My Lovely New Closet

I made a decision to get help in simplifying certain areas of my life. My closet was one of those areas. Seriously people, it was a mess. So I asked, maybe begged {ok there may have been some weeping involved} my hubby if we could include the cost of closet organization in our construction budget. If you aren't a regular visitor, we had a flood and are in the process of putting the house back together. Because he loves me so much, or maybe because he doesn't know what to do when I cry, he agreed. And now my closet is one of my happy places!
Here is what it looked like before...

My scarves are so well cared for right? And my shoes so nicely displayed and easy to find? UGH!


The lovely Sarah from Chic Closets made over my closet for me and I love her for it. If you are in the So. Cal. area you have to call her. She can do a wonderful job on almost any budget. She cleaned everything out, including putting together a rack of items she suggested we donate or throw away, and organized it from top to bottom.
Drum roll please... here is my new closet!

Matching hangers! WHAT?!

My hubby can actually find his ties now. You're welcome hubby.

And my favorite part...my shoes. They look so lovely.


You can see many more before and after pictures on Sarah's blog.

Wow! Looks FANTASTIC! I'm a bit jealous. ^^ Here in Korea they don't really do "real" (built-in) closets, so I have a sad wardrobe. =)

YAY! We both got great closets at the same time:) Wanna have a closet party? We can sit on comfy pillows, eat snacks and giggle til we're sick...all while sitting on your closet floor, staring at its beauty:) Yes, Im a dork. But I still love to just walk in and LOOK around at my newly organized space. Its so calming.
Love you!

love it. love it. love it.

when i was little and my mom would make me clean out my closet, after I was done i'd sit on the floor in it and read. it was always the happiest day ever. :)

If i were you, I'd sit on the floor of that closet for HOURS. :)

Love the matchy hangers (one of my next life goals haha) and even spacing. Gorgeous.
