Closet Organization Refresh

3 Materials
3 Hours

I’ve always had a distaste for the builder grade shelves in my youngest daughters closet so we set out on a 300$ budget to try to make it more aesthetically inviting and also more functional! We love the way this new closet turned out!

The before

As you can see it’s just a poor use of space. I’m not a big fan of these wired racks I just don’t think that they were functional as they could’ve been for the space, so the first thing my husband did was to remove these from the closet and patch the holes, we then went in and did a fresh coat of my go to Benjamin Moore chantilly lace paint

Closet system

We went to our local home-improvement store and found a closet system that would work in our space they have multiple sizes to choose from this one was a kit for about $150 that included everything but the drawers I purchased those separately for $50 apiece


Overall just by following the directions this is a very easy project my husband said it went together perfectly and easily the brand we used was closet maid

Adding a special touch

This step is obviously by no means necessary but I found these adorable decals from the website modern Maxwell they gave me eight sheets of 4 (32 total) for about $35 and I thought it was the perfect addition to her closet. They give just a touch of visual interest on the crisp white walls and she thinks the rainbow is just so fun! Bonus, when she outgrows them they just peel right off!!


The final product is exactly what I wanted. For 300$ we made a beautiful, custom looking closet that is soo much more functional to our daughters space! We Hope you like this project and as always you can find us on Instagram @spoonfulofsugar_ct
