The next one on my list was my daughter’s room. This was one of the first closets I organized when we moved in but it wasn’t really working. I originally used wire shelving to divide it into sections for long hanging, short hanging, and shelves. The only problem was there was a lot of wasted space. Luckily I found two narrow bookshelves as a garage sale for $15 total! One for my closet and one for hers.
The original arrangement looked like this:
You can see the beginning of the double hangers for short clothes on the right. They extend all the way to the wall on that side.Then there are a few shelves to use the vertical space in the middle and one rack for long hanging on the left. You can see where I added some shelves I had on the floor on the left for toy storage.
I started by removing everything. I initially wanted her bookshelf in the middle like my sons for easy access. However, I would’ve had to by new shelving as I didn’t have enough pieces to make that work. I decided to put it along the wall to the left.
I used two shelves for two rows for short hanging. I moved them up a little so I was able to add some shoe racks on the floor underneath. She originally had her shoes in a rack on the inside back of the door but they were getting too large to fit. The fit perfectly on the racks underneath her hanging skirts. I was also able to keep two of the smaller shelves for some bulkier toys. I still have the rack on the door with her flipflops but I plan to move them to a basket and keep it on the bookshelves. I just can’t find anymore right now. All the Target’s in my area are out!
The after looks so much better and actually stores more.
