It’s master closet reveal day! I showed y’all the fully installed but empty closet over two months ago, then I had a baby, the holidays came, things got crazy, and the final reveal has been a long time coming.
First and foremost, I am so in love with it. I’m not usually one to gush over things, but I’m also not used to awesome organized spaces. It’s always a goal of mine, but it never really fully happens. Not only is the closet really pretty to look at, but it’s also extremely functional. Everything has a place, and even normally messy me can keep it looking picture perfect 100% of the time. You know something is organized well when it stays clean on it’s own and you don’t ever have to think about where things are, you just get what you need and leave. That is not normally how our family works. For example, our pantry. Right now it is pretty much just a hole in the wall with a few temporary shelves and no door (or door frame even). My toddler thinks it’s his toy box and is constantly spreading pantry items all over the house…I frequently find potatoes in the laundry hamper and canned goods in the shoe bins. In fact, the other day I actually caught myself yelling “Boys! I need potatoes for dinner! I’ll give y’all each a marshmallow for every potato you find in the next five minutes!”

Okay, enough bragging about my housekeeping and mothering skills… let’s get to the tour. As a reminder, here is the blueprint for the master bathroom and closet.
And here is what it looked like when I designed it on EasyClosets.com…
here is it after installation…
And here is what it looks like these days!
The main part of the closet is this center section with shelves for shoes and jewelry, drawers, and even a hidden hamper. Adam and I aren’t going to have any dressers or clothing storage in the bedroom, so everything we own is in this closet (and we even have empty shelves and rods, which is always a good thing).
The shoes are all displayed on the shelves and easy to find, and the drawers have plenty of room as well.
The drawers also have really smooth soft close drawer slides, which keep them from slamming (I included a video at the end of the post so you can see them in action).
Most of my jewelry is out in the open and easy to see, actually organized, and not tangled.
Directly below that is a drawer full of more jewelry, all organized into a velvet lined tray (also from EasyClosets).
Below that is a built-in laundry hamper, another feature I really love. You can remove the basket to take it to the laundry room…or you can just reach in there, grab everything, and stuff it directly into the washer like I do.
To the left is my side of the closet, full of clothes that I am SO HAPPY to finally be wearing again. Nine months (well, actually more like 7 years) of wearing the same old maternity clothes (that were hand me downs or used when I bought them) has gotten a bit old.
But now, instead of digging through an old bin of maternity clothes I get to walk into this closet and feel like I’m shopping a little boutique. Everything has a place, and I can see it all, and it stays clean.
I even bought all new velvet hangers, because somehow the cheap plastic ones just didn’t feel right in the new closet.
Then on the other side is all of Adams things.
He has a rod for T-shirts, one for his button up shirts, and one for polos and pants. Then there is even an empty rod which I’m sure we will fill up eventually, but for now it just holds extra hangers.
To the right of that you will see a bunch of baskets on shelves…this is basically our bathroom closet. We didn’t put a closet into our master bathroom because there just wasn’t space for it in the plans, so I added these instead. I coupon and buy things in bulk when they are a great price, and since personal hygiene stuff is usually the easiest to find deals on (plus they don’t really expire) I always have extras lying around. So I grabbed some baskets that I already had, labeled them with tape and a sharpie, and now have plenty of storage. Between these shelves and storage in the (future) bathroom vanity I don’t think we will miss having a closet in the bathroom.
And that’s the tour! I also made a video version of the tour, so if you want more details (or just want to see me 41 weeks pregnant) then here you go!
