We’ve been thinking pretty hard about how we are going to organize our master closet. It’s a new room created during the remodel by combining three closets, one that was in our old office (now the master bedroom), one from the bathroom and one that was in the gym.
It’s a decent size room (I forget exact dimensions right now) and we had wanted to enclose the left and right side of the room with doors creating his and her closets inside the room. This is so that no one would see the mess (including us) from the doorway. We initially wanted wood doors with frosted glass inserts but they’re more than we wanted to pay. Then we considered aluminum doors from The Sliding Door Company which are really nice but also kind of more than we felt like paying.
Plus they’re nice but not really indicative of any style but nice. Then super creative Fabio came up with an idea to create bars and shelving like an All Saints Spitalfield store. If you’re not familiar with All Saints, it’s a UK based men’s and women’s clothing store. The merchandising of their stores is AMAZING. The first time I walked by an All Saints store front I was mesmerized. The entire store front is glass and filled top to bottom, left to right with vintage sewing machines. All of the fixtures are created from vintage industrial apparel manufacturing machines, like huge looms. Their goal is to create the feel of an old time apparel factory. Very cool. I’ve got to go take inspiration pics for the welder so I’ll post those soon.
We would like to create wrought iron bars to hang clothes on and wood shelves bordered by iron for folded items. We bought a vintage sewing machine table for $10 at a yard sale that will work perfectly as a little dressing table. On the walls behind the shelf we’re thinking maybe to print some kind of industrial pictures on wall paper so that you don’t see just the painted wall behind the clothes. That’s what we figured out this morning.
