In the midst of my holiday preparations.....I've decided I'm going to tackle a redo of my closet. I started my closet two years ago...and never really finished it. But it is one of those projects that has stayed in the back of my mind for the last year...and I've finally hit the wall and decided I'm going to get it finished. I just can't tolerate the disorganization any more.
I'm not normally a messy person and my house is very organized and neat - except my closet. I travel quite a bit so what ends up happening is I come home from one trip...and don't always unpack before I leave on the next trip. So the unpacked bags build up and then I can't find anything. And every weekend, I swear I'm going to get it all cleaned up and I never do. For some reason, I keep on procrastinating...I think it's because its so overwhelming in there...I just can't deal with it.
So anyway - I figured I'd start with a complete reorganization, decluttering and downsizing of the area...before I begin the real decorating work. I spent five hours in there over the weekend and I'm only about a third of the way done. I took some before photographs halfway through the ripping apart of the area...it normally doesn't look this bad...close but not all the stuff on the floor. You'll definitely be able to see why I have avoided taking this on.
But first, here are my inspiration photographs.....
And here are the very embarrassing photographs I took in the midst of the reorganization...Yes, I made it messier re-working things, but it was still bad. Now you can see why when my husband comes in my closet area he just shrugs his head and walks away.
|It seems like more I try to pull it apart to organize it|
the worse it gets. It's like the remnants of a yard sale in there.
I've been spending some time thinking about what I want and have finally come up with a color scheme that I'm pretty sure I'll go with. Before I get started, there are a few things I'm still deliberating over and would love to hear some opinions on what you think. I'll be posting my ideas later this week...along with a few photos of how much better the area already looks.
Hope your having a great week....
