Oh my… A peek into my linen closet.

December 2, 2010

This is unknown territory for me.  Its been one of those “I’ll get to it next week” kinna things. If the kids need a blanket, they all come falling down.  

Im a little embarrased to show this area, BUT there are great “after” pictures & it feels good checking it off my list of things to do! 

What do your linen closets look like?


I took (almost) everything out and vacuumed the floor.

I have an attraction to quilts, pottery barn & shabby chic bedding

All nice & neatly organized. I wonder how long it will last?

This is what will go in my annual garage sale, in the spring.  There is a ton of pottery barn bedding, etc. My 12 year old said this evening.. “Pretty soon, we are not going to have anything left!”  (I think she may be right).

Doesn’t it look pretty now?

I only kept 2 extra sets of sheets per bed.  Thats a good rule of thumb.

I still have my 12 year olds Lizzy Mcguire suitcase. My 3 year old uses it now.

One more time…




This only took me 1 hour to complete.  If I can do it, you can do it!

  1. It looks great! What a difference! I am {very} interested in what bedding you have for your garage sale? You can email me if you would like… Paris has the Pottery Barn {green} French Rose bedding, but I use the Shabby Chic drapery {the dupioni silk} Anyhow, I would love to purchase some things, or anything you think may match? I love mixing the mint green and pink…

    I so need to do this. We have 4 beds. Two queen & 2 toddler. The problem is, I like crisp cotton sheets & my hubby likes soft sheets. I had to buy 2 sets of flannel sheets this winter to make him happy. I guess I could keep 2 flannel & two cotton. I think I’ll clean out my linen closet this weekend.
