Okay, so I have to admit, I have A LOT of shoes. I'm not the type to put away my summer shoes during winter, because you never know when you need a pair of flip flops or open-toe heels during the colder months (call me crazy but I don't stick with the close-toe heel rule...if there is one). Because I don't put away my summer shoes, coupled with the fact that I have a ridiculously small closet, it can look like a hot mess with the quickness. My closet is in my son's room, so even if I line my shoes up nicely, he eventually gets in there and messes them up. Hence, my need for a solution!

Closet makeovers are quickly becoming one of my favorite things to do for clients--mainly because I think it has an under-appreciated impact on everyone's day and they immediately see a positive change. If you start your day struggling to find things in your closet and you end your work day by tripping over shoes (and can't to shut the door) that's TWO times it's robbed you of time and maybe even joy. Here's what I've discovered after a couple of makeovers of my own. Scroll down to see the scary before, the happy after, and then click over to my blog to see the amazing $30 unit I hacked to create this gorgeous organized built-in closet!
