I am incredibly fortunate that we have a small room in the house that we have agreed to change to a dressing room for me. It makes me very happy.
We started off with a plan to convert this room to a place that would accommodate my gazillion dresses (yes, I only wear dresses, even during the winter time), my yoga pants (because that is what I work out in), and my shoes (because I love shoes)- as well as a 'dressing table' to do make up, and space for a laundry basket.
The room had yucky carpet to start with and peeling plaster walls. Mission one was to remove the carpet.
After removing the carpet, I painted the 'little closet' turqoise. This is my 'shoe section'.
We painted the rest of the dressing room a soft pink from Martha Stewart paints. The color is cal;ed 'Ballet Slipper Pink'.
After this was done, I got all my stuff in. A big 'commercial rack' to hang my clothes until I have some money saved for an Elfa system from the container store- plus, I am waiting for it to go on sale. Old IKEA cabinets I own for folding space for my yoga pants and purses. An IKEA Trofast storage piece for the unmentionables, scarves, gloves etc. An old crate and barrel bookcase/desk for a 'dressing table' that I can use for make up etc. An old container store 'rolly' for t-shirts, night clothes and etcs. And this is the 'final-for-now' look.
All that is left to do is to change the light fixture and hang some art-work. And I do have some fun art work planned for the room. It feels nice having my clothes out of boxes.
