Jul 19, 2018Blue, Color, How-To Projects, Trends

Let’s be real: a small closet is hardly enough space for a modern professional woman to store her wardrobe and shoes (OMG, the shoes!). So what better way to make good use of a spare bedroom—maybe one that currently serves as a messy resting place for dirty laundry—than to turn it into a hip, functional dressing room.
