And even in these next pictures you can see that it doesn’t look so bad (because I actually picked it up, for the photo) but let me assure you, this random, space-sucking-dumping-ground has definitely been an issue for us in this house! It never stays clean, there is virtually no storage, and the huge 36 inch door either has to be completely open or shut to allow for anyone to even pass through the already small entryway.
So, on with my story… while I was sitting on the ground in our embarrassingly messy closet and coats continued to tumble down on top of me, I realized something…
This closet was actually really HUGE!
Literally it was just a big open cavity of space that had been installed under this decorative garden shelf and it was TOTALLY being wasted! I then stood up and starting taking inventory of how deep the closet was on each side and even knocked on the walls a bit to quickly do a “is there anything really behind here” test and surprisingly, nothing seemed to be in my way from making this closet a LOT more functional!
Till then… Happy Tuesday!
