If you didn’t see my What’s Behind the Door? post that included the first step of this process, you missed this. I was a little overwhelmed with the amount of stuff that had been crammed into this closet over the last ten years, but I was determined to change it.
With the television relocated to a guest room, the cabinet gave me lots of space for storage. It makes a great spot to keep my deco mesh, some candles and some of my smaller jars.
Paint supplies are in baskets on the top shelf.
I was determined to find an easy solution for storing ribbon. I used a wooden dowel and slipped rolls of ribbon onto it. It’s held in place on the closet rack using rubber bands on each end. To remove or add rolls, I’ll have to undo one of the rubber bands, so it’s not the best solution, but it works for me.
A little lace never hurts! These hold various pins and rubber bands. The drawer storage with each drawer labeled is a convenient way to have quick access to items I use frequently.
In one of the boxes that was previously pushed to the back of the closet, I found this stacking storage tray that I saved from my teaching days. It’s perfect for holding all kinds of paper, burlap sheets and photo paper. I guess hanging onto some things is a good idea!
