Do you ever “go shopping” in your own closet? It’s a great way to switch up your same few outfits that tend to get worn over and over again.
If you really dig deep and pull out that “oldie but goodie” and pair it with something newer, you’ve suddenly got an entirely new outfit!
The digging part was the challenge for me. It’s not so easy to get the most out of your wardrobe if you can’t even see what’s in it, right?! I’m going to show you how to pull off a quick DIY closet upgrade. It’s a simple project that won’t take a lot of time or money to complete. In the end, it will be easier to find the items you love, your space will look better, and it will inspire you to get creative!
First, clear out your closet to really get a good idea of how much space you’re working with and how much stuff you actually have . This is a good time to donate any items you don’t use anymore and put away any seasonal clothing you won’t be needing for a while.
You can Upgrade your current closet in less than 30 minutes without drilling any holes or removing shelves, I’m using ClosetMaid’s Closet Maximizer. It’s a tool-free solution, as long as your closet is 4 ft or wider. It securely clips to an existing wire or wood hang rod and it’s so easy to attach and detach. The functional modern design with sturdy, rounded wood shelves and metal accents enhance any closet. We’re using white but it also comes in chocolate and dark cherry finishes. The adjustable hang rod can be positioned on either side to customize your space.
Dress it up
Now that it’s installed, it’s time to filler up! The third step in our closet upgrade is to get cohesive. If you keep all of your hangers the same – it will give your closet a streamlined, more cohesive look. I’m going with all white hangers to match my Closet Maximizer. A cool trick I learned is to wrap rubber bands around the ends of your hangers to keep dresses and loose shirts from slipping off!
Customize your look with fabric bins and storage bags – like these from Closetmaid. Aren’t they pretty? They are great for storing things like purses, scarves, and other odds and ends.
Everything has a home and your closet will look brand new again! Now you can easily see what you’ve got and have some fun pairing old and new items together for some fun summer looks!
