Decorating Lessons: Closet Makeover

This "Decorating Lessons" video shows how we made over a basic closet into an organized, beautiful space that lessens the stress of preparing for the day.

If you're like me, the most frustrating part of your morning routine is finding what you need in a midst of a disorganized closet. I'm Lacey Howard, editor of Decorating magazine, and today, I'm going to show you an amazing organizational makeover that will make your wardrobe sit up and take notice. Right now, this closet misses out on major storage potential. Shoes are lined up haphazardly along the floor. Handbags are stashed on a hard-to-reach high shelf, and blah bifold doors don't do us any favors in the style department. Why skimp on class in the closet? We said goodbye to this spindly wire-rack system, instead a pretty feminine dresser and new shelving gives us valuable closet real estate and help separate sheets from shirts. Finally, the closet is as functional as it is beautiful. The bifolds are banished in favor of silk taffeta drapery panels, and inside the closet, everything a girl needs to greet the day is within easy reach. Purses are displayed on a fabric-covered board. Helpful labels identify the contents of every box and basket at a glance. Even dirty duds looked elegant in a fabric-trimmed laundry bin on the floor. Don't let disorganization deter you! Make over your closet with organization and style. Trust me! A closet where everything is at your fingertips will put a smile on your face even before that first cup of coffee. For Decorating magazine, I'm Lacey Howard.
