Where’s the closest closet?

Where’s the closest closet?

My internet died all day yesterday and half of today, which was
frustrating, but also kind of nice.  It’s probably good for the soul to
have an internet detox once in a while. Even though my ‘detox’ was
mostly me forlornly stabbing at my iPad every few minutes to see if
there was life there, I didn’t hate it.  I’ll tell you what I did hate
though, the marathon phone call to customer service to get it fixed.
Especially when there was like, a 15-second delay between us:

“Hi, I’m having trouble with my internet.”

“Is anyone ther—”You are having trouble with your internet, is this correct?
“Yes, it hasn’t worked since yesterday.”

“Hel—”It stopped working yesterday, is this correct?

Ugh! But we’re back in business now. I missed you internet *snuggle snuggle*.  Anyway, it happens to be the first day of summer vacation here! If that news kinda makes you want to lock yourself in the closet, it’s OK.  Here are some fabulously made-over closets you might never want to leave.
Vel had already converted this closet into a craft room, now she just needed to convert it into a cute and functional craft room closet. She painted the drawers, added a ton of organizational features and used every last inch of wall space for hanging a gallery of craftin’ inspiration.  Did you notice the plastic storage drawers got a makeover too?  See how on Vel’s blog Life & Home at 2101.

Kristen frequently has overnight guests in her home, so she decided to spruce up this little guest-room closet, which wasn’t at all sprucey.  Whereas I probably would have slapped on a coat of white paint and called it eh, good enough, she went the extra mile and added a little element of Louisville hospitality.  Perfect for her clothes-horse friends!  See more on her blog Twenty Paper Links


And finally, Tricia may not be able to use her closet as a hideout, but she probably opens it up just to gaze in organizational awe at it now. Before, a crammed and crowded avalanche of bedsheets waiting to happen.  After, a clean and colorful closet of calm! I love those Swiss Army baskets and the chrome shelf dividers. And the white paint makes all the difference too. There’s totally value in refreshing a space like this that probably only you will see. It’s like Feng Shui for the mind!  See it on her blog Simplicity in the South.

    The craft closet/room after organized is wonderful now if only I could get organized with all my stuff.

    Those closets are awesome. Also awesome are the new menu tabs up at the top! Are those new or have I just been oblivious?
