Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes.
Henry David Thoreau, Walden
US Transcendentalist author (1817 – 1862)

When I was a little girl, I didn’t really have a place to keep my clothes-and I didn’t really have that much.  When I was 10, I saved my “cotton picking” money and put a little 4 drawer pine chest on lay-away.  My dad helped me stain it, and it survived every move I made for the rest of my life.  It was every color trend that came along-I decoupaged it several times-and ultimately gifted it to my daughter in law who used it for her firstborn’s baby things.  It is now painted a beautiful gray and houses their place mats and napkins in their dining room.

If I followed Thoreau’s warning, I wouldn’t need such an elaborate closet, but, I love pretty things and love organization.  So, I hope you can indulge my pleasure at sharing my Lowe’s closet organizer that we put into my monster closet/dressing.  I love, love, love the space and every time I am in it, know how lucky I am to have it.

I bought this over the door hanger to hang things on right out of the dryer-but, I found it most useful in my closet.  It is great to have to put out what I am going to wear to a meeting, out to eat or church.  I usually hang things here when I take them off, too-it keeps them off the floor.  : )  I have started hanging my scarves with the tank top/shell that I would wear it with-again, I find I wear my things more often if I have done some pre-planning.

On the right side of closet/dressing room I keep dressier things-stuff I wouldn't wear when I clean the house at least!  I use a lot of sleeveless shells and jackets/shirts for layering.  The shoes in the cubbies below the shelves are shoes that are not real casual.

The shoes in the cubbies below the shelves are shoes that are not real casual-and what I would wear with these outfits.

I love this back wall of accessories!  I find myself using more of the things I have when I have them out-I hot glued buttons and ribbons on push pins.  The little dresses are orgami from scrapbook paper-couldn't stop myself from "decorating" my closet.  Laundry basket is handy and in the corner.

I find myself using more of the things I have when I have them out-I hot glued buttons and ribbons on push pins for hanging.  The little dresses across the top are orgami from scrapbook paper-couldn’t stop myself from “decorating” my closet. Laundry basket is handy and in the corner. The red trunk has seasonal things-I just packed my capris!

This is the left side of the closet-sweats, t-shirts, shirts, tunics and all my pants-dressy and casual.  The shoes in the cubbies are what I would wear with jeans/knit pants/sweats.  The top of the shelving unit is where I keep purses.
