The Fixer Upper House: How To Customize a Closet Without Spending A Lot Of Money
Today, I am going to be very brave and show you photos of our walk-in closet.
It's pretty bad, isn't it?
Mind you, the space is big, with a nice L shape and lots of room to hang things. But it lacks adequate shelving, and it just didn't look pretty.
Why do I hang on to shoe boxes like they are some precious commodity? Most of those boxes are empty, too.
I knew that I had to do something about this space before the house goes on the market. But in the end, we have about $0 to invest in this house before we run the risk of outspending the neighborhood and not getting a return on our investment.
Sure, we could spend a thousand or more on a home closet system, but we probably wouldn't see one dime of that money back.
I decided to do the next best thing and ordered some closet storage components from Overstock. com.
These Laura Ashley storage components were a great price, and I wanted the space to feel all matchy and coordinated.
Here's the closet now:
Wow! That's a big improvement!
Hanging storage for shoes and sweaters!
Cubbies and bins for scarves and purses, too!
I didn't want my husband to feel left out, so I found him some nice masculine and not so floral gray bins at Target for $5 each.
And just like my pantry storage, the best part of this update is that we can take it all with us! I also think this system is going to be much easier when the packing day comes. Just pick up a bin, throw it in a box, and done.
Another job crossed of the To Do List!
