"New" Closet


Speechless...and you probably are too if you've seen my closet in the last five years, or ever! An Angel was sent to me, in the form of Chelsea L. to get my house in order, and add some fun things too. But, I guess before the fun stuff, we've got to see what we are working with, and at our house it is excess clothing, and lots of stuff to D.I. (the Goodwill around here). It was great to have Chelsea to guide me and assist me in throwing shoes, ripped jeans, and other items I had been carrying around for years (like up to 17 years!). I am usually good at D.I.ing but there were just some things I didn't part with (until now). Thank you Chelsea! Now onto finishing the kids' closets, and tackling my downstairs "hidden" closet.

For the record, my room is clean. So, the excess stuff really is put away, thrown away, or given away!

This just in...the boys' closet. And I can't wait to show you when Chelsea finishes with the boys' room design. More to come...

she was almost as excited as you. Organization is one of her favorite things.

it takes a real friend to tell you to get rid of 4 pairs of 200 dollar jeans.

I can tell that Chelsea is a woman after my own heart. Declutter and organize! Glad you 'hired' her to help you out. The closet looks great!
