9 Awesome Closet Makeovers

dirty closet

By their nature, closets are conducive to disorganization. Think about it, they're dark little rooms that we can close off from view. If yours aren't messy, there just might be something wrong with you...or you're Martha Stewart. OR you're one of these folks who got all Curbly on their closets and made them over for the entire world to see. Some underwent the full treatment, others were only tidied to great effect.

The closet pictured above needed some serious help. Thankfully, it found it. Here's what it looks like after, with the help of bi-fold doors, melamine shelving and a tower of cubbies.

Good morning MAve, I like the make overs my favorite would have to be the pink one, if you can't do a room in pink, do the closet. Nice stuff. EJ
