My oldest daughter’s closet was kind of a hot mess.
Well, more than kind of. It WAS a hot mess. It started out great, but as her clothes got bigger (and she did, too), her needs began to change. I decided her closet needed a bit of an upgrade. Since her boxes and organizer shelf were still in great shape, it didn’t need to be a big upgrade.
The first thing I did was order her some new hangers. Now that she is older, her clothes were falling off the child sized plastic hangers. I’d flip through her closet and the clothes would slide right off.
I purchased a pack of fifty velvet hangers from Walmart.com, and also a ten-pack of the same hangers with pants clips for her jeans and skirts. For fun (and to make them match her boxes), I ordered them in hot pink.
Now that her clothes were no longer falling off the hangers, and her hangers were all the same size and width, her closet already looked tons better.
I also removed anything that did not fit, or was out of season to give her more space. Afterward, I began to think about what she needed to store in her closet. She is a little fashionista, so there are plenty of scarves, hats and purses that needed a home.
She also doesn’t wear pantyhose or tights that often anymore, so we really didn’t need two baskets for those.
When I finished purging things, I put all like items together, and updated her basket labels. When I finished, I had this:
A closet that meets her needs and is pretty to look at as well.
Have a wonderful weekend!
