Our closet was a disorganized mess! It was a contractor grade wire shelving, collect-all, dingy room that I hated walking into every day. So we emptied everything out, took down the wire shelving, patched and sanded a whole lot of holes, ripped up the carpet, painted the walls a cheery yellow, laid engineered bamboo flooring and then proceeded to hang black pipe and wood shelving to have an organized, beautiful master closet.

This is a before picture of our master closet. Please don't judge!!
Walls painted, flooring laid.
The first side of the closet, we hung black pipe shelving to hang our clothes. We have one wooden shelf on the top. You can read all about the process here:
The second side, we hung black piping and shelves to hold storage bins. You can read all about the process here:
The back wall is for my shoes. You can read all about the process here:
We also built a small PVC piping box that I painted black to hold large rolls of wrapping paper and fabric.
Here is the after with everything put back into its place. I love how it turned out..very organized, clean and pretty! You can read the reveal here:

    I have the month oh January free, if you would like to recreate that closet for me 😁❤️
    Seriously, you did an absolutely wonderful job. Where did you get your idea, did you have an idea already, or combination of closets you've seen?
