A little while ago I shared the plan for our master bedroom remodel & the beginning of our 2 master bedroom closets progression.
Master Bedroom Before
Framing out the Master Bedroom Closets 2 Doors
We started by framing out the 2 master bedroom closets on either side of the fireplace.
Master Bedroom Closets – Feature Wall with Vertical Trim
We decided to make the outside wall of the closets & fireplace a feature wall.
We utilized vertical trim to cover the joints in the drywall (saving us time & the mess of finishing drywall) & to give height to the room.
Painting the Master Bedroom Feature Wall White
We primed & painted the drywall & the wood we added to the fireplace wall.
We painted the fireplace wall Sherwin Williams bright white to match the rest of the trim in the house & we painted the walls of the bedroom Sherwin Williams kestrel white.
It feels wonderful to have this room painted & mostly unpacked.
I can see this master bedroom soon becoming our own private retreat.
Since we moved in fourteen months ago it has felt like a staging area for Jason’s tools & boxes we didn’t know where to put.
I am currently on the hunt for some curtain panels for the windows, a new ceiling fan, & a new duvet cover and pillows for our bed.
We also want to get a chaise or a love seat for the room.
Master Bedroom Remodel After
Below is what the outside of our closet looks like now after we finished remodeling our master bedroom…(you can check out that reveal here)
Master Bedroom Closets – DIY Custom Closet Layout & Organization Ideas
Her Master Bedroom Closet
For the inside of my closet Jason re-used a closet system that was in the existing master closet.
To dress it up a bit he trimmed this system out with 1x2s on the face of the shelving.
This makes what was a very cheap looking custom closet system look much substantial & higher end.
His Master Bedroom Closet
For Jason’s closet he re-used the plywood taken out from the built in shelving that was in the room.
Jason’s closet will still have a walk through to kids side of the 2nd floor so he built in floor to ceiling shelving on one side of the closet.
DIY Custom Master Bedroom Closets Shelves
On the other side he built in some shelving behind & upper & lower hanging bar.
Our master bedroom closets will still have one more closet.
We hope to eventually make this closet into just a linen closet but for now it holds both Jason’s clothes & all of our bedding.
Here’s what we hope to do next in our master bedroom…
We plan on puling up the old carpet & laying down hardwood floors on the whole second floor & adding baseboard molding.
Now that our closets are done Jason has started turning our former closet in our youngest’s bedroom.
He took down most of the half walls from the closets & the room feels so much bigger!!!
I hope our master bedroom closets inspires you to create diy custom closets a try!
