Spider’s: East-West Question – Closets…
NO, not who is IN them, but what do they look like.
Several of you have given me the honor to stop by the cottage for a spell, and some have even spent several evening. Just to refresh your memory, the cottage is a 1927 Livery Stable that was converted to a one bedroom cottage in the 1940’s – so closet space is at a sheer minimum. There is ONE closet for the entire house – in the bedroom and it has no door. There is a closet in the living room but it houses the hot water heater, fire extinguisher and other items – not suitable for clothes. So, needless to say, closet space is at a premium.
To improve the situation, when I re-did the bedroom, the ex found this cool rolling closet – it matches the wire shelving that is on wheels and is in the kitchen and ties into the wire shelving on wheels I am using as night tables in the bedroom also. He who decorates helped me assemble the entire piece when he was here and it is now up and functioning. I have placed it on front of the existing closet which is housing winter coats, suits, dress pants and the like. The mobile closet is where dress shirts are hung, sport shirts, t-shirts and shorts are folded and run about shoes are kept. There are 4 cloth bins in each of the night stands were underoo’s, undert’s, socks, magazines, toys and other accoutrement are stored. So, for the first time in 3 years, I have an organized bed room and not a room that just houses a bed.
Below are poor pics from my Slivr phone of what it looks like. HWD added the splashes of red to the room to make it pop. I am hoping he will share his west coast closet and all of you in between with do the same.
