Closet Envy...

A few posts ago I shared a few pictures of some fabulous closets. Well that got me really thinking that there had to be a solution for my sad little 1950's closet. As I lay in bed one night I got the bright idea to measure the depth of the closet and then from the door opening to the side wall. Out came the measuring tape, there indeed was enough space from the door opening to the side wall to run the clothes bar. It would actually give me more hanging space! So when you open the closet instead of seeing a single bar of clothes, I hung the bars on either side of the door opening creating a walk in closet! One side has short hanging and the other side is long hanging. I am going for the dressing room feel, but because we do have plans to sell our home in the future I don't want to be to over the top.

So to finish off the closet with a bit of chic boutique feel I have purchased some paintable wall paper with a subtle print, that will line the back wall of the closet. I am then going to paint the wall paper a nice subtle hue that will coordinate with the master bedroom. Simply moving the bars over have made such an improvement. Not so claustrophobic! So pictures will be coming soon. I still have wallpapering and painting to finish in there. One of those thing you can't really do with the kiddos hanging around. Great little helpers, but I will have to go this one alone!
