Have a small Master Closet like we do? Make the most of it by rearranging and painting. (This is my husbands closet)
First take everything out!
Build new shelves with the old shelves on the right side.
Add 2 sets of clothing bars on the left side.
Paint and stencil.
Put everything back in the now "walk in closet". I mean you can walk in it, right!!! :)

    Jill I'm having a hard time visualizing how you hung shelves and rod for dresses. Would you be able to share a photo? Many thanks!

    where do you hang your dresses?

  • Wouldn't this new layout be way less space than the old one ? My husband has more t-shirts than I do (I hoard tops, if that tells you anything) I don't see how this would work for someone with a ton of clothes?

    My closet is similar. It's only 19 inches deep, so not enough room (you need 24 inches) to hang. I've put two hanging bars on one side wall, and one long hanging bar with a few shelves above it on the other side. In the middle, I put in a dresser from Ikea, with a mirror over it. I used Elfa shelving for the sides.
