Hallelujah I finally have an organized linen closet!!! For roughly $60 I was able to turn my cluttered mess of a linen closet into an organized oasis (ok maybe just an oasis for my mind but still...!). I've always been a bit of a perfectionist with most things in life which also means that I've always been very organized and meticulous about my things; however, once I got married and then added a child to the mix, life tends to take over at times and things aren't quite as orderly as I'd like. Alas, this mama is on a mission to get my small home tidy and revamped!
I have a tiny coat closet that really wasn't serving well as a storage for coats. Truth be told, everyone in my home has space in their closets to store their coats and jackets. Therefore, I decided to turn this tiny closet into a storage area for all of my dining linens. This way they would be in one neat, organized area and easy to find.
Every home I have lived in has had a narrow linen closet and this house is no exception. Come check out my closet for some tips that I have figured out through trial and error for making the best use so I get the most use out of the storage space that I have to work with.

I am a collector of linens; a habit started by my grandmother and reinforced by my mom. I grew up in a paperless kitchen and have carried that philosophy into my own kitchen.As such, I am always on the lookout for lovely cloth napkins, tablecloths and dish towels and have accumulated quite an assortment of all of them. I have tablecloths that my grandmother embroidered and tablecloths that my mom purchased for me on her travels overseas.I have napkins that I purchase on my travels, napkins I made and napkins that were gifted to me.But all these beautiful linens have been stuffed in drawers and lodged in cabinets resulting in a wrinkled hodgepodge of napkins and tablecloths.I was always searching to find a complete set of napkins and then when I ultimately tracked down as many as I needed, they would always require ironing. I never knew what tablecloths fit what table, so would have to 'try' them on until I found the right one and then those would need ironing as well.
I just love the linen closet. My obsession probably began with my mother who is equally obsessed with linens. Nothing is better than the smell of freshly laundered, perfectly folded towels and sheets. Actually, the only thing better is the sight of a linen closet containing crisply folded sheets, stacks of fluffy towels and shelves lined perfectly to their edges.
In the event you’re not truly on board with my obsession for a well-organized linen closet, I thought I’d shared with you some of my favorite ideas for creating such an oasis!
Ever have one of those days when you're changing your bedsheets and you can't find all the pieces that you need in a flash? Well, I have a solution for those hurried moments. Admittedly this is not my idea, but it's way too good to not share. I think it's the epitome of an organized home! So you're finished washing your bed linens, and you pull them out of the dryer, or off the line after you hang them to air dry in the fresh outdoors. Whatta balled up mess! I've learned a quick easy fix to coordinate your flat, fitted and pillow cases all in one easy location for a grab and go morning bedsheet change.
I got this Idea from some project's that were posted. I didn't take before pic's. That's cuz I didn't know about Hometalker's at the time. So your only gonna see the new closet.
I didn't take pic's of the closet, and I'm sorry I didn't. It was a dark old closet with a door that at one time had an old kerosene heater stored there to heat this home. Anyway's, I tried get'n pic's the best I could but I needed a couple of more feet of runway. So, I'll stack em best I can.
Here you can see the 5 row's of basket's. Not counting the bottom which would make 6 row's total. There's some space heater's stored at the bottom.
Every place we’ve lived since having children (4 houses for those keeping track at home) has had a linen closet- except the one we are in now. Bummer! It took me a while to puzzle it out, but I finally came up with this solution:
Keeping your linen closet organized will save you time and make you smile every time you open it. I keep mine organized by using baskets. I purchased large lined baskets that fit perfectly in my hall closet.
I have come up with a few uses for over the door shoe storage, that don't involve shoes. I have kind of a small house and storage always seems to be at a premium, so I have to get creative.
