I enjoy simple things: solitude, cheap sheet cake, and sunlight. I also believe that white is, in fact, a color. Bring me fresh flowers and we can be friends.

The Closet Factory

My new closet is finally installed!  It looks totally transformed and I am in OCD heaven.  I need to get down to the nitty gritty of it, but for working with what I have - I am pretty pleased so far. 

Here's the before:





  I don't even feel like attempting to describe the situation before. 
Total chaos (and apparently a lot of laundry to do).

After:





The new layout uses the height of the walls more effectively.  You can't see it in these pictures, but there is space above the entire units so that I can store my luggage and other large items.  I also plan to throw some baskets up there with some things that I do not use that often.  One of the best things: I can see all of my shoes!  It's like going shopping in my own closet every morning when I get dressed. 

Left to do:
1. Fix the hardwood floor (there's a chunk missing from where we removed the old shelving)
2. Get a full length mirror for the back wall
3. Add a chandelier
4. Hit up The Container Store for organizational tools that are beyond my imagination
5. Get matching baskets for the top shelves and underneath on the floor


This means I get to cross off another item off my summer To-Do List
