Bathroom Closet Re-Do...

    Recently I began having big ideas for our bathroom closet. Yeah, I really do think about those kind of things. It's a really big closet for inside a bathroom. I am not complaining about the size, but the amount of shelves was unnecessary for just my husband & I. What the bathroom was lacking was a nice area for me to get ready at. I've always wanted a makeup vanity in the Master Bedroom, but a vanity just wouldn't fit ideally. That is, until now! After removing a few shelves, painting the inside of the closet, adding molding to the shelves, & a few other changes, I now have my own little room to get ready in...


My New "Vanity Closet"




Before During....




I forgot to take a before picture. Of course. I got really carried away with taking all the shelves down, but here it is with the shelves taken down & me patching the holes. This was also a great opportunity for me to do some "Spring Cleaning" & get rid of a lot of this stuff shown in the pictures.


I love that the mirror takes up almost the whole back wall of the closet.



I love that even though I removed shelves, there is still a lot storage.



I added molding to the front of the shelves to give it a more polished look. The two boxes are "His" & "Hers" for all of our bathroom products. The two plastic drawer containers are for my makeup storage.



The inside of the closet is the same soft gray as the rest of the bathroom.


I am installing battery puck lights under the bottom shelf to better illuminate the mirror. 



This is the vanity as you have seen in my past post HERE & the mirror that I re-did HERE. No all I need is to find a cute vanity chair for my vanity closet.




The storage: Two Tan Boxes, Target 9.00. & you can find the makeup storage containers at any Walmart, Target, exd....





So there is my "Vanity Closet" Re-do.  I have a few more things to add & still work on, but I wanted to show you the re-do as of now. I wish the lighting was better in my bathroom so the pictures would have been better quality... but you get the idea. What do you think of it as of now? What have you been working on this weekend? Go to Liz Marie Blog Facebook Page & link up your latest DIY projects.

  2. You've inspired me! But I'm having such a hard time finding nice coordinating storage. Shopped at home, and ran out of options. And there's nothing nice for a reasonable price in the stores at the moment. Even the right fabric to line baskets. I refuse to settle.

  6. @Lisa I found very cute storage at Target.. that is where the two tan boxes are from. I still need more for the closet. I know what you mean about there not being that many options! I hope you find some soon!

  7. @Nina Thanks Nina!! I think you could find some space in your beautiful house :) My husband had a huge part in this idea... maybe he was hinting he needed more counter space haha :)

  12. LOVE this and what a wonderful idea! When I lived in an apartment that had tiny rooms (but randomly giant closets) I put all my chest of drawers in the closet and just got ready in there. It was way helpful to use that space and save room in other places.

  13. Very cute! I am jealous of the space you have to do something like that.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'd love something like that, but don't have a good space for it. Our master bedroom is big, but awkward.

    Visiting and following from the Not So Moody Monday blog hop. I hope you'll pop over to my blog and return the favor sometime.

  17. Most houses here in the UK just don't have closets and things, or if they do there is maybe one or two small ones. All my storage has to be free standing in the room.
    Sigh! Because I really like what you have done here.

  55. Your idea to use this space for a more creative use is really smart!
    I have had several spots that I called 'wasted space' although they were made for a reason, when the reason was not to my liking then as you I changed it. The best part, 'it's for you'....
    Love the color of your vanity.
    Nice

  60. You have blown my mind! We have a nice-sized master bath, but not at all huge. There's only one sink, so it is hard for my husband & me to get ready at the same time. But, THERE IS ALSO A HUGE CLOSET!!!! I think I could do this & still have some closet-type storage left too. And I LOVE that you can close the door - no more junky looking bathroom counter! My mind is reeling with the possibilities...

  61. That's amazing! I'm so jealous. :)
