Today is Works for me Wednesday, Backwards Edition, at the WE ARE THAT FAMILY BLOG. This means that you ask for help from blog readers.
My question is: Do you have ideas for adding pretty and feminine touches to my side of the closet? I'm brainstorming ideas using fabric, flowers, pictures, a lamp, and other things like that. Have you used any of these things in your closet?
I continued to work in my closet last night. You really can get a lot accomplished if you work on something for short periods of time each day!
But you have to stick to it! I really didn't want to do this the past two nights, but figured I could do anything for a few minutes (Thanks Emilie Barnes and Flylady!). I made myself get started and once I got started, it was enjoyable.
I am working my way around the closet, straightening and purging as I go. I removed my heavier winter clothing, such as sweaters and wool jackets. These are stored in another closet in the house that has room for my off season clothing. I left my transitional clothes that can be worn in our North Carolina roller coaster spring weather. I have two large piles for donating to the thrift store.
I am planning some pretty, feminine touches to this closet, but for now here are some utilitarian items. I am trying to use as many things as I can that I already have on hand. As much as I would love to go shopping for closet organizers, they are expensive!
A three drawer plastic cart that holds small items such as socks and undergarments.
A wooden crate for storing pocketbooks and other bags.
Two over the door plastic heavy duty hooks for storing recycled gift bags and my few dressy or long items of clothing. This is where my wedding dress and the dress I wore to my daughter's wedding hang.
I'd appreciate any ideas you have for making this space more feminine!
