Operation: Organization–Organized Coat Closet from Paige at The Pink Clutch


Hi, everyone!  Today’s Operation: Organization post is from our sweet friend Paige, from The Pink Clutch blog.  She always has the cutest ideas (check out her darling home office “command” center here and her holiday open house here).  Today she’s back, sharing a fabulously organized coat closet.  I sure wish mine looked like that!  Here’s Paige:


It’s winter and we all have a clutter of jackets, boots, hats, scarves and gloves at the door.  It is the inevitable drop zone.  The guests walk in … discard their loot and drop it on the floor … or even worse for me, hang it over the stair banister.  For our house it ends up being two doors ~ the front and the garage.  If you know me at all you know I don’t do clutter.   It literally makes me itch.  The Hubs compares me to Monica Geller … and yes I would love a tiny vacuum to clean my regular one.  I mean … who wouldn’t?

Last year at this exact time of the year we found ourselves snowed in and I found myself more than frustrated with the endless pile of wet items at my doors.  I was one day short of truly losing my mind.  Truth be told … I am probably that way a lot.  xo



It was time to make our coat closet something more than a drop all for things that we needed to hide when guests popped in for a visit!



A can of Kate Spade green paint and a few hours of my time and I was thrilled with the result!



A chic coat closet I was thrilled to use and organize.



A coat of gold spray paint on the hanging bar made it even more fabulous.
I just love the change from the dull wood it was before.
