Disaster area.

My closet.  It's a disaster.

I need an intervention.  STAT!

Don't get my wrong.  I love my closet.  It's spacious and open and there's lots of room, but there is also so much wasted space.

See?


I can't believe I just posted my mess-of-a-closet on the internet.  But see all that wasted space?  10 foot ceilings are great, but I'm 5'2".  I can barely reach to hang anything on that top rack.  Which is why there's nothing there and everything ends up piled on the shelf.

Ugh.

The main thing that's driving me nuts lately is my jewelry.  All these necklaces and bangles need a better place to live.  (Oh, and my shoes.  Embarrassing.)  (And my bathing suits?  Why are they mingling with my jewelry??)


So I need your help.  I know several of you have done some sort of Pinterest jewelry organizer.  I need a link.  But it's got to be simple.  I'm not remodeling my closet or anything, but I'm willing to make a few purchases to make my closet a little more efficient.

I don't really have any place to set anything, so it will need to hang (like above) or there is a decent sized blank wall to the left of my shoes in the above pic that I could utilize as well.  I'm thinking of starting with something like this:

Found here.

I like it because it's simple and doesn't require any tools.

But then I also think this could work well:


Both found here.

But I wonder if the sections will be too small.  I have a lot of long necklaces, so the bottom pic is good, but what about all my bangles?  Earrings?

I need serious help, people.  Ideas?  Advice?  Anyone willing to just come do it for me?  I'll bake for you!

THE Stephanie
I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
