Coming Out of the Closet

Ever since we started planning the renovation, I have been dreaming about closets. Beautiful, neat, organized closets.

In fact, the closet organizers were the first thing purchased thanks to a 15% off sale at IKEA in the spring. In order to create custom closets on a budget, we purchased IKEA Pax wardrobes which will be built into the bedrooms behind doors that match the rest of the house.

Not sliding doors. Not folding doors. Sturdy, hinged, panel doors.

The master bedroom will have four boxes behind two sets of double doors. One side for me, one side for Dave. Although that may be open for re-negotiation since Dave does not own enough scrubs to fill his side on his own...

In the spare bedroom, we originally intended to have three boxes, each behind its own door.

At the last minute (halfway through framing the closet walls) we changed our minds and opted to swap out the last box for a small built-in desk. The room will still have a 5' closet but now we get to avoid the headache of trimming the closet into the sloped ceiling.

It is exciting to start seeing all of our dreaming and planning start to take shape!
