Aren’t we so happy for Friday!!! It has felt like a really long week here and I’m welcoming the bit of a break that the weekend will bring. My hubby and I decided to host a super casual Superbowl party, so I’m thinking we better get the word out to our friends and maybe start doing a little party planning:) Then, a month later, it will be time for James’ 1st birthday! I already found him a cute “birthday boy” t-shirt!
But today, I’m happy to have Emily from Decorchick feature her coat closet makeover. It seems like that space always ends up being under-utilized or is where stuff is piled high and inaccessible. I love how Emily made some simple DIY changes to make the closet more efficient and pretty!
She and I go way back and she was super helpful in getting the word out about my blog when I first started blogging. She was also my 2nd or 3rd follower, so I appreciate her so much!!
Hi HWH fans! I’m Emily from Decorchick and I am a big fan of Megan too. And I get the privilege to be a real life friend as well, so I get to drool over her home and closet in person. I sure am a lucky gal! 🙂 I am excited to be a part of Megan’s organization series, as I am on a big organization kick myself. I think most people are this time of year and I love it. It’s a new year, and a new fresh start. Since I am always trying to utilize every inch of our home, and to make sure each space has functionality, today I am going to show you how I transformed a coat closet into a cute little storage closet. Living in South Texas there really isn’t much need for a coat closet, so when I opened up our closet and found this chaos, I knew it had to change. Here is the bottom of the floor once I removed the coats. As you can see, this coat closet has turned into a junk closet. I knew it needed shelves, so I used 6 pieces of 1×2’s for the supports, and 3 pieces of particle board with a melamine finish for the shelves. Nailed the support braces up… Then I just laid my shelves on top and I was done. There was no need to nail the tops down, as they were very secure as is. And here is what the closet looks like now! Ahh, organized Heaven. The cute fabric cubes are from Home Depot and they are by Martha Stewart. The clear plastic containers on the top shelf are also from Home Depot and they were .99 a piece. I bought extra so I can continue to organize as more junk comes in. I made the labels with vinyl and chalkboard pens. This was a very easy project, so if you have a junk closet, just add some shelves and you’ll be all set and organized! 🙂 Thanks so much for having me as a guest for your organization series Megan! I really appreciate it. 🙂
