Closet Shelves and Cubbies = Organization!

I have a "new" master bedroom closet.

Okay... so it's not really new,
but it sure feels like it.


First of all, Hubby painted the walls a semi-gloss vanilla. Sounds boring... but I just wanted it bright and neutral.


It had been painted a FLAT beige/taupe that absorbed all the light. The cheap light fixture, and it's placement, only adds to the problem.

Poor Hubby thought he was only painting. I didn't want to ask for too much all at once.

Ha... he should know better by now... 'cause then I asked him to remove two sections of the clothes rods.

I know this sounds crazy, but he trusts me :)

But it didn't stop there! I convinced him that I needed shoe shelves... he tried to convinced me that I needed fewer shoes. 

Marriage is full of compromises.

So... while he was making shoe shelves, I was trying to downsize my shoe "collection".  Shhh... I just had to keep some most of them. You will see where they are in just a minute.

My purses are in these bins.
Two or three in each one.

I used to match my shoes to my purses... something that  no one does much anymore.

Yes, I did get rid of some of those too :(

Miscellaneous things are in
the bins in the top shelf.

Moving from left to right,
to the double clothes rod.

Wondering where those extra shoes are?
Why in that brand new trunk that
I picked up at HomeGoods.

I replaced this plastic bin.

With this decorative trunk. 

I am worried that the trunk is too "busy".
What do you think?

Then... moving to the right a little more...
is another bunch of cubbies and bins.

I love organization!
Makes life so much easier...
don't you think?

My socks are sorted by black, white and navy. I also have belts, scarves, and hats in the other bins. Costume jewelry and reading/sunglasses are in the plastic drawer bins.

Of course they are sorted by sub type and also placed in little tiny zip top bags. It makes finding a pair of earrings so easy.

I  will show you the last wall next week...
after I get dresser painted.

Edit: Go here to see next week's post.

Oh... you might be asking where 
are Hubby's clothes.

Well... they are in his closet,
of course!


Thanks for stopping by.

I haven't had much time to work on my blog...
but I have been reading yours. 

I know that all of you are busy too, but try to look at as many of this weeks participants as you can.

Let them know when you stop by...
that make us all feel good :)

Wow what a great job and a wonderfully organized closet.

OMGosh, about NICE ! This is a dream closet!! I could never, EVER be that organized but I so wish I could. It is just beautiful.

Glad you got your blog backed up. Blogger says we never have to worry...that they keep our blogs on THEIR hard drives....but...I am SO mistrusting, I guess.

My husband doesn't want to get more storage stuff because he thinks I'll then get more stuff to store! LOL. I think he's got the problem confused with the solution.

Anyways, thanks so much for stopping by Texifornia and best wishes for a smooth move back to S. Ca.

I went ahead and added a link to your blog in my sidebar.

Wow. I love it. Wish I could do that. I think the trunk is much better than the plastic. I love all your bins. Great job.

I wish I had those shelfs for my shoes. You can see them all at once, making choosing a pair much eaiser. At first glance I thought the cupcakes pictures on your header were real, and then I thought, no fake, and then I said , no real. Then as I paged down I read you make fake food. You had me fooled for sure. They are really cute.
