Creating functional organization systems always takes a bit of imagination. Every organizing project is different! I tackled a particularly tricky project of organizing the extra decorative items that aren’t currently on display in my home. I like to change out the decor in various spots around my house at least once or twice seasonally, so I needed a space that was easy to access while still looking neat and uncluttered.
After almost two years of unsuccessful systems, I finally got it together! This system doesn’t work with carefully labeled bins, because the contents are always changing. Here’s the shelf in my office that holds most of my extra items for home decor. I lined the shelves with coordinating place mats and table runners that I had on hand. It really softens the shelf and makes it easier to pull things off the racks.
I had quite a few small pieces that never fit on that shelf – extra candles, floral pieces and small vases. Those all went into the hanging shoe organizer you see in the picture at the beginning of the post. I love having all those things safely tucked away in the closet where they won’t get crushed or broken.
Do you have a room or space that’s been tricky to organize? Get creative and let your imagination work for you!
