Can you believe it… I’m actually sharing an AFTER on a space in our new house!! But there’s a reason why. This DIY’er didn’t do it herself. Honestly, with everything else we are working on around our house… that we are doing OURSELVES… it was SO refreshing to have a space transform before our eyes.This closet was almost completely NON functional before. It was so bad, you guys. The wire shelves that were in there weren’t actually secure- they would actually tip off the supports they were zap strapped to when you hung things. They would also snag clothes like crazy because they had sharp ends. And nails sticking out of the walls to hold them on. So even though we had a regular ol’ non-walk-in-closet in our last house… this closet was LESS useful to us. There was heaps of things on the floor from falling off the shelves when we hung things up and we just gave up. But we couldn’t even close the door on it… because there was no door! Ha! Honestly, you guys… it was such a stress for us.
I’m so excited to be able to partner with Imagine The Room Kamloops to make over this closet. It’s now our total dream closet and not only holds everything that was in there before more beautifully, but we were able to empty our dresser as well so we can give that to Aubrey for her room makeover. Pretty rad, right? I chalk it up to great design. When we were chatting about closet designs, I got some amazing tips from Imagine the Room that I asked if I could share with all of you. These tips were SO helpful for me to understand what really makes a closet work hard and if you’re planning one for yourself- I know they’re going to help you too! I have put ALL of those amazing tips as well as a time lapse of the closet install (I love watching people do what they’re great at, don’t you?) into a YouTube video below, but before we do that… want to see the ‘before’? Shield your eyes, friends.
