When the door opens, there’s nothing that spectacular though it is cedar-lined, which is nice. There are no expensive custom built closet organizers. In fact, not even inexpensive closet organizers.
So, what brings that feeling of joy that’s hard to explain?
Color coordinated bins (the one thing we had to purchase at $5 each) to hold Brian’s things that used to be thrown haphazardly on the shelf.
A contact-paper covered shoe box.
The lining on the shoe shelves. It’s a pink and rose wallpaper I bought years ago on clearance that is too frou-frou (for me anyway) to use in the main living areas, but that I loved and held on to, hoping I’d find someplace to use it.
This is perfect. Oh, and after applying the wallpaper to the shelves I coated them with floor polyurethane to keep the shoes from tearing at the paper. It’s held up well.
But the thing that was hardest to do is the thing that I love the most: I hung pictures in the closet. This was hard for me because it seemed so, well…crazy. But I love these pictures and didn’t have a place for them anywhere else in this house, so they sat in storage.
Much better to be stored here where I can see them every day. I use the metal box to hold clutches and small items that I don’t use that often.
So tell me, is this crazy? Do you put beauty in places just for you? Would you like to?
