50% 0ff Expensive is still Expensive

I have been dreaming of something like this:

since we moved into our house. So on Thursday last week, we had Closets by Design come out and give our closet

their best estimate.

We wanted to compare DIY to a professional putting it in.


The estimate for our closet was $2730, that included 4 bar hangers, 14 shelves and a hamper in antique white finish. We have a 50% off coupon that would have brought the total to $1365. Whaaaaa?!

We haven't given up on a custom closet but have decided to explore more DIY options. Hopefully, this includes a trip to Ikea.

**Check back tomorrow for an exciting giveaway**

I dream about a custom closet like the one you pictured! DH is a carpenter, so whenever we actually have a closet worth doing, he is going to build it for me...hopefully in our next house!

Can't wait for the giveaway!
