This is what the closet looked like when we started. Yeah, I'm embarrassed to show this mess, but I'm keeping it real.
We removed the bottom two shelves.
My husband cut them down and reinstalled them, so I wouldn't completely lose that storage capacity. (We need every inch in this little house.)
I reworked the linen closet in my master bathroom to hold all the linens in the household, so, now this closet holds only cleaning supplies, craft and kids art supplies, and a few miscellaneous items like light bulbs and extension cords. Most importantly, it now also holds the vacuum. ( No, I'm not just lazy with my vacuum cord, this vacuum is great and still going strong, but the arms that hold the vacuum cord, were knocked off about a year ago. Probably from taking too many hits while it resided in the hall.) I am so happy we made these changes every time I walk down that hall or open this closet.
