Weekend Project. {Closet Revamp}


Though I certainly delight in the idea of a closet that looks like this..

I have to think realistically. I am working on a budget. And quite frankly, I do not have half the clothing or accessories pictured in the above closets. {purses... maybe ;)}
So.. as always, before beginning my project, I sought after inspiration via the net.. and I managed to find some great ideas...
I share this closet with Brad, so organization and separation is key here. I also want to include a full length mirror, and two hampers.. One for laundry, the other for dry cleaning items.

I like this DIY idea from Martha Stewart. Very simple and space saving...

Martha suggests using acid free tissue paper in organization or craft boxes to protect small wool items such as gloves and scarfs.

To protect clothing,one can use cedar planks or dried lavender.

Stuff handbags with acid free tissue paper to maintain shape and cover with a flannel bag to protect from light and dust {most come with these at the time of purchase}


And lastly, I am sure you've all heard of using a Polaroid image on the outside of shoe boxes. I however, do not have that many shoes, so I plan on arranging them neatly and stuffing the tops of boots with the tissue paper so they too will maintain their shape.

And what is a closet revamp without great smells? I personally prefer to use Dreft Laundry Spray over Febreze. It has a light baby powder scent and I adore it.

What ideas do you have for closet organization?

xx and happy weekend!

I hope it went well! I organized my closet a few weeks ago and it is already back to being a mess...maybe it is because it is so small!
