actually yes i could.
in the early stages of unpacking, i pushed and shoved everything in there hoping it would just sort of fall into place. that wasn't the case at all. what i needed was a good linen closet makeover. something to make me feel a bit more organized and not like everything is going to come crashing out at once when i opened that door.
if we owned the house, i probably would have taken the shelves out and put wallpaper in the closet. i've seen some people do that and it's such an unexpected pop of color without committing a full room to it. i'll just add that to my list of fun things to do when we own out next home!
along with all the typical linen closet things, i also added a shelf for all of addison's craft things. she doesn't have any room for them in her closet anymore so the bottom row with the colored bins has all of her coloring books, crayons, paints, etc and on the bottom is her easel board to set up when she wants to. i know this isn't the typical thing you would see in a linen closet but it works for us and that's what matters.
i'm pretty happy with how this closet turned out and i'm excited to tackle my next space in this house!
