DIY Colorful Closet Organizer

Project organize everything before baby comes continues and today I’ve partnered with Tuesday Morning to help tidy up our small master bedroom closet. If you’re not familiar the store, each location carries a wide selection of quality products at huge savings. Think home decor, linens, kitchen goods, toys and even craft supplies.

While I was on a mission to find items to organize our closet, I also discovered that they sell adhesive vinyl (which I use all the time for DIY projects) and I even stumbled upon a Circut Explore machine at a great price! I’m always of fan of kitchen gadgets and my local store had a huge selection of cooking utensils but I did my best to stay focused because I was on a mission—finding items to help organize our closet!

I focused on both the closet/storage section and the bathroom aisle and purchased the following items:

  • Jewelry organizer for $14.99 each (compare at $24.99)
  • 25 pack of mint green velvet hangers for $9.99 (compare at $19.99)
  • Copper under self bins for 7.99 (compare at $16.99)
  • Coral acrylic bath tote for $9.99 (compare at $21.99)
  • Yellow storage bins tote for $4.99 each (compare at $12.99)
  • Coral shopping/storage tote for $5.99 each (compare at $12.99)
  • Pink step stool for $6.99 each (compare at $14.99)
  • Ivory and natural woven accent rug for $16.99 each (compare at $34.99)

The color palette of the items I purchased inspired me to use the same colors to transform the jewelry organizer into a colorful, multi-purpose closet organizer!

I grabbed a flat paint brush, craft paint and some painter’s tape and got to work! I chose to follow the lines of the canvas and paint the background in a colorblock style. The painter’s tape was used to temporarily hold the velcro loops up while I painted the background behind them.

While the paint dried, I got to work on the closet! First, I swapped out our miss-matched hangers for the velvet mint greens ones I purchased. I just loved how this instantly added a pop of color to the space. Then I sorted through my clothes and only hung up maternity and nursing friendly outfits while storing the rest.

Next up I tackled the shoe shelves. While the closet in our rental does have great built-in shelving, it unfortunately doesn’t provide enough storage to keep all our shoes tidy. Instead I opted to use the copper under self bins I purchased as additional shelving for my shoes. I’m keeping the shoes I currently wear the most in these bins for handy access and storing my other shoes underneath.

To finish the space, I add a bright pink step stool which is a necessity for reaching the items like our suitcases and my purses on the top shelves. It’s great because it folds flat and can be tucked away when not in use. And even though the closet is more of a step-in than a walk-in, I found a small accent rug that fit the space perfectly and I just love cozy and more finished it makes the space feel.
