Pintertest Kitchen 23: $10 Linen Closet Makeover
I saw this pinned a few weeks ago.
In all my pregnant, frantic, nesting splendor.
I had to make it happen.
Our sheets have bugged me since we moved into our house over 2 years ago.
They were all over the place.
In separate bedrooms.
In baskets under beds.
In the garage laundry area.
I get hives thinking about it.
We never had a true linen closet in our old house.
And though we had space for one in the new house, I never made it happen.
Until last week.
And I couldn't be happier with the results.
It makes me want to change sheets more.
Or at all.
Until I remember my rapidly growing lop-sided alien belly which makes walking difficult.
Much less pulling that Cal King fitted beast over our pillow top.
So I mostly just stare at my closet.
It's just so pretty.
And was very easy to put together.
About 45 minutes, start to finish.
We're going to have to talk about the Dollar Tree for a second.
I will confess I have issues that I can't really explain.
It just all seems too good to be true.
I feel like $1 dish soap can't possibly work the same way $3 dish soap can.
And it's not worth the $2 to figure out why.
And I just don't trust $1 flea medication.
And don't get me started on shampoo.
I can handle baskets.
I bought ten.
And was out the door for $10.90.
I had the tags and ribbon at home.
So that's all I spent.
If you don't have tags and ribbon on hand, you can pick them up at any arts and crafts store.
I got these at Michael's a while ago.
It's a small closet.
With lots of non-dollar store products.
That were easily moved up higher or relocated to our bathroom closet.
Isn't he cute?
I'm a firm believer that dotting your lettering makes everything right with the world.
And makes any handwriting glorious.
You can also print labels or use stamps.
Simply tie your tag to your basket with coordinating ribbon.
Or be rebellious.
Whatever you want.
The original pinner used a combo of lime green and light blue baskets which I loved.
Our Dollar Tree only had lime green and a very Christmas-y red.
And $1 flea medication.
I'm all for celebrating Jesus's birthday.
But I feel like it would have been a bit much.
A super organized and super functional linen closet.
Everything in one place.
All for $10.
Thank you, Dollar Tree.
I take back some of the things I say about you.
But you can keep your shampoo.
This month is special.
My friend Katy is giving away this cute print to one lucky linker.
