Closet Highlight Of The Month - December

December Closet Highlight

Ok, Dolls. This closet is every woman's dream! Double sided, double chandeliers, and a high-end bag collection that we'd all kill for. Oh, I couldn't WAIT to get my hands on this one.

Just because a closet is large and has ample space for clothing, doesn't make it exempt from under-serving it's owner. In fact, larger closets are much more likely to have items that are just "space-fillers".  Meaning, items that are not liked and are never worn, but remain there because over crowding isn't as much of an issue. This massive closet was no exception. 

After a thorough examination of each and every item, we ended up with 6 Goodwill bags, and 2 large bags headed for consignment stores. 

This client seemed a little nervous before the re-organization and re-structuring process started, because the different sections looked very bare from all of the discarded items. However, once I was done moving items around and making it more functional, she realized just how many items still remained.

This was one of the first closets I've worked on, where most of the existing hangers were already velvet. (WOO HOO!) 
However, they were multiple colors, which isn't ideal.  Instead of suggesting she buy new hangers that match, I color coordinated the hangers within each section, creating a uniform appearance.

I was excited to receive a phone call from this client, a few days later...

"I loved getting dressed now! It is MUCH easier than it's ever been, because the items to choose from are all things that I like to wear. I also made a couple hundred dollars selling items to consignment stores!"

It was so nice to hear that she was excited about her existing clothes again. She too had recently "cleaned out" her closet, but couldn't believe how much "junk" was still there when we were going through it with such detail.  Also, she even made money off of the items that were literally just taking up space in her closet. She wasn't going to wear them, but someone else will, and now she can use that money for new items! Win-win.
