Things I’m Loving Lately

AnyList allows you to create all kinds of lists that you can easily share with family members!

I am a bad blogger, obviously. Things have been pretty quiet/dead silent on here since I finished up my master closet. After big projects I really just need some time to build up more motivation (and money) for the next one. Also, tomorrow is my son’s last day of his first year of school and so the past couple of weeks have been busy with special trips/events I needed to attend for him. Annnnnd tomorrow […]

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 […]
