Hi friends! I’m dragging myself home from a fabulous birthday weekend in NYC today — what a treat to spend it with my BFF in one of my favorite places ever! I’ll share the low down later this week, but today I’m so excited to have Cassie from Primitive & Proper here to share HER Small Space Project! I’ve been so tickled to get to know Cassie, both online AND in person. She has mad furniture painting skills and a style so uniquely her own… plus two of the cutest kiddos ever. When she offered to share one of her organization projects here, I was thrilled! She tackled her master closet and –wow! What an inspiration! See for yourself…
Finally I decided to do something about it to make it more presentable. And when there are pretty things in a space, I am more inclined to keep it clean, so I decided to add a little decor as well. I spent a good part of a day cleaning out all the clothes, and made my husband (who is a harder of old t-shirts) sort through a giant pile of things he hasn’t worn since 1998. I organized my shoes, accessories, cleared off the floor, added a little vintage Indian rug, some gold Syroco birds and a branch, and it was MUCH better! Ready to see?
I added the little bench I painted with milk paint and covered with polka dot fabric just for a fun little punch. It also helps to keep my boots up straighter.
Shoes were all picked up off the floor and Chris has his in this hanging organizer on the left…
And mine are in the hanging organizer on the right. (I don’t own a ton of shoes…. not really a shoe girl).
My friend gave me this owl scarf organizer for my birthday, and it’s perfect for wrangling them all!
Next to Chris’ shoes, all the belts and ties hang on a ti hanger. (Chris doesn’t own many ties, so it work better for our belts).
I found these rather inexpensive hooks at World Market and loved their colorful vibe. They hold all of my necklaces.
They are especially important in holding onto the sentimental pieces, like my “MMOMY” necklace.
My other small pieces of jewelry are organized above in small vintage containers.
And that’s all I have for you! It’s a small space with no natural light, and one teeny little lightbulb, but I did the best I could! 🙂
Thank you so much, Heidi, for letting me share my conquered small space with you and your readers today!
Thank YOU, Cassie, for sharing your organization inspiration with us! I am so crushing on her necklace solution — don’t we all need a colorful way to display our accessories? I’m so blessed to know Cassie and look forward to hanging out with her some more at Haven this summer… and hopefully absorbing some of her talents!
Ok, let’s hear what you’ve been organizing lately! Enjoy your Monday!
