I'm alive | Closet

I'm alive, I promise! 
I actually was out of town friday-sunday and took that time to relax, eat, and just chill. 
My roommate and I went to Beaufort for the weekend using a Living Social deal, and it was fantastic! I'll post about it (with pictures) some time this week, i have yet to upload them...whoops. 
. . .
Now onto the story/progression that is my closet (and apparently photo taking skills). 
Let's walk through the time line that this poor thing has been through. 
This was my mother & father's closet once and it was full of their clothes/shoes/etc (nicely organized) but still just...lacking. Once my grandmother and grandfather moved in...it turned to chaos. You see my grandmother, bless her heart, is a hoarder. Yup...so this is how the closet looked for oh, i dont know 5 or so years. BRACE YOURSELF...yes it is that bad, and you've been warned. 
Yikes right?! 
I then busted my BUTT cleaning that thing out and i was left with it looking like this...
Aww, so much cleaner but still mildly offensive for a girls closet. 
Let's just let the pictures do the talking...
Then i updated the hangers and reorganized a little (MONTHS later)...
. . .
And sine then...(february of this year) i haven't really touched it. 
Well, when i had that photoshoot (mentioned here & here) and Susan & Shayla were coming to raid my  closet (while taking pictures) i knew i had to spruce it up, even it was just a little bit. 
So here is how my closet is looking today. 
[& yes i realize the quality of the photos here are not that great, that's what i get when the lighting BLOWS...]
. . .
So i think i've made some progress...right?
. . .
I can't wait to paint in there, and do a few more things, but for now this is totally helping me get by. 
. . .
Now i'm excited to catch up on all of the awesome blogness that i've missed out on in the last, oh...i dont know week or so...i know, so bad. 
<3 y'all. 
. . .
What about you, have you updated your closet recently? 
What does your dream closet look like? 
Spill.

Wow! You made some serious progress I love your closet!

My closet doesn't look too bad, but it is a disaster. I have soooo much stuff crammed in there. The worst part is that it is DARK and there isn't a way to remedy that because of where it is located.

Can't wait to hear about your trip!

I envy that closet. I want a walk-in so bad so A.) I have space for all my stuff and B.) I can make it look cute and stylish just like you did!

That's one organized closet!

We have four large closets in this house but mostly we use them to store things that we don't want ruined. We have a basement but it's nasty! I actually spent this morning cleaning a good bit of it out. Lots of garbage and a vanload to Goodwill. :)

But our new house... the closets are such a joke haha! Seriously... pretty sure they are like only a foot deep. What's the point? I'm thinking I should just take the doors off and put shelves in and have built in bookshelves?? Maybe.
