If you follow me on instagram (@OfficialKTR) you may have seen bits and pieces of my closet here, here, here and here, which I consider the “good side.” The other side however was usually a hot mess. :/
Even though Carrie Bradshaw was a fictional character, she made a good point when she said, “I like my money right where I can see it…hanging in my closet.” For me, it’s really a good feeling to be able to see everything in your closet at one glance because I feel really organized and thus can be a lot more productive when my space is clean and tidy.
A typical closet in an apartment or condo (and some homes) is usually a small 2 ft (deep) x 5 ft (wide) and usually comes with those annoying sliding doors. Not only do they usually get jammed, makes lots of noise and blocks half of my closet where what I can’t see tends to get messy or forgotten.
I debated over how I can give my closet a quick makeover without costing me a fortune and taking too much of my time to put together… My quick solution was a few cube organizers, matching hangers, black fabric drawers to replace those plastics drawers and of course removing those annoying doors so I can see everything! If you live in an apt, be sure to check with your landlord first :).
Everything was under $150, took me under 30 minutes to assembled, and I’m super happy with the results!
Below are a few photos of the rest of my space which I use as a closet and a work station. Stay tune next time for tips on how I (with the help of my husband :) DIY this space with a spare room!
