The Closet Makeover

diy

This has been a long time coming but I am finally pulling the trigger on this. We’re renting our apartment so I can’t go overboard….but it’s finally going to happen. This whole makeover probably won’t cost me a fortune either because I’ll be going to Ikea and buying some things from amazon.

Now, my mom was an interior designer so a lot of my design eye I learned from her. And I like to be a little more meticulous about how I’m going to organize things! Nobody likes buying furniture only to find out that it won’t fit in the space!

So first things first. I take some measurements and write them down. Graph paper will be ideal for drawing out your space but I didn’t have any around the house so I just used printer paper. You already have your measurements so putting them to scale won’t be difficult because you can just use 10” as your scale.

Now that we have drawn out our space look up different furniture that you would feel can work in your space! I had originally thought that putting this Ikea bookcase standing was going to be the way to go, but the truth of the matter was that I just had too many items to hang and not a lot was going to be folded in the shelves.

This ended up working much better not only for the space I had but as it turns out all of my foldables are in the same color palette so it looked like I designed it purposely. I used to have a dresser inside the space but the drawers were simply too packed was breaking down and it just didn’t work in the space. The drawers were always hitting the sliding door.

I haven’t bought the LED lights for the closet yet but I am definitely going to pull the trigger on them because I can never see what I have in my closet! And like it elevates the space!

After taking everything out to put the new furniture inside the closet I started noticing so many things that I’ve only ever worn once or twice that I am never going to wear ever again! So I decided that I’m going to go ahead sell them….at reasonable prices of course. Most of the items are medium range designers like Parker, McQ, Clover Canyon etc. I most likely won’t mark anything over $50 but stay tuned for the shop page on my site pretty soon!
