Weekend Inspiration: Real-Life Organized Closets

If you're like us, you have a closet in need of organization. We're going to try and carve out some time over the weekend to tackle our bedroom closet, but instead of poring over impossible-to-replicate photos of color-coordinated wardrobes from places like California Closets or the Container Store, we searched the AT archives for the most organized closets from real-life homes...

Judith's closet makeover project uses wallpaper to liven up an out-of-the-way storage space.

David and Im's OneSpace looks like a huge loft, but it's actually a 426 square foot apartment that won our Smallest Coolest contest in 2006.
