Drool-worthy Shoe Closet (a mini project)

The "drool-worthy" pretty much applies to the shoes rather than the closet itself. You'll see below. (please scroll back up to see this thing I'm typing now, since I'm quite sure you'll all want to see the shoes first! haha)

Anyway, this room is really pretty as it is. The only problem is the lack of storage, especially for a girl who has a lot of stuff. And by stuff, I mean shoes, magazine, accessories -all those sort of unnecessary things that we ladies want to collect. Haha

Here's the wall where the shoe closet was installed.

The yellow cabinet, and the vanity will be moved to the other wall which has ceiling-height curtains. So there's no way I can hang or lean the mirror against the wall.

So a custom mirror was made to affixed to the vanity table to make it look like one unit, with matching hollywood-ish mirror bulbs! Repainted the whole thing a soft taupy gray color.

On to the shoe closet, the star of this post. Here's a close-up of the wallpaper we installed on the back of the shelves, which you can not see on the closet pictures below 'coz of the lighting. But I think it took this closet a notch higher in the glamour scale.

Here's the closet with the back lights turned off.

Do I have to remind you at this point that you are not reading a fashion blog?
