A Clean Spring Sweep

The change of seasons always motivates a fresh look at closets and storage. Last week I was at my daughter's home, where together we did a clean sweep of several areas. The biggest transformation came to her hearth room shelves.

On either side of the fireplace are two large shelving units. After they bought the home, the couple had   the strange drawer/shelf configuration covered with doors. (I think the black cremone bolts added a nice vertical touch.)

The doors provided a safe haven for toys which were stuffed willy-nilly onto the shelves. That wouldn't have been such a bad thing, except the cupboards need to be open for optimal electronic effectiveness. 


So, when company visited to watch a game or view a video, the chaos was on display. Hmm, my daughter thought this was a bit embarrassing. Consequently, our goal was to organize the shelving for public consumption. 


We measured the shelves and went basket shopping. Michaels was having a half price on wicker boxes and they had the number and sizes we needed. Bingo! 

What an amazing difference! Now company thinks my daughter is Wonder Woman. Truth be told, she is. :)
