And here's a little breakdown of how I organized most of our stuff:
So there you have it! I didn't bother going as far as to paint the walls and all the shelves, although that would have made quite the impact. Since this isn't a permanent home for us, I am picky about what upgrades I feel like investing in. We already put a lot into this apartment after painting the landing and kitchen, ripping up carpeting, and laying tiles in the kitchen and bathroom- all of which you can check out in our house tour. So overall I am pleased with this storage closet organization project and so relieved that I finally went through every nook and cranny and threw out/donated tons of stuff. Anyone else do any organization lately?
