$12 Closet Reno

Hi there, and welcome to Simply Mindy. Since it’s spring I thought it would be appropriate for my first post to be about my linen/hall closet update. I don’t know about you, but a decluttered organized space makes me happy! Plus, a little spring cleaning never hurt anyone. This relatively simple project was very inexpensive and did not take much time. So, let’s get started.

Goals for the closet:

1. Maximize space
2. Declutter
3. Address lighting

Step one: clear everything out and get rid of unused items (i.e. Old sheets/towels and expired meds). Forgot to take a pic before adding shelves.

Step two: add shelving. I used scrap wood from recent home renovations.

Tools used: Saw, Leveler, Stud finder, Drill, Hammer, Wire shelf screw kit, Tape measure

Step three: use storage baskets/bags to organize. I chose to use labels to ensure everything will stay in its place.

Here is the result.

As far as lighting goes, these are battery powered push lights and are also from Dollar Tree. I may add more later.
This entire project took a total of about 3 hours collectively over the course of a week (working mostly during nap times), and only cost $12. And, by the way, I was left with extra space. Bonus!

Please leave me a comment, if you liked this post! Next week, I will show you my front entry makeover. Thanks, and God Bless!
