the BLACK hole

Challenge #8 Coat Closet Organization
This is how my coat closet currently looks...


hmmm... this does not look good. You'd think I was a total slob and I am NOT utilizing this space.
Lets take a closer look...




from the top it doesn't look that bad...



okay maybe the middle of it looks a little bad...



nope it's bad



It's like a black hole. You throw things in there and they disappear, like my favorite red slip on shoes

Don't worry I cleared everything out...

NO PICTURE BECAUSE I FORGOT TO TAKE ONE

and then I put it all back in!



and more (the perfect spot for my dyson). Here's the run down...


I went to Ikea and bought these green containers for 6.oo each for my linen closet. I didn't realize that two came per wrapped package. Score! 2 boxes for 6.oo.  I couldn't use them all in my linen closet so I used them in my coat closet. I put my Christmas stuff in them. The other boxes are Christmas things too.

I had this basket and I put scarfs, hats and gloves in it. It will NEVER look like this again.



There are hooks all around the inside of the closet and I used them to hang keys...



yes skeleton keys because every door in my house has a skeleton key except for the front door (that's a whole other story). Back to the hooks...



perfect for hats, on his side of the closet...





and on her side...





I know I have more stuff and I had to put some of it on his side but you know what they say "what's mine is mine and what's his is MINE :)

p.s still looking for my red slip on shoe
