From Stuffed To Spacious: May’s Closet Transformation

April 30, 2015 // Makeovers

The thing about closets is that they F with even the neatest of humans. You start out super tidy, but a week later the whole thing looks like a tornado ripped through it. May Kwok is a victim of said tornado. Her apartment is so neat, but as a DJ sheโ€™s out most nights and having to figure out outfits. Add to that the insane amount of clothes she receives from designers every month, and her wardrobe gets out of control very fast. Thereโ€™s a lot coming in and not a lot going out. This is where we come in. We helped May purge a ton of clothes (she filled three trash bags!) and moved a lot of things to her second closet to allow her easy access the things in her main one. Our favorite bit? Using every color tubular hanger The Container Store has.ย  Click through the slideshow for the process.

Good luck finding what you’re looking for in this!

Everything is so stuffed in, you couldn’t possibly get another hanger in there. Not even a wire one.

She had a handy over the door rack (but we found a better one for her)

May loves shoes and has a million pairs. However, they were SLIGHTLY disorganized. Lol.

Not great.

We started out by turfing everything from the shelves and going through wants and don’t wants with May. She lives for a chunky knit and has a bazillion, so we filed those on the top shelf by color. Then we did the same with jeans, skirts and her collection of leather pants.

You know how the rainbow hangers look sick all hanging together at The Container Store? We were like, let’s do that! Turned out pretty cute. Hangers, $.32 each at The Container Store

Sweaters look so much better when folded with similar colors and patterns

Already we feel like the closet is breathing a sigh of relief.

These clear shoe drawers are amazing to give an almost OCD level of tidiness to closets. May has a lot of heels and wedges so we got the men’s size to make sure her shoes could fit. Men’s shoe drawer, $12.99 each at The Container Store

The drawers are awesome because they stack super securely and the drawers glide REALLY smoothly.

The rainbow effect turned out so cute we could have stared at it all day

Here’s the full look. You almost don’t want to close the doors at night so you can admire it.
