Closet Organization

One of the first things I did after we moved in was hang all my clothes in the closet. After that, the closet didn't get much attention. I just tossed my things in there, sometimes putting them in a logical place, but not usually. Every time I would walk in, I would tell myself I needed to work on cleaning and organizing it. I finally got around to it this afternoon!

This is how my closet typically looks....


One reason I've hesitated on getting it organized is that I was trying to come up with a solution to display/store my jewelry. I have a small jewelry box on my dresser for my nicer stuff, but I have a TON of necklaces! I've been browsing around Pinterest and came up with a few ideas.

I decided the last idea would be the best use of the space I have and hold the most necklaces. I bought the towel rod and shower curtain hooks at Wal-mart. I started hanging the towel rod on Tuesday night, but didn't get very far. I was determined to do it myself. I took out the instructions (which were clearly for a man because they were just pictures and no words), marked the spot for screws on the wall, and went to find the drill. The drill didn't have a bit in it and there's no telling where I could find them in our garage. So, I got frustrated and stopped.

I am happy to say that I completed this project by myself today! I found a different drill and went to work. Once I had it installed, I stood back to admire my work. It was very much a "I-am-woman-hear-me-roar"moment.

Here's how my closet looks now!
