the closets of our lives: the purple closet

No, this isn't our spare bedroom. It's the
closet in our spare bedroom. And its closet.

In one of my recent rambling conversations with Jeannie, I mentioned the fact that our house has kind of wacky closets.

Wacky? How so?

Well, all of the closets have their own closets.

Nobody likes wasted space, after all. So each upstairs bedroom has a large closet, and since there's plenty of space to spare in the eaves, each closet has its own closet inside, most larger than a standard apartment closet. None of this explains why the spare bedroom's closet got painted purple, though (we may never know).

"Blog it!" says Jeannie.

So for the next few days I'll be showing you our closets. They're each different, and they're each really strange. Today's closet, the purple closet, is fairly unexceptional other than its color and size (and no, the pictures aren't doing it justice -- it's actually a fabulous purple). It's in the back bedroom upstairs, the one we're using as our office right now. This room will eventually be the guest room, and our guests will have an awful lot of space to store their clothes, unless we open it up and turn it into a desk nook or something.

And yes, those are our dining room chairs. The table is... somewhere else. This is what happens when you live in a renovation.

Your closet has a window??

They all do! And decorative molding, no less. Weird, I know.

I wonder if that was considered the "dressing room" to the smaller closet. One of my old apartments had a set up like that, except it had a built in dresser and mirror. They sometimes had a little chair to sit on while you chose your outfit.....

Your closet is bigger than my master bathroom ;-)

That is a fabulous purple.

Wow, I never thought I would say that...
