From Wire to Wood: Master Closet Makeover {Reveal}

Gone with the white wire and hello to gorgeousness wood (well faux-wood to be exact)!

Despite the slight hiccup of yesterday’s light failure, I quickly resolved the issue, installed a new light (well the mister did that actually) and I can officially say the space is DONE!  I spent a few hours photographing the space this morning and here it is…

WOW, it feels good to have all my clothes back in one place, instead of laying all over my bedroom floor like it’s been for over a month.  The new shelving is a dream.  I walk into the space and pinch myself each time because I can’t believe it’s in my home.  So if you remember back to Mid-August, in the middle of the night, all the shelving fell.  It was a disaster and since then the closet and our bedroom have been a mess.  Here’s a quick before and after (long) picture.

The space is really a nice size (about 8′ x 7′), but a wee bit awkward with the angled wall, so it was difficult to photograph the room in it’s entirety. Like last time, I put a video together so you can check out all the nooks-and-crannies!

Here are some more pictures of the new Master Closet…

Having the shelving so high (about 80″ above the floor) allows so much space for storage of baskets (for belts, scarves, flip flops), pocketbooks, bags, extra sweaters, etc.  Literally every inch of wall is used!

Drawers in a closet are dreamy!  I’ve never had drawers in any closet before and it’s a great place to stash all your under wares!

And here’s a quick video ( I promise) of the entire space!  Sit back with your popcorn and enjoy…

So there you have it.  A space fully made over.  O, and I forgot to share this tid bit with you…  I took off the closet door when we were working on the space and I’m not putting it back.  I really enjoy looking at the clothes and the cabinetry – plus it reminds me of the 15+ hours it took to install the cabinets and how hard the mister and I worked!

    Can you tell me where you bought your closetmaid stuff? I saw it at Lowes, but didn’t see any corner pieces. Also, what was the total cost of the system?
    Thanks, Angela

      The ClosetMaid system is available at Home Depot – check out the post, there are alot more details. I think Lowe’s has a different system. The total cost of the system really depends on the components that you need. It’s not one system, but you purchase different pieces to customize the space to your needs and size. -Jenna

    Hi Jenna-I love what you have done with your closet. The orange {if am not mistaken} ceiling color is amazing!A while back, I drew up my plans for my master bedroom closet. I am also planning on an orange colored ceiling but with a stenciled pattern. After seeing your closet transformation, I can’t wait to get started on mine.

    BTW- I am happy to say that I am a new follower. I love your blog! I found you while looking for furniture painting tutorials at HomeTalk. I found your tutorials clear and easy to follow so I featured 2 of them on my blog on Friday to help others who are looking for instructions for beginners. Here is the link if you are interested []
