It’s Handmade Monday and I didn’t have anything really ready so I decided to share an idea I had awhile back when I was trying to organize my close. I have a couple of pairs of those scrunchy boots that won’t stand up and are always falling over and in the way. I don’t have room to store them in boxes so I had an idea when I was going through my closet and getting rid of hangers. I could use skirt hangers for them! I’m sure someone else has had this idea, but here is what I did:
I used the stick on hooks and placed them on a little wasted space (according to directions which come with the hooks –very easy to do). I did two since I had 2 pair of boots to deal with but I could have probably gotten 4 if I had placed some below in another layer. I just held the first pair against the wall to see where the second hook needed to go.
Then I clipped the boots onto the hanger and hung them up. Easy! I think the whole project took me less than 15 minutes. And it’s nice to have my boots hanging up out of the way and I know that they won’t get damaged or stepped on or forgotten when boot season comes back. The only real difficulty was getting a good photo, but I think you can see what I did in this series of shots.
On the subject of organizing and those little stick on hooks, I used them on the inside of my pantry door to hang a lot of my little odds and ends like measuring spoons and cups and hot pads. It saves me a couple of drawers and space is at a premium. They really are a space saver!
I put them up after I got my cabinets refaced and replaced the louvered doors on the pantry. It’s so nice to be able to put my hands on my tools! I think organization makes such a big difference when you’re working on any kind of project.
OK, so I think I’ll head on over to Handmade Monday and see what everyone’s “cooking up” over there. I know they always have some lovely things and some good ideas. Just click on the link and go blog hopping.
