We finally have it done! After 16 years we have customized our small master closet. If you think you can’t make a small closet functional and pretty, you are so very wrong. Come on and see our small master closet makeover reveal.
This post is sponsored by Wayfair, they provided all the products used in our master closet makeover, however, all opinions are entirely my own. I only recommend products and services that I believe in.
I can’t bring myself to ruin all the wonderfulness of this post with pictures of the before, so if you want to see how bad this closet truly was you can check it out in my inspiration post.
Let me refresh your memory on the to do list for this project and the original concept board.
Purge our shoes and clothes Remove old shelving Patch drywall if needed Paint or wallpaper (I am still on the fence about this) Install new closet organizing system Put back our much reduced wardrobes
We got it all done and in just one day. We had a couple of holes that needed to be patched, but they were going to be covered up with wallpaper so we just put drywall tape over them and called it done. I KNOW! That isn’t the proper way to do it, but nothing had to be anchored in the area where they were so we made it easy on ourselves. Shhhh, don’t tell
I know I had a neutral wallpaper in my inspiration post for this makeover, but I just couldn’t bring myself to get it. I waffled back and forth over painting or wallpapering until I finally decided on wallpaper. Boy did I ever! I love this modern geometric pattern and the colors are perfect for the look I am going for in our master bedroom. Take a risk and go bold in a small space…trust me.
It is a peel and stick wallpaper, which was perfect for this project. It was so easy to put up and can be done by just one person (that would be me). There was hardly any waste and I had just enough with the 2 rolls I purchased.
*TIP: When using the needed amount calculator on WayFair, take into consideration the repeating pattern and if need be, order an extra roll. I didn’t run out this time, but I have in the past because I didn’t consider the pattern I was working with.
For the organizing system we decided to with the Deluxe 48″ W – 96″W Closet System by Easy Track. It comes in three different finishes and we chose the grey. I LOVE it!
I have to say that the instructions were not that easy to figure out, even for my hubby and he is a master at building all the things. All I can say is, Easy Track, you need to add better written instructions to those pictures.
After some thoughtful studying of the instructions and the closet (I know, a man that reads the directions, SWOON) it ended up being pretty simple to install.
Okay, enough of the talking. You are here to see how it turned out…without further ado…
The Master Closet Reveal
Our closet is just a reach in and is 83″ wide. Now we have four hanging bars that are each 29″. Giving us 116″ of hanging space, gaining 33″. That is huge for this small master closet! And that isn’t even including the shelving section that is 24″ wide.
As you can see, I wanted my shirts on the top and my hubby wanted his pants on the top. Sometimes you have compromise with your partner on design, I talk all about doing that in this post. The racks are adjustable and can be set wherever you need them to be to accommodate the length of your clothes
We chose to have the shelving section in the middle, but you could have it on either end instead if you wanted to.
Yes, those are honest to goodness shoe shelves built right into the shelving unit with the bars to keep your shoes from sliding off. They are an extra that you can purchase to customize your closet organizer.
I have always wanted a closet full of wooden hangers. They look so uniform and neat. I am also hoping the pant hangers, with their clips, will eliminate the crease that pants get from hanging over the hanger.
A Few More Master Closet Reveal Photos
The Storit Woven Felt Baskets are soft to the touch and hold an amazing amount of stuff. I put my scarves in one and all of my hubby’s hats in the other one.
I want to take this opportunity to thank Wayfair for sponsoring this small master closet makeover, we couldn’t have done it without them.
That’s all for now!
