Thank you to the Container Store for sponsoring this post. All opinions remain my own.
Let me back up for a second, if you’ve been following my blog for awhile, then you know my lack of closet space in our home has been a big issue. I can’t complain about the size of my master closet, but that’s also because Eric built it for me. After opening up some walls, re-configuring our master bedroom, and turning what we think was a previous bathroom into my now closet, I can finally say this space feels like a dream.
In addition to utilizing all of the amazing organizational resources The Container Store offers, I also added in a second clothes rod, shelves, a bench, and found ways to properly utilize what was really just dead space before. I also got a large mirror and did a little DIY project to my jewelry box, and had my sister paint me this awesome picture that hangs above it. I loved the chandelier that I had in there and felt that it gave it a shabby chic feel, but realistically, it was too big for the space and hung really low. We decided to switch it out for a fixture that was better suited for the space and I love it just as much. You know what I also love? My new rug that compliments everything and pulls the room together.
I was able to maximize this space far beyond what I thought was possible. Before, I used to have my sweaters and dress pants just folded on some of those smaller shelves. My shoes were pilled up and stacked on top of each other because I could only fit four pairs across on one shelf. My top shelf had purses randomly tossed up there, next to my hats, and I even found a few pair of shoes up there as well. Now, my lovely hat boxes are the perfect spot for my hats and save me a lot of shelf space. I also love these purse bins that have freed up so much space for me and I love how organized they are now.
I will say that having things organized really changes the way I view things. We’re hoping to tackle even more projects and find ways to make things more functional. It makes life so much easier when there is a place for your things and you actually know where to find them. Dare I even say this might help me be more motivated to get my laundry skills in order. Maybe I’m getting ahead of my self here, but we’re working on baby steps.
