Right off the bat I knew I wanted to update the storage bins that I had been using for the past 4 years. Rather than getting rid of the existing bins- they became my winter bins, which are stored away. Gotta move money around so you can purchase the import things! My vision for the new storage bins was to combine functionality and character- and out with the set of matching bins. So, off we went to a few my favorite vintage shops in town…we had such a fun day of it! Antique shops are filled to the brim with treasures good and bad…..so you have to look for the potentials up high on shelves and low on chairs.
*Put things right where you can see them! If you don’t see it, you most likely wont wear it. Create a pretty / happy visual experience in your closet that leaves you wanting to leave the doors open!
*Hang, hang, hang! As many things as possible (even basic tanks / tees)! It will keep them far more organized then any dresser drawer ever will AND you will be able to have a visual of them which will greatly increase the chance of wearing that item!
*The only exception to this rule is sweaters. Save a shelf or drawer to keep the shape of your lovely cozy sweaters intact!
*Think of the top shelf in your closet as a DISPLAY rather then storage. It will turn out much prettier! A favorite use for the top shelf of a closet is boots and heels. Line them up and create a boutique like shoe shelf that’s fun to look at.
*Add some SPARKLE or COLOR! Often, the smallest color update is just what you need to make a big impact! *Turn your closet into a space that makes you SMILE! Just think if you started your day with an organized & STYLED closet! *Make it you. Our closets truly are an extension of ourselves.
** Kelli’s closet turned out to be totally her. Its exactly what we were going for. It reflects her spunky personality, awesome western-boho style and her adventurous spirt in life!
