I still need to get some after pics of the basement to post. However, I sat down and made a list of every room in the house, and what needs to be done in it. One area that drove me MAD was our entryway closet. Our entryway isn't huge, but it carries it's purpose. The closet however, was not. I was so sick and tired of organizing shoes every.single.day. I had three wicker baskets that were all different colors, and no organization at all.
I was inspired by Ashley from Shanty2Chic when she made this adorable basket for blankets. My wheels started turning! (First off I completely forgot to get a before pic, bummer.) So, I spray painted the baskets with Rustoleums Heirloom White. Next I found some unfinished wooden signs that I painted white, then wiped a glaze over, cut out some letters with my Cricut machine and mod podged them on. I sorted out all of our hats/gloves and Brad's hunting stuff.
We also needed something for shoes, Brad was tired of his dress shoes getting dirty from having other shoes laid on top. We ended up finding a shoe organizer at Target on sale for $9.99!
It looks 150% better than it did, trust me! It feels so good to have a section of your house organized, now, will it stay this way??
