Out of the Closet


I cleaned my closet out last Thursday. Why? Well, one it looked like a tornado hit...and two my sweet husband told me as he was leaving for work that the telephone repair man was coming. That morning, sometime between 8 and 12. What does this have to do with my closet? All the cable, internet, and phone connections meet in my closet. I don't know why. I don't really care. Except for when a strange man is going to be in my closet amongst my clothes and shoes and bags and well..other stuff too. Then I feel a mad need to straighten, clean and put things away. Far away.... from strange men.



Domino?

And when I was done it looked good.



House Beautiful

It was all clean and straight and looked... nothing like these closets.



Domino

Nope, not even close.

My kids leave their shoes all over our den but it just doesn't have the same style as this room. Must be the wrong shoes....wrong furniture...wrong house.

I have a walk-in closet but I swear this fabulous lighting fixture would take up the whole closet. Maybe I should call it a step-in closet.

This, to me, is a normal closet that has been decked out. Love it!!
We could all do this, if Ruthie would come to play!!


Barrie Benson for Domino
For real, is this a closet? Or a guest room where they hung some clothes. It gets better....


Barrie Benson for Domino

Yep. part of the same "closet".


This looks like a closet that might be in a gypsy caravan. Crazy and colorful.
So my closet may not be huge and fabulous but you know what? At least it's clean...for now anyway.

  3. Did Bill do that closet for you? Our closets are actually pretty small-well Arty's would look better if he let me get rid of his clothes from high school but I would LOVE to have all those compartments you have!

  6. Amazing closets. I love the ones with the shoes thrown all about it. My house doesn't like that even though I have shoes everywhere! :)
