Seems like everyone is busy cleaning, purging and organizing. I have been cleaning and it seems like it is endless. I have no idea why everything seems so dirty. With all the cleaning I have been purging a little too. Closets are a favorite place to start and usually a place that needs the most purging and organizing.
Last year I did a complete makeover of my Master Closet for the One Room Challenge. It has been so nice to have a really organized space to use everyday and so easy to keep it that way.
If you're new here you may have missed that post, or if you saw it there are still some great tips and ideas to use if you are working on your closet.
Here are a few highlights.
No fancy built-in systems, just an average closet with builder grade shelf and hanging rods, but you can make it really functional and pretty with a little bit of creativity and a lot of purging and organizing.
This is what I started with.
The closet has double rods on two walls and a single rod on the third wall. We have a tiny linen closet, so I had a ton of quilts and blankets stacked to the ceiling on the one shelf above the single rod wall.
I made a fabric shade so you can't see all the quilts, but things are easy to get to. Then used the bottom shelf to display some pretty things. I love my handbags, so it's nice to see them on display so I can enjoy them and reach them. I added another wire shelf that I spray painted gold on the small section of wall to hold even more handbags.
We had some wire shelves to hold our underwear, and they really didn't look very pretty, but they were super functional and worked beautifully for us.
This made room for a fun primping spot and a bookcase to hold shoes.

This is one of the best things I ever did for myself. Every day it gives me a smile to walk in here, and getting dressed is so much easier and a lot more fun.
Months later it's still organized and pretty. That is what I call a success.
