Last week I shared our new light fixture. Little did I know that buying a new light fixture would send our house into madness. Shortly after installing the new light fixture, I thought we could address the entryway a bit better and decided to move our bedroom dresser. But, in doing that, we lost storage space in our bedroom.
We went back and forth a bit and almost bought another dresser. But we decided to hold off on it. After all, we are ridiculously lucky to have a monster of a master bedroom closet. The “closet” is crazy at 15.5 feet long by 9 feet wide.
When we first moved into the house, I asked our painter if he could install another set of rails to help make up the wasted space but the quote came back at $1000. We skipped doing that and instead ended up with a jumble of our clothes, storage, and miscellaneous stuff.
It was our shame closet in that we grabbed what we wanted, tried not to take it all in, and left as quickly as possible:
On New Year’s Eve, we stopped by Ikea to check out potential dresser possibilities and then we saw this:
The funny thing is that we have passed by that display many times before and I always sighed and said, “I want that to be our closet.” Brian would nod his head in agreement and then we would move along.
This time though, this sign caught our eye:
We thought about it, slept on it, talked about it, searched Pinterest for ideas, and graphed the room out:
We decided not to do it. Then we decided to do it. And then not…and then, again, yes. It seemed so opulent and wasteful to spend so much money on a closet. But, technically it’s less of a closet and more of a room and we really were not using the space to the best potential.
We went ahead and started the project a week later:
To be continued…
