My house was built in 1920. By a man. The closets in each room are tiny. I’m not really a clotheshorse, but closet space is at a premium in my house, so I decided to turn the extra bedroom into a closet/dressing room. It helped that the previous tenants had already put the bars and shelves up, so I had something to work with.
I’ve painted the walls, painted the trim, painted the shoe racks, caulked everything, made curtains, made an earring holder, fixed the built-in closet in the room, reupholstered the ottoman, installed a chandelier, and assembled some of my favorite things to sit on the dresser. Walking into that room makes me smile– and at 7AM, I need little things to make me smile.
