Sparked a major purge and much needed new organization.
Once I emptied my son's/my second closet, I decided that I really wanted his room/our guest room closet to really function for him when he visits and our guests.
So suffice it to say, it is going to be really cool but it won't hold nearly what it was capable of holding before... which I'm embracing.
I really do want the person staying in this room to be able to put their things away and feel truly comfortable.
So, while this room is getting a closet makeover the rest of my house is a bit of a disaster with my clothes in piles everywhere ... but I'm working on it!
I thought I'd give you a quick sneak peek at how it is going to look.
I initially considered just putting in the one cabinet with all the drawers and adding double rods to each side, but after seeing that 2 of the units fit inside the opening perfectly I decided to embrace the idea of a small fitted closet.
Just a test fit.
I am having some track lighting installed to light up the cabinetry and wash light down the front.
I initially thought I'd hang some fabric panels as I got rid of the last pair of by-pass doors that were original to our house.
After seeing how much the fitted campaign style cabinetry adds to the room, I think I want it to stay open.
What do you think so far?
Am I crazy to keep a closet relatively empty for guests? My son doesn't believe that I can do it, but I really really want to!
I am a passionate treasure huntress addicted to "the thrill of the hunt." I pride myself on finding unique items and have spent a lifetime collecting unusual and interesting "treasures" which I have used in decorating our home. I shop with an eye for design and look for pieces that I like to call the "jewelry" of the room. Those pieces that have been around accumulating energy thereby bringing life into a space by telling its story or evoking a memory. The allure is found in the details of its journey... condition, provenance and patina. Our collected "treasures" tell the story of who we are. Billy Baldwin said it best, "Decorating is never successful unless it is personal." My treasures are available for purchase in my Etsy Shop and on my companion blog, Shop La Dolfina. The links can be accessed from my sidebar.
"All of life is about energy. It's about the energy that you're putting out; energy that you're drawing to yourself, every day, based on the way you think about your life & the actions that you take. Everybody is an energy field. And because of your attitude, your thinking, your actions; who you choose to be in the world, forms your own field. You are drawing into your field people who are like you... to remind you, to show you, to reflect back to you- who you are. Believe that or not, that is what is happening all the time... and it does not require your belief. It just is. It. Just. Is." -Oprah
