Our Closet Story

When we bought our house a little over two years ago, our master bedroom closet wasn't what it is now. I have shown you a snippet a few months ago when showing the master bedroom and mentioned I needed to do a post for our closet separately.

Well that day has finally came. 

When we purchased our house, there was a big gaping hole where a closet would be. There wasn't any shelving, rods, doors, nada. Just open space.

I imagine the closet looked like this once upon a time:

This picture is from a house a few doors down that is the EXACT same floor plan. So our closet had a door but I'm glad the previous owners made the decision to remove those hideous doors in our house.

Anywho, when moving in I had a clean slate to design a closet that would work for me. Most people jump to Pinterest for inspiration and most of the time, I am one of those people. But not this time, I went for function. I needed shelving for my shoes because let's be honest, I have too many. The other thing I needed in our closet was wood rods. I cannot stand the wire shelving stuff for closets. I also have way too many clothes that those things rip out the wall. (No joke, we had to remodel the coat closet and secondary bedroom closet because of this).

So I gave measurements to my father in law and a visual explanation of what I wanted to do. The next weekend, they show up with a floor to ceiling shoe shelf my grandfather in law built and installed my new shelving unit. Than they went to Home Depot to buy two wood rods and installed those. And that was that. I had a custom made closet.

The next step was to install doors. Pinterest helped with inspiration. I wanted bifold doors like these:

I also thought of a sliding barn door but decided to eventually install sliding doors withOUT mirrors like these:

All in all, we will not be installing doors. I plan to leave our closet open and let new owners decide what they want to do. I don't have an actual step by step tutorial for our custom closet as my in-laws did most of the work. Maybe one day, I can actual watch them and give a tutorial but no promises!

Have you had to remodel your closet? How did you find inspiration?
