Hi Friends!

Organizing your closet is one of those tasks that you push off because let’s face it… your family is really the only one that sees it! That’s how I view it anyway..If your ever at my house don’t look in the drawers.. never look in the drawers.

Anway, on the other hand, when things are nice and organized your life feels complete! Ok… I may be exaggerating, but an organized life is a less stressful one, that’s my motto. For those of you that know me know that this is just not me… but a girl can stive right?!

My closet was really an open slate. Nothing was painted… and everything in it was everywhere. The before pictures are horrifying, I know! We since have given the board games a new home.  So now this closet is going to be designated for bathroom needs only.

I pinned Dearlilly’s closet pic on Pinterest a long time ago and I’ve always been really drawn to it. It’s so lovely and organized! I just love the mix of dark, and light…and all of the natural elements too! This was my inspirtion pic for sure. She has the most incredible home.. check her out @Dearlilly.

Gorgeous right?!

Ok, Here’s my before picture. Fair warning… It’s pretty bad!

[/et_pb_blurb][et_pb_image _builder_version=”3.0.92″][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.0.92″][et_pb_column type=”1_2″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″ parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on”][et_pb_image src=”http://thefarmhouselife.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/scary.jpg” _builder_version=”3.0.92″][/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”1_2″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″ parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on”][et_pb_blurb _builder_version=”3.0.92″ locked=”off”]

So… in our defense, we really weren’t relying on this space to store all of our bathroom goodies.

We kept towels and what not under the sink in the bathroom and obviously used this space to store a random Christmas pillow and Outburst…lol

But in all honestly, Our guest bedroom is right around the corner from this closet. So It was time for this space to shape up and be more guest appropriate.

I love that Dearlilly used different baskets and storage containers to store all those bathroom essentials. I especially love the big basket at the bottom for laundry. Adorable!

When shopping for baskets and containers for this closet I made sure to get containers with lids to hide stuff that’s not really “cute”, but still important… like feminine products etc.

[/et_pb_blurb][et_pb_blurb _builder_version=”3.0.92″][/et_pb_blurb][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.0.92″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″ parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on”][et_pb_blurb _builder_version=”3.0.92″]This was such a simple project to tackle.  If you’re not a big DIYer… this should be an easy one to start with. You just need some paint and supplies, wallpaper (optional) and supplies, and a few baskets to organize.

I love that It had a blueish gray color to it. I ended up using a mini roller for the doors and used a brush for the edges. I kept the trim around the door white and ended up painting the shelves white as well for contrast. The shelves were made with plywood, but if they were a hearty wood I might have kept them natural. So instead I made sure to bring in natural baskets to add a complimenting texture. I also mixed in some metal baskets to get more of a rustic look.  I’ve linked the items I’ve used below.

So I went with a peel and stick wallpaper from Target. I wanted Buffalo plaid to make it more farmhouse, but instead of black which is my go-to color, I went with gray for more of a contrast with the dark doors.

Now, I’ve never used peel and stick wallpaper before so this was a little interesting. It wasn’t bad, but it was a little frustrating at times. I guess it has its pros and cons. For instance, a pro would be not having to deal with wallpaper paste. Instead, you have to continually rip up and unstick the paper from the surface to make sure your paper is on straight and to line up the pattern. But all in all, It was a rather quick job considering the area I was wallpapering was relatively small.

Super simple… Just unroll and peel the backing off a small portion of your paper and line up at the top of your desired area. Continue to unstick the backing and line up the paper on the wall until the wall-portion is covered. Next, you use your putty knife to push out any air bubbles. Next, use your utility knife to cut off remaining paper. Walla! The tricky part is lining up your next sheet to match the pattern.

The fun part… Decorating!
