Welcome our Master Closet! Is it beautiful and fabulous? Here is the view when you walk in the room. *Swoon* Yes, this is my side of the closet! You can see we did an upper and lower rod system for shirts and pants, as well as an upper rod for dresses next to my amazing shoe shelves.
View looking into the room from the hallway and a close-up of the shoe shelves.
We were able to use a large 5’x3′ mirror from Matt’s parents bathroom remodel. We mounted it on the wall, but I am still planning on doing some molding around the frame to make it look more “finished”.
The chandelier was an awesome thrift store find this past weekend. It was $26 and while I couldn’t confirm that it worked (not tested and no refunds), I took a gamble, and it worked perfectly! I love it in the space and we are really glad we went with an island as that allows the chandelier to hang lower since we don’t need to walk under it. It is a great anchor for the room!
Shoes! I plan to use the 2 regular size shoe shelves above my boot shelving for seasonal shoes that I will likely wear more often (aka: now you can see it is all closed-toe shoes). In the summer/spring I can switch them out for the most frequent shoes worn in those seasons.
*p.s. don’t you just LOVE how the wood turned out? It is the perfect color and pattern to give a rustic look, while still looking polished. I knew this room could potentially sway very female so I wanted to be sure I used materials to make it gender neutral so Matt could love it as much as I do (well, OK that’s not possible, but didn’t want him to feel like he was in a girly room either!)
Here you can see the whole shoe shelving system. I love love love the boot shelves! I keep my boots standing with rolled up magazines in them and I actually enjoy putting them away and seeing them “on display” in our closet.
You can see where we decided to put my vanity, in the “closet of the closet”, or my “nook” as I like to call it. This is definitely still a work-in-progress but I have a “nook” project in mind that I’m excited to post about soon! Matt was able to put an outlet in my nook for my hair appliances as well as a switch for my own light for good makeup lighting. I also opted to keep the nook white vs. painting it the charcoal gray to keep it nice and bright for my makeup/hair area.
You can see Matt’s side below He made out pretty well with an upper and lower hanging rod, his own dresser, and half of the island. (OK, maybe I “lease out” a little bit of his space :). Oh and more shoe-love below.
Well, summary of moving: I have a lot of shoes! The top of the rod system was the perfect place to store all my “off-season” or “special occasion” shoes. Plus, I love looking at them. I think they double as utility & accessories!
It is crazy to think how far this room has come in the first month we’ve been in our new house! It was definitely a huge undertaking but we are so happy with all of our stuff finally organized and in it’s place!
I am one lucky girl and am exciting to keep posting and keep you updated as we continue to put the finishing touches on our master closet! This totally makes sense for our current lifestyle and it is a room that we use every single day.
