A walk-in-closet has been on my wishlist for a long time, but we thought of it as an expensive thing to make, so we just put the idea on hold. We also had trouble finding solutions that fitted the room in a way that we wanted it.
After some serious planning a few weeks ago, we saw that we could make a walk-in-closet on a low budget and still get it as “dreamy” as we ( or I *smile* ) imagined.
- As for the clothing rack we just used STOLMEN. It´s quite thick so it doesn´t bend even though it´s long and has a lot of weight on it. Oh, we actually had to bend all the hangers a bit to get them to fit on the rack, since it´s so thick ( this is what you do, when you want things to be affordable ha ha ).
- As shelves we went to a local hardware store and bought 30 cm wide shelves that we got cut in the exact length. We also bought a shorter to make space for long dresses etc. hanging from the clothing rack. All the shelves are attached with mouldings underneath that are painted white.
- For high heels, belts, jewellery and ties, I´ve used BYGEL ( that is meant for kitchen towels ) that I spray painted in gold for a more glamorous look. ( Only 19 NOK for each! ) You can get a closer look of the shoe rack here.
- I also made myself a dressing table using a white shelf with mouldings underneath. Above I had to have two LEDSJÖ lamps that created the right “girly” look for a dream walk-in-closet. I love sitting here putting on my make up – you have no idea!
For everything including the mirrors we ended up using 4300 NOK (about $720) – not so bad, huh?
I hope you like it, and that it might give you some ideas for your own dream walk-in-closet!
PS! I´m not sponsored by Ikea ( although I should have been *smile* ). I only link to their products to make it easier for you, in case you like to make something similar some day.
