When we were faced with the dilemma of whether or not to tear out the closet in the front bedroom, we struggled that the original closet was way too small, and consisted of shelving, and we'd be lacking sufficient storage and space for guests to hang their clothes. Also the closet in question was a second closet that was most likely added to the room in the 70's or 80's, and was made of wood paneling (shown in other posts). We had considered putting sheetrock over it, and at least blending it into the room. But it took up a good bit of space, and truly didn't help the proportions of the room.

The 'appreciation' part of this post is due to the fact that my mom saved us from this dilemma when she offered to buy us the much-desired wardrobe that we saw while visiting Walterboro on a work trip. Three weeks or so after we originally saw the piece in an antique store, we called the shop owner and he still had it! So as a Christmas/Anniversary gift to both Brian and I, my mom & Gene purchased it for us. I will tell you that it is beautiful, and although I haven't had a chance to research it much, I plan to. Unfortunately, it was in Walterboro, which is about 1.5-2 hours from Charleston, but it just so happens that our office has a huge high school project being constructed there, and we were able to sweet-talk the contractor on that job into picking it up for us! He delivered it to the house last night, wrapped in cellophane, and that's how it will stay through the duration of the construction project! So for now, you only get to see a photo of it all wrapped up!
