We have been living with our new master closet for a few months now but I had a few things to finish up before I was ready to post pictures. This space was originally an unfinished room off of our current master bedroom.
When we expanded the previous bathroom to build our master bathroom, we lost the only closet in our bedroom. So, we had the contractors build out this unfinished space to create a complete master suite.
And, here is the closet now:
I finished the fabric covered bulletin boards earlier this week. I put one over each chest. They are still a little empty looking. I think it will take some time for them to fill in naturally. The chests were thrift store finds. I painted Paul's chest but decided to leave mine in the original mahogany finish.
I got the large oval mirror at the Raleigh Flea Market in North Carolina.
One of my favorite parts of the new closet are these valet bars. I put one on each side of the closet and they are great for hanging clothes that need to be ironed or packed for a trip.
And these Slimline hangers are great. After using them for a few months I am definitely a fan.
I even made Reagan a new cover for his dog bed to help him get used to his new sleeping space.
Look at all of these empty shelves...I think someone needs to go shoe shopping!
I also designed a little storage spot for the ironing board so everything we need is in one place.
Paul and I have never lived in a house with a true master closet so we are loving having all of this extra space. We often joke that we may like our new closet even more than our new bathroom!
It is amazing what a difference great storage makes - even putting away the laundry doesn't seem like such a chore now.
