Past + Present

 what used to be

if you are a frequent reader of my blog, then you should know by now that we are expecting! when a baby is in the works, things change, for the better most of the time. one of the main focus for us was the nursery..i gave up my 2nd room/walk-in closet and moved it to our office. i don't know why i didn't think it through when we first set it up. it was nice and airy...but the room was just too big for a walk-in. when the switch has been made, i felt like it belonged in the smaller space. when i walk in there, there's this feeling of coziness that just makes me wanna stay in there and try on some shoes for hours or something.
the vanity, then



this is how things look now:
things look a little squished on the shelf, but other than that, the space is just perfect. up on the walls i have sweaters/jackets, the bottom left row is all hoodies (don't judge), top right is blouses/shirts and bottom right is all tees! the dresses are hanging in the closet, with my wedding gown and the other shoe shelves.
:) one of my shoe racks. the rest of the shoes are in the actual closet (on the right)
the new vanity space :D

i'm so thrilledddd every time i go in there! i was thinking about adding shaggy rug in the middle. that way, the floor wont be ruined when i try on shoes! what do you guys think?

i love the new setup! can`t wait to see what the nursery will look like! i think a shaggy rug would definitely make your new dressing room more cozy!

I absolutely love your closet no matter what size it is! I hope when I get out of school soon I'll have the creativity to do something like that :D
