Every once in awhile I forget who I am and wish I was some sort of minimalist. Ah, if only I was that person whose closet was just a shelf of reasonable items. But I'm not that person. I'm the person that has hung onto a whole shelf of small boxes that used to hold macarons in case I ever need to use them for gift boxes. And all these things do come in handy I promise I promise.
I suppose someday it would be great to gut the whole closet and have custom shelves for it but that's a way down the road project. Originally this was the one closet for the master bedroom (how did people LIVE?!) so it was meant to hold clothes and not wrapping paper so I put some bookshelves in it and they are so helpful. Over the years it changes as life does depending on what I suddenly need to store in here at quick access or not. When I'm working and all my office crap isn't in here, this is what you would see if you opened the door.
thing! It's pretty helpful, I should seriously make it as a baby present for people.
Behind the shelf I had a big gap and I could have either shoved the shelf all the way over but I decided instead to leave space for larger wrapping paper.
Whenever that magical gut job with custom shelves happens I'll replace the light fixture situation in here. Until then: pull chain.
I just added this in here. Makes me smile.Ikea that did the trick and boy does it!
There's even room to put the big box of cat food in here and my yoga mat and Wii balance board.
