Closet Makeover

My closet was a disaster. If you promise not to judge me, you can see a “before” photo here.

Pretty awful, right? And yes, that is all my stuff. When we moved in to our original house, David kindly used the closet in the other bedroom (which is now Chloe’s nursery) and let me have this one all to myself. It wasn’t always this messy, but it got worse during the pregnancy weight gain transition. I’m still 20lbs heavy, so it will be some time before I can give up my pregnancy/nursing clothes for good.

Thankfully, moving into our new bedroom forced me to take stock of all that was in there. I purged, gave away, and re-organized. In our new bedroom closets (separate his and hers in the same room!), David and I both chose to use a ClosetMaid T3 custom shelf and rod system from Home Depot (plus one drawer for me), and we were finally able to make the switch.

Here is what it looks like now:

Amazing, right? I had to show it in two photos, because now there are sliding doors and not two swing doors that open at the same time like the old closet. Can you believe the new closet is actually smaller? The new organization makes it much more usable. Now everything has a space (and you can’t see it, but at the very top is a shelf that hold all my purses and shoulder bags, as well as a box of “skinny” clothes that I may or may not wear again. Also, those pink boxes are Ikea Drona boxes ($5) which happen to fit perfectly if set in sideways, much cheaper than adding drawers ($36).

Now the question is what color to paint the doors?

A Little Celebrity Hair Anyone?

hairstyles

This is silly, but David decided to take a photo of me and try Instyle’s Hollywood Hair Virtual Makeover. I wasn’t too into it at first, but some of the outcomes weren’t half bad. My real hair is pretty short and very dark brown. David got a real kick out of seeing it “smoldering orange” (see Sienna Miller’s, version 5). I don’t think so, honey, although I agree to start letting it grow out.

Here is the list of celebrity hair shown above (left to right, top to bottom):

1. Eva Mendes           2. Jennifer Lopez
3. Mandy Moore        4. Scarlett Johansson
5. Sienna Miller         6. Jessica Biel

I’d love to know if anyone has a preference! 🙂

P.S. Here is the link for iVillage’s Makeover-o-matic mentioned by Ana in the first comment. Pretty nifty!
