Reader Redesign: Sleeping In Style

When Molly sent her bedroom makeover pics our way, we couldn’t wait to share her fabulous transformation inspired by the Ikea “built-ins” that we created in our own master bedroom. Here’s her letter:

My husband and I live in a tiny 800 square foot condo, that has pretty much no storage. For the past two years we’ve been sharing one closet. We’ve finally become motivated to do some revamping/remodeling changes. After seeing your fabulous bedroom wardrobes and doing some Ikea research we decided wardrobes in our bedroom were the perfect solution to our clothing storage needs. The project was super easy and we are so happy with the results! I finally have enough room for all of my clothing & shoes! Thanks for being our inspiration & all of your other great ideas.  -Molly


Such a transformation, right? And the fact that there’s oodles of storage behind those fabulous striped curtains is the icing on the cake. Thanks so much for sending your little closet project our way, Molly. Happy shoe shopping!

    Its so fun to come to your site and see REAL transformations! Its like taking what we see in magazines and making it come to life for the “normal” person.

    What a great upgrade, Molly. I totally understand where she’s coming from. Our apartment is 480 square feet, and for some reason, Germans never have built-in closets. Our clothes are hanging off of windowsills while we remodel the kitchen, so it’s really exciting to see someone with a small space tackle this problem. Go Molly!

    Love your website! It is so great to see young people getting excited about older homes. My husband and I are 45 and live in a suburb north of Dallas in a beautiful 32 year old home 2300 square foot home with our teenage and college age sons. Our neighborhood is in the midst of many very large newer homes. Although the new homes are lovely, we just have always been drawn to the history and character of older homes. It is so much fun to update and personal them. I hope more young couples will follow your lead and take a chance on these homes giving them a beautiful new life.

    This is such a great idea, and I love that it worked for more than just Sherry and John–that is, it’s possible for those other than the pros to execute and enjoy. Congrats on your newfound extra storage (and *wow* bedroom), Molly!

    I am such a sucker for great wall decals (my go-to site is, so I had the most fun looking at what they have on their wall! :-)

    Thanks for sharing!
