To go along with my spring cleaning kick, I have been organizing my closets. We have small, poorly laid out closets in our new apartment and to keep them clean can be a challenge. They lack any sort of shelves besides the requisite hanging bar so to get more bang for my storage buck, I made a trip to Target to check out organizational shelving. For the bedroom closet I desperately needed something for my shoes. I knew I didn't want anything permanent as this is just a rental. Finding something with the shelves high enough to fit heels as well as a solid shelf so that the heel didn't fall through was impossible. I ended up settling on a 3 tier stand and figured I could line the bottom of the shelves with cardboard to prevent the heels from falling through the cracks. Of course regular brown cardboard wouldn't be pretty so I used shelf liner that I had left over and covered the cardboard with that. I'm definitely not a DIY queen but I was pretty impressed with myself. Take a look and I apologize for the cruddy pics but this project was done at night and it's impossible to take a good photo in a dark closet!
See what I mean about the heels falling through?
My closets not normally this messy, I was in the process of clearing it out to make room for the shelf.
