How I Revamped My Daughter's Closet With Whimsical Appeal

My daughter has a HUGE closet but it was a hot mess! Clothes were everywhere and it was very unorganized. I wanted to make it functional and beautiful. Why not? I know its a closet but it can still look fabulous.

Here is the before, like I said MESS!

There were a lot of shelves on the side but their only use seemed to be random crap collection.

I started by emptying everything out and putting peel and stick wallpaper on the walls. I decided to go with flamingos!

I absolutely love peel and stick wallpaper, I have tried several different brands and was not disappointed by any. Use a squeegee to lay it flat and and exacto knife to cut around any edges.

Some people might think it's silly to wallpaper a closet but I absolutely love it! now if the doors are open you see another stunning space not a bunch of clutter.

Then I got this 8 cube shelf and 4 fabric drawers, I actually have 2 already! I find them to be the best way to hide clutter while looking adorable.

I used the top cubes for the bins where you can put clothes, toys, underwear/socks. I mean anything really that you don't want laying around. I also added the top rack shelf where I keep seasonal clothes in bins. Other then the book shelf, the rest of the shelves and bar were from the original closet.

I end up adding just two shelves on the side that lay on top of the book shelf. Since the bookshelf was short then the length of the closet this just lets me add more items that are tucked in the corners of the closet.

Can I say I love it, because I LOVE IT!

    WOW, love the flamingo wallpaper. A huge difference from what your daughter had before. I am guessing that the bins are being used for clothing, such as pants, sweaters, sweatshirts, etc., since the closet is not at crowded with clothes as it was before you started. Looks fabulous.
