I converted a spare bedroom into our master suite Cedar Walk-in Closet. The room is 11’ x 14’. I used 600sf of tongue and grove 1/4” aromatic cedar on the walls and ceiling. The trim was rough cedar which I planed then shaped as needed. We closed off the original doorway into the hall, and opened a wall into the master bedroom and finished the opening with double doors and double mirrors on the bedroom side.

This turned out great. I love the look that the gives to the closet and I know it smells wonderful. With over 150 sq ft this is a big closet and I see that you managed to squeeze a few of your clothes in there as well.

This is a wonderful addition to your home that will give your wife more room for her outfits and shoes. :)

is that not too much of a good thing?
not sure if i could sleep in the adjacent room. did you put any kind of finish on the juniper(Tennessee cedar)?
With asthmatic people in the family i couldn’t do something like that.

The project does look great, and as that wood darkens to a blood colour , it will improve with age.
thanks for the post

It does look great. I really like the look and smell of cedar. I’m not sure I would do that much woodwork and then fasten some white metal shelves in there. But, what can you do.
