Why, oh why, do I do these things???
In a fit of...something, this morning, I decided to clean and organise the walk-in-wardrobe. You would think I would know better than to rush into these things all gung-ho and full of enthusiasm. But, I don't seem to learn from my mistakes!
You see, I could have put some thought into it beforehand and worked out how I wanted it to look and what I needed to have in order to achieve it. Instead, I hauled everything out (and there was a huge amount of "stuff" in there), and threw it on the bed or the floor. I then proceeded to wash all the walls and shelving and vacuum the floor. Sounds good so far doesn't it? Keep reading...
Deciding that the whole thing needed a drastic makeover, in the manner of BrocanteHome, a trip to the shops was in order. New coathangers (including about 15 to cover in pretty fabric!!), paper liners for the shelves, a shoe hanger, laundry hamper and those vacuum bags to store out of season clothes. Oh, and some hooks.
Not finding shelf liners, I got some pretty paper and sprayed it with room spray instead - the only problem with that was, I had to cut it to size. Which I did, and that was about all I had time for.
Anyhoo, to cut a long story short, there is still stuff all over the bedroom, and I have made a huge project for myself. Do you think I'll get those coathangers finished tomorrow? I hope so, because I have gotten rid of all the others, so have nothing to hang my clothes on.
Note to self - next time I feel the urge to do a major declutter, sit down and plan it first!!!
By the way, the photo above is NOT my closet - I refuse to take a picture until it's all finished the way I want.
