I've wanted to do something with our closet since we moved in to our house 4.5 years ago. The one hanging bar and shelf were just not enough in that small closet (and this is the biggest closet in our house!). After reseraching DIY options and some pre-made organizers, I decided to go with this CloseMaid organizer from Home Depot. The organizer was $53 and an additional hanging bar was $10 (it comes with three hanging bars). For that price, I decided to give it a try.
So we went to Home Depot on Saturday morning and bought it. I took everything out of the closet and this is what we were left with:
Kevin took down the metal hanging bar and then ripped out the wood self. When he was done, I did some major cleaning and got to work painting the trim inside the closet. I probably should have painted the walls too, because they were pretty faded, but I had already done two coats of primer and two coats of paint on the trim, and I was over painting for the weekend.
Then I got to work putting everything back. I still have some sorting and organizing to do, but it gives us so much more hanging space! I love it. Our clothes aren't packed so tight and we each have our own side. Definitely worth the $63 it cost to get this done in one weekend.
I love it! It feels so much more organized and it's not stuffed with clothes. Such a great way to make a big difference in a small closet.
