Otherwise, I’ll take my sweet time which is crazy and frustrating. (Ask my husband.) Not with this master closet makeover, no way, because IT IS DONE!!
Let me first start out by saying, taking pictures of closets is very, very challenging. I wish I could invite all of you over so we could sit crisscross applesauce on my closet floor and just take it all in. Apparently my family wasn’t a fan of inviting all of my internet friends over, something about it being weird, whatever just know the thought DID cross my mind. Also know, the acrobatics involved and my ability to fit in the tiny crevices of my closet is quite impressive.
Without further ado…
My master closet makeover REVEAL!!!
Go ahead and take a minute, I’ll give you some time to take it in.
I know you’re probably wondering “where are all of her clothes?” and if you remember from the first week I told you that I created a capsule wardrobe.
What that did was create more space because the only clothing I own are the pieces that I’m absolutely in love with. The second I start not liking the way I look in certain things, it gets donated. Nothing I have is “just in case” or “one day”. Since I’ve taken so much time going through my clothes, it has eliminated my aimless shopping. I’ve become more mindful and intentional with the clothing that is in my closet.
My new master closet works perfectly for me and it still has the potential to grow if I need more space. I have just enough hanging space and the drawers hold all of the rest of my clothing essentials. My master closet has definitely become a dressing room and definitely has the feel of a boutique.
Just because it’s a master closet, doesn’t mean it can’t have personality.
The built in drawers is my take own IKEA Rast hack. By modifying the IKEA Rast plans, I was able to create a ton more shoe storage space. Adding the counter on top was the perfect space to hold my perfume and jewelry.
The gallery wall that lived in my master closet got its own little update to tie into the gold accents.
I also updated the storage containers for some seasonal items and keepsakes pulling the pink color from the rug.
The only thing that didn’t get a facelift, was the shelves my grandfather built, but it works nicely now to hold my hats and other accessories.
The total cost of the renovation was just over $500.00. Thanks to a garage sale that I had right before the master closet makeover started, the actual out of pocket amount that I spent was $262.00.
Surprisingly the most expensive part was the peel and stick wallpaper. Each element ties everything together perfectly, even the light fixture from Lowe’s Home Improvement.
This has definitely been a whirlwind, but it was totally worth it to finally have my master closet makeover complete! There’s definitely something to be said about seeing your DIY vision come to life.
