Considering this is the end of October, the holidays are just around the corner. And knowing that we will have guests, I figured I needed to give them a place to stay. But the closet was overflowing and the little dresser in there was full of my junk.
I went into that closet, guns blazing. There was going to be room in there for our guests if it was the last thing I did! I took so much out that I couldn’t believe it had all fit in there!
I have a love of fabric. I buy remnants that I think are beautiful. I’m sure I’ll come up with a use for them someday, but they were just stacked in the closet. I decided to use the amazing storage in the Stratton Bed from Pottery Barn. Now all of the fabrics and trims are tucked away in a basket that fits neatly under the bed.
I stacked all of the throw pillows on the top shelf. I like to switch out my pillows for the seasons so I have a lot. And those aren’t the type of things you like to put in the attic (read: dust and bugs).
Now there is actually space for guests to hang clothes and put folded clothes!
The dresser was mostly full of wrapping paper and ribbon. And I found new places for all of that so that guests can put items away.
The guest room is almost ready. Stay tuned after 31 Days is over for a post on making a guest suite inviting.
