Closet Completion!

Looking at both of these pictures side by side, the "after" picture of the closet still looks so full of stuff!!!
I seriously spent HOURS organizing/throwing out stuff to make this closet more functional.
I even used left over paint that I had hanging around to freshen things up a bit!
{So I hope you can see a little bit of a difference!?!}

I seriously didn't spend one dime to spruce things up in here.
I spray painted the lids of some old canning jars, pickle jars, and a Costco cracker container, just to make them a little cuter, and used these containers to store common items together.  I also labeled each shelf with a number {as seen in the second picture below}, using the same paint I used for the back wall and a stencil I already had.

{Click on the picture below for a closer view.}

I used a couple of baskets I already had to store covered books and fabric.
I used a paper towel holder I wasn't getting much use out of to store my ribbon {I simply cut the holes of the ribbon cardboard holder thingy they are rapped around with a knife to make the hole large enough to slide the ribbon down through the towel holder}.
I also printed up some simple labels for the small organizing drawers I had and filled each drawer up accordingly.

The NOT SO FUN  part about organizing a closet is figuring out where everything should go and what to keep and what to throw away.
The FUN part about organizing a closet is figuring out fun ways to store and organize things, using items you already have around the house {jars, baskets, paper towel holders, cute little boxes, paint, etc.}!
Be content to use what you have and you'll be amazed at what you can create!
Now get those creative juices flowing and go organize something!!!

I soooo need to do the same thing with my office closet but i'm skeered! LOL I had to laugh at your paper towel holder ribbon rack - I did the same thing! Mine happens to be green wood with a giant chili pepper on top...but whatever :-) It works. I hope mine eventually looks as neat as yours!
