Weee…New Closet is Finished!

And I love it! Almost all my clothes and shoes are in that closet (still gotta keep some tees and jeans in the master closet for those “throw something on” days.) It all fits with room to spare.


Ooops…A big mess on the bed.
Painted (gray) and partially shelved.
Shoe wall…a freaking SHOE WALL…7 shelves which can hold 10 boxes each.
Some of the shoes will be hidden which is why I try to have a picture on every box. I’ve got some updating to do as some boxes are missing pics. It’s a really great way to find the shoe you need quickly. I stole this idea from a Clean House episode. Clear shoe boxes work well too. I love the black shoe boxes with the red trim but sadly cannot find any more. I found them at Ross, Marshall’s and TJ Maxx, practically stalking every store in two cities to get as many as I could. Now I try to keep all my shoe boxes for any new pairs of shoes.
Top Shelf – Hat Box storage, Sweater box storage
Top Hang – shirts organized by color and type (sweaters, button-downs/blouses, tees, tanks)
Middle Shelf – Boot box storage
Bottom Hang – Short coats, shorts, skirts, pants
Floor – More Boot box and Sweater box storage
Long Hang – Dresses, Long Coat
2nd Shelf on Long Hang – More Sweater Storage
Brown box on the floor in the corner has more sweater storage. I think I need to purge my sweaters. It looks like I’ve got too many and not enough cold days to wear them on.
The lids of the hat boxes and shoe boxes.
And look what I found (among many other things)…
Silk camis
Silk shirts
I forgot I had these. I was wondering where they went.
I have yet to add my purse hanger on the wall along with my flip-flop hanger. I found this at The Container Store. It hangs on the wall and hold up to 6 pairs of flip-flops or sandals. I love that store!
Now I can shop my closet and stop buying another white shirt or black heels or silk shirts and camis.
As always, thanks for reading.

    Anonymous – I found them at Ross, TJ Maxx and Marshall's. They are also at Michael's/Hobby Lobby or any other arts & crafts store. They are called photo/shoe box.
