Happy Monday friends! I spend a chunk of time last week organizing my closet and redoing the built-in dresser. It was originally painted Sherwin Williams Divine White (flat) which resulted in lots of scuff marks that were impossible to clean, so I repainted it Sherwin Williams Venus Pink (high gloss). The island and shoe shelves are also now that shade of pale pink. I moved my handbags and travel totes to the shelves above the dresser so I can see them more easily (they were hidden behind the door before).
To help the purses keep their shape, I have them stuffed with thick tissue or small pillows I’m not using. I spray painted the silver drawer pulls gold and added decorative paper to the sides with adhesive spray.
I rearranged the contents inside the drawers too. I used to have jewelry in the top drawer and makeup on the dresser top, but I donated the pieces I never wore and moved the makeup into the first drawer, except for the brushes, that I like to keep upright in a cup.
With the top of the dresser clear, I had room to style it up with accessories and girlie things.
The nameplate bracelet is traditional Hawaiian jewelry that I got from my Grandma when I was young and she lived in Hawaii. I still cherish it and wear it all the time.
I adore this old photo of my parents from over 30 years ago (wow!), so I decided to tape it to the jewelry box where I could see it everyday.
I still want to reorganize my hanging clothes and find hooks for a couple of large tote bags that didn’t fit in dresser shelves. A few more tweaks and the closet will be ready for Spring! 🙂
