Another successful closet makeover! This “After” picture is taken after just 2 1/2 hours of work. My client is a very creative person and has a wardrobe full of wonderful, fun pieces. Now she can find her clothes quickly and put together outfits easily, starting her day off on the right foot!
The way to get this result yourself is to purge!!! I first took out items she was no longer wearing or that were stained or needed repair. I also took out off-season clothing to be stored somewhere else in the house like under a bed or in a spare room. Once a closet is purged you are left with just the items that are worn on a regular basis, or semi-regular basis.
Don’t forget to purge all non-clothing items too. No kids clothing, no winter coats or boots, no miscellaneous items if you can help it. Take out anyone else’s clothing and store it in it’s place. Try to keep your closet just for your clothing, shoes, and accessories.
Once you purge then you have space to organize. You can see from the picture that jackets, shoes, shirts and sweaters are all grouped together beautifully and are easy to retrieve. The “Before” picture is now just a thing of the past.
Your turn next! -Meredith
