Walk-in Closet Makeover

8 Materials

I recently renovated completely my walk in closet using only wooden shipping crates. (like I did on my bedroom floor (check my projects list)) It was a great use of recycled materials and I was able to create my very own custom (gorgeous) walk in closet. I love how it came out, take a look at how I did it!

First I used the wood from the crates to line the floor, hardwood flooring!

I nailed and hammered the wood to the floor.

It looks great! Once The entire floor of the closet was covered with wood, it was ready to be stained.

I stained the floor with a beautiful deep stain.

    I see all the closet organizations and it seems they save room by folding t shirts. I wonder how convenient that is. If you want a shirt in middle of pile do you mess the pile up when u grab a shirt? (I am always in a rush).

      Just insert a flat hand on top of the shirt you want, lift, take out your shirt with your other hand, and lower and retrieve your hand. Then you won't mess up the pile.

    I would love something like this but my closets are trailer closets that go all the way across one end of the room. And have 2 big sliding doors. I hate them! Any suggestions anyone?

      Have you considered folding doors? The bi-fold doors at home Depot are relatively inexpensive.
