Ohhhh, the vulnerability I'm feeling right now. This is like opening up a small piece of my heart to you guys. Good thing you are all so kind, or else this would be just too much. It's not Kim Kardashian's closet, but I'd rather have a successful marriage than a successful closet any day.
Without further ado, let me explain to you the closet that's been put together (so far).
The way the bathroom is set up makes it really difficult to get a picture from the outside, so this is from the doorway looking in. I hope to eventually get all matching hangers, but for now this will have to do.
The racks are grouped into coats, blouses, t-shirts, and track suits up top...dresses, shirts, and pants on bottom.
We received two of these lovely iron key-holders as wedding gifts. One is hanging by the backdoor and one found it's home as a purse-holder in closet de Brittany.
Being the cheapskate that I am, I tried to be resourceful and use things we already had but couldn't find a place for. This little belt-holder is actually a picture stand. It sticks out from the wall far enough to hold plenty of belts, even the widest ones.Told you it was dedicated to him.
Here's a breakdown of the top shelves. The bathing suit bucket is from Dollar Tree and the aqua baskets were $5 each at Lowes. The hat box was a gift from my grandma. Thanks Nana!
This scarf-hanger, my friends, has a story. I'm sure you can tell that it's actually a towel ring, but it works perfectly at it's new position. I was in Bed Bath & Beyond recently buying some of these bad boys for our bathrooms and picked up an extra one we didn't need. In my little-kid-on-Christmas-morning like way, I ripped it out of the packaging before I even realized we didn't need it. Since it was $12 (say what? for one of these thingies?) I was determined to give it a purpose. I think it likes it's new home.
Boots, heels, and flats all rest on the shelf in between top and bottom hanging clothes.
...and a few got "booted" to the floor.
Because there wasn't enough room to neatly display all my shoes, I decided to put them out in seasons. Which, in Houston, consists of summer (11 months of the year) and winter. It doesn't have a lid because I believe shoes, being much like people, need to breathe. This bin is perfect for rotating shoes that are only good during the warm months....
This was also my first time attempting color-coordinating. It made me want to eat Skittles.
And one more look at the left side through the door. Thanks for visiting, y'all! Hope this has given you some cheap and simple ideas to organize your closet.
If you have any other suggestions or methods of organization you use, I would love to hear them!
