Coat Closet...

I love organizing. But sometimes, I have a hard time finding organizational tools I really love. I like the idea of the closet organization systems, and I think I might enjoy the storage they afford.
But then, someone sent me pictures of this paint can idea (thank you John!), and I did it!
The paint cans are screwed into the wall and are perfect for holding flip flops, and in the Winter, they will hold gloves and scarves.


I repurposed a pallet, painted it to match the green and brown stripes I painted on the wall, and screwed it to the wall to be used for shoe storage.



So different, but so unique, and I would never be brave enough to paint the stripes in the entryway, or a room, so the closet is the perfect place for stripes.



There is still room to hang coats, it is over there on the left. And that's the closet!

Very clever. Another set of brilliant ideas!

I see neat ideas like this but I still have the same problem... How to fit coats for 11 into a closet made for 4? I do use shoe bags inside the coat closet but not for shoes. The hang over the door style give me extra space for gloves, hats, and umbrellas.
