Phase I, Closet Under the Stairs
One of our biggest space wasters was the closet under the stairs. Where I saw a giant closet, full of storage potential, the boys saw and oddly shaped closet not good for much of anything. You see, since the closet is, in fact, under the stairs, the ceiling juts down at a sharp angle about halfway into the closet. The key to a closet like this, is not to waste any space. Before you see the "Before" shots, you should know that this closet sits right across from a bathroom. Both doors open into the "hall" so it's impossible to get a good shot of the closet without taking one of the doors off the hinges (which I was so not going to do). And if I simply shut the bathroom door, I can't back up far enough to get a shot of the entire closet. So, the shots lack a little luster, but I did what I could.
Not gonna lie y'all, I'm a little embarassed. So, I pulled everything out of the closet, spread it all over the living room, and then put it back (plus some extra stuff!). And now I give you, a completely full, but much more effectively used space!
I haven't decided what to tackle next, but these are definitely on my To Organize list:
1. kitchen pantry
2. kitchen cabinets
3. bedroom closets
4. linen closet
What have you organized lately? Have any good tips?
