Closet Cleanup October 31, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — frombeantosprout @ 3:19 pm

We finally finalized the closest remodeling (well if you can call adding a few shelves remodeling). I’m pretty happy with the results and the lack of clutter.

Before:

See the lack of paint inside the closet. We never painted the inside of it since we were exhausted from having painted the entire house when we first moved in.

 

Shoe mass grave

 

More shoes

 

Henry acting as foreman while Chris removed the old closest system. Notice the tons of coats piled on the sofa.

 

After:

 

Down to four coats each taking up half the closet. We also painted the inside of the closet.

 

Outerwear storage in the upper part of the closet. With one shelf specifically for Henry.

 

New shoe storage system taking the other half of the closet

 

We even found one of Henry's old baby hats that still fits!

 

Speaking of stuff we found, there are two additional jackets in our closet that we have no idea who they belong to. So if you’re missing a brown medium Columbia jacket or an XXL Greyish white Gap shell type jacket, look no further, we have them.

    Looks great! We are “nesting” right now. Well, we’ve been nesting in spurts for the last 3 months; Brad wants to know when it’s going to end. We have so much stuff and I hate to get rid of anything!

    Hope you will find who those coats belong to.
