Dressing Room Update - Elfa Closet System


Hi y'all! It's been about a year since I did a dressing room update and I have a hankering to move things around in the next few months so might as well share how the dressing room looks right now.

Since my last update, we have added an Elfa / Ikea system to the other wall of the room. I mainly use this side for longer pieces (like my maxi dresses and dusters), blazers and jackets. I added a few drawers to hold my lady garments and athleisure wear. I bought this valet rod from the Container Store and use it to hang the following day's outfit, during the days I actually plan ahead which - let's be honest - are far and few between :) It gives the dressing room almost like a store feel, so I can trick myself into shopping my closet and not an actual store hehe.

Knowing what I wanted this wall for, we designed and purchased a custom Elfa plan during one of their sales. I actually purchased everything over a span of 3 visits, whenever they had their 30% off sale. Took a bit of patience but it was well worth it. To border the Elfa system, we bought the skinny versions of the Billy bookcases from Ikea. The Elfa system definitely cost more than the other side of the room but I wanted some versatility in case I changed my mind. I can always add more drawers, add shelves, more hanging space, etc. with the Elfa system.

Mike DIY'ed this island from three Ikea bookshelves. When it's not piled high with clothes, I like using it to showcase my perfumes and jewelry. I plan on adding a glass or mirror counter-top soon.

I've been spending this holiday weekend decluttering and reorganizing my dressing room and office. It's crazy how much stuff can accumulate over the years! Does anyone else have a hard time parting ways with things? I just posted my Christian Louboutin Decollete pumps on Poshmark if anyone is interested in purchasing. They don't get any loving from me so I think it's time for them to go to a loving home :) Anyways, hope y'all enjoyed my little update, now going back to decluttering!

  4. Hi,
    I'm currently redoing my own dressing room and your pictures are a great inspiration! I was just wondering which Ikea bookshelves you used for the island, it's exactly what I'm looking for.
    Thanks!
