Yikes!

I know I’m a bit quirky when it comes to organizing. I’ve shared before that I will stop movies, family time, whatever is happening to get control of a disorganized space.

I would sit in my chair to relax at night and it stood there looming.

Even though the door was closed, hiding the messy secret – it would get into my mind and under my skin. The result was that I could no longer relax at the end of my day knowing what was lurking behind that door.

Medicine bottles everywhere, too many towels that we honestly don’t use, and disorganization all over the place.

It was too deep and it left the closet difficult to keep straight.

Then I stumbled upon this Buffalo Check Decorator Paper and inspiration struck! Here’s how we turned the cluttered into a clean space we can all enjoy.

  1. That is a great question! These are adhesive strips that you can apply to your wall that have the capability of being removed without taking off the wall paint or leaving any marks! I love these things!

  2. just happened to read this — and thought….”hmmm, it’s snowing, things are cancelled today — read through the linen closet/hall closet redo, and decided to use some of the great ideas. like the harder containers rather than softer large canvas bags. can’t wait to quickly make the change! thank you so much…..stay well

  3. It’s a decorator paper – sort of like a giant poster for us decor lovers! I am loving the updated look!

  4. Wait – I am fascinated – you hung the wallpaper with command strips!??! Makes sense that the shelving helps keep everything in place as well. GENIUS!!
