You know how they say a picture tells a thousand words? Read it (or see it) and weep. Disaster. That is the best and only way I know how to describe my closet before a much needed TLC. We have been focusing a lot of our efforts on the main floor in our house but when an opportunity to hijack my closet situation with Home Depot arose, I HAD to take it.



We knew we had good bones to work with in this closet but the set up was all wrong. The shelves were too tall, I couldn't find half my shoes and my impromptu storage bin was always packed to brim post laundry loads. So it was time for a big change. We worked alongside a representative rom The Home Depot to customize our closet with the Martha Stewart collection. You've got to love that Martha. We hopped on the website, punched in our specs and voila: recommended designs were populated making it easy to add a shelf, drawer or cubby. We are definitely not your DIY-type so getting to work with a system that was straight-forward and user-friendly was a dream. I think I've taunted you long enough. Here's the big reveal... 

Necklaces: LJC Designs {similar}

Perfume | Jewelry Tray | Candle 

By adding a second row and a bank of drawers, I can actually hold more items in the closet. 


Gucci Soho Bag | Chanel Vintage {similar} | LV Pouch 

I loved how the Martha Stewart configurations have so many shelving options - perfect for sweaters, shoes or accessories. 

Pumps 

We layered my favourite Spoonflower wallpaper as the perfect backdrop 

Pouf | Rug: HomeSense 

A big thank you to the Home Depot team and to my amazing hubby for helping me pull this together!

  1. It looks amazing! All those shoes! I bet if you added wooden hangers, you could elevate this even further!

  14. Amazing transformation, it looks so functional now!!! The only thing that i would do is to change the hangers to one type, preferably black velvet ones...it will look even better!!!

  15. Wooden hangers are beautiful, but I'd go w/the slim, flocked hangers. You can fit more clothes on the rack, everything lays nicely together and you're not adding a lot more weight with wood. Great makeover!

  16. The shoes! I actually agree with everyone saying the slim velvet hangers! They are the best and let you fit in so much more.

  17. This looks amazing! The wallpaper is such a fun touch. And I also love skim flocked hangers (like everyone else commenting). I just tackled our entry hall closet - apparently I have been hoarding extra boxes & bubble wrap in there for quite some time, lol...,

  20. I have gotten a closet Full of wooden hangars after I found out our local Talbots was closing! I recommend asking a store that's closing for their hangars and anything else! And p.s. It was FUN playing "eye- spy" and pointing out some of my blog Fav's in your new closet!!

  21. AMAZING! Definitely a covetable closet and love seeing some of my blog faves in there:)

  23. It looks great! I need to get on organizing mine. But I do love my hangers and love that they come on white now..they leave more room for clothes and aren't heavy/bulky like wood hangers. Affordable too! http://www.target.com/p/joy-mangano-huggable-hangers-40-pc-suit-hangers-assorted-colors/-/A-14526909?ref=tgt_adv_XSG10001&AFID=google_pla_df&LNM=14526909&CPNG=Storage+Organization&kpid=14526909&LID=27pgs&ci_src=17588969&ci_sku=14526909&kpid=14526909&gclid=Cj0KEQjwgI6pBRDak6aRovWNqLsBEiQA8zZSLg9UVRdA_DEtGzbp21SqJFw29vk9q1KQgyYn22RQokwaAmYd8P8HAQ
