one of the most irritating undone projects has been our coat closet. we have real winter here, & for this southern girl, not being able to find your other glove [or either of them!] is tantamount to not being able to find your pants.
when you see this mess, you can easily imagine the chaos that ensues each time i want to leave the house:
[coat closet: before]
we had gotten into the terrible habit of just shoving outerwear into the closet anywhere it would fit to still get the door closed. the tub at the bottom became a magnet for items that don't even belong in the coat closet.
i went to target & bought an over-the-door shoe organizer, & i scavenged two baskets & some hanging hooks from our basement. this project literally took about 15 minutes!
[coat closet: after]
[coats & scarves]
[my rainbow of coats!]
[a *mostly* clear floor]
[a place for everything...]
[...& everything in its place!]
i'd like to spruce it up more, by painting the inside walls a fun color & by adding tags to the baskets. but for now, at least it's functional!
