Coat Closet Makeover

SAVE SPACE. ORGANIZE.

The coat closet is an area that has been untouched since we moved in.  Right after we put in our wood floors I got a wild hair to give it a quick makeover.  I think it was because most of the shoes were out of the closet and I didn’t want to put them all back in a big pile on the nice new wood floor!

Here’s what I did for a somewhat quick closet makeover:

1. I painted stripes on the walls to make it interesting and fun. Why not?

Use painter's tape to mark off lines

2. I installed shelving on the bottom half to hold the kids’ shoes.

3. I changed all the hangers to white hangers so it looks more clean and uniform.

4. I found baskets to store the blankets and stuff in on the top shelf.
