Our first project: Master Closet and Bedroom
Between the two of us, we didn't have a WHOLE lot of clothes. But we found ourselves constantly running out of space. And the closet was just a place I did not enjoy walking into. So we decided this would be our first project - and heck, while we're at it, might as well paint the Master bedroom as well.
TIP: If you are building your own house, make sure to take a LOT of pictures during the framing and electrical stages. It will help you out emensley later on - we've referenced them for haning TV mounts, building the closet, handing pictures, etc.
Once the first shelf went up, the rest went up fairly easily. It looked so good, but it needed some finishing touches. So we went to several stores looking for baskets to place on the shelves. Who knew finding nice baskets would be so hard! We finally found something we really liked at Target...but our store only had 3, and we wanted six! So we drove to another store that said they had several of each color. But once we got there, we couldn't find them. We had 2 customer service people helping us try to find them. They ended up being in the back room. So we finally had our baskets and I'm really happy with the result. We moved the laundry hamper to the laundy room where it actually fits in the space peferctly. This gave us more room to utilize now as well.
Of course, we are still at a loss as to where to store things like our luggage, that used to be in our closet, but now doesn't fit since we don't have the floor space we used to. But we'll figure it out. The closet turned out great!
