So we have this small room that is attached to our master bedroom, that is currently being used as a playroom. It's a very odd layout because the previous owners put an addition on the house, so this room has two doors, one going out to a hallway & one going into our bedroom. I have always wanted to eventually turn it into a walk in closet, and now it's finally happening! We will be moving the playroom to another (larger) room, so no worries there

Here is the current room, my boys playroom:

We are trying to do this on a budget, so no custom cabinetry here. We went with the Martha Stewart Living Closet Collection from Home Depot, and hubby will be installing it himself (wish him luck!). We will start painting this weekend, and I will update this thread often with our progress. I am hoping to be done by the end of the month!

We are doing the same paint color as the bedroom, to tie everything together, and I may even remove the door from the bedroom to this room, as it won't really be necessary, still undecided about that.

This is the only picture I happen to have of the paint color & trim:

And the cabinetry is white:

We have 2 of these starter kits, one on each side of the room, plus additions. The right side (where there's currently a bookcase and chalkboard decal) will have additional floor to ceiling corner shelves & will be used for handbags. The left side will have floor to ceiling slanted shoe shelving in the middle.

And the most exciting part for me, decor! Interior design is like my second love after handbags, so this one will be extra fun.

I ordered this flush mount chandelier from

And this white sheepskin/faux fur rug from

I got it in 5x8 and now will be on the lookout for a large ottoman or chaise lounge, I think I'll be able to find something at Home Goods or TJ's.

YAY!!! How exciting! I'd love to turn my son's playroom into my closet later and hubby and I have even discussed it so I'm extra interested to see your progress. I love the chandelier you've chosen and the rug looks so chic and snuggly!! I'm looking forward to checking back often

Congratulations, how exciting. I love the idea of turning a spare adjoining room into a WIC. I look forward to seeing pics of the progress.

Looks great!!! We are remodeling our walk in closet this month too (but at earlier stages than you - haven't even picked paint yet or a closet organizer) and I am on the lookout for ideas for a chandelier... your picks for the decor are excellent! I especially love the chandelier.

Have you thought about using white Billy bookcases with glass doors from IKEA for the handbags? that might be a nice alternative to open shelving, they are budget friendly!
