She had two walk-in bathroom closets that needed some major work done, and I was more than happy to get my hands on these closets! I'm pretty sure all my OCD friends are about to freak out looking at these before pictures, but here we go! I've labeled the pictures "Closet One" and "Closet Two" so y'all can keep track!
Crazy, right?! I couldn't wait to dive into this mess!! Here is a picture of the floor of the closets:
She also has this amazing bathtub that she couldn't get to, so of course I had to clean that up as well!
The first step to cleaning out these closets, was to take absolutely everything out of the closets. The key to organization is to start with a clean slate. Now, mind you, this project took me a day and a half to do. It takes awhile, but is SO worth it in the end! Once the clothes and shoes, and everything else you can find, are cleared out, start going through it all by creating piles. I did four piles : Keep, Donate, Throw Away, and Maybe. I usually do only three, but since there were so many clothes, it was hard to decide right at the moment if my client wanted the item or not. Here is her donate pile after we went through all the clothes! I wish I was sitting next to it to really show the magnitude of how many clothes she was getting rid of. That's a large armoire the clothes are next to if that helps at all. (photographer mistake lol)
One thing that I cannot stand are wire hangers!! Unfortunately, my client had a ton of them from dry cleaning her clothes, I got rid of as many as I could before we put everything else back. Having uniform hangers, or as close to uniform, is a cheap and easy way to make your closet look organized.
I like to surprise my clients with the end result, so I made her leave while I put everything away and organized it. Since she ended up getting rid of an entire closet full of clothes, I had a lot of extra room to work with. I decided to use "Closet Two" as her current season clothes...which happens to be winter right now. Then the other closet, "Closet One," was for her formal dresses, summer clothes, and all of her accessories. It originally was just going to be accessories (purses, shoes, scarves, etc) but the summer clothes fit perfectly! To dress up Closet Two, I lined up all of her formal shoes to give a boutique feel.
Don't you want to just light some candles and jump into this tub with some wine and bubbles?!
To really get the effect of this closet makeover, let's do some side-by-side before and after's!
What do y'all think?? I'm obsessed, I think they turned out great. The best part? It didn't cost any money! You can all do this with your closets!
