Craving a Beautiful Closet May 31, 2012
There must be some serious organizing happening in Blogland! I just saw that Kathysue, at Good Life of Design, had a very in-depth closet organization tutorial Thursday. I admire her organizational skills, but have not gotten to that level of perfection, yet! There’s still hope!
Mr. Wonderful is stressing a bit about having to do some major updating in here, before the wood floors are installed in 2 weeks. Eventually, the open shelves are going to be converted into lower drawers and upper cabinets, with a countertop in-between. In the mean time, I thought this would be a good time to purge and stack.
All I do is organize by type, (jeans, yoga pants, t-shirts, etc.). No color coding here. The big basket is for scarves. I have so many scarves, I could open a scarf store, but that’s in another story.
…and I use belt hangers for the scarves I have hanging. Now that I have my shelves tackled, I’ll work on the hanging items. All of the clothes are going to have to go downstairs soon, so I’m going to get my exercise!
I repeated the exercise on Mr. Wonderful’s side. He’s got a couple of secret stash-piles, that I dare not touch! Need a receipt from 2009? A dog brush? How about a scuba diving snorkel? (Love you, honey!)
Remember, when organizing your closet, if you’re keeping it because you’re gonna lose those ten pounds or because you paid a lot of money for it, (even though it makes you look like you’re pregnant!), it’s time to say “adios”! There’s a reason you’re not wearing it, so come clean! The other rule of “closet organization, by Barbara”, is that if you don’t get rid of stuff, there will never be room for more!
Before I bid you farewell for today, I hope you have been oohing and aahhhing over my updated header, thanks to the beautiful and talented Ann Marie of Cascade Valley Design. I’m sure she’d love to create something beautiful for you, too!
Thanks so much for visiting! Your comments make my day!,
