Master Closet Reveal - The Best Valentine's Gift EVER

We're finally ready to show to you the fruit of our labor! I will let the pictures do most of the talking and will go into details later on on different posts....

Our Master Closet Suite

The same angle BEFORE
Let's start with MY SIDE of the Closet shall we?

My Small Jewelry Vanity

Chose this Capiz Scalloped Chandelier from Serena & Lily
among the Lighting Options I was contemplating on HERE

Used a Brass Floral Wall Decor for my Long necklaces a friend of mine gave me
Finally, the Purse Display I've always wanted
Pull out shelves for my special bags

Pull out shelf for my clutches, wallets and scarves

The drawers on the bottom all contain my other bags too!
Will share them with you later on

A space for everything - Love the IKEA PAX system, truly!
Pull-out-shelves too for my folded sweaters
Lots of drawers is always a big PLUS! I'm in love with the these Amber Gold Bar pulls
Something pretty atop my small dresser

A place for all my dresses and travel bags 
Long mirror hides more goodness for moi... shoes!
Now on to HIS SIDE of the closet...

Neat and organized

Just like my side, a place for everything, though obviously, I added this small show shelf for some of his dress shoes

I rolled up his ties and ended up with room for so much more!
Ample storage all the way of the ceiling was also realized with this closet and I LOVE IT!
I would like to give a big 'THANK YOU' to my husband who did most of the hard work in building all this! I also need to thank my Father-in-law who helped him do this too. All the after-work effort truly paid off hon, this is truly your 'best Valentines gift' yet!

There is so much to share about our closet and ways on how you can organize yours, so I hope you come back and check out the details on a later post!Of course the main star of this project is the IKEA PAX SYSTEM itself. And though IKEA in no way sponsored this post, I am happy to give them a huge shout out as well! Our closet doesn't only look good, it's very, very functional and organized, I'm sure you will be able to get some ideas from it.

I am truly, truly inlove with this new space. It is not fully done yet (and you'll see why later on too), but already, it has made life so much easier for us (yup, no more searching endlessly for things I cannot find, for me or for him ;-)). I feel too that it also exudes a little bit more luxury in my life when I do dress up!

Well, I hope you enjoyed this closet project of ours. I placed all the LINKS of all the posts regarding the closet at the bottom, so check it out if you missed any. And like I said, expect more DETAILS in the coming days ahead! I hope you won't get 'closet overload' from me!

Smiling for 2 reasons - what's behind me and what's
in front of me!!!

How we got here...

Have a Great Week!

  19. Your closet is beautiful!!! I have had two closets of mine in different houses done using the pax system! Ikea I think really brings competition to california closets and others because it just looks *so good* for a fraction of the price. I love the hardware you chose!
