Closet Makeover

I don't let just anyone look into my messy closet. It's been this way for 2 years-shoes all over the floor. Boxes of finished scrapbooks, piles everywhere.
So this is what we did.
A fresh paint job and custom hanging racks to fit all our clothes.
Here's the after.

This is my favorite part.I love that every pair of shoes has a place-not on the floor.
These were ordered from Home Depot. It's the first time Hubby has had drawers to put his tee shirts, socks and underwear.

We bought these from Ikea to fit all the scrapbooks. Now I can pull them out when I want and don't have to wonder which box they are in. If I change my mind down the road we can use the cubbies for folded sweaters, bins, whatever.

We hung the belts and necklaces. I want to add a little art work when I find the right thing.

This is from Nile corp. I have never had a jewelry box. You get to choose the drawer insides to fit your needs. I counted all the earrings, bracelets, etc. and then get the correct inserts. Love this! 10 drawers-now I can fit my Mom's vintage jewelry in and I have actually been wearing it.

We even have cubbies for laundry baskets-white, colored and dry clean. There's even space to keep extra toilet paper above.

This was a 3 weekend job, but totally worth it. Hubby really loves it too. Thanks for bearing with me on the photos-so hard to photograph a long closet. It just goes to show you-the space was there to fit everything- it just had to be re-organized. Getting ready to decorate for fall. Hope you had a great Halloween!


  1. How wonderful to have a closet that size! Isn't it amazing how much stuff you can fit in a space when it's organized? I'm envious of your organized scrapbooks. Our photo albums are a mess!

  2. Now THAT is one organized closet! Will you please come and do mine?

  3. It's fantastic. I want one. Maybe that could be our Christmas present to ourselves. I need to show this to my hubby.

  4. I have a very similar closet....long, really long but pretty narrow....this is a great plan, love the shelves especially....thanks for the photos!

  5. That is great! I need to do something like that.

  6. Wow I love how the entire closet has transformed into a storage heaven with many different distinct spots for a specific storage purpose. I especially adore the cages which are perfect in concealing the mess of little clothing but at the same time makes it easy to retrieve.
