Once I got home I dug right into clearing out the closet, but not before taking a few before pictures.
See what I mean?
On the plus side, the closet was completely empty, but now the rest of the room looked like a train wreck. This is the part of organizing that I dread. No matter what you do it always seems to get worse before it gets better. This is the time that I get annoyed at the mess I made and want to just walk away. I knew that wasn't an option, so I pulled up my big girl pants and got to work. Here's a preview of how the closet's coming together so far.
Here's a side by side for you.
I made a ton of progress in this room and have been busy organizing all my craft supplies. It still has a way to go, but it's slowly turning into my dream craft closet. I'll be back on Friday to share all the details on the free file cabinet that I saved from the dumpster.
