I have something new to show you...well, not new really! It's something I have been thinking about for a while…organizing all of my accessories by color! But here’s the problem…I have no more storage space! Then it dawned on me…I have a coat closet that has no coats…not a single one! After all, this is the South and who needs a whole closet for coats? Sooo…I hatched a plan!
Baby Kitty says Ohhhh noooo! Look out! She’s taking out the power tools! But fear not, my handsome little co-host…
…I will only need to drill a few holes! First, I measured the length and width I would need. I bought a six foot length of wire shelving and had it cut at Home Depot into three 24” pieces. Then I bought enough brackets for the installation…a pair of wall brackets and three dry wall clips for each shelf. The installation itself was not hard, but it took a little longer than it should have because I had to make a return trip to Home Depot. One pair of wall brackets was the wrong size (it was in the wrong box) and another somehow left the factory missing a bracket! Note to self…put on your glasses! Double check before you leave the store to be sure that you bought the right size and have all the parts! Once I had all the correct parts, I just followed the directions…
…and about two hours later…including that second run to Home Depot…here you have it!
I think I am going to enjoy this! Just look at how much I was able to fit into what was a wasted space! I also found something I had forgotten about that I will show you later and discovered that I have plenty of candles. lol Now when I am looking for one more something blue and white to add to my hutch, I can go straight to it instead of looking in five different places. And…if I ever decide I need a coat closet, the shelves pop right out!
I did such a good job that my co-host was even able to stop worrying and take a nap! Wish I could! I still have a few more closets to rework!
