Create a closet where one doesn’t exist
One of the best parts of this blog for me are the awesome readers that enable my “habit”. The emails and pictures I receive displaying all sorts of sweet organizing bliss, causing me to drool all over my keyboard, make me so happy that while I’m moping up my drool I’m also giggling incessantly. It’s a little embarrassing but I don’t care. I’m a nerd, it’s what I do. Drool and giggle and not always in that order.
But once you see these pictures I think you’ll understand. You may also do the drool, giggle, giggle, drool routine because seriously it’s basket heaven. This blog reader, who just started a blog of her own called On The Fly, told me that she lives in an old house with no closets. Her four kids share a room. Four kids in one room is a tough organizational challenge in itself, never mind in a room with no closet.
So what did she do, she created a closet where a closet ceased to exist. It’s stunning and functional and well so darn clever I just had to ask her if I could share the photos with all of you. Are you ready for this?
and then this
What a great idea! These closet organizers are designed for closets but who says they need to be in a closet. They aren’t expensive and sold in most department stores. They also are totally adjustable which comes in handy when dealing with sloped roofs like that. I love that she’s color coded the bins for each child and has a bin for each day of the week to organize the outfits.
Are you lacking in closet space? This might be the solution for you and if you aren’t well then perhaps you want to just continue right on drooling and giggling along with me as you stare at the pictures for an hour or so a couple of more minutes :)
