I've always, and I mean always, hated wire shelving. And ps, hate is a super strong word for me. I tell my kids it's a bad word; it ranks right up there with any other four letter word which is saying something for the overall disdain I have towards wire shelving. I realize it's a little over-dramatic. Anyhow, while I was putting clothes away and tidying things up in my son's closet last week I randomly decided that I was done with the ding dang wire shelving in the closet and busted out the power drill to remove. it. all. Good riddance!
If you follow me on instagram you already know this. It was a very Mommie Dearest type of moment, so it was probably a good thing my kids were at school when it happened. ;)
I organized my boy's closet a few years ago and it still looked pretty good, but I was ready to ditch the wire shelving all together and just start from scratch.
The truth is he's older now, and his clothes take up more space. I mean he wears the same size shoe as I do! I think a new closet system will really help to maximize his storage space.
I got started over the weekend by wallpapering the walls with my favorite beadboard wallpaper! I also moved in an old bookcase and have big plans for it. More on that coming soon.
Sorry for the poor quality phone pics. When you're knee deep in a project like this, busting out the good camera just seems like a waste of time. ;)
I've obviously got a long way to go, but here are a few super inspiring organized boy's closets that have been keeping me motivated!
I'm loving the look of built-in cubbies, shelving and pull out drawers! Organization is total bliss for me so I'm really pumped to be giving this closet an overhaul. Are you a wire shelving hater too?
