This past weekend was one of the best in my life because my California Closet was installed! My super awesome husband got me this present for Christmas this year and I couldn’t be happier. I always dream about being organized, but I have to be honest and say, I am a person that isn’t easily organized. Part of my problem is that I work from home. We do have an office in our house, but it is honestly not the best set up. That being said, I constantly feel stressed about having stuff everywhere. I am so happy that all of my clothes, shoes and purses are neatly organized, so that I can quickly get ready to start my day. The thing about built in closets, however, is that they are not cheap. We discussed this closet renovation together and enlisted the help of a California Closets representative and we just love how it turned out.
Even Dan kept saying how excited he was as I moved back into my closet space. It just truly looks amazing. It is even better than I imagined it would be. Every thing fits perfectly and with room to even move some things around. The other thing that is great about the built in closet–is that I can adjust it seasonally. Right now, I have all my boots out and available for wear. I removed one of the shelves so that I could fit my knee high boots for this time of year. When summer rolls around I can store my boots and easily add the shelf back in for more space. I also am obsessed with the bins on tracks. It is a great place for me to store ballet flats, which I pretty much live in for work. I initially thought that the smaller bins would be super small and thought I could fit about two pairs of flip flops. However, now that its installed, I’ve realized they are actually pretty big and I am able to fit my sneakers as well!
It seems so silly to me how excited we are about a closet. I think it also represents us moving forward with our first house and making it our own. Our first year in our house we were trying to save for our wedding, so it is nice to finally see some of our money being used to make our life better and to create things that we are proud of. I thought getting a new washer and dryer was life changing, but let me tell you this closet is even better!!! I was talking to my mother-in-law about our new space and I was telling her how we just feel like it is such a great investment, kind of like a good mattress, you truly use it everyday, so why not spend a little more and make it your own and more efficient.
If you are thinking about upgrading your closet and have questions for me, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be happy to help. I hope you all had a nice weekend, enjoyed watching the Super Bowl (if that’s your kind of thing), and of course…got to relax a little.
Thanks for reading and have a fun day 🙂
Here are a few pictures for the day of my new space…
Sorry the lighting is a little wonky!
