Hello and welcome to Under the California Sun! :) What better way to start my “fashion” quest than a closet makeover, right?
My overflowing closet has been an eye sore for sometime now. Getting dressed in the morning is a huge struggle. I am a big snoozer…and with whatever limited time I have to get ready, I simply do not have the energy to sort through the mess for a cute outfit. Therefore, I tend to reach for the same boring combination day after day. But all of that will end now (hopefully)! My sweet boyfriend took it upon himself to build a brand new closet for me, all from scratch!
Here is the offender before the makeover. It had two long rods running across the entire length and a couple of storage cubes on the floor…plus other junks behind them. I always told people I was not scared of burglars hiding inside my closet because there was no place to hide! (I guess I should be scared now.)
The boyfriend and I almost got into several arguments because I felt like he was going to make the closet aesthetically better, but then he would compromise on space. In the end, I think he did a wonderful job of making it look better, more functional, and maximizing storage. Can you already tell that I am a hoarder? It is one of my new year’s resolutions to get rid of clutter in my life and I am off to a start. Are you ready to see the after?
I now have separate sections for skirts, pants, shirts, and even some shelves on top for my purses and boxes.
Here is the other side. There are sections for my cocktail dresses, sweaters, jackets, jeans, and other knick knacks. I am very happy with the result; thank you boyfriend! Now…let’s think of another project for you lol.
Ladies, do you think it looks better? What does your closet look like?
