Adrien: Secret Shame Update!

After posting about my closet a few weeks ago, I spent some quality time last weekend organizing and moving stuff around. I haven't bought hooks for the back wall yet (unless you count the giant nails left by the former owner. Thanks, lady.) but I'm hoping to do that this weekend. I saw something like this at Target:

And thought it might do this trick. I did, however, buy a large over-the-door hook thingy for my belts:

It's working out nicely for belts but when I tried to hang a couple of my smaller bags it really didn't work - they swing around too much and get tangled up. Then I organized all my clothes by type:

And reordered my storage box things, using the one on the top shelf for my smaller bags:

Here's what the rest of that side looks like:

And I organized my shoes a bit better:

So, baby steps! I still need to root out some of the shoes I don't wear anymore and deal with the hidden tower of shoe boxes that live in the left hand corner that you can't see. I'd also like to get some under-bed storage for all my boots, since they don't earn their keep in the summer.

Sorry, this isn't the most exciting update, is it.


  1. Looks great!

    These hooks are $1.28 at Lowes. hook&Ntk=i_products&pl=1&currentURL=/pl__0__s?newSearch=true$Ntt=utility hook

  2. Oh, snap! I'm totally getting those instead. I have trouble with the whole "lining things up evenly" thing but I think we might actually own a laser level. I think.

  3. I have them at my front door and they rule! Some of them come in 2-packs for that price so check em all out.

    If you don't have a level, you can find something long like a broom, hold it to the ceiling against the wall and mark a spot on it where you want them to be. Then slide it along and make little marks with a pencil on the wall!

  4. You just blew my mind with the broom thing. SO SMART!

  5. Serious. I would never have thought of that.
