real transformation

 Little Girl's Closet
This little girl couldn't see or reach most of her clothing.  We added a low hanging bar and cleared the floor area to make room for her footstool.  On the top shelf, we containerized and labeled her infrequently used bags, purses, blankets, etc. so that items are easily seen and accessed.

Little Boy's Closet

Before organizing, there was clothing spread out over several hanging bars. Along the back wall, several organizing tools were inefficiently holding books, shoes, belts, and sports equipment. Crates and boxes underneath the clothing held books and an overflowing hamper contained dress-up clothing.  First, we removed the inefficient organizing tools. The clothing was sorted and much of it was purged or passed to little brother's room. Clothing was grouped according to type, and all of it fit easily on the bottom hanging rod. On the shelf above the rod, we added an 8-cube organizer by Closetmaid to hold shorts, bathing suits, socks, pajamas, shoes, etc. with canvas drawers to contain the smaller items. Underneath the clothing are two Sterilite drawers to hold books, making them much easier to access. The dress-up clothes were relocated to the dresser in the bedroom and the hamper will now be used for dirty clothes.

Bathroom Linen Closet

Before being sorted, this bathroom closet was a jumble of products in no particular order, making it
difficult to see and reach what was needed.  We sorted the products and contained them in removable drawers and open containers that the client already owned and that can easily slide out of the closet and be placed on the countertop when in use.   

Medicine Cabinet

This medicine cabinet is large and deep, which is a luxury, but lack of containers meant a loss of vertical space and made it hard to see the contents. Adding clear plastic drawers and open baskets (all labeled) makes it much easier to find what is needed.  We sorted the contents into categories such as Cold & Allergy, Pain Relievers, Bandaids, Vitamins, etc.  We were able to utilize the whole depth of the closet thanks to these awesome extra-deep baskets and drawers from The Container Store.

 Kitchen Drawer for grill tools, etc.

 This extra-large kitchen drawer holds large grill tools, meat forks, and hot plate holders. Adding drawer organizers makes it easier to see and find utinsels, as well as making it safer to reach into this drawer of sharp objects.
