Fabulous Closet Makeover

Messy closet

Before

Two weeks before wrist surgery my BFF opened my closet door and shrieked in horror “you need to fix this!”.  She was right…my closet was a total mess and not cast friendly.  So we set out to create an organized, cast friendly closet that could be maintained with one hand.  The results…

Thanks to my friend’s creativity and vision we succeeded in making the perfect closet.  Now that I’m in an arm cast I realize that this reorganization has made my life so much easier and fabulous!  If you have time I recommend reevaluating your closet before becoming a bandaged beauty.  It will save you so much time and effort in the long run.

Get This Closet

We used the 4ft-8ft Classic White Deluxe starter closet kit from Martha Stewart at Home Depot.  Only $159 and free shipping. I also ordered two extra white shelves for additional storage.  We found baskets and wooden hangers at HomeGoods.

These baskets are perfect for easy access to yoga pants, pjs, and shorts.

I will never forget that moment of impact and the feelings of helplessness and terror. I am eternally grateful to have survived.
