Oh What Baskets Can Do!

My hubby and I moved into our house this past August.  There was a lot of work that had to be done, but one thing that was on the top of my list was to organize the linen closet. 

To make the linen closet I had the contractors who renovated the house cut into an ajacent closet through the bathroom.  What we got was five large open shelves in our bathroom.  They are nice, but not when they are full of junk and badly folded linen.  I don't have any before pictures because I did these changes before I started the blog this January.
So I set out to fix it.  I measured the closets and looked everywhere for the right baskets.  Finding five identical baskets that fit our measurments was difficult, and in the meantime my linen looked terrible.  Finally, I found these baskets at Pier One, and they were on sale.  I decided to go with baskets that were smaller than the space because I did not want the closet to look too crowded.  I also had a hard time fitting all my towels in.  I think the rolled up towels on the side are a great way to use that space.

Here is a couple more shots of the closet.  It is in a tight spot so I had trouble getting good shots.  I think you can get the picture though. 

The bottom shelf holds all my stuff that I don't know what to do with.  It is kind of hidden away down there.
It's always good to have  little extra TP on hand.
There you have my little linen closet makeover.  I might add some chalkboard labels in the future.  We will have to see.



  1. I love your textured white towels =) Baskets are my favorite home decor item ever b/c they are so good at corralling clutter and messes and making spaces look fabulous!

    Great makeover - I did mine with (yikes! mismatching!) baskets and it has stayed organized for over a month now! I'm sure yours will too! but with more style =)
