Last week, we worked hard on our master closet and made it a space we really love. Check out some pictures from the master bedroom closet organizing project. It’s still super-organized and we can’t wait to organize more spaces in our home. In fact, there are several projects that we’ll be working on over the course of the year. I’ll be sharing more about that tomorrow as well as information on how YOU can help me.
In the meantime, I wanted to share the mood board I created to pull the whole closet look together. A mood board is a great way to organize all your ideas on paper. It’s a visual representation of the space you’re working on. This allows you to pick items that go well together. Sometimes the visual is in my head and I pull it all together on the fly. However, the best way to do a project is to come up with the general look before you get started. Stay open to changes too! Here is the final mood board for our master closet. 90% or more of these items (or similar ones) were used in our project. I’ve linked to all sources below the image.

To create a functional and organized closet you will need the proper storage items. My closet had built-ins but I still needed several storage bins to truly make the space organized. There are hangers for almost every item of clothing – leggings, suits, and scarfs. I bought what I thought I’d need and used it accordingly. I got rid of all my plastic hangers and upgraded to velvet ones. So far, my clothes aren’t slipping off and I love the sound of the metal at the top. I’d highly recommend using velvet hangers for your clothing! I’ll keep you updated on how they hold up over time.
Depending on the space you have and the items your closet houses, will affect what storage bins you’ll need. I used the round fabric bins for bed linens – pillowcases, sheets, even duvets.
The baskets have a chevron fabric on them as well as copper details on the handles. They blend in nicely with the copper stool too! By keeping the storage bins a neutral color they work for both him and her. The lidded baskets contain underclothes, socks, and items that would normally be in a dresser drawer.
Don’t forget Step#3 of creating a closet you love. Put some love in it. Purchase items that you really like and add them to the space. Just because you’re the only person using the space does not mean that you should decorate mediocre.
Create a space YOU LOVE. This is always important!
And of course, we were able to build a sliding barn door. The tutorial post for that project should be live at the end of the week. I’ll be sure to notify you when it’s up if you’re interested in that project. That project really makes the closet super-special. I love that door!
So there’s the look with some detail shots of the space. Even closets can be a nice part of your home. Take the time to make them spaces you’ll love forever. Catch the full closet makeover here!
