Linen Closet Makeover

I realize when you call something a makeover it means you should have before and after pictures… And I don’t 😦

But I did give the linen closet a little makeover. [I took out a lot of my couponing stockpiled items and used my dollar store basket to categorize them before putting them under the guest bathroom sink, I talked about that in my other post: dollar store deals. ]

This opened up the space I had available in my linen closet which meant I could put my serve-ware into the closet instead of on the guest dresser! (See the top shelf slightly pictured)


I found these nice metal/wire baskets at TJ Maxx and used them for my medicine cabinet; holding my mouthwash & conditioners; and all the candles & lotions & room scents. I also used a basket to hold various cleaning products, pillowcases, and sheets.

I want to find a smaller basket to put the wash cloths and maybe a smaller one for the meds?Β I’m lacking in my first aid supplies so the basket looks empty… Maybe I just need to get more meds just in case…

Remember those black hang tags from target? Β I used some white scrapbook letter stickers and created some name tags for the linens. This way guests can know which are the bath towels vs the pool towels, and where to find the blankets,sheets and pillowcases.

D says I should have put the hang tags below the item like you find at the store for the price, but I like keeping the tag closer to eye level. What do you think?

    I like it the way you have it. I sometimes have to go to the top of the shelves to be sure what item it is for, since I have found no tag on occasion and so have to figure it out. Isn’t it lovely to open a closet and find things right away, it is so much easier to keep things tidy too. Well done my girl, keep up the good work. Cannot wait to see what your closet will look like.

    Love
