Husband, 40, creates monochrome walk-in closet for his wife

A doting husband who transformed a disused attic into a stunning walk-in closet for his wife has won high praise across social media for the impressive DIY project. 

Rodolfo Cabrera, 40, from Maryland, created the bespoke monochrome closet at the home he shares with his wife Idaly, 37, and their daughter Josdallana. 

Mr Cabrera, who owns his own construction company, revealed he spent between $25,000 and $30,000 creating the breathtaking closet, complete with custom storage, a cozy nook and plenty of space to store her accessories.

The transformation was shared on Twitter by Josdallana and has since made Mr Cabrera and his family social media stars, with hundreds of social media users desperate to recreate the design at home. 

Speaking about the transformation, Mr Cabrera, who owns Remodeling and Design LLC, said: ‘My workers helped me out and they got paid for the help. For the closet, I used 2×4 for the framing and a drywall to build the walls.

‘I then had the drywall plastered and got it ready for the shelves and paint.

The room is accessed by a floating staircase with surrounding lighting from the living space

‘The shelves were made out wood planks. I used PVC laminate for the floor, which is a wood-looking plank but it’s made out of plastic and other materials. It’s also waterproof.’ 

The renovation took three weeks to complete and will be further improved once an air conditioning unit is added to help keep Mrs Cabrera cool. 

The finished result shows granite worktops with grey cupboards and in-built lighting to accentuate shoes and handbags on display and is accessed by an incredible floating staircase. 

To complete the look, Rodolfo accessorised the room with an orange accent chair and added grey panelling on one section of the wall to add texture.

The design, which is perfect for Mrs Cabrera’s 5ft frame, was widely praised on Twitter – with many saying they wanted to find their own DIY husband.
