My candle closet

Today I am sharing my candle closet.  Yes, you heard right, my candle closet.  When we first looked at this house I wasn't sure why there was this little room right before you entered the master bedroom.  It has bookcases on one wall and a fireplace.  I guess you could use it for an office but it is a little small.  It also has a small closet that is just shelves.  When I first saw this closet I thought this is perfect for all my candles.  To the right of this door is the door to the master bedroom.


So here is what my closet looks like.


The top shelf is used for candle holders and shades.  You can but tall items on this shelf as it goes up a few more feet to the ceiling.


The other shelves I use for my candles.  I have two shelves that are full of Yankee Candles (one of my favorite candles to buy).  It looks like I have room for some more.


I use the bottom of the closet to store my throws, blankets and extra pillows.


I am guessing that there are not a lot of people who have a closet that is solely used for candles but it is an extra space that I didn't know what I would put in there.  It looks more like a linen closet to me but we have one in the master closet already.  I am almost done decorating in this room so I will be posting those pictures later on.

    1. Thank you Lori. I wasn't sure what this closet was for since the master bathroom has it's own linen closet. I think I might need to fill up the shelves. They look a little bare.

  3. I am going to show this post to my husband--he thinks I am the only woman who has a candle closet!! I love to see them all lined up by scent and season--and I just need to open the door and pick what I need at the moment...

    1. I am glad that there is someone else that has one too. I didn't want to be alone. At our other house I used the guest bedroom closet as my catch all for decor and candles. This house has more storage so I thought that little closet was perfect for candles. I wish it was a little bigger to hold all my candle holders.

  4. Wow this is fantastic. It's like having a Home Goods in your own home. And, I'm sure it smells heavenly.

    1. I just didn't know what to use the closet for so I thought it would be great for all my candles. I have even added a few new ones since this post. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Pamela, I am glad to hear that someone else had one too. My hubby thought I was crazy too when I told him what I was going to use it for. I said to him " what else would I put in here?"

  8. I love it Jody! I thought I had lots of candles but you've got me beat ;) Our Target closed so I got some Yankee ones at 50% off. Do you like Bath & Body Works candles? Would love to invite you to link up any of your posts at our party on my blog please. Enjoy the rest of your week!

    1. Thank you Kendra. I have a few more candles that are being used around the house too. I have never bought any of the Bath & Body Works candles. Maybe I need to pay them a visit. Thanks for the party and have a great weekend!

    1. You know this is the only collection that my husband doesn't complain about. He sees it that if we have a power failure for a long period we have candles to use.

  10. This made me smile! I have a few candles that I store in a cupboard in my laundry room. I use to love Yankee candles. But the older I've gotten when I burn scented candles they make my eyes burn. Weird huh? I can't use scented lotions either. I mainly use Scenty burners but can only plug them in for about 15 min. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,

    1. Candles don't bother me right now but my husband doesn't like the smell of them when they are burning anymore. I can only use my candles mainly in the sitting the room. Sometimes I turn on my tart warmer in the kitchen if he is gone for a few hours just to make the room smell good a little while.

  14. Great idea! I WISH I had an extra closet for candles. But I do have them all on shelving in the storage area of the basement. Came over from Marty's.

    1. I have always wanted one area to store my candles. I just wish it was a little bigger to hold all of my candle holders too.

  16. Yes, you do have quite the collection of candles! I thought I did, but mine is a mere drop in the bucket. I think it's wonderful that you have such an easily accessible place to store and see what you have. Living in AZ, I have to keep mine inside, but a couple of shelves in our laundry room is all I get.....hmph!
