DIY Walk-In-Closet Renovation




Thanks to the seemingly limitless talents of Mr. PEMS (aka....Mr. Amazing) I can finally see all of my clothes together in one closet! 

I can't tell you guys how excited and grateful I feel right now, for me this really is a dream come true! 

Hope you all are having an amazing weekend ;)

  7. Can you tell us if you moved and turn one of your rooms into a dressing room? It doesn't look like a closet. It's definitely a girl's-dream-come-true!

  8. Callandra and Mr. PEMS -- this is AMAZING! Great job on both the designing and the construction. I think an extra bedroom to turn into a closet just went on the top of my wishlist when I buy a house ;)

  10. Wow, I am about to embark on a similar project and this has given me some great ideas. Sadly Mr Z is no Mr PEMS in the home reno skills department ;-)

    I am a big fan of you weekly outfits posts as well. Thanks for sharing!

  13. By the way, I can totally see a fabulous leather shag rug and a cozy, upholstered ottoman or bench (that matches the drapery) in the middle of this room.

  17. Yay....my dream when we get an actual house is to turn an extra bedroom into one giant closet and paint the walls bright pink with black and white accents, complete with giant mirror and chandelier.....Love it Callandra! :)

  19. Holy moly! Echoing Vicky ... this is a "closet" ? This is the size of my entire apartment! Mr. PEMS did an amazing job. It's now a closet fit for a queen! And you shoe rack...oh my.

  21. I gasped aloud when I saw this. (1) He did a phenomenal job, (2) The breadth of your closet is to die for! Jealous!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ah-mah-zing! I am so incredibly jealous right now. Did Mr. PEMS also install a photo studio for blog outfit shots? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wow- Mr. PEMS is sure handy! It looks phenomenal!!!

    Love it!!! :}

  25. Wow.. looks fabulous and big (more like a walking room closet than just a regular walking closet) – so jealous :-).. I love the black drapes. Mr. PEMS surely is talented.

  27. It's gorgous!!! I'm in love with it and green w/ envy : )

  28. Amazing job!! I am seriously coveting your closet. Please keep those curtains closed to keep the sun from fading your clothes.

  29. Thank you all so much and thank you most of all to Mr. PEMS (who can't stop smiling since reading all of your admiring comments ;)

    Anon, This is actually a small front room that we turned into a closet.

    We are definitely on the same wave length Kish, I think you echoed my thoughts exactly!

    No photo studio yet Kelly (that's our next project) Joking! Lol

    Hi Kathleen, I am storing bags in the drawers you see under the dresses and also above the single wall hanger on the mirror side.

    I laughed out loud when I read your comment Ping, that is too funny!!

    Good tip Anon, thank you!

  30. Wow...Loving this walk-in closet renovation! Impressive work on the hubby's part and so fun for you!

  31. Thanks Leah!! (His work always impresses me ;)

  32. Beautiful!! I did something similar but I could never find a nice 3-way mirror. Where did you get yours?

    I always worry about closets that have windows because of possible sun fading. Your treatments are gorgeous, but you might also consider putting a film on the glass...just a thought.

  33. Hi Allie! I actually bought three seperate mirrors and my husband mounted the middle mirror on the wall and the two on the sides are mounted on hinges so they can swing. I didn't even think about the windows actually, but it definitely is a concern for sure!

  34. Hubs did an awesome job! What a dream closet! Which closet shelving did you use? I love the corner rounded rod! Where did you purchase the shelving?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hi Anon!Thank you...He really did, didn't he?!! we used the closet maid shelving from home depot in the nickel color.

  36. I really love it! I am moving into a new home and need to design the master closet in a way to maximize the space! I will definitely look at the line at home depot and start making measurements! -j

  38. Hi!!! I'm currently renovating my house and remembered I had bookmarked your amazing closet. Can you tell me where you got your shoe rack? Also, how do you access your shoes that are at the very top?

    1. Hello Jacqueline! Congratulations on your renovations, that's always sooo exciting! I bought my shoe racks at Home Depot and I access my top racks with a little step stool. Best of luck with your DIY job ;)
