Walk in Closet | Before + After Pictures

Today I got to organize the master walk in closet. It took me about 2.5 hours {including time talking on the phone distracted}

(All pictures taken on phone)

What I did with this closet was take out EVERYTHING on the top shelf and on the floor except for the three things they asked to leave there. Then I brought in the storage organizers I had available and began filling them up with things that belonged in closet. I found alot of things that don’t belong in a clothing closet. Isn’t that the downfall of any closet? It becomes the catchall for any and everything. So I sorted out what needed to be put in storage, what needed to be taken out of brown boxes and put in plastic bins. I added a hanging clothing organizer in the middle which I like because I think it gives the closet balance to not just have one. Overall, over 6 boxes of stuff was condensed down into the plastic bins you see in closet. I took out 2 boxes of photographs as motivation to actually put them in photobooks and one bin of summer clothing out to be put in attic. Otherwise everything went right back in closet- just where it belonged though.

The bins I had available to use – I actually didn’t use them all (not sure why laundry baskets are in this picture)

Those are all the boxes I got rid of that had things in them.

  1. Great job!

    I, actually, like to keep things organized … and like to organize … however, having a family of 17 people pretty much assures CHAOS much of the time. 🙂

    We are in the midst of a COMPLETE household overhaul. Certainly wishing that some of my kids had your gift/desire to organize. It’s like pulling teeth to ask them to help dig through boxes with me.

    Hope you’re doing well!
