Happy first day of March people! Can I tell you that I have been through lots of stress these past two weeks? Ay, ya yay I tell you. Anywho, on to why we're here. I moved my scarfs from my coat closet to my master closet. I got the idea from the Lowe's Facebook page and right away I knew this was going to work better for me and would not frustrate me (I hope).
Here is what I put together on the inside of my closet door spending only a few dollars.
First let me tell you that I don't have many scarves. I have about eight or nine total but I loooove them. After this project I am "remembering" to look out for some pretty spring and summer scarves. I am also not one that hangs up her scarves in a pretty knot like how they are displayed at the stores. I gotta be real, y'all, this method is faster and easier for me. And when I'm ready to wear one I just grab it and slip it out of the ring. When I'm done I fold the scarf in half and loop it through the ring. Easy, right?
Here's the breakdown of my simple little project. I used a pant hanger that had broken clips and I asked my husband to remove the clips. He was happy to play with one of his tools. Giddy like a kid that just received a surprise ice cream treat. He used his Dremmel tool to remove them and had lots of fun doing it. Boys and their toys. :)
While he did that I cleaned the entire closet door with a Mr. Clean eraser. Next I used the hanger to determine where I wanted to hang it on the door. No measuring tape needed for this, I just eyeballed it. After I picked my spot, I cleaned it with rubbing alcohol (for the Command hook) and then I marked the spot with a pen for better guidance.
Next I slapped one of these Command hooks and waited an hour as instructed by the package directions.
Let's pretend we're waiting hour and have a look at where I had my scarves before this mini project.
I had the scarves in between coats and jackets. (Same closet that houses the ball caps) Not only that but they were on an Ikea scarf holder that I liked at first and then not so much. You see I was not able to slide the scarves out or back in when I was putting one up. And since the scarf holder was made of some kind of rope-like texture, there was too much friction when grabbing a scarf. It wasn't working out for me so I got to work not long after getting the idea from Lowe's.
Okay so after I waited an hour for the Command hook to set I hung the pant hanger minus the broken clips, and inserted some shower curtain rings that I bought a Wal-Mart.
Now here is quick transformation in fast forward. :)
For NOW this is the final project. I still have room for another hanger below this one but I am testing it out. I like it and it is a great use of space but I want to be completely sure that I want to keep it this way. And as you can see I only have six scarves here so there are a couple left. That's okay because so far I'm liking this new set up so I'm guessing that there will be a new set up in the near future and maybe a few new scarves too. And thank you Lowe's for the idea! You like?
