I decided a little over a week ago to clean and organize our master bedroom closets. In our current house, my husband and I have our very own closets (first time ever!), and they were in need of some sprucing up. My closet was a mess. To see the transformation check out the part one of this article here at Organizing His and Hers Master Bedroom Closets – Part One “Hers”.
My husband’s closest was much more organized than mine was (less stuff) but it was very boring and still needed a little organizing love to make it better. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a “before” picture. Just picture it all white with things piled up on the dresser and you’ll have an accurate mental picture.
The first thing I did was remove EVERYTHING from the closet. I painted the walls a beautiful color called Gulf Winds. It’s from Behr. I then cleaned the floors, shelves, and all of the molding. Now it was time to get organized.
*My husband loves hats almost as much as I love purses. I hung Ook Hooks above the door to hold his four favorite hats. The others I stacked on a shelf.
*I organized his clothes by putting all of his business clothes (which he wears to work 5 days a week) on the top bar, and all of this regular, every day clothes on the bottom. This makes it easy to see exactly what he has (or needs) to wear to work each week.
*The dresser was pretty beat up. I used Mod Podge and put beautiful old looking maps on the top of the dresser to cover it up. To see exactly what I did, go to my post on how to decoupage a desk or dresser
*I painted the side of his shelves with chalkboard paint. Now he’ll be able to write himself notes and erase them when he doesn’t need them anymore (no more little strips of paper that end up getting lost).
And, just for fun, I painted a toucan on the left wall. Now his closet is clean, organized, and interesting!
Love the added art. My hubby is using two walls of his closet to display old photos that he loves (and that I’d prefer not to hang on a wall … i.e. we’ve got better ones of the same people). So nice to have room for dresser in the closet, b/c tops of dressers are magnetic where junk is concerned. Going to steal your hat idea!
I might have to steal your picture idea! I never thought of hanging pictures in my closet. I have plenty of room in mine…I think I’m going to do it. Thanks for the idea!
I love the idea of decorating the inside of the closet. What a great idea!
Thank you! I actually WANT to walk in there and hang up clothes now 🙂
