Kids grow quickly. My daughter has grown several inches over the past few months.
She told me that on one side of her closet her shirts were hanging too low and interfering with the tennis skirts hanging below (I had already started emptying the closet before realizing this would be a bigger project than expected). I thought I could just raise the top hanging bar, however, with the shelf and support bracket on the back wall, it wasn't going to be that easy.
This side of her closet has a three drawer unit from The Container Store. It's worked great, but in order for me to lower the hanging bar with the skirts, I would have to remove the drawers.
I lowered the bar for the skirts, but now I needed a solution to fit everything that was in that three drawer unit.
So I ran out to The Container Store yesterday and bought a wider, shorter drawer unit (they are having their annual 30% off sale right now). This actually fits the space much better and it allowed me to lower the hanging bar to maximize the hanging space in the closet. (Yes, my daughter owns many, many tennis skirts...but she does play six days a week so it's her main wardrobe).
Since it's wider, it actually fits even more than the other unit.
A couple of aqua, lightweight baskets from Home Goods for pretty storage on the shelf above, and this reorganization project is complete. I just love an organized closet. How about you?
