Closet Design

A lovely lady asked me to help her design her dream closet. So we went and sat in her new closet and dreamed up exciting ways to make her closet the best ever.

 

We had a great time, and I hope to work with her in the future to customize her new house.

 

Organizing Kid Projects

If your kids are anything like mine, they go through stages of what they are really into. Right now my kids are into three things: origami, coloring cards for Christmas, and homework. Well they probably don’t want to be “into” homework but they have to be. So rather than putting all of those supplies back in the office every day, and also to respect my husband’s space as he works in the office, we are making little stations for those activities in the living room, where the kids hang out.

 

I have been a little puzzled as to how to implement this properly over the last few weeks, because each project takes up so much space. Finally I looked at the entertainment cabinet, which is not really full at all, and realized that I could use the space where all of our millions of movies and CDs would be if we had millions. There’s big shelves under there, it’s easily accessible to the kids, and there are doors so the clutter can hide.

 

So this morning I will be rearranging the movies and CDs to make room for my kids’ projects, and hopefully all of us will win in this situation.

Sonya’s Linen Closet

Sonya’s Linen Closet

The Client:
Sonya is a young lady without much time. She needed someone to come help her sort through her cosmetics and toiletries to decide what to keep and what to donate or toss. Her linen closet had a lot of boxes and beginnings to organization, but there were no labels and there was too much stuff.

Before: Sonya's closet needs attention.

After: The best gift is empty space.

The Solution:
We took everything out and tossed old and expired items. We donated unused and unwanted things, and put everything else back in a peaceful and organized manner. We also had a great time talking about hairstyling and pets!

Time: 1.5 hours

 

Mimi’s Closet

The saddest part about losing weight is that you have to go buy new clothes. The best part about losing weight is that you’re skinnier! And for most of us, that’s a good thing! Our client Mimi is in the process of losing weight. She therefore knew she had some clothes she could give away, so before I got to her house she sorted and got rid of everything she didn’t want. This left ample space for us to organize and arrange the things she did want to keep. We brainstormed a way to store her shoes, a way to make the closet more accessible, and a way to store the clothes that weren’t hanging clothes. It was a lot of fun and in just two hours we changed the look of the closet completely.

Before: There are shelves hiding that can't be accessed very well...

After: Lo and behold! The shelves have breathing room and are easy to get into!

We are excited for Mimi to reach her weight loss goal and fill up her super-organized closet with some beautiful new things!

Time elapsed: two hours
