Our Home: Guest Room/Linen Closet Redo!

It may have been a while since I've posted, but it's cause I've been organizing like crazy! One of my goals for the new year was to organize/simplify my life... I have been sooo tired of not being able to find things due to clutter for so long, and I decided it was finally time I do something about it!

First up, our guest room closet that also doubles as a linen & other random things storage closet. Before the redo, this closet was nothing but a space piled high with stuff that couldn't be seen or found... & if you did manage to find something, it was wrinkled or broken due to the mess.

Now it's an organized little beauty!

I used plain white gift boxes (CVS babyyy) on the new top shelves to store things that we want to keep but that don't really go in a file cabinet... random things like old letters & notes, ticket stubs, product how-to booklets, etc. I labeled them using little metal book plates, kraft paper, and pink brads.

White storage cubes from Target - kind of annoying to put together, but super cheap & worth it to me! I hot glued mini-clothespins to each cube to attach the circle labels. Ooh the joy of being able to actually see the stuff I have!

Just enough room for guests to hang clothes!

Hope you like the new closet! Practical & useful, yet still a little cute... woohoo!
