DIY Custom Master Closet: Part 5, The Cost

Building a DIY custom closet system in my walk-in master closet!

Alright, I spent an afternoon rummaging through all of my receipts from this project and added everything up. It was very scary, and honestly, the total I spent was a bit more than I expected. Below is the total cost I spent on this project. I linked each item to the actual place I purchased it, though a couple prices listed online are different than the price I paid. My Custom Closet Costs 12 Sheets […]

DIY Custom Master Closet: Part 4, The Reveal

Building a DIY custom closet system in my walk-in master closet!

Alright, the master closet built-ins are complete! That is not to say that this room is complete, though, as you will notice the floor is still the plywood subfloor (although now painted a quick coat of white to maybe make me less crazy in the meantime). However, I believe we do have a tile choice picked out. I just have to work up the courage (and money) to tackle that big project soon! As a […]

DIY Custom Master Closet: Part 3, The Details

Building a DIY custom closet system in my walk-in master closet!

Okay, the last post left off with all of my cabinet frames basically constructed. Now it is time to get into all the little finishing details. First up, I had to deal with the raw edges of my plywood. There are a few ways to do this, including edge banding or a thick trim that overlaps the plywood, but I decided to go with a trim that was the same width as my plywood because it […]

DIY Custom Master Closet: Part 2, The Build

Building a DIY custom closet system in my walk-in master closet!

Hey! I’m here. Life has been a bit crazy and I’ve been busy plugging away on my master closet. BUT I’m getting close to the end so I wanted to hop on here and try to start explaining my process. After I ripped out all of the carpet in here, I had to also take down all the existing shelves and rods. (You’ll notice in my photos though that I actually did this part as I […]

DIY Custom Master Closet: Part 1, The Plan

My plans for a DIY custom closet in my master bedroom!

Our master closet is huge. Like, way too big. The pictures don’t do it justice as I don’t have a very wide lens on my camera, but it’s the size of a small bedroom. There is SO much space but the standard builder shelves and rods just didn’t make a lot of sense in here. We don’t have THAT many hanging items that we need 4 walls of rods. What we needed more of was […]

A Quick Kitchen Update

My new Target Threshold Industrial Swivel Barstools!

This isn’t a DIY post (unless you count the 3 hours it took me to unbox and put these damn things together) but I wanted to share the new stools I just bought for our kitchen island. The stools we had previously were a gift from my grandparents three Christmases ago after we first moved into our house in Arizona. I loved them. They went with all of my furniture and the dark kitchen cabinets in that […]
