Closet Space

Above is my old closet.  Very tiny.  We spent the last two weeks redoing closets.  Leonard built a new closet in one of the bedrooms and that's his.  So I moved all of his things out of the closet they were in into the new one.  THEN I had a new closet.  I got it all cleaned out and it still didn't look very good.  So I took Leonard's advice and painted it.  Then I moved my clothes into that and it's quite lovely - at least for this little house. 

I love my new closet.  It seems like a  tiny boudoir.  I asked Leonard if he was surprised
at how few clothes I had.  He said " Oh, you have some more somewhere."  Really I don't.  I just
donate anything that doesn't feel good, I know I'll never wear, or that I'm keeping for a weight
loss.  It's a nice feeling to look into your closet and know that everything  is comfortable! 
(All except for my wedding dress - it fits all of my criteria!)
Tomorrow I'll tell you what happened to my old closet.

Congrats on getting a new closet.... Makes you feel like you have a new home, doesn't it????? We have two closets (both fairly large) in this home --one in each bedroom. One is a winter closet and one a summer one... We use one of the two closets --and the other is for storage. SO---I switch out the clothes depending upon the seasons... Right now, I still have our summer clothes in the bedroom closet we use... BUT--once it gets cold, I'll switch the summer stuff to the other closet and get the winter stuff in our closet.... We neither one have many clothes anymore --now that we don't work outside the home. We just wear short or sweats most of the time.....

Congrats, Diane..... I know you love your new closet.

I purge mine of things I've not touched in a year. Like you Diane, I am NOT a clothes horse at all. I have shirts I've literally worn for 10 years! Most of my closet is work! Love your new closet and how roomy it is. :c)

What a great feeling to have SPACE isn't it. I remeber last winter when I gained a little closet room,
It wasd glorious I can't wait to see your old closet!

Hi Diane, I love your boudoir, complete with a lovely dresser and even a mirror. I got a larger closet with my new apartment, but I'm afraid it still seems almost too small. Yours is very interesting and I am inspired to go tweak mine around a bit. See you, Mudderbear/Rosalie

It's lovely, Diane! You have made a sweet boudoir - no mansion could have a prettier dressing room. I watch some of the 'house' shows and am always surprised at how ugly some of the gigantic dressing rooms are. Yours is perfect - and so is your attitude towards clothing. I'll have to take a page from your book!
