This Mum’s Kmart/IKEA Wardrobe Makeover is What Dressing Room Dreams are Made Of

Once upon a time, a beautiful bride-to-be from Perth asked her charming fiance for a simple request: a dressing room space that’s all her own. One where her clothes, shoes, jewellery and accessories can live in perfect wardrobe harmony.

In other words?


With a bippidy, boppidy, boop, off her fiance went in search of the perfect storage units to build her dream dressing room. He returned and got to work, spending hours perfecting the space. It took him about four days to complete the task at hand.

And the result? Just you wait and see…

Welcome to closet heaven

Leanne Fletcher is literally living the closet dream thanks to her talented fiance, Dan. Complete with an entire wall dedicated to shoes, this is the most magnificent wardrobe makeover we’ve ever seen.

Carrie and the rest of the SATC crew would be so jealous.

DIY dressing room done right 

Bride-to-be Leanne shared her stunning wardrobe makeover in a Facebook group, allowing us to drool over what she gets to play in every morning! All of the furnishings are from IKEA including IKEA’s PAX sliding doors, MALM drawers, TESESIA curtains, BILLY bookcases, and KOMPLEMENT drawer inserts.

Her fiance then complimented the furniture with popular Kmart items including the grey velvet bench, fairy lights, make-up holders, candles, flowers and vases and all poster frames.

We love the artwork above the shoe station. And the sheer curtains! Oh and the shaggy white rug and shiny chandelier. It’s such a blissful space with plenty of room for bags, jackets, clothing, shoes, everything!

Ladies, this is #WardrobeGoals at its finest.

DIY on a budget

Dan, who is a painter by trade, also managed to save a small fortune by heading to Bunnings and trying his luck at DIY. For the centre island unit the couple got quotes $2,000 from a carpentry company.

“We used two sets of the IKEA malm drawers ($149.00 each) placed them back to back,” Leanne tells Mum Central.

“My fiancé bought some wood from Bunnings ($50) and cut to size to create the cubes in the middle and then fixed crystal handles to the fronts. They were also from Bunnings ($50) so the whole thing cost us $400 in total.”

‘Quite a shock’

Since Leanne shared her dressing room on Facebook, she’s been inundated with comments and compliments.

“I wasn’t expecting to get such an overwhelming response to the photos of the dressing room, it was quite a shock!” Leanne tells Mum Central.

People are absolutely loving what her hubby-to-be has done to this dream DIY wardrobe makeover. He’s definitely a keeper!
