Solution for a small master closet….the DRESSING ROOM!

What does the creative woman do when she needs more closet space?  Here is a great solution when you have an extra bedroom.  These hanging clothes closets from Container Store ($49) line one wall and the opposite wall is mirrored….perfect for trying on and sizing up the look!  Other ideas I have seen are adding a vanity dressing table and stool and clear plastic shelving for shoes.

I thought it was such a great article I wanted to keep the link for future reference.
