Sometimes life gets busy & we get unorganized. It’s as simple as that. That’s exactly the case for a my client, Toni Tucker. Toni is Supermom of two precious little ones. First there is Ellis, an active 3 year old little guy with the most adorable long, curly locks. And then there is sweet Mari Francis, the beautiful, bouncing 6 month old of the family. On top of being a Mom of two little ones, Toni is the owner of Proposals in the Heights! A thriving boutique specializing in wedding dresses & all special occasion attire. Needless to say, she is one BUSY girl!!!
Toni had some specific things in mind when she hired me to get her organized.
1. She had several areas in her home that are catch-all places for things that are used daily. The problem was that each area/closet was full of random things with no rhyme or reason. Nothing had a home!!! And if you’ve ever followed my blog, you know that is completely against my rules for organizing! 🙂
2. She also wanted me to get her children’s play area organized. Since her children are still small the play area is in the den so the family can all be together. However, she wanted me to create a way that she can actually make it look like a den again after the kid’s are through playing, instead of all the toys being out 24/7.
Let’s start with the BEFORE photos of the catch all closets.
This is a hutch in the kitchen/breakfast area. It was full of winter coats/gloves/hats. Toni has an entire extra room upstair where these things should be stored. So, I had her move all the winter stuff up there so I could use this area for all of the everyday things that need an accessible home, instead of being lost in all different places of the home.
Here it is AFTER Mind Over Matter went to work…
KITHEN CATCH-ALL CLOSET
PLAYROOM / DEN
AFTER: NOW A LINEN CLOSET!
I found a ton of hardware throughout the house…so, of course, I gave it a home too!
Now Toni knows where everything is AND where everything goes! Back to enjoying the important things in life without the anxiety of being disorganized!
You know what comes next…
KEEP IT FUNCTIONAL
KEEP IT SIMPLE
KEEP IT BEAUTIFUL
