You know what I’m discovering about myself in 2019?? I actually like organizing. Really, I’m surprising myself here. But I’m starting to get the hang out it and I’m kinda getting hooked. Weird, huh?! Miracles happen my friends. And my organization streak continued this weekend when I randomly decided to go through my entire closet late Saturday night. I got rid of a ton of stuff and then woke up Sunday determined to do even more. So I tackled our small linen closet and then I got so excited about the finished look that I thought it would be fun to share it with you fabulous humans today! Sound good? I hope so. Ok, let’s start with the before photo.
I know. It’s bad. Real bad. I’m actually embarrassed to even show this photo, but this closet was literally the product of doing absolutely nothing to organize this space for 3.5 years. Pathetic, right? Yes. But I was finally fed up, so it was time to make a change. Here’s how it looks now:
Much better right, huh? I can’t even tell you how much happiness this little organized linen closet brings me now. I started by taking everything out and then I made a KEEP and TOSS pile. I was shocked to see how many things in this closet we didn’t actually need or use anymore. Plus lots of stuff was just plain worn out and needed to be thrown away.
I used large baskets to organize all of the linens. I have one for basic pillowcases, one for decorative/throw pillow covers, and then two for bed sheets. I decided to downsize to just two sets of sheets per bed–which opened up a lot of space in this closet. And I found that rolling the sheets up like little burritos made the fit really nicely into my baskets.
I had to laugh at myself while I was shopping for this closet makeover because I’ve literally been to the storage aisle at Target more times in the past month than I have in my entire life! Really, I feel like I’m there multiple times a week shopping for more storage bins and I just can’t stop. I’m officially addicted to organizing ALL THE THINGS.
Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my small linen closet makeover. I hope it maybe gives you an idea or two for your own linen closet!! xo
