tackling the closet

Updated to add: This post is part of The Masked Mommy's Closet Pow Wow! Head on over for more inspirational closet makeovers.







You know how sometimes little projects turn into BIG projects without intending (or even hoping) for that to happen? That is what came of my Tackle it Tuesday project. I was hoping to do a quick clean up/organizing session of the master bedroom closet since it has become our "catch all" for quite awhile now, but once I got started, my nit-picky and perfectionist ways suddenly overwhelmed me and before I knew it I had spent the whole morning going through things with a fine toothed comb (may I add: while my sweet, angelic children made a mess of the rest of the bedroom). Why, you ask would I put so much time into an area where the only ones who will see it are me, my husband, and my kids? In a nutshell. That's just me. Orderly. When I want to be. And today, I wanted to be.

Brace yourself...I'm a big fan of before and after pics! It's something about seeing my hard work pay off.

Here is the little project my daughter was working on while I was organizing the closet. She took all of her daddy's work shirts and laid them out on the floor. I think she was trying to sort through them for me to see which ones need to go!

These are the little goodies I found during my organizing session.

Christmas hidden away in the closet

you would think I would notice I had this many frames hanging out in the nooks and crannies in the closet...I'll have to add this to my project list: find these frames a home!

Thanks for stopping by to see the chaos I have mastered (or should I say created?)

Hey, isn't it funny how frames multiply in the closet? Nice work, very motivating!

Great job! It's so nice to give closets a makeover because it seems like they get out of control so fast. Plus, they tend to be neglected because when people come over you can just close the door (at least that's why my closets get neglected...)
