walk in master closet makeover Part 3 - Her Side Reveal

Here comes the best part of our closet makeover, her side :)

We decided to build the closet mainly because I wanted a cabinet with glass doors where I can hang all my sarees (Indian Ethnic dress). So depth of the saree cabinet is more than that of shelves on the either side.

I learnt from my mistake of not painting before building the built-in (from my sons closet makeover) and painted the wall with custom color Gray after ripping off the builder provided shelf and the baseboard.

without further ado, here comes my side of closet in its full glory :)

view from the door.

 and bottom shelves

And few photoes during the process, Sorry for the blurry iphone pictures.

Doors waiting to be attached to the cabinet

we built the doors ourselves and used plexiglass (acrylic sheets) instead of the glass inserts. we tried cutting plexiglass ourselves using the plexiglass cutter (and failed miserably). After few failed attempts and many broken pieces, we just dropped the idea of cutting them at home and got it cut at the shop.

All my sarees are out of the suitcases now. I love, love how I can see all of them, Just like the way I grew up seeing mom's sarees all hanged neatly.

I normally try to use same set of hangers in the given hanging space. Using same type of hangers thru-out, kind of makes the wardrobe look organized. I also hang the tops/shirts sorted by color. It also makes picking up a shirt much easier in the busy mornings.

You can read all about the plan, layout and his side reveal.

Thank you for swinging by and have a great week ahead!!
