I can't blame the closets anymore.

I told you here that I was blaming my daughter's closets for making us late to church each week, well I cannot blame the closets anymore. The cute carpenter came through for me again, he always comes through for me. He has such a love affair going on with his power tools though, that I am not sure if he creates awesome things out of wood for my benefit, or just to satisfy his passion for woodworking. Either way, I suppose I should not complain. He gets it done, and here was the process.

The set-up:
The design process:We know the design will work as long as the Michael Kors shoes with "the bling on them" fit on the shelf?
I painted what he built:They sold lemonade:
Then my carpenter installed it all:

The best part: full extension drawers. They extend all the way out and you can see everything in the drawer at once. The old dresser that we were using almost fell over several times while the girls were searching for clothes. So I guess the best part of this project is actually that no one has to worry about dying anymore while trying to find an outfit.Closet number two now has double rows for hanging clothes. Top row for the big girl, bottom row for the little one.

Full view:

Maybe this is the best part: all concealed behind closet doors. Love it!

Linking up with Met Monday today and The Idea Room and Kimba!

What a wonderful thing for your husband to love--power tools! I tell you, his work is just wonderful. Thank you for showing us this latest example of his handiwork. Boy, do I wish that my closet were that organized!

Oh I am SOOOO jealous!! I have to show my husband and the girls. They will go crazy!! I just spent a week trying to clean out their room so I could actually get in. This is just fabulous!!! My husband is building some corner china cabinets for me out of walnut, so I can't complain that we haven't done anything in the girls' room yet:-)
