Last month, we finally came up with a new theme for our house and renovated our guest bedroom. The first part of the project was the closet. I am sharing with you today, my DIY Closet Under $100.  

Read on to see the before and after pictures!



My husband and I were planning to renovate our guest bedroom since we started to move into the house a few years back. What we did back then was to keep everything as is but only paint the walls in a different color and put wallpaper up for an accent wall.

Last month, we finally came up with a new theme for our house as we are planning to have it up on Airbnb in the future. I am going to talk more about our idea on my upcoming post, and show the look of the entire room.

The first area we decided to start the project in this room was the closet. I feel like it was perfect timing as I was on my Instagram as usual, and I saw this picture of a pretty closet that looked like the right style I imagined for our guest bedroom. The style that fits our theme just right. So, I showed my husband the photo, and we both agreed to the look.

What we did, we went to Loews and got a few pieces of wood, closet rod, and some screws, and we were all set to start our DIY project.

These are what we got:

($31) x 2 Pine Boards (3/4-in x 16-in x 8-ft) 

($16) x 1 Wood Closet Rod (96-in L x 1.375-in H x 1.375)

($6) x 1 Box of Interior Wood Screws (#8 x 2)

($12) x 1 Quart of White Paint 

Total Cost: $96

Here is what we did:

  1. We took off the doors, railings, top flaps, and the old hanger inside the closet.
  2. We painted all sides of the closet white.
  3. We measured and cut the rod into three parts (2 short ones for the support bars, and one long piece for the clothes hangers). Then screwed all parts together before installing in the closet. 
  4. We then measured the length of the closet and cut one of the pine boards to length. We took the other pine board and cut it into three equal pieces and screwed them on both ends of the long piece and one in the middle.
  5. Lastly, we fitted the shoe shelf into the closet.  


This is the source of my closet inspiration! The photo popped up on my Instagram home feed at the right time when I was thinking about re-doing my guest bedroom.


The image is from @TaraMilkTea account. As I am a fan of her work and have been following her account for a while. This closet shot speaks to me the most about what I was looking for. So I went ahead and re-did the closet.

Here is my Guest Bedroom Closet now.

Take a look around on how I styled everything. My plan is to keep everything simple and neutral.


This is the “BEFORE” photo when we first got the house. Over the years we have changed it up by painting it white but still kept everything the same. Just last month we decided to give it a facelift.


This is the final look for what we changed the closet to look like, similar to the inspiration photo. Not exactly the same as we kept the raw wood material as is. I love that the color of the wood matches perfectly with the floor we used.

“Fashion you can buy, but style you possess. The key to style is learning who you are, which takes years. There’s no how-to road map to style. It’s about self expression and, above all, attitude.”
