Show and Tell!

Happy Sunday! Hope you have all had a lovely weekend!
This week is the start of an exciting new monthly event hosted by the lovely Josie-Mary!
The first Sunday of every month will now be known as 'Show and Tell Sunday'.
Do pop over and join in, Its going to be fun!

This month's topic is 'your favourite spot in your house'!
I found this a bit difficult as there are so many places in my house that I love! Having already done a post on my bed :), and due to the fact that I have spent a fair few hours organising my wardrobe lately, I thought I would let you all have a peek!

Sorry about the poor light!
I had this wardrobe built into an awkward alcove when I bought my house.
Victoria and I had long admired the closets we had seen in the houses we had stayed in on our Florida trips and wished we had them at home. When I realised that with a bit of expertise (and, of course, cash) that I could have one in my own bedroom I was a happy girl!
My friend Mark (a fab carpenter!) was shown pictures and told to create and here she is!

Wanna look inside?

I can only let you see half as I'm not quite finished in the other side :)
I have recently been to good old Ikea and with a few storage solutions from there and a bit of ruthless clearing out I have managed to condense and organise pretty well!

Shoes (just the heels!) in fantastic shoe storage boxes from Ikea! (there's even 2 empty ones waiting to be filled!)

Acessories in these pretty storage boxes

These bigger boxes are fab (and huge!) and store all my 'every day' shoes (sandals and flip flops in one and boots in the other!). The hanging 'thing' stores all my make up, hair stuff and hair appliances too, previiously these took up loads of room in baskets so I'm really pleased at how much 'smaller' this storage is!

Hope you have enjoyed having a look in my wardrobe! I have to say bye for today though as I'm going to have to go to work now BOO!

See you all tomorrow when I will be announcing the winner of this month's giveaway!

Lots of Love

What a fantastic wardrobe, I know what you mean, when I went to Florida last year, the house we stayed in had wardrobes just like this and they were great. I can't believe how tidy they are.

Have a great evening at work.

Hugs RosieP x

Soooo jealous! Looks wonderful and organised! My wardrobe is orangey pine (MUST paint it!!!) and full up with bloody books that my other half can't part with but never reads ;)

maryannlucy said...

Fab wardrobe - my bedroom desperately needs doing up (we are saving hard, it is a big job!!) this is a good source of inspiration ;-)

Country Style Living said...

I all looks very organised. Great wardrobe, by the way you have rec'd a little Sunshine. please visit my blog for details.

Sherry said...

Wow Kelly! Everything looks so nice...I love the storage boxes. Since I have been a stay at home mom for the last 9 1/2 years I just wear p.j. bottoms around the have the prettiest things and to actually have real clothes....dreamy! although, I do like being at home with my little guy so I guess it's not such a bad trade off.


Kristin said...

That is it. You've inspired me. Must hit up Ikea! I purged my closet but still need some serious organization. Yours looks fabulous!

Polka Dot Moon said...

Nothing beats an organized wardrobe and I LOVE IKEA for finding solutions.....well, and a few other things that I might have needed ;)

Have a wonderful week!
