Friday Find: DIY



Hangers & Shower Curtain Rings (Target)

After about a year and a half together, Tom is moving in with me... Which is awesome!  I can't wait to see him every day, and Rex is in desperate need of a stable father figure ;)  This means I need to clear out my spare bedroom closet for his stuff, and use my current closet space as efficiently as possible. My scarves were taking up entirely too much space, and I needed better system. Turns out I own 31 scarves (a fact I was unaware of until last week)... which  unofficially makes me the the Baskin Robbins of scarves.   After googling "scarf organization", I bought wooden hangers and plastic shower curtain rings (under $8 total) and was able to hang 10-12 scarves per hanger... and suddenly my closet got a lot bigger.  And, if anyone needs to borrow a scarf, just let me know - I've got 31 flavors! ;)

I'd seen this on Pinterest and loved the idea but hadn't gotten around to it yet! Definitely need to do it because it does look great. I love your Baskin Robbins analogy! :)

A J said...

I'm jealous of your beautiful scarf collection!! And I like what you did to organize them. I bought a scarf hanger from Ikea and it works ok, but I like your idea much better.

Congrats on you and your man moving in together!

This is amazing and I now know how I'm going to organize my scarves once I get to that point in my closet! And 31 scarves?! DANG GIRL! Although I could be close to that number... I will see when I get there ;)

Helene said...

i really need to do this, all my scarves are in a plastic box in my closet!

That's a great idea! I bet you could try it with belts or long necklaces too!

Krystal said...

that is genius! i have so many scarves just balled up in a drawer

Amy Shaughnessy said...

This is a great way to store scarves! I only have a few and they end up thrown on a shelf somewhere. I think I saw one that fell behind my laundry hamper last week. My closet could use some organization starting with these!

I'm in the process of doing this right now! What a coincidence! It really is a great idea and I have just about that many scarves too. They take up a lot more room than one would think!

Happy Easter!

kateprs said...

Agh, I've tried this before, but the scarves always slide to one end. Hope that doesn't happen for you!

Jill J @ Classy with a Kick said...

Welcome to the fun world of sharing a closet. Don't worry, you can start to take over after a little while. :)

I definitely need to do this with my scarves...such a great idea. And you can see them better which is what is most exciting to me! I forgot about all my scarves this winter because they were stuffed in a drawer.

Have a great weekend!

Juneli said...

hahaha, you are so funny, Heather! Sure, as I have a total of 3 scarves maybe and d let me know if you need belts as I have a min of 31 of those!:) I have a belt and a scarf organizer which i found at Walmart and it serves the purpose for now. BTW there is no space in my closet so I hang it at the back of my bedroom door! Looks a little clumsy but only to me and the hubby as no one else enters our bedroom and shuts the door!;)

Oh thank you for sharing this! My Ikea scarf/belt organiser is overflowing and I have been trying to think of a cheaper way to store my scarves than buying another one - I'll have to give this idea a try! :)

Congrats on your move in. I am afraid to count how many scarves I own. Love this idea and it's so much easier to find then how mine is stored today (in shopping bags all shoved in).

Emily {Isnt That Charming} said...

What a great idea! I have a clothing pole that I put all my scarves on, it's super convenient! I'll have to bookmark this for when I move though, I don't think many closets have an extra pole so I'll have to be prepared!

Cinz said...

Awww...you and Rex must be super excited to have Tom move in:D And wow...what a collection of scarves!!! I'm amazed at how hangers and curtain rings can help save you closet space:) An idea i will bear in mind;)

I've got an obsession of buying scarves too but i think i found someone who buys more than me,lol
I love the leopard print and the red/blue wavy print in the last photo!!!
