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!
