I realize that most of my recent posts have been very baby-centered, and with baby number 2 arriving VERY SOON, there will be lots more baby related posts to come. But I thought I’d give you all a break with something a bit more “adult.”
My collection of scarves has grown quite a bit since I first organized our master bedroom closet a few years back. At that time, I added some small drawers from the Container Store to one of the closet shelves, and neatly folded all of my scarves into one of the drawers. As I’ve acquired more scarves, they no longer fit nicely into the drawer, are no longer neatly folded, and even more scarves are shoved into the empty space next to the drawers. This organizing system – or lack thereof – has made it increasingly difficult to find the scarf I want, and often leaves them wrinkled.
I hung up a couple of scarves to determine how long they would hang in order to determine the placement of the second cabinet pull. In order to ensure that the scarves on the lower row wouldn’t drag on the floor, I determined that the lower cabinet pull needed to be placed just above the bottom of the scarves on the top row (creating just a bit of overlap). Once I decided on the location, Scott installed the second cabinet pull and then all I had to do was hang up my scarves.
I simply looped each scarf over the rail, and pulled the scarf through the loop to hold it securely in place.
Now not only do I have a much more functional way to organize my scarves and keep them wrinkle fee, but it also creates a very pretty display right in the entry of my closet!
