Fifteen Fabulous Closet Makeovers

I’m assuming that I’m not the only one who loves to organize in January! Something about pulling down all of the Christmas decorations just starts me moving in that direction.  Every year, I donate decorations that we no longer use, and then it only seems natural that I turn my focus to my closet.

Because I volunteer weekly at a local thrift shop that uses its proceeds to help the needy in our community, there’s a lot of turnover in my closet! I’ll bring home some amazing purchases but I only let myself keep them if I donate a few items that don’t get worn. If you’re a Marie Kondo afficionado, then you’ll understand that sometimes clothes just stop “sparking joy” and it’s time to bless someone else with them.

My current closet at the MCC House has never been featured on the blog because it’s a non-climate controlled storage room off my master bedroom.  It also holds a lot of other stuff, like our luggage and some of the dining room furniture that just won’t fit in this house, and it’s not pretty.  Not even a little bit.  I’ve got tons of closet space, but my clothes are hanging on rolling racks and there’s nowhere to tuck things out of sight.  It looks kind of like an upscale yard sale.

I’m not complaining to be sure, but I guess my point is that I do love a pretty closet and so right now I’m living vicariously through some of my fellow bloggers, who were kind enough to share their beautiful closet spaces with us for this post.  I’ve linked to each of them so you can visit their blogs to enjoy all the photos and how-to’s (please pin from their blogs if you want to save ideas). Enjoy all of the inspiration! Click Here to Read More
