Coat Closet Chaos

I'm sure many of you out there have a coat closet, right? A closet that you must look at everyday when you come home because that is where you put your bags, coats etc. Well for all of you mudroom challenged peeps out there like myself, I'm sure your coat closets are very organized. And you know me, I am all about everything having its own little place in the home. It's getting our home to this point that is my challenge because it's just not happening fast enough.

We have a coat closet. Take a look, isn't it just adorable?

When I look at this closet, I like it. When I look inside of it I HATE it! Hate is such a harsh word but take a look:

UUUHHHGG!!! You see what I mean? Unfinished floors (because we're good at cutting corners and it works when the door is closed!) underutilized vertical space that I MUST find a purpose for and random bags, scarves, gloves, hats and mismatched hangers. The things on the shelf are just piled there because they have no home :-( And everything needs a home, even inanimate objects...Note to self, seek a therapist. Anyway, I am determined to make this closet something that I don't mind seeing when I come home, something that I LOVE. Well it will be my inexpensive, DIY, work with what you have and try to spend little money because we don't have much version!

Stay tuned...

Interesting post. I have a friend that had a coat closet and I was like "wow". She had about 3 or 4 wicker baskets at the top...all the same. She used them for mittens and hats I guess. I was just in awe that someone actually had such a neat coat closet.

She also had potpourri (spelling) packets in there. So it smelled delish!

As I write this, I am thinking I need to go fix my own coat closet.
