Coat Closet Update for Summer

I desperately needed to clean out our coat closet and get it summer ready!

Here is what we were working with...

For such a small closet we sure had everything PACKED in...  

Step one was to clean everything out and start with a blank slate...

It isn't a very functional coat closet because like I mentioned before... it is TINY... as in it is not even as wide as a HANGER!!!  So you have to tilt all the hangers to the side and the doors always pop open...

In the future we plan to build a proper entry to our house... to include a new coat closet and this wall will be opened up into a larger VERY open kitchen.

Anyway... back to the organization.

Look what I found in the closet. YES 24 bottles of sunscreen!!! WHAT??? How does that even happen??

After some purging this is what we were left with. Large winter coats have been placed in a bin in the attic and the beach towels and pool bag have officially made their appearance!

Top shelf holds extra K-cups & travel cups (they use to be down in the basement but this is so much more functional as we go through a lot of coffee!!), an emergency lantern (just in case), and our pool towels (so they are easily accessible)

The bottom holds a bin with Emma's roller-blades/pads, yoga mat, label maker, gloves/hats, swiffer/swifferpads, gold umbrella, and the pool bag.

I also screwed this organizer into one of the side walls. It holds a sunscreen, ice scraper, and sewing kit.

So happy that this is now organized and checked off my task list for May.
