Walk-In Closet Design On A Budget: Reveal Part 1
Create the walk-in closet of your dreams all on a DIY budget
Has this renovation felt like it has taken as long for you as it has for me?
I am convinced this project took as long as it did to build the Great Wall Of China.
We have not had a closet since May!
That is 9 months (I just did that math & now I am even more shocked)!
It has taken a toll on us for sure but now seeing it all come together has reminded me why we started this project in the first place.
If you have been following along since the beginning you know this is what the space used to look like:
The previous owners used it as an office we think…
Although, it did have a closet which we converted into our new laundry room!
I think we will really love being able to have the laundry room right in our closet & off our bathroom!
This renovation was definitely the biggest one we have ever taken on because plumbing, electrical, doors, & walls needed to be moved.
Not to mention before we even started we had to scrape the ceiling & remove all the carpet.
We also closed off the original entrance to the room & opened up a new entry way coming in from our master bathroom.
Adding a half wall for the laundry area helped to separate it from the rest of the space but still made it feel open & not like an old closet.
Creating the layout for the space was my favorite part by far.

Our next step was to add DIY built-ins out of MDF for our hanging spaces.
MDF is a super budget friendly & easy to manipulate with a table or circular saw.
We painted the built-in & walls Pure White by Sherwin Williams & the ceiling is Gray Owl.
I love how the painted ceiling makes the room look taller than it really is!
The closet rods we bought from Home Depot & cut down to size with a pipe cutter.
We also added this swanky new chandelier that feels like the cherry on top of this project!
Thee next built-in section we took on was the shoe towers.
I was so excited for these to go up!
There is something extra special about all your favorite shoes on display.
The scariest part of this closet was building the drawers…
We had never built drawers before & they can be a little intimidating, but I came up with this super simple method to make it easy & way way way less scary!
The gold hardware was simple to install & makes the closet feel extra glamorous.
We also installed tile for the first time ever, this project definitely had a lot of first for us!
The tile is gorgeous & just subtle enough, the color is Pine Wood White.
I big puffy heart love that it looks like hardwood flooring, but if there is ever a leak from the laundry room we will be safe.
Adding the glass cabinet was definitely right call!
That is the same one I shared with y’all on our Instagram stories that I found on Facebook Marketplace.
It’s amazing what a little paint will do!
I can’t wait to fill it with all the pretty things!
This renovation was definitely one for the books.
We learned so many new skills & were able to do everything on our own which feels extra good!
Can we just look at the before one more time pretty please?!
It’s hard to believe this is the same space!
That’s a wrap for part one of the walk-in closet reveal y’all!
Stay tuned for part two where I actually fill it with all the things & share my favorite closet organization ideas!
