My new project...

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!

Terri I love it! I am glad you are not putting doors on! We'll see if you can keep from filling it, ha!

Hi Terri

I love the look and particularly the Louis Vuitton suitcase. I think you can keep in minimal.

Terri......I am loving this look! That closet unit is beautiful for that space....very nautical ....captain's quarters feel with it, the lantern, and your wall color. Any guest would enjoy a stay!

What if you were to move the furniture forward so the front of the side panels were flush to the closet opening? (or within the door frame) You could then fill the gaps between the furniture and the closet opening by adding moulding. I would also suggest making a "tabletop" for the top of the furniture. The same size of the closet so things don't fall behind it.
