I had some extra drapes from when we moved so I covered up the hanging clothes (because they are jammed in there) to give everything a neat, streamlined look.
I added traverse rods to the face of the shelves so they would move easily. I love that the drapes have buttons at each pleat. Almost like a gown (or suit -- I told Read).
I filled the center shelves with pretty boxes (via Homegoods, $5.99) with scarves, belts and other things that make a closet look messy.
I recently bought two of these at a local auction for $50 each because I adore the fabric and knew I would find them a home.
With pretty stick pins, I am able to organize my jewelry. Works much better than my previous system of digging through tangled necklaces in a drawer.
I moved one of my favorite benches into the space and it fit perfectly!!
Read's side has a full length mirror (which I find him looking in A LOT)...
His side is totally covered and hides (suits, suits and more suits). Did I mention Read is a clothes horse? Also hides his balled up clothes that he attempts to fold.
Finally, I removed the florescent lighting (not good for trying on clothes) and added two of these ($99 via Lowes). My closet is complete! What do you think? I'd love to hear from you!
Bye bye birdie,
