Hate: It is the smallest closet I've ever had, by far.
Love: It is the biggest closet of every house we looked at in our neighborhood, by far.
There is a small hallway between our master bedroom and bath, and it is off of that hall.
When we painted our bedroom, I painted the small hall the same color, Martha Stewart's "Flagstone" from Home Depot. I also love my number sign for holding scarves and purses :)
The actual closet on the other hand... Ahhh!!
The walls are totally beaten up with scuff marks all over the trim. It is UGLY! And the one bare lightbulb hanging from the ceiling is a little erie. But don't worry, I have plans to make it super cute :)
My idea is that the closet walls need some color... and a pattern!!
That being said, I've been collecting pictures of super cute wallpapered closets on Pinterest (where else!) Here are my fav's:
I especially love the color and pattern of this pantry though, and this is what I'm going to try to replicate in my closet.. Only instead of wallpaper, I'm going to stencil and paint! (After how much wallpaper I've REMOVED in this house over the past six months, I just don't have the heart to add any of it!)
And I think maybe I'll make the stencil a LITTLE bit bigger! I also want to add a new light fixture for the ceiling, baskets for the top shelves for storing my accessories such as swimsuits, hats, and gloves, and get new premium hardwood hangers...
But ah, just thinking of it makes me excited! :)
PS- Evan has TWO small closets on the other side of mine. Of course he only takes up one, so the other one we use as a linen closet :)
PPS - All of my jackets and coats are in the front hall downstairs or the mudroom.
PPSS - All of my dresses are in my office closet.
PPPSS - I have shoes EVERYWHERE!!! Ah, I love shoes :)
PPPSSS - If we live in this house another 10-years, we are contemplating the idea of blowing out the small hall, my closet, and Evan's closets, and making one HUGE amazing walk-in closet!
