I confess... I have a deep burning love for CLOSETS! Well, storage in general, but especially closets. I thought it would be fun to take a trip down closet memory lane. I could kick myself though, I don't have very good closet pictures at some of my houses so we'll have to make do with what we have. I'm also not including my "current" closet because I have some changes in plan for it (minor ones) but it's still not photo ready!
First up, my college apartment closet:
Unfortunately, this was move in day and I never took another picture of my closet the other 3.5 years I lived there! I do remember thinking that was the smallest closet EVER and got pretty creative with storing TONS and TONS of stuff in it through the years. Plus, I can recall at least two times that the stupid wire shelf pulled loose and everything was in a heap in the floor. Enter mom (remember her alter ego Shelf Expert) and we re-did the shelving and it never came down again!
After college, I moved into my first house in Cleveland, TN. I may or may not have bought the house for the closet. It was ah-ma-zing. Again, I didn't do it justice with my pictures!
I loved that it had the little room (where I had a spot for ALL my jewelry) and then it went right into this awesome space with hanging on both sides! I bought the shoe cubes that have been with me now at 3 houses and still really like them for my shoe storage. They can be used like this or stacked (below). Love love love this closet. My first house had a lot of awesome storage in general.
Next up on the closet tour, Baton Rouge. I wasn't so sure about these closets in the master bathroom at first but I ended up really liking this set-up. There was one larger closet that had a lot of shelving and hanging space and then another smaller one with shelves and double hanging. I'm not a big "folder" so I didn't think I would be able to utilize the shelves (at first) but have no fear, I filled those babies up in no time.
|And the after! Pretty self explanatory. But, this is only my warmer weather clothes. Didn't need many winter clothes in the B. Rouge!|
|This was the other closet off the master bath. I ended up storing all my books on these shelves and it worked out great.|
|These hanging rods housed all my cooler weather clothes. Loved having a closet just for my winter clothes that wasn't completely accessible!|
