This weekend I decided it was time to tackle the linen closet.
Here is our linen closet:
and I knew that I was organized but not pretty. So I decided this was my next project.
I made a list of what this closet had that I wanted.
1. Paint, I love the blue back drop.
2. A shelf for each room.
3. Nicely folded sheets
5. Extra space for over flow.
So I emptied the closet, sorted and purged. The usual organizing 101 steps :)
|Jack painted the inside of the closet. Someone had to make dinner ;)|
I am loving the blue!!!!! It is so bright and cheery, I enjoyed putting the linens back in :)
Here is the after, isn't she lovely.
In a perfect world all my sheets and towels would be white but this is the real world, and most of our sheets were gifts :)
So back to my list:
Paint, I love the blue back drop.
A shelf for each room. Starting at the top shelf: Guest sheets, table linens, towels, our room, kids rooms, extra space. YAY!
icely folded sheets
4. Labels - I have to find or make some. :)
Extra space for over flow.The lower shelf. That pillow is getting a cover and moving downstairs to the sofa. One of the bins on the second shelf is empty !!!!!
Not bad for weekend project.
In case your are wondering I only kept the sheets that had ALL their pieces. Then I folded them using the "envelope method" ( not sure if that is what it is called but that's what I call it :) Basically, I put the pillow case, flat sheet and fitted sheet and put it in the pillow case. I like it because it keeps everything together .
