Sure, I've made attempts, and the little cubbies and storage cubes are signs of those attempts, but they were half hearted and not really well organized.
So, today I am tackling what needs to be done, and it is all thanks to my water heater's decision that it wanted to start leaking water. But luckily, after taking everything out, I did discover that there was no water damage in the closet, so that was a blessing in disguise.
|After clearing out everything|
The four 3 shelf, stackable shelves are remnants of my college days when I needed more space in my dorm closet. The two door cabinet and the 9 shelf cubicle are two items I purchased a little over a year ago in an attempt to organize the closet. As you can see. It didn't work.
|I have way too many clothes|
So, that is why I pulled everything out of my closet this afternoon. I needed to take inventory of what I have and do a major purge and put everything back properly and not haphazardly.
So, how do you do this? Well, funny you should ask? I didn't decide to do this overnight. I've been planning and researching how I was going to do this for awhile. I also made plans on what I needed to accomplish this, how much time and energy would be needed, and the stamina to do it. Oh, and the tools.

I spent a lot of time researching small walk-in closet ideas using Pinterest, even creating a board specifically for that topic. I found one that looked almost identical to mine and it gave me wonderful ideas on what to do next, and inspiration on how to transform a drab space into something fabulous. Almost as if it were my own little boutique. It is your space, after all. You can do whatever you want with it, even put a chandelier in it to dress it up even more! Some of the ones I viewed had done that and had even gone further with faux fur stools in corners! Oh, and don't forget the mirror!
|Time to get started|
But now that the closet is empty, it is now time to get busy and get it done right! I'm hoping that by the end of the evening there will be another blog (wow, two in one day) showing off the finished product, but that is not a promise. It is a hope, because I don't know how much energy I have in me at the moment. I just want that bed cleared off before bedtime tonight.
