Not that we’ve had almost a week of spring weather, I’m starting to get the urge to clean everything in our house. One thing that’s been driving me particularly crazy is the back of our closet door. I’ve been using it to store both hoodies and scarves all winter and it’s getting a little, or a lot, out of control.
I started by removing everything and sorting out a few scarves to get rid of or move to the coat closet because they were more “warm with a coat” than “outfit accessories.” Then, I needed a new place to put them.
I already had this pretty scarf hanger. It was a gift from my mother-in-law a year or so ago I think.
But we’re already short on rod space in the closet so I didn’t want to hang it up. (I have a lot of dresses, a lot, a lot a lot of dresses.) So, I decided to use the available wall space. Why not, right? Plus, the scarves slip out fairly easily since they are pretty slippery, so I didn’t want to be constantly bumping them while putting things off and on of the hangers nearby.
So, I asked Wyatt to give me a nice nail to hang the hanger on. He decided on a screw, with a drywall anchor. They way the hanger won’t slip off a small nail head.
It’s pretty high up on the wall, but I’m a pretty tall gal so it works for me.
Plus, I can always lift the entire thing off the screw and then select or replace the scarf I want before hanging it back up if I can’t quite reach the entire thing while it’s up there.
I originally wanted to make a clothespin scarf hanger like this one I found on pinterest, but decided it wasn’t that different than the hanger I already had on hand so I could just save time and have a better solution without having to build anything. If I had enough wall space to hang something like this lower down on the wall, I think it was really cute, though.
Still cute, right? What else could I hang up with something like this? Maybe something for Beanie?
And the door looks so much better!
I did go ahead and hang the hanger back on the door so I could hang my new robe. Wyatt got it for me for Valentine’s Day and let me tell you, it’s a necessary thing for pregnant mommas in winter. A lot of my warmer clothes are getting too snug on my belly, but this thing is roomy, forgiving, soft, and warm. Ah, comfort…
And one robe on the door is a lot better than what we started with.
How do you handle scarves? I’m always curious as to the best way to handle accessories because I’m the kind of girl that doesn’t wear them if I can’t easily see and access them. That’s why I go through phases of wearing jewelry. I just forget about all the cool stuff I have in my jewelry box.
I also do better at accessorizing in warmer weather. Anyone else have that odd personality quirk?
