Closet Makeover — keeping it real

13 Jan

This is what I was working on this weekend. And yes, I know it really needed it! I wasn’t going to show you the “before” picture because it is horrifyingly messy — but I am going to keep it real. There are so many blogs with great organizing tips and ways to be efficient, they really inspired me!

So here it is. I was so busy over Christmas that I just threw stuff in there and figured that I would deal with it later.

Now after seeing that you should feel really good about your closet. It couldn’t possibly look worse!

I ended up filling 8 bags of clothes/shoes to donate. And three bags of clothes that I hope to refashion this year! And you know what, it was actually freeing to declutter and it was fun to organize the closet!!!
I bought some pop-up bins in the Dollar Section at Target.
Then I made some chalkboard labels for the bins. And decoupaged some clothespins to hold them onto the bins…
I sorted all of my t-shirts into color, folded them up and put them in their own bins. 
Now I can figure out where everything is — which is great!

 And I made a little burlap magnet board with Ikea magnetic holders for my jewelry.

 One of my commenters suggested getting nice hangers for a more uniform look. I just remembered that Target had matching blue velvety ones in the Dollar Section that match! I think I am going to go see they have any more tomorrow!!!

And now that I’m (almost) done with the black and white closet, I’m working on a little redo of my master bedroom. What project have you been working on??

Have a great day 🙂
keeping it real update: just locked my keys in the car and husband is out of town. I guess I have to call the locksmith… Locksmith came, $60 later….
