Finished Closet

Our closet is mostly put back together, things sorted and placed on the shelves, and everything nice and organized. I only have two boxes to go through and sort. Can I just say I love my restyled closet?!
You can see the boxes I still need to go through...once that's done, I will cover them and place them on the shelf above.
I placed my extra blankets on top of the chifforobe 

I hung this to use as a hook. It works great! I found it at Hobby Lobby in their knobs. Love the chippy look!

The shelves above got all organized:
Here the hook has a shirt hanging on it

I covered some plastic mesh baskets with some pretty fabric and added a band of the same fabric on the navy bins. They all have labels (well, almost all! )


And the spot above my shoe shelves? Well, this is what I did with it: I used a canvas and covered it with my beautiful fabric to make a jewelry spot.


I added trim and upholstery tacks, then hung two frames - one holds my earrings (with the addition of some mesh wire) and the other showcases a couple of necklaces hung on a mercury glass knob.



I took the rest of the tacks and used them to hang all my necklaces.



Placed some pretty containers on the shelf to hold more pieces like some bracelets:

And this beautiful dish from a sweet friend holds my post earrings:


I love my jewelry all out in one spot. So easy to find!

Finally, I added the banner ( sent to me by Vicky of "Life On Willie Mae Lane" ) with my word of the year "Balance". Thanks Vicky, for this sweet reminder to keep my life in "Balance".

 With my closet cleaned up, my life definitely has some balance happening! I feel so much joy and yes, peace, when I walk into my closet. Here's to neat organized spaces!


Hugs,
