Closet Makeover: Part One

Closet 1:

Remember this? My TV Stand/Dresser Switch Up….
Phase one: purple dresser in closet, TV stand in living area
Phase two: purple dresser as TV stand, TV stand as dresser

Obligatory before/after. Still can't believe I thought this was a good plan late on a Thursday night.
Phase one: top left and bottom right; Phase two: top right, bottom left

And now, to really throw you for a loop…

Phase 3! 
TV Stand is in second closet (more to come in Monday’s Pt 2 closet post)
Black and white storage that was once in closet #2 is now in #1 and I purchased one more piece of hanging storage to complete the switch.

This was the previous solution for my clothes… not ideal but I love the dresser as tv stand idea so much that I refused to switch it back.

Done!
Pajamas, sweats, leggings, t-shirts all crammed and very few items were accessible.

After!

Room for everything. And much more accessible than the last attempt at making the TV stand work.

Leggings and pajamas go in this unit.

Space for sweats, leggings, workout clothes in unit #2

Also space for my ridiculous collection of Nike shorts, and college t-shirts in unit #2.

I may or may not have been standing on top of the toilet to get this photo 🙂

Storage for travel toiletries, extra toilet paper, shampoo, hair products, etc. I like to have a couple extra everyday items in storage so when I realize I’m out I don’t have to run to the drugstore at the last minute.

Leftover adhesive cork from my mail project in the kitchen so I stacked three boards here for some cute postcards and mementos.

More great usage for my second Ikea raskog cart! Everyday essentials on the top, vitamins, medicine, bandaids, etc on the bottom two shelves.

More office supplies, storage and wireless printer kept on this bookshelf in the closet so I can keep my tiny desk nice and tidy.

That’s all for Closet #1! Look out for new post on Monday for the rest of the makeover with Closet #2!
