Bedroom Closet Reveal

small organized apartment closet

Today is not your average boring old Monday (that no one loves), my friends, today is REVEAL day! Yes, that is right, my bedroom closet is finally finished! I haven't been excited to change up my closet for a very long time and just well never gotten the inspiration to do so. I stand by my previous comment about how my closet scares me. However now that I got some drive and inspiration, things started to progress. As soon as I was finish, I was dying to share it with you all.

It took some time... strange because I have such a small closet, but somehow it took a lot of time for me to get it finish. You can see my plans for my closet here and also check out my progress here.


It took some hard work, a lot (a lot... a lot) of changes and me having to rethink my ideas in order for everything to work out. I didn't stress about it, I made it work and in result it turned out beyond what I imagined.


Originally, I wanted two little storage baskets or bins to put on the top shelf but realized that with my bags and luggage there, it wouldn't fit. Also the storage bins/baskets I wanted to buy at Ikea was no longer in stock (I check online and it said it was in stock... someone got there before I did) Things happen for a reason though and turns out this FJALLA Box with lid for $9.99 was better suited to hide and store my swimwear, swimsuit wraps and beach towels.


Bye, bye jeans pile (you have a new home) and hello bright and beautiful storage box.


I love how organized and spacious my top shelf feels. It is no longer cluttered but yet accomplishes its goal of having everything in their place. I am even more in love with my new storage for my flip flops compared to the one that I made. I wasn't intending on having a new storage for it but when I bought this 5 piece GODMORGON box set from Ikea for 12.99 (it's for bathroom storage lol) and only bought it for the large box, I was left with extra storage containers. One look at the rectangle container and I knew it was perfect for my flip flops.


I wanted to do something for my belts, I knew I wanted it to be a clear container so I could see the belts. After some deep online shopping research, I finally found the GODMORGAN set that I believe would work nicely and the price wasn't frightening. I didn't need all the extra things but knowing me I will find use for it later such as the flip-flop holder that I mentioned. Oh, I almost forgot mention my very inspirational printable I wrote and designed. If you want your own copy be sure to print one out tomorrow on my blog. I made sure to place it in a nice silver frame.



I bought the BRIMNES four drawer dresser from IKEA on sale and then decided to give the handles a little touch of silver to carry on my with the style of the closet. I will share more about the project later on. On my plan, I wanted shelves on both sides on the dresser however it didn't work out that way so I decided to have the shelves above each other. I used the other space for taller boots and also hide shoes that I don't wear or use often (or use at all lol).


I am so incredibly proud of myself and my closet. I no longer have to hide it behind the door like I used too. I may even just take off the door so I can show it off all the time!
