My closet is finally finished, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. All along the way, I took photos of each step so I could do a kind of “time lapse” video with the photos. Take a look! (Be kind…this is my very first YouTube video, so it’s not the best, but it’s decent.)
For those of you who can’t (or don’t want to) watch a video, here are a couple of pictures for you…
I got the baskets at Michael’s, and they were 40% off. I added some metal numbers from Home Depot. I also got the large laundry basket from Michael’s…also 40% off. The sheers are from Target, and were $19.99 per panel. I know I’m a big ‘ole drapery snob, and never use ready-mades, but sheers are the exception. These are my favorites. They’re 100% cotton, rather than that shiny polyester stuff. I found the little silver bird at JoAnn Fabrics, and just couldn’t pass it up…especially since it was 40% off. The drapery hardware, drawer pulls, and pendant light are all from Home Depot.
I’m just so pleased with how it turned out. Now I can sit here in my bed, lean against my pretty headboard, and look at my beautiful finished closet. Oh, I’m sure it’ll change a bit once I start loading things into it…shoes, t-shirts, extra bedding, etc. But for at least one more day, I’m going to just enjoy it as is.
Here’s one last before and after:
Now that’s a night and day difference, huh?
I’ve linked this post to:
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
