We're Finally Out of The Closet!!

Shelby's closet has been made over!  I do not have any before photos and even if I did, I don't think I would have the guts to post them.  It was horrible.  Our house was built in the 1970s and her closet showed it!  It was a couple of long bars with a piece of plywood on the top for a bit of storage.  It was not practical, and impossible for her to reach her clothes!

Darling hubby went to the local home improvement store and got one of those quick kits, only AFTER he let Shelby pick out the color she wanted her closet.  She chose this green color with a pink color for the trim.  Eventually we her entire room will be this color and she's very excited about it.  Shelby got to design her closet, how she wanted the bars, shelves, etc.  She loved that idea.  The shelf was in her closet prior but it held the baskets with her socks, and undergarments.  This way, she has these things in the baskets on the shelves in the closet itself and this other shelf is for her purses, bags, art things, etc.  She loves it and enjoys the fact that she can get her own clothes with ease.  The things on the top bar she can reach with a step stool, so we chose to put the items that were out of season there.  When summer comes, we'll just switch it around so she can reach those clothes and put the long sleeved ones on the bottom!

It's a win-win situation for me because now she can put her own clothes away!

Here's another shot of her room, another one of those inexpensive white shelves with baskets beside her bed.  You can clearly see the need for paint in this shot!

Thanks, Bec. We all love it. It's helped her to keep her room organized. I don't have to nag her about it anymore. It was a win-win for all of us. Now to conquer Tyler's mess! :/
