My upstairs guest room / slash overflow “closet” is really coming together. I spent this Saturday building my IKEA Pax closet system & getting an organized home seems like a reality not a dream. I have a clear organizational plan. I’ve been purging some things as well. Selling, donating and throwing things that either dont fit, dont like anymore and dont bring me joy. This includes papers, clothes, shoes, skincare and makeup products in a word the CLUTTER it feels so flippin great. If you’ve ever put IKEA stuff together than you know you have to be in the zone and ready. Half harted or rushing to do it does not cut the mustard. I was fortuate enought to have JoJo put the base frames and did the heavy lifting work for me on Mothers Day but I didnt end up finishing until now. This space needs to function as a guest room, off season closet, product storage for review and tech/camera equipment also a studio of sorts. Here are pics I used for inspiration. The first one below is a dream but I like to shoot for the starts! “White is my favorite color”!
Now this is the current situation: I am so happy it is really coming along. I still need to bolt them together and anchor to the wall when I’m done but really liking it! I have to go get a few more shelves and take back wrong Komplent ones – somehow got the wrong size. Usually I am so very careful to check and re check what I get but will work out for me since I want to get a few drawers like you see above with the glass front and a pull out tray for sunglasses and necklaces etc.
One of the funniest things that is happening is that I”m so getting into the organization of things – getting a plan – streamlining my home. Getting every little space clean and simplified. Also making the mundane pretty. Why not make everything you do special – use that fine china, glassware, linens today on yourself! We arent promised tomorrow. I believe a clean organized home = a clean organized life (mostly). Organization has not always come easy to me dealing ADD and Dyslexia my whole life so this is a Big Big Coup!
I am learning somethings from a youtube channel I discoverd called LAClosetDesign“Million Dollar Closets” it says to set up your space like a store – so you “shop your closet” I can get on boarad with that idea. During this time I have gotten that Spring Cleaning Bug and have been making some new “chemical free” cleaning products along the way using very basic items and essential oils I love it!
I’m off to IKEA tomorrow & coming with me is another helpful pic and my newest list – I may hit the lighting section too but I have a plan!You cant go into IKEA with no plan and aimlessly wonder around – you’d be Cra Cra baby! Let me know how you organize your closet, home and office any advice is really appreciated! I hope for final look by the weeks end – I’ll update my insta and the page than!
I hope you leave your comments and just remember we only have this one life – be good to yourself and kind to each other!
