I hope you had a great weekend and perhaps even got a day off for Presidents Day. I'm embarrassed to say that we binge-watched every episode of the second season of House of Cards. If it was an Olympic event, I would be a gold medalist. But seriously, releasing all of the episodes, at the same time, in the dead of winter, when it's cold and snowy outside? I had no choice.
Back to more productive items - organizing my daughter's closet. Click here for a refresh on the progress I've made in her bedroom. Like many 8 year-old girls, she has a lot of stuff. Little stuff. Trinkets and treasures, earrings, rubber band bracelets, arts and crafts - you name it. Her room is on the small side, so I need to maximize and utilize the space in her closet.
I don't have a true "before" photo of her closet, but imagine this space stuffed with toys and clothes, and you get the picture. It's deep and has great built-in storage, but the downside is that she's too little to reach the top hanging rack of clothes, so that's kind of wasted space.
The walls were just ... nasty.
Then, I attached a wood frame to the back.
Then I painted it the same color as her walls, to make it a little more fun.
Lots of space to hang her goodies, with room to spare.
The bottom bin houses her larger bags and backpacks (apparently, a girl needs to change those out on a regular basis).
She has taken to using this basket for her dirty clothes. As long as they're contained and not on the floor - I'm good with that.
