Needless to say, I'm pretty excited about the changes.
First up: Shoes! I'll admit, I have a lot of shoes. Combined with a poor organization system for them, my closet looked like a mess. Until I found this beauty at Ikea! The Hemnes Shoe Cabinet with 4 compartments (they have a 2 compartment version, but it's much taller). We paired it with a matching Hemnes mirror above.
The compartments open from the top and your shoes slide right in. I was able to squeeze in quite a few pairs (3 pairs of heels on the left, 5 pairs of flats on the right). Unfortunately Dearest was only able to fit 3 shoes, yup, 3 individual shoes, into one compartment, so this is really just for my shoes. I still have a few pairs that don't fit, like my boots, and I have a couple pairs I keep in the box, like the red heels I wore for my wedding (pic on the right).
Looking at my closet, I realized that almost half my clothes are gray or black. Apparently I like to adhere to the "banker's black" a bit too much. I can't wait for the day when I don't have to wear a suit to work.
I opted to take the sliding doors off my closet and will be hanging curtains in their place.
Have you done any reorganizing lately? How do you organize your shoes?
