Does everyone have one scary closet or drawer in their home? The one that you just throw everything and pray that guests don’t open the door? Well, I have a few of these places but our hallway closet was by far the worst. It started out somewhat organized and then slowly became a dumping ground over time. I decided to hit up the Dollar Tree and give the closet a makeover for as inexpensively as possible. Now I get so happy when I open those doors and I see a little organization happening!
Brace yourselves, because this is what our closet had become. It’s bad:
I went to Dollar Tree (this post is NOT sponsored by the way, I just love that place!) and I grabbed as many organizers that I could find. I decided to go with all the same color to keep things looking as neat as possible. When using cheapo plastic containers, using the same color makes things look a little more upscale and pulled together. I also used some leftover white paint and painted over all of that dark wood. This was one of the last places in our home where the dark wood still existed. Our home was literally floor to ceiling dark wood when we moved in 6 years ago.
I also picked up these cute chalkboard labels at Dollar Tree! I used a chalk pen from the Target dollar spot and labeled each container. This is key (for me) in keeping things organized. I tend to just start throwing things places when I don’t have a specific spot for them.
Now everything has a place and container.
And the white paint just makes it look clean and pulled together!
This entire closet makeover was less than $20!! Amazing organization! And just because everyone loves a good before and after shot…
