Finally Finished Friday #1 - My MOMS Closet Makeover

Here is my Moms closet Before and After pictures. This closet was a MESS, she went from having THREE closets to store all her clothes to JUST ONE. I still don't know how she did it, but she did.

She stuffed that closet TO THE BRIM, and to the point of no return. Until it finally came crashing down, yup you read that right, her ONE and ONLY shelf just fell off the wall, and left some pretty big holes in there too, YIKES. 

That's what got me started on redoing our closets in the first place. If that hadn't happened, we would probably still be struggling with storage issues. 

Here are the BEFORE pictures, look at them and weep, it was bad!!

I think the picture above was taken right before the shelf fell. It was funny because this was a couple days before my moms birthday, and I took the picture so I'd have a before picture. I planned on surprising her with NEW hangers, lol.... matching ones, so at least it would be a little better. Little did  I know that I would be REDOING the entire closet set up.

The shelf simply gave way, and even after I tried reattaching it to the wall, with HEAVY DUTY anchors, it still collapsed, and then there was EVEN more damage to the wall, omg, my mom was mad.

Here are most of her clothes, I was scared her bed would break too, he he. Dang for real though, the lady has a TON of clothes, I'm not even going to lie.

HERE are some AFTER pictures.

So what do you think? 

Just like in PART ONE of todays FINALLY FINISHED FRIDAY post I am going to see if YOU can figure out what I changed around. Lets see how many things you can notice differently! 

This is so awesome, doing this new series is proving to be JUST what I needed. I accomplished a lot this week, MUCH more than the 3 closets. 

I will be sharing the FULL tutorials throughout next week, so make sure to come check it out, and WHILE you are here, GUESS what, I am challenging YOU to give your closet a makeover.... With STEP by STEP ideas on how to do it (next week) I'm sure you can do it too. 

I have tons of new ideas for the blog, I can't wait to share them with you!!!

One more Finally Finished Friday ( FFF) post will be coming up later today. It's just awesome, and I'm sure glad I started my new series Make it Happen Monday it has helped me a lot.

My linen closet was out of control, and totally useless to me. YES I technically had all the sheets in there, blah blah, blah, BUT I'm no Martha over here, and when I wash the sheets I USUALLY put them right back on the bed, hello, call me crazy. So this meant I never really used my linen closet, and all those extra sheets just sat there, without a use in the world. 

Come back later today to see what I did with this ONCE useless space. Oh and btw the closet was SOOOO tiny, I wasn't sure if I could do anything better with it, BUT I did, and I just LOVE IT....

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, and baking. In fact my mother and I have been making cakes for over 30 years. I also love gardening, traveling, and all things crafty. I struggle daily to keep my like organized, along with my never ending battle to keep the house clean. I adore my three kids MOST of the time, and can usually be found doing the mom thing from morning till night. I try to catch a few mommy moments, but those are hard to find in this wonderful life of mine. I am blessed and happy, and am thrilled you stopped by today :)
