How long has it been since I posted about stenciling my closet??? Too long to remember, right?
January 2012 to be exact. I just went back and looked.
That was nearly 2 children ago.
Sometimes my implementation of projects can be good, but my blog post follow up is apparently lacking. Which is funny since 99% of my projects start out as projects because I think “That would be a good blog post!”
I’m backwards. In so many ways.
As you can imagine… a house full of boys means only one thing. This place is busting at the seems with boy themed everything – Spiderman, Robots, Tonka Trucks and Choo Choo Trains.
Which is why I love my closet so very very much.
I feel like it’s one of the only spaces in our home that screams, “A GIRL LIVES HERE!!” It might be a small 8×8 space, but it’s all I need to make me feel like the female population didn’t die off and leave me stranded living with humans that only grow male parts. #truestory
The giant fabric jewelry cork board was another Pinterest inspired project. It’s a great place to display all of my necklaces and it makes it easy to pick out which one I want to wear. I think it might just be the reason I accessorize more.
It’s pretty life changing when you can actually SEE your jewelry instead of having to dig through a drawer to find something.
I have a gazillion and eighty seven pair of shoes. But doesn’t every woman? My husband says no, but I disagree.
And seriously, his shoe obsession is worse than mine. If he’d ever get around to cleaning up his closet…I’d show you that I’m not lying.
I like choices. Especially sparkly and bright choices. Or shoes that make a statement like the black suede lace booties.
Something unique you’ll find in my closet – besides my dog who hides out with me when the boys are running around like they are going to tackle me because I’m refusing to play Power Rangers – is MY GUITAR!
In fact, my closet houses about 3 different guitars if you count all the guitars my boys now own. We might just start a family band. Beware.
Now when Klaya and I are hiding out…instead of bringing my laptop with me…I just shut the door and start playing some music. The only downfall to this is that it makes my secret spot a little less secret when I’m loudly strumming a song.
This space is truly why I love getting dressed in the mornings. And so far the boys aren’t catching on yet that I spend a lot of time in here. Sooooooo, I’ll keep disappearing to the closet until they notice it’s becoming a trend.
Where’s your favorite place to
hide from kids take some quiet time?
