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).


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
