It is so good to be back!! I have really enjoyed my holiday break with my family! I hope you all enjoyed your Holidays as well!
I have set some personal goals for the new year, and one them is to do some "BIG" projects around my house. I have never really done a huge project, so this is a big deal for me...I am super excited!!
My amazing husband gave me a much needed and super appreciated Christmas present:
Can you believe it? Look at all those awesome tools! I have been using a plug in drill guys, seriously, It. was. time. Eeeek!
Along with all the tools I was given permission and a budget for redoing our master bedroom closet! (and hopefully the bedroom too... :) Double Awesome!!
Today I will share the plans I came up with and the progress I have made. Lets start with a before photo shall we...
Now, this closet is not big. It is going to be pretty tight, but more effective. So I am crossing my fingers that it will all work out. I spent a lot of time over break reading up on closets and plans, getting a ton of ideas AND wishing my closet was bigger!
I ended up choosing a plan from Ana White that I will use to build "the two towers" (as I have lovingly named them...we are Lord of The Rings fans) Here is a part of Ana's plan with my modifications penciled in:
drawer post. You can also see I was calculating out an estimated cost for wood in the top right corner, I don't have a huge budget. I am hoping to keep it around $200. I have a huge scrap pile of wood I have gathered to pull from, and I will reuse the shelving from the existing closet if necessary.
Easy Closets design tool to get a feel of how to best use my space. I totally recommend this if you are going to re-do a closet. Plus, you can see the estimated cost and see all the money you are going to save by doing it DIY style!
Sick of the plans yet? Here are a few shots of my progress, it is not much, my littlest has been sick, and my kids barely went back to school today, you know, life still goes on!
