I've been busy!!! (Closet makeover!)

Wednesday night the hubs and I ran to Menards to buy some shelving for the playroom closets. It came to $106 with the brackets, 6 shelves and some scotch tape. (My kids are constantly stealing my tape and using it all up, drives me insane when it's time to wrap a gift and there's no tape!) Anyways...this morning I reorganized all the toys, reorganized my closets upstairs, painted both closets with a nice limey green color I picked out of the neighbor's paint store basement and quick painted the trim white. It's 12:13 am on Friday morning and I am beat!!!! But I couldn't wait to post the dramatic difference in the closets, so without further ado, here they are!!!


This was one of the playroom closets, I could only take one picture because I think the other one was blocked by a bunch of toys.  It pretty much looked like this on the inside as well.

This is the hallway closet where we stored crafts, games and puzzles.  Usually it doesn't look like this but after Christmas presents, three birthdays, winter break with 4 kids home all day, one of them being a toddler, well you can imagine why it looks like this.

This is the shelving we were using to store the toys on.

Here it is today after a LOOONNNNGGGGGGG day of painting, purging and reorganzing!

I am hoping to get 2 or 3 more clear bins because I like when the kids can see what's inside.  I am also planning to put labels on the bins but I'm just to tired for that tonight!

The empty toy shelves...such a beautiful site.  The books on top will be going on a bookshelf which all the kids will be able to reach.  It could be a bad thing with a 20 month old running around, I'll let you know how that works for me.  I am also considering some cute ideas for books on the wall so we'll see. 

This is the hall closet where we are going to be making our "cloffice" or closet office.  Mr.A's guitar usually goes in another closet but that closet is next on the purging/reorganizing list so I thought I'd just leave it here, along with the few lonely items on top.  I also reorganized 3 closets in our bedroom today as well but I'm saving that for another post.

I'm so happy with the way the closets turned out and it only cost us $100.  The paint was free, we already had all the bins and toys!  :)  Maybe you'll be inspired to do your own little closet makeover!
Stay tuned as we give the playroom a face lift and also get to work on the office closet or "cloffice."

I linked up at the following places....



  1. Grant saw the picture of all your organized toys and immediately said,"Can I go and play with them?" =) Its amazing how much more fun toys are when they are organized and in sets. I really need to get some more organizing done around here. We still have some stuff packed in boxes. Anyway, thanks for the inspiration and enjoy your new space! =)

  2. Oh, I love an organized space. It's such a nice calm feeling. You did a great job of purging...It's nice to get rid of things that you no longer use or need. Great job!

  3. Wow...you really worked hard! What a great job! Keep encouraging your little ones to help clean up and keep it looking great! It's hard, I know but when they get bigger it is so much easier! You're doing great! If you ever want more organization inspiration, come on over and check me out! I have a SIL who loves cooking and I'm going to share your blog with her too!
