Cluttersharking the Coat Closet

My coat closet was a disaster.  I reorganized it a few times and even started switching out coats at different times of the year but the closet was still a disaster. 
The before.  This is an old pic, the cluttershark doesn't like to wait to take a before pic when a project starts.  She jumps right in and starts ripping things to shreds.  

Here is the pile of crap from the closet dumped into the playroom.  I love showing off a good mess. Here is the mess I am looking at while writing this post:
It has looked like this for weeks. Hopefully posting this pic will get me to clean it up tomorrow.  Back to the closet.  

We emptied the closet and took off the doors.  We also removed the hanging shelf that went across the top of the closet and patched the holes.  

My Mom is the best and for my birthday she got me the stuff to hang in the closet to organize it. She gives the best gifts!! Here is a look at what we installed.  I also got to use a circular saw to cut down that shoe rack so we could fit them both into the closet across the floor.

Here is the after:

So much better!!! I did send a few pairs of shoes up to my closet and some went to the big shoe store in the sky.  PB also has a space to hang his coats.  He has a little coat rack in our foyer but it was full.  Now he just has the one coat he wears most often on his little coat rack. I have even been putting my shoes away in the closet.  There is no giant pile of shoes in the hallway.  It's been really awesome! Happy Friday! Hope this inspires you to take on a problem area in your house this weekend!!!

Baby gift

I did some sewing!! It felt so good!!! AND PB was watching me and was so impressed with every little thing I did.  An impressed audience is a fun thing.
A friend of mine from college is having twins!! I got her a bunch of registry stuff and added 7 burp cloths, 2 crinkle taggie toys and 2 pacifier clips to the basket. 
Here is the finished basket.  I am pretty sure she doesn't know I have a blog so I am going to risk posting before i give her the gift :)
(I like this pic because my house doesn't look like the disaster that it really is LOL move the camera an inch in either direction and you can see piles of crap.)
I am so excited for this shower, I haven's seen my friend since PB was a baby.  She gets to meet JB too!! Hope you all have a great weekend!!
