See what I mean....scary! Please tell me I'm not the only one whose closets end up like this.
After going through everything and filling a trash bag, here's the closet now!
I found the canvas storage bins at the Family Dollar for $2.00 a piece and painted numbers on the front!
Next weekend I'll be tackling the closet in my craft room.
If you don't hear from me next Monday, send help!

Your 'before' photos look painfully familiar! The canvas baskets are a great idea. I've gotta try this!ReplyDelete
Wow your closet looks amazing now! I love those cute bins you found.ReplyDelete
I really like the baskets. I think I need some of those in my linen closet. I need to do some organizing of my closet, too.ReplyDelete
The Linen closet looks great! It's crazy how much baskets/bins can make a differencEReplyDelete
I'm getting ready to mine this month- good ideas with the canvas baskets!ReplyDelete
Trust me, you're not the only one whose closets end up like that! I have a room that looks like that (hubs' office/tv/collections) recumbent bike that can't be used.... I have to do that linen closet every couple years. Where does it all come from? Mines happening soon, you and your fabric baskets inspired me. Love that Dollar Store.ReplyDelete
Wow, what a transformation! You're so lucky to have a closet, we don't have those here in 1926 homes, lol. I love your organizing inspiration!ReplyDelete
Those numbered baskets are adorable!!! Way to get organized. I bet it feels great!ReplyDelete
Thanks for linking up to Tell it to Me Tuesday @ Creatively Living!

Every time I open my pantry I dream of maybe someday seeing beauty. You not only organized but you made it pretty too!ReplyDelete
Looks great...I just tackled my bathroom closet too...but now I think I need some pretty canvas totes too :) LaurelReplyDelete
Looks great! The numbered bins are awesome! Now why can't I find stuff like that for $2?!ReplyDelete
I also love the number bins. That's so popular right now- I just might have to try it after seeing yours.ReplyDelete
You did an amazing job!ReplyDelete

Your closet looks so pretty now! Our family dollar closed up, but there is one in a nearby town. I might have to make a trip!ReplyDelete
Your linen closet is the same size as mine. I'm going to check the dollar store for those bins. I've been keeping my eye out for good bins for not only my closet but for my new shelves. I'm so glad I stopped by from Feathered Nest Friday!ReplyDelete
Nice job customizing the bins. The closet looks great. This reminds me to tackle mine.ReplyDelete
can't wait to see itReplyDelete

So much better--I bet you smile every time you open the closet. Thanks for linking up at Beyond the Picket Fence.ReplyDelete
I love the numbered bins. I just took the "before" photos for my linen closet, now I just have to make the "after" happen.ReplyDelete
now following you:)
We don't have a linen closet so the shelve under our sink look like that:) I love those bins...the numbers make them so cute! Stopping by from Serenity Now.ReplyDelete
I think everyone's closets end up looking like that at some time! Love the after picture - especially the numbers on the bins!ReplyDelete
Love the painted bins - form and function combined! I feel your organizing pain - my basement was scary! Thanks for joining our Impossibilities challenge - following you on Linky Followers.ReplyDelete
I love the numbers you painted on the bins! Great idea! Thanks for the inspiration and for linking up to our party!ReplyDelete
Found you thru French Country Cottage~Love the painted number bins!ReplyDelete
Man! My friend Nichole is on an organizing quest too and you guys are really rubbing my face in my messy junk drawers and bursting closets! I would love it if you stopped by to share this at my linky party going on right now:)ReplyDelete
My linen closet looked very much like yours. I'm working on it now though. Making progress!ReplyDelete
Yours looks great! Good work.
Love the sweet baskets with numbers, just what I need to organize a few of my closets. Thanks so much for the inspiration.ReplyDelete
I’m sorry it took me so long to get to your « Impossibility Challenge » post – this thing called “work” got in the way! But I’m here now and it’s great to read about your Organisation of the Linen Closet - all these posts by organised ladies (and gents!) make me hang my head in shame as I think about our closet. Well done on what you've done - can you please come to my house now and organise mine?!ReplyDelete
Congratulations on making your impossibility possible!
My closets are eerily similar to your before pictures. Those baskets look great! I can't believe you got them for just $2 a piece. What a score!ReplyDelete
That looks great! I love the numbered baskets. You got quite a deal and they look a lot richer. I am a new Twitter follower visiting from A Glimpse Inside. Vicky from Mess For LessReplyDelete
