Stylish & Organized Linen Closet–Before & After
June 22, 2011 · Comments are closed
Over a long holiday weekend this spring, one of our big organizing projects was to purge and stylishly rearrange the linen closet. I typically do this kind of work for clients, but this time it was my turn!
Although the closet didn’t look up to my standards, it functioned fine. I think this is one reason why it took us so long to get to it.
As I mentioned, our “before” closet was functional, but needed a coordinated look. So out came all the items. The shelf liners were removed and the shelves were painted a crisp white. To add a punch of color we painted the back wall a fresh green that coordinated with a trio of canvas striped bins we already had.
While my husband was painting, I organized all the supplies into groups and then housed the items staying in the closet into bins or baskets. Each basket received a labeled tag and were arranged on the shelves based on how frequently they were used. We had most of the supplies for this project. I only needed to purchase the top three bins and for those I selected a solid beige canvas so that it didn’t compete with the stripe, but was a different texture than the baskets.
We are much happier with the way the our linen closet looks today!
