Last year, for our anniversary, my husband gave me one of the best gifts he’s ever gotten me…a closet makeover! For the past 9 years, we’ve had the same closet with the standard wire racks all around the top. While this type of closet design is fine for most, my husband and I had been using separate closets for the past 9 years- me using our master bedroom closet and him using our son’s playroom closet. We both have way too many clothes and shoes and not enough space so it was time for a change! After multiple rack falls and fixes, I reorganized our tired old closet and gave it a much-needed makeover.

At first, we considered having a closet company come in and do the redesign but after some research and a lot of YouTube videos, my husband decided to buy the materials from Lowes and do the install himself. There are so many kits, rods, and brackets to choose from it can get kind of confusing. Below I’ve listed the items we used to build and redesign our master bedroom closet.
You can find canvas bins just about anywhere- Target, The Container store, Ikea, Bed Bath and Beyond, Home Goods, and Tj Maxx. I got mine reasonably priced from Target. These are great for odds and ends that don’t get used daily. In mine, I store my purses/clutches, winter gear, flips flops, belts, and travel gear. You can also find mini chalkboard signs to label your bins on Amazon. A nice throw rug, stool, laundry basket, and light will bring the whole closet together.

Unfortunately, there are no instructions when buying these closet kits from Lowes. If you have a knack for building things, check out some YouTube videos and you can easily assemble your own closet kit. My husband was able to put ours together in just one weekend. You’ll also need to have a good circular saw.
