Jeremy and I recently moved into our master bedroom after four months of living in the guest room due to renovations (!!!!). It’s SO WEIRD living in our real bedroom. But you guys aren’t here to hear about my #feelings. So let’s move on….
So far, I’ve mainly focused on the closet space. It’s coming along nicely, and today I’m here to share a blank wall that we turned into useful accessory storage!
Step 1: Use tape to visualize the storage you want to add. I put this up, then made sure the sizes of my hats and lengths of my necklaces and purses would work. Just hold things up and adjust as needed.
Step 3: Choose and measure for hardware. Pick out what hardware you want for whatever your storage needs are. I picked different styles for hats, necklaces, and bags. Then hold up your largest hat, bag, and necklace and decide how far you want them spaced apart. Then you can figure out how many pieces of each hardware type you need.
My hardware– Kohler knobs (used for bags), Brass hooks (used for necklaces, and I painted them gold because they came in more dark than I expected), and Lucite pulls (I actually used these on their side for the hats).
My new storage is SO USEFUL! Here’s how my wall looks today….
I’m so happy with the extra storage this adds to my space. I mean, this wall would have basically been wasted and now it’s completely full. If you have a similar wall, or need more storage, consider this solution. I highly recommend it! It’s SUPER easy to find my necklaces and hats now (always a brutal task for me in the past). Projects like this are SO gratifying! xx-Elsie
