We received our themes for SYTYC and week one was organization. It was around Christmas time and it was time to haul all that Christmas decor BACK UP to the attic. I think most of us have this problem. Too many seasonal decor items and no where to store them to be easily accessible. I decided to think of a new storage solution. I had a closet under my stairs that was full of…well…junk. Literally the only thing in it I used was the vacuum. The rest either got donated or the sentimental things went up to the attic. So an easily accessible closet was now EMPTY! I made myself a Seasonal Items Storage Closet! As you can see from the BEFORE pictures, the closet was unpainted drywall and sub-flooring. This house is 15 plus years old and no one ever bothered to paint that closet. After the junk was hauled away, I began painting. I painted the walls all white to try to bring in some light. Yes I even PAINTED my sub-floors a dark grey. A perfect solution for sub-floors. Cheap and easy. Plus they really look great!
Pretty, pretty please go vote for me! Pretty please with sugar on top!
Plus stay tuned as next week I will take a couple of days and give you all the details on this closet!
UPDATE: All the detail on this closet can be found here along with a tutorial for the wrapping paper organizer here.
