I Heart My Closet (now)

I’ve wanted to redo my bedroom closet since I originally put it in. When I moved into my (very small) condominium four years ago, I installed basic wire shelving because that’s what I knew how to do. And that’s what you do in your closet, right?

Over the years, it became more and more apparent that my ‘design’ (consisting of an upper and lower shelf) was completely useless in terms of maximizing my space, and my poor closet became more and more of a disaster area. I was almost embarrassed for people to look at it, and getting dressed in the mornings took forever because I could never find what I wanted.Enter Rubbermaid Custom Closets 

Because of my job, I’m very lucky to see a lot of the product that we don’t sell in retail stores. In particular, we produce a high end wood closet system that we sell directly to contractors.

At the recent International Builders Show, we happened to have a pretty good amount of extra product, and feeling ambitious I snatched it up and brought it home.
After one very long day of tearing out my pathetic attempt at a first closet, patching the walls, and installing the wood, my dream closet was born. I sat and stared at it for literally an hour. Now, my closet is something that I’m proud of, and I LOVE to remind my little sister about how ‘cool’ my closet is compared to hers.

My favorite part of the whole thing is the drawers. I’ve been able to empty out a lot of my dresser drawers and can now probably get rid of the entire piece of furniture – freeing up a lot of space in my small room.
My dream closet is no longer just an aspiration; it’s my favorite part of the house.

Side Note – I’m taking your blog advice, Megan, and using hooks on the back of my closet door for necklaces! Thanks for the great idea!

    Thanks everyone! It’s definitely a WONDERFUL feeling to have a closet you’re proud of.
    Closets – Rubbermaid also designs a wire system called Configurations that is unbelievably easy and can maximize the space just as well as above (and the price is great!). Plus you don’t have to make any custom cuts to the wire! That was my original plan until I got my hands on this (and some help getting it up!).

    Wow, this blog is perfect and so informative! The pictures you have shown are exactly what I have in mind for my home. I’ve done some research online, and came across a website that also has some great pictures of custom closets they have designed. I have since contacted them for a Free in home estimate to organize all of my closets.

    Well done Ashleigh! It sounds like your closet is so much more useful now and helps your morning go smoother – and I can appreciate that for sure! You’ll have to let me know how the hooks work for your necklaces. Mine are still going strong – organized and neat – good luck!
