Closet Reveal

So...When we moved in I politely asked (required) the boyfriend to use the guest closet so I could have this guy all to myself. And thank goodness I did, because I use ever single square inch of it.

I didn't style it or organize it. I wanted you to see what its really like. What I did do was hang my chandelier, put in a new rug and pick up my laundry off the floor! I even left that bottom drawer a little open... oops!

So now that you have the background... here it is:

So you see? Its nothing so crazy fancy. No island. No full, head on shots. But I love it.

Here are the details:
* I used all of these hangers and I will NEVER go back (be careful, the black looks pretty but it sheds, so I went with Ivory)
* My chandelier was a vintage find and I am obsessed
* The rug is from CSN and it was the perfect touch. Having something soft under my feet makes a world of difference in the morning
*My jewelry is stored in a jewelry box that was the very first present I ever got from my boyfriend, 8 years ago! I still love it just as much
*My little teacups belonged to my grandmother.
*The necklace branch holder thing is from Urban.

Hope you enjoyed and that I didn't build it up too much! It was definitely good motivation for me to get those finishing touches completed.

  1. I think it looks great! I love that you used your grandmother's teacups, how special. I also love the chandy! I made my husband take the guest room closet too, so I could have the big one. and if truth be known I also occupy a whole other closet in the hall:)

  25. Wow it looks amazing! I'm so impressed! I did a little spring cleaning last week and did my linen closet. Hit up The Container Store and went to town. Next up is my clothes closet and I've heard a lot about those huggable hangers. Thanks for the tip about getting ivory ones :)

  28. oh, i would love to have a closet that size! here at school, i actually have lots of closet space. my closet at home, however, is pretty small so i end up storing dresses in our laundry room..my mom gets quite frustrated because what used to be a huge wall with room for hanging dry clothes continually gets smaller and smaller!

  35. You've inspired me to complete my closet now ~ very similar layout, and I also use my grandma's tea cups (which were a wedding present from her mother) as my little jewelry organizers. And I have that same jewelry tree ~ haha, great minds think alike maybe? :)
