We don't have one. In this large house we are renting, a linen closet doesn't exist. Oh, there is a tiny head knocker over the toilet, but where do we store towels, bedding, blankets, and other things that don't have a home? It's maddening. NO LINEN CLOSET.
Hubs is wonderful. He does all the laundry and hangs up all my shirts. The pants, socks, undies, towels, bed linens, etc. go in a laundry basket and sits on the floor of our bathroom or closet. I'm terrible at putting these away, I mean HE washed them right? :-) But there really was NO PLACE for the towels or linens to go. So, I turned to my inspiration - Pinterest. I found that a nice armoire would be perfect, but since we are renting, I really didn't want to spend the money. I found a bookshelf at IKEA that would do the trick. Yes, the open shelving would look lovely.
This is the BORGSJO bookcase and it only cost $65.00
I found all kinds of inspiration on how to style the shelves. These are so pretty!
Remember when I said that I'm terrible at putting things away? Well, the shelf got built and stood empty for a while. Then things started to migrate onto it. Mostly Hubs putting things on it. SO, now it looks like this:
It's a big fat FAIL
So my weekend project is to get this folded, fabulous and functional! And to find a new home for Hub's shoes. Like the closet.
