A pretty closet. Pretty clothes. What more could a girl ask for?

Whether you are in need of a closet, or you want to show off your pretty clothes, exposed closets are the way to go, and not hard to re-create at all! Exposed closets are all the rage right now; here is your step-by-step guide so you can create your very own in less than an hour and well under $100!

What you need:


  1. Screw the 4 extra long screws into the 2 pipe clips on the bottom of the Ikea Lack shelf
  2. Slip the curtain rod through the pipe clips
  3. Hang shelf on the wall following the Ikea instructions. Keep in mind when placing the shelf that clothes will be hanging from the rod, so higher is better.
