  • How to organize a hall linen closet

    I’m ridiculously excited to add function and organization to our home. After living in chaos for the past year and a half, we’re finally able to implement some storage solutions that make life a little less chaotic. The hall linen closet started out dark {as did much of our home} and the bi-fold door fell off every time we tried to open it, posing a threat to myself and the girls.

    It was so bad that we rarely if ever used it, storing our sheets in laundry baskets and only forgotten bath toys in the hall closet. Over the summer we replaced the worn carpet with hardwoods for the hallway and more recently we had all of the doors in our home replaced, including the dreaded bi-folds {more on those details to come soon}. I wish I could find my before photos…I’m not giving up yet, I know I took them.

    Before Chris could get the door knobs on, I was painting the interior of the closet. At first I painted the shelves in our white trim paint, but decided to use the wall color on the final coat. A fresh coat of paint reduces the risk of things getting lost, as they often do in a dark closet.

    I added bronze metal label holders with tiny nails so that we could easily decipher which sheets belong to which bed. I cannot tell you how many times we’ve unfolded sheets only to discover that they weren’t the ones we were trying to change. That’s the risk you take when you don’t have licensed character sheets, I suppose. During this process, I was reminded that I am not Martha and if folding a fitted sheet beautifully is really possible. Of course I refuse to iron them, so I’m a helpless case.

    The linen closet is also a great place to store excess toilet paper and candles that aren’t in use. I know it seems simple, but I love our new hall linen closet and am unreasonably proud of it. It’s a good day when we can add a little more function to our home.
