Monday was "tackle the closet" day! I have procrastinated on this project for seven months. It was time to let go. Even the box full of classics
After removing all the hanging and piles of folded items
For the longest time my husband had the larger custom closet and I had the standard 2x6. Our home had two small bedrooms and two large bedrooms. I finally talked him into combining the two small bedrooms. He decided since my closet backed up to the closet in the next room we would combine the two and give me a larger closet. I suggested just going all the way across that end of the adjoining room. Yay! Now I have the larger closet!
This venture became an all day and into-the-night project. I was somewhat grateful when my husband came home mid-day and told me he was heading to the camp for the night. I was able to take my time and finish cleaning off the bed, which I accomplished during commercial breaks from The Event! I loaded down a rod in my car with over 100 garments on hangers and 30 more items in a box for a friend to donate to their church closet. After my granbaby girl left I headed for Lowes to get shelving and struggled with that for an hour or so, which got the hat boxes off the floor and resulted in a couple of minor injuries. Of course, you know how one thing leads to another? I had already eliminated a shelf in the hall closet to hang all of my jackets and sweaters which meant I needed a location for all the extra pillows to land (since I took their shelf) and decided to add an upper shelf to the guest room closet. Tomorrow! Tomorrow! There's always tomorrow!
The gadget below is one of my favorite things!
I think I found these at Tarzhay a/k/a/ Target!
And another fave!
These expandable racks are perfect for
hanging bags and scarves!!
Every closet needs a couple of pretty things, don't ya think?
