When my boyfriend and I moved into a rental house back in September, he promptly took over both closets on the main floor. Really, he just put his clothes somewhere to get them out of the way. We were tripping over boxes, each other and the dog we had so much stuff everywhere. But as time passed, his clothes stayed in the closets.
And I got tired of living out of a suitcase. So, I turned the upstairs room into this…
Really it’s a mishmash of furniture that couldn’t fit elsewhere in the house. But look how great it turned out. Girl dream room.
The clothes racks are my favorite part of the room. They make the it look like a store, and I get to go shopping every morning!
They’re also my favs because I was determined to find cute clothes racks—for cheap!—and I did. I found one of the clothes racks at a fancy-schmancy estate sale. It was holding (way) overpriced clothes and wasn’t marked as “for sale.” I asked anyway and offered $10. Sold! The other I found by placing a wanted ad on Craigslist. Scored that one for $15. Not bad considering that at a low point after many failed garage sale attempts, I checked Ebay for listings of clothes racks. Unless I wanted a cheap plastic one that would disintegrate after hanging up three shirts, I didn’t see any for less than $50 (or more!)
I’m so happy with how it turned out. What do you think of my “closet”? Let me know in the comments!
