Closet Makeover

I am not a hoarder, I might be a bit of a pack-rat though. I have started the closet/pantry makeover. I want to post pictures because I want to see for myself the change. I am however praying that I am not the only one in blogger world that has closets like this.

This seems to be the "where do I put this" closet. It had baking stuff, bigger small appliances, even my son's ski boots are in there. Bags for everything you can imagine. Receipts, paperwork, manuals for everything we have ever owned. My son's kindergarten/daycare stuff. Mind you he went to day care for about 3 months when we first moved to Maine, he went to school for three days when he was five, we decided right away we really wanted to homeschool and so that journey began. So that small bucket of precious keepsakes has been in there for quite awhile. He is a sophomore in college. lol

So needless to say, there has been an issue with this closet for quite some time. But by the end of this day, it will be totally something else. 

Before anything has been done, obviously.

Everything has moved to the kitchen.

First coat of paint. Now to the basement to cut shelving, oops picture is sideways.


  1. I'm no good at sorting by myself,hubby has to push and motivate me normally.You move fast LoL..That would have taking me at least a couple of days.Warm Blessings!~Amy

  2. You go Girl... nothin like cleanin out the closet and then o redo the whole thing!!

    Can't wait to see the redo!!

    Have fun!!


  3. If once you cleaned them, they would stay that way. I try to be organized and it works for awhile and then before you know it, it slowly gets messed up again! It makes you feel good though to clean them out once in awhile!

  4. Kat, thanks for stopping by my blog and becoming a follower. Love what you are doing with this closet - can't wait to see the completed project.


  5. Good luck! I am like Amy, I need help, so my hubby prodding me is what gets me gong.
    I have a hard time with organization, it doesn't come naturally to me.
    Can't wait to see it!

  6. I'm anxious to see the finish!! My closet needs help!!
