State of the World

... the world being my closet...

the other night, it was sooo hot in our master bedroom, I thought I'd go sleep in the guest room (where its inexplicitedly 10 degrees cooler...) then I remember, its my closet dumping ground....

all that's left at the moment....

fresh paint, fresh glossy trim, and new light bulbs (make the biggest difference!)

This kills me... kills.

progress has been made... can't wait for the finished result! 

Progress Report
- Remove clothes/stuff
- Dissemble storage shelving units
- Paint closet same color as bathroom (SW Argos, it's a shade darker than our bedroom SW Passive, but you can barely tell and we have a ton left over...)
- Plan new layout for shelving
- Acquire new shelving units as necessary (bar, shoe shelves, and ledge)
- Sand, Prime, and Paint laminate shelving to match bathroom vanity (this is optional... not sure if I care enough for the effort)
- Ditch the white shelving units that have been following me around since sophomore year in college... (to the garage they go!)
- Rehang clothes
- Refold clothes, add bins
- Organize shoes and other fold-able clothes (hoodies, jeans, sweats)
- Hooks for scarves and belts
- Hang tie rack for husband (his only request)
- Jewelry storage project
- Donate clothes that aren't being put back
- New light fixture/Switch to energy efficient day light bulbs
- Add a mirror (?)
- Ta Da! Dunzo
* current stage


  1. I NEED to know where you got your bedding! I love it!

  2. Can't wait to see the finished product! I'm also obsessed with organizing, so I'm excited to see how you end up doing it all. I hope you're going to do a step-by-step on the jewelry storage project! I desperately need a new way to store my jewelry!

  3. Maria - The bedding is Tommy Hilfiger, but I got it 5 years ago when I graduated from college. I'm still obsessed with it.... I'll see if I can find the 'name' of it...

    klynne - didn't make as much progress as I wanted to today... the piles of clothing are killing me!

  4. Can't wait to see the finished product! I need some closet ideas myself so I can't wait to see how you put it all together.

  5. Awesome progress girl, can't wait to see the finished project.
