10 Steps to A Clean & Organized Closet

I‘m still in my gathering ideas, planning and psyching myself up phase of tackling my closet makeover. That’s the phase I get in right before I actually dive in to get the job done.

Which mostly means … I’m on Pinterest.

I’m now totally convinced my closet needs to be way more charming. WAY more charming than it is. When I picture redoing my closet, things pop into my head like beautiful French armoires in a walk in closet that is actually a small room with romantic wallpaper, pretty light fixtures, furniture and clothes on racks like a boutique.

That’s what is in my mind.

But what’s currently in my closet are rubbery wire shelves, puke brown carpet and icky dry flesh-colored a.k.a swine colored walls. Yeow. That’s not the least bit inspiring to wake up to.

I’ve had that boutique closet dream for a long time. I actually got started on one before we moved here, but then we had to move before it all came together. So, it’s been lingering in my mind for quite a few years.

I want this room in my house.

Sigh, I die. The attention to detail, the colors, the wallpaper (!), the cottage charm. I adore it all.
