Closet Organization

I have an obsession....
 shoes, clothes, handbags, jewelry, scarves... it's bad. Wanna see?

Ok, so you can't see anything but clothes and shoes, but trust me, you don't want to see the rest of it (another post for another day). I have 56 pairs of shoes it's pinterests fault.

Anyway.. after one too many times of tripping over my shoes at 7am, half asleep, I decided I needed to find an inexpensive way to organize them. I liked the rack that I already had in there mainly because it held 16 pairs of shoes and only cost me $20 from Walmart. I went to their site and they were discontinued
womp womp

I searched for it on Amazon, just in case a vendor still had some left over. No luck. 
Then after the gym one day, I stopped at home depot and strolled the aisles. I kept finding things that cost $50+ and they only held 20 some shoes at most. I didn't want to spend that much money on something to just hold shoes. Then I ran into this.... 

The best part about them..... only $13.98 and they stack! They only had 2 on the shelf and none in the back. So I rushed home to order them online. I bought 6. I knew I only needed 5 for the closet, but I wanted 1 extra just in case I needed it for something else. At only $14, why not?

Once they arrived, I quickly ran them upstairs (all lies, they were heavy! I carried two at a time) and started putting them together. It only took 8 screws per set and some wood pins to stack them. In just over an hour, I had all 5 of them put together and stacked. see...

I LOVE it! My dark colored shoes are on one stacked shelf, light colors on the other. Boots and winter shoes are on the smaller one on the back wall. For the price I paid, the quality is good, set up was a breeze and they look great. I am one happy girl! 

Now go get some stackable shoe shelves, you will thank me later.

Coast to Coast

I just ran across this post and it was way to cool not to share. Shane over at Whispering Sweet Nothings has created a way for bloggers to find other bloggers in their area. Go check it out and sign yourself up. Why didn't I think of this!


Hi There!

When I was a young girl, I climbed trees, built forts, and swore like a sailor. I didn’t shave my legs, wear make-up, or have girl sleep over nights. 

Well, here I am at 27 years old and a polar opposite of the younger version of myself.  I love pink, fashion, glitter, cooking, baking, organizing and home decorating. I find it amusing when I run into friends of my tomboy days and they say “Oh well aren’t you crafty!” when they realize in fact, yes I am a girl who enjoys doing girl things. Follow me as I craft my way through my kitchen, my home and my (soon to be) classroom.
