Closet Tour

Several of you have asked to see my closet and storage systems again. Since I am stuck here in the "Siberian" part of Tennessee where it is barely above minus one, I thought it would be a good day to give you a tour.

This video shows the master suite closet which is located just beyond my bathroom.





I keep most of my shoes on racks in the finished room over the garage. I found both these shoe racks at Bed Bath & Beyond.



In the future, I plan to turn this room into an actual closet designed to fit my needs. For now it is used to store shoes and some extra items for the home that I am not using to decorate with at the moment. 




There is always room for more shoes! My mother and all of the women who work with me in my company also wear my shoe size. They love getting the ones that don't work out for me.




I hope this blog post gives you some tips for organizing your own closet and storage systems.

Hopefully, the frigid weather will leave us soon and we can return to date nights and fun filled weekends.

Thank you for joining me on this wonderful journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!

Closets Revealed!

Readers have asked to see my closets and to learn about my organization strategy so this post is a tour of my closets and storage systems.


The walk-in closet off the master bath is home to my clothes, small clutch bags, hats and most of my jewelry. That black object in front of the blanket basket is a stool.

I organize clothes according to color and by dressy or casual. Jackets are on the top and tees are on the bottom of the right side. Pajamas, dresses, tunics, winter pants and jeans are in the center. (Summer pants are in an upstairs closet for now.) 

In the reflection of the mirror, you can see the left side which holds blouses and tank tops and casual jackets and sweaters.



The folding doors are fully mirrored and there is a built-in chest to the left. I keep jewelry in the chest and in the mahogany jewelry box on top which was a gift from Mr. Mickey. Clutch bags are in those colorful storage boxes and hats are in the round hat boxes if they aren't so large they won't fit in them. (Never wear a hat wider than your shoulders.) The one hat that you see is almost there. I have never found a box to fit it.



The best silver cleaner ever is in the gray jar. It can be found at Target. Look for Connoisseurs® Silver Jewelry Cleaner.



Shallow trays for organizing an office drawer are great to keep jewelry from getting tangled. They can be stacked in deeper drawers. You can usually find them at Walmart or any office supply store.

I bought that mirror in an antique/junque store for $5. It was matte purple! I took it apart and painted it to look like rococo Italian carved wood. 

I store my shoes and scarves in the closet of a small upstairs bedroom I've named my dressing room.

I found both of these shoe storage systems at Bed Bath and Beyond.


On the back of the door is more shoe storage. 

  
The guest bedroom has shelves along the side walls which are perfect for storing larger daytime bags and tote bags.



I keep bags stuffed with tissue to hold their shape and stored in a dust bag if they came with one. 


I hope you have enjoyed the tour! 
Have a great week!
