Master Bath Linen Closet {Reveal}

So at last I have finished one of my many projects from this past weekend. I have conquered the dreaded linen closet in our master bathroom!

Yes it looks all pretty now, but that was so not the case last week. 
Here are a couple of before pics:


Everything was just thrown in our linen closet with no order whatsoever! You can even see that I started collecting some organizing baskets, but never made the time to actually use them. I got so sick of trying to dig through mounds of lotions, medicines, hair supplies, etc. I NEEDED a change!!

First Up....Clear Out Everything!
(That looks so much better already!)

All supplies were everywhere.....bathroom counter, bedroom floor, on the master bed and into the upstairs hallway. It was amazing to see all that I had accumulated over 4 years of living here! Gee-sh!


Next Step was to get all my containers into one location and decide what would be going in them. 

During this process, I started getting a little overwhelmed by all the stuff I had! I got a little distracted with choosing a paint color for the downstairs entryway. You can read about that here. I had 9 paint samples and I was only going to use 1 for downstairs. What a waste of paint and MY Money! So I had an idea....(I told you I get distracted easily). I decided to use one of my paint samples from Sherwin Williams that I wasn't going to be using downstairs. Have you ever seen Sherwin Williams paint samples? I would hardly call it a sample! 

So you guessed it.....I ended up painting the inside of my linen closet using Collonade Grey.

I know I am crazy...but it does look purrrrr-tay!!!

While I was watching the paint dry (literally), I got a second wind and organized all my bathroom supplies into the baskets and organizing bins.

First Aid stuff in one, Medicine in another! (I swear we are never sick! It just looks like it!)

Beauty Travel Supplies in one, Lotions and SPF in another!

I also found these little canvas beauties for $4.99 at Target. These house all of my everyday items that I can grab quickly.

I was almost finished, but wanted to add a little more of my OCD to the project. How about a little Martha?

Yep...I labeled those son of a guns and they didn't even know what happened!
(It looks like a kid wrote on them! Have you ever tried to write with regular chalk?)

I organized so much, that I even had a little room on the bottom shelf for a small tray I picked up at Goodwill long ago for $2.00!
Ain't she pretty?

Okay, I have held you off long enough.

How about some After Pics!!!??

What do you think? I am pretty pumped! I think I am done organizing closets for a little while. On to Big and Better Things! I love the outcome, but closets really get on my nerves! :)
