3 In the Bag

>> Thursday, January 27, 2011

I could carry on for days about all that I love about this house-o-mine, but one tidbit I’m especially fond of is my closet. As a lifetime resident of older homes, I can appreciate good closet space when I see it and I consider myself one lucky girl to have this space all to myself.

Allow me to elaborate.

Double racks that enable me to hang on to certain clothing items long past their fashionable expiration date…

Shoe rack for, well, shoes…and more shoes…

…and most importantly, this unidentifiable-contraption-turned-jewelry-rack left behind by the previous owner…

While all is fabulous, there is one tiny little detail that’s been haunting me ever since I moved in…this hot mess of a top shelf…

2.5 feet of completely wasted space. Time to nip this one in the bud. After a quick trip to Bed, Bath & Beyond and a solid half hour of attempting to free a few stainless hooks from their packaging, I was ready to organize…

…and organize I did.

So. Much. Better…and should my 5’9 wingspan fail me while attempting to retrieve a handbag, I know just where to find a stiletto or two to give me a boost.

Wow---that's just perfect. I think you should be available to hire for in-home consults. :)
