Praise the LORD for IKEA!!!! During one of my many trips to ikea during the renovation I ran across the pax wardrobe system. I had been coveting these wardrobes for months. But, at $120 a pop, and needing 7 of them. I just couldn't find myself to drop the dough. You can not imagine my excitement when I found pax wardrobes in the "as is" section of ikea. The color was antique, which was to be discontinued in the coming months. They had 10 in stock at $10 a piece. I told the clerk without hesitation, "i want all of them!". 7 had been my guess for months but I had not formally measured the space. But, I was not taking any chances on the wardrobe of my dreams.
While I was not crazy about the color, the hubby and I painted and primed them the same color as our bedroom walls with hopes of them blending in a bit. And so, the work began. We are thrilled with the outcome! I have a super organized closet where I am able to see everything I own. I opted for white linen curtains to give the room some softness since we did not do drapes anywhere in our home. The total cost of this dream closet was only $250 (including interior organization accsesories and fabric for curtain from ikea). While our home is oh so small, I don't think I will be able to find another closet that will give this one competition.
