Easy and Inexpensive Closet Makeover
I don’t know about you, but I need to get something done every day or I feel a bit lazy.
I’m pretty happy with what I got done this Saturday!
I also cleaned up our porch, and I finally decluttered our coat closet!
This is our coat closet between our living room and our kitchen.
When we moved into the Blue Cottage, I shoved all kinds of boxes into the coat closet, and that’s what it still looked like after all this time.
Aside from our jackets and vests, Landon’s little golf bag is in there, tennis rackets, boxes full of items I need to photograph for my Etsy store, four hanging shoe organizers, and all kinds of other clutter.
I was sick of not being able to close the sliding doors because the closet was so filled up. After my bathroom closet makeover, I was itching to declutter this closet.

I did, and I made over the closet for just $20!
Here are inexpensive shoe organizers and wooden hangers you can buy on Amazon:
You can get this shoe organizer in different colors.
I wanted to get rid of the many different hangers we were using to make the coat closet look nice, plus these are the kind of hangers heavy jackets should hang on so they don’t get dented.
First, I took everything out of the closet and vacuumed it. Then I added the two new shoe organizers and started filling them with shoes I wanted to keep.
I ended up with a big bag of shoes I’m going to donate.
I hung the white hangers in the closet and started to hang the jackets we currently need. All the winter jackets are going into the attic.
This is what the cleaned-up, decluttered, organized closet looks like now!
I nailed a pretty hook on one side of the closet to keep all my scarfs in one spot from now on, and then I added several baskets to the shelf that will hold all kinds of odds and ends.
I love these wall hooks!
And since there was space, I also put my box full of ribbons on the shelf. Eventually I’ll paint over those screws — it’s on my never-ending DIY project list, ha!
This is what the shoes look like now, all organized.
I’m going to be on the lookout for two more of those new shoe organizers to make this look even nicer. And I’ll add a small area rug under the shoes for a pop of color.
I have more summer shoes and fancy shoe in my closet upstairs, but these are the ones we use more often.
This coat closet makeover only took an hour and $20, and I’m thrilled with the result. Onto the next closet!
We have several more that need a makeover.
