Custom Closet {ClosetMaid}

Time for the ol’ reveal! In the previous post, I showed you how the ClosetMaid shelving and drawers were coming together. The old shelves were removed, the walls were painted, and it was time for installation.


And here she is. I picked up the coral and blue colors in her bedding so it would remain cohesive. It turned out exactly like I wanted it to. I get along very well with drawers, cubbies, and shelves. Swoon.

While it’s not the easiest space to photograph, I was able to catch some details of the space. I imagine this shoe shelf will fill up as she gets older, but for now it houses her slipper collection and boxes for all her little trinkets. 10-year olds and their trinkets. Good. Ness.

Closet details
I knew if she didn’t have containers to…well…contain, she would just start throwing stuff in there. We purged and decided where things would go together, so we would both know where they belong. As she gets older, I like her to be involved in the organization process. This way I know what works best for me and for her. Apparently, her Taylor Swift perfume front and center works best for her. :)

The upper bars are still too tall for her, so I put her little stool in a cubby to easily pull out. We had a niiice long talk about how she is not to yank on the hangers to get her clothes down. We’ll see how that works out.


I’ll be back another time to show some of the organized innards., and you should know that I didn’t just find all these coral and blue accessories (I wish!). I had to make some alterations to suit our needs. Until then, let’s just pretend that it’s always going to look like this.

Disclaimer: A HUGE thank you to ClosetMaid! They provided me with this entire unit, and it exceeded my expectations. All opinions are mine and mine alone. Would I recommend a ClosetMaid storage system? You. Bet. (And they didn’t tell me to say that either!) :)
