How to Makeover a Bedroom Closet - Step 3 (of 6)
I’ve been taking a little time every week to work on each of the 6 steps and I can’t wait to see how it turns out. Now, I know a lot of you probably move a lot faster on projects and that’s awesome sauce! I’m moving a little slower on presenting the steps to you guys, though, because not everyone works at the same pace and I don’t want anyone to feel overwhelmed (including myself) and I want to give you time to donate anything you don’t want and to grab the supplies that you’ll need to finish up the makeover!
I chose black velvet hangers in our closet for a couple of reasons. One is that I get so tired of my shirts constantly falling off the hangers. Anytime I would be looking for something specific, at least one shirt would fall off. Usually when I was late getting ready and I would get really irritated. Secondly, I wanted all the hangers to be the same color. Our closet started out with a rainbow of icky-colored hangers, some with broken pieces and that were different sizes. The black velvet hangers create a more cohesive look, as well! You can find the ones I used HERE. You don’t have to use velvet hangers, though, and any color will work, but I suggest sticking with one color throughout to make it more pleasing to the eye. You can find more hanger options HERE and HERE.
While we were transferring all our clothes to the new hangers, we found more pieces of clothing to donate that were just taking up space in the closet…yay! I’m going to list the old hangers on a local swap page and see if we can make a few dollars back, otherwise, they will be donated.
Another benefit of the velvet hangers is that they save space! So…you can either go shopping, or enjoy all the extra room and let your clothes breathe!
