My Closet and Bedroom Makeover
My closet was workable 30 years ago. Unfortunately what worked back then has not worked for the last couple of years. I joined a "support" group online for a thirty day challenge. I made my plans during the month of July and then the actual work was done the month of August.
I had stuff piled everywhere, which did not make for a comfortable room. The closet had stuff in it that didn't belong (non-clothing items) and I could rarely even walk into it.a
too much stuff! First you start removing what doesn't belong
When we first did our bedroom, we built two small walk in closets reusing materials we already had to save money. It was actually a narrower end of the room which had many issues.
Now you can see the nicer things in our room.
I had containers of clothing and so much stuff in front of the bedroom window I couldn't open the curtain.
If you don't sort the stuff you want to put away, you end up storing things you no longer need or use.
We used a Rubbermaid Configurations closet system to create different levels of hanging and shelves.
I have three tiers of hanging on the left and two on the right. I have also purchased fabric baskets to hold items for the upper shelf. I plan to add shelves to the back wall, although I debated whether to put a full length mirror there. As I have a full length mirror on my dressing table, I decided the shelves were more important.
Now I can see treasured items instead of piles of stuff.
I have a woven basket that I toss the pillows in before going to bed. The doll moves to another perch at night.
