Closet Organize

 It stared out so innocently. I wanted to put away our fresh, clean sheets into the linen closet and it all started from there.

The kiddies were napping and I thought: 'what better way to spend my downtime than to immerse myself in a bigger cleaning project than I have time for?' I tend to bite off more than I can chew... but in this instance, its a good thing I took a bite! 

Only in my house can a cleaning project turn into something that involves stamps and labels! My inspiration? A guest closet how-to courtesy of Country Living. I mean, seriously... forget "guest" closet, I want a closet like this! 

With ideas like this tucked in the back of my brain, I set out to work. I wish I snapped before pictures of our closet, but lets just say everything was all over the place. I didn't even know what was in there; it was a total disorganized mess that beckoned some love.

At the end of the madness, our closet looks something like this. There's something about neatly folded towels and sheets that make me happy. I delved into the vanity and started labeling and organizing there as well. It could be addicting. Keep in mind, I don't have a camera crew at my house to take the best angles and provide optimum lighting, but here is the final project. 

Future Project: bathroom makeover, specifically painting the vanity from the ugly (fake) wood color to a beautiful and vibrant white. That will have to be another day when I begin biting again..

Speaks for itself

Toothbrushes and face washes are in the wooden caddy which I scored from an antique store!

Freshly washed sheets.... ahhhh...

Now I'm not afraid to open our closet anymore!
