Now that this is slated to become the nursery, I now have to share my closet! So, what to do other than have new closets installed!
I'll send pics later today.


Congrats Kirby!  I wish your family and your new child a great delivery and health!

Fantastic contest. Gives an opportunity for everyone to share their closet regardless of age (its tough being a college student!)

Yeah, I was thinking this as well. Still, nice pics in this thread.

P.S. Two hours left on our Cyber Monday sale.

Although I have more estrogen than testosterone, I have often visited these forums to research wardrobe topics for my husband and my son. I have even purchased from the classified section, and have found SF members to be overwhelmingly pleasant and welcoming. Shoe boxes are a topic that is near and dear to my heart, and since there is some organizational overlap between the sexes, I feel quite comfortable sharing with you a photo of the boxes I use to store my shoes.

If anyone would like more specifics on these boxes, feel free to PM me. I requested mine as a birthday gift from my husband and chose the high-gloss lavender boxes from http://www.closetfetish.com/about. I am attaching a photo taken when I was in the process of photographing the shoes and transferring them into these fabulous boxes. Since then, they have been incorporated into three different closets in the house. It's been a few years since I've done this, and unfortunately, I have had several of the photo frames fall off the end panels of their respective boxes, so I need to get some appropriate glue and reattach them.

I had the original version of these shoeboxes, which were shipped as rigid tops and bottoms. Since then, the creator has modified the box design so that the boxes ship flat and snap together upon arrival. I'm not sure if she is still producing them or whether she is simply selling off her existing stock. They were very well designed, by a true shoe lover. They were high enough to accommodate 4-inch heels in the standing position, which is important with fabrics like velvet, suede or satin where the finishes are compromised if the shoes are stored on their side. The interior of the box is lined with a contrasting color, which makes them even more beautiful to use. My lavender boxes are lined with a plum colored finish. I think the price point was $20 per box, at the time I acquired these.

I have since seen another producer who has copied the photo frame feature, but designed the photo end as a drop-down flap, so that the shoes in boxes at the bottom of a stack could be more easily accessed. My boxes can only be accessed by removing the lid. This can be a bit of a pain when the box you want to access is located near the bottom of a tall stack of shoeboxes.

I did enter the contest, in the hope that I might be one of the random winners. My husband's suit jackets are too large to fit on traditional wooden suit hangers, and they get that unfortunate bend in the fabric where the hanger ends too abruptly.

Okay... time for pictures of my closet. I just had these redone to create room for my (future) son's clothing... so there is a lot of empty rod space.

When will the winners be announced? 

post #105 of 128

Hi. I've been looking thru this forum for a while and this is my first post. Before winners are announced, this was my submission. I've always kept my closet this way so it was relatively easy to take a picture. Glad to see some other people's closets.

 

Cheers!
