I had to totally purge the closet that still had 2 of my daughters' things in it and they have been moved out for years. I bought big plastic tubs and "tubbed" their lingering belongings!
I then wanted to add shelving. After a trip to Home Depot I discovered that the shelves for closets were not wide enough. I found some bi-fold doors that were exactly the width I needed AND they were wider in depth! I simply took off the hinges and used them as shelves! I have built in shelves on the inside of the left side of the closet so I was able to simply lay the bi-fold door on that and mounted two brackets on the other side. I found the bi-fold doors were lighter but sturdier than the closet shelves too. I removed the hanging bar and stored it if needed some other time.
I bought the large plastic drawer to put my large punches in. I then mounted a cafe rod in the back of the closet that holds the most used punches. I organized paper by color and size into various boxes. I put all my Tim Holtz dies in the 123 box. I used to have them in drawers but I find it much easier to grab them right out of this box. Yes there is a lot of stuff in this closet but I labeled the boxes to make finding things much easier. I hung my "jewelry" storage with the plastic pockets on the opened bi-fold doors that belong to the closet. This way I can see the stamps inside or the other punches that did not fit in the drawer. I still am organizing my 12 x 12 paper pads into the canvas box and the tan box on the floor.
I found this shelf unit in the closet, one of my daughters had made it in high school. I thought it would make a great shelf for some of my Tim Holtz stamps!
I also have a wonderful hutch that needed cleaned out and this is how it turned out! Notice on the right side the wonderful top part of the clip it up! I happened to get it 50% off as well in Hobby Lobby! It holds my Stampers Anonymous stamps and various cling stamps so well! You know what they say...out of sight out of mind! Here I can just spin it around and find what I need for the project that I am currently working on. I love it!
Here are some close ups of my Tim Holtz "123" box and the great paper storage boxes that are stamped with clocks! I found these at a discount store and only paid $1.00 per box! They are great for my 8 x 11 1/2 paper. Check out the awesome wooden box that I found at TJMaxx that holds all my distress paints, distress stains and extra paint dabbers! It's great because of it has handles that I can just grab it out of the closet if I need the whole box.
