MCT 3D Wednesday: Organizing My Closet

by Veronica

I had a very messy room as a child. I never understood HOW it was possible for other kids to keep their rooms clean when mine would be strewn with clothes, toys, and who-knows-what-else within minutes of tidying it up.

But once I moved in with my husband, I became somewhat of a 'clean-freak'. Now everything has its place and if it's not pretty, useful or sentimental, it's given away or trashed. I'm working on a fine balance between having a clean, welcoming home and having a heart attack when I find something out of its designated area.

My newest organizational project is our linen closet. My dream closet looks something like this. But I really don't want to spend money on fancy baskets and other items to straighten up a closet. Let's face it: I'm really the only one who goes in there. So for now, I'm going to (try to be) content with just fixing it up and giving it some thought-out organization.

My first project is turning ugly/utilitarian paper boxes into streamlined holders-of-all-things. After covering my box in kraft wrapping paper, I simply wrapped some pretty ribbon and twine around it and hung a very easy-to-make tag to identify the box's contents. Easy. Peasy.

MCT products used:

I'll continue to make more boxes/tags for sheets and other items and see how I like it. This is a project in progress.

Be sure to pop over to Emma's blog to see what the other designers created for 3D Wednesday!

Thanks for stopping by!

I hope you were inspired!
