We recently moved into a new house and seriously upgraded in the closet department. We went from three tiny bedroom closets to four large ones. Since our house was built in the 1950’s, our closets are old and in need of a little TLC. So I was pretty pumped when one unexpected benefit of the Project 333 Challenge arose: the opportunity for a closet makeover!! My hubby and I agreed that if I had to remove everything from my closet for the closet purge anyways, we might as well do a little revamp at the same time.
My closet was the only one in the house to have triple sliding doors. I had honestly never seen these before. And I could not stand them. Only one door could be opened at a time, so you could never see your full wardrobe at once. Not good for someone trying to maximize their wardrobe and find new ways of pairing items together!
So we decided to just take the doors off. And boy was it freeing! The space immediately felt bigger and more open.
The whole closet needed a fresh coat of paint. We went with white walls and trim, and gray built-ins and shelving. We also replaced the old metal clothing rods with wooden ones we painted gray. Such a difference!
Once I got my clothes back in the closet, I was pleasantly surprised to find that my new capsule wardrobe left me with extra space. I have NEVER had extra closet space before! We considered putting a vanity in the open side of the closet, but ultimately decided it would be the perfect spot for a full length mirror and jewelry station.
I love that my new capsule wardrobe allowed me to better utilize the space in my closet, and create a more full-service space that can house everything I need each morning. I could not be happier with my new closet!
Have you done any closet makeovers recently? I would love to see them!
