Several posts back I promised to show you my closet "solution". For many of us that live in teeny tiny apartments or urban spaces, our closets just aren't big enough for everything we need to shove in there. So in addition to my built-in closet, a month ago or so, my husband and I finally added on to our closet space by putting up a closet system along two of the walls in our bedroom. I have to say it has been quite a success. Although my shoe racks are full to the max (if I get one more pair I will be out of room again), it is nice to have a lot of our belongings out in a well-lit (thanks to my hubby's industrial light DIY!) and organized space.
Instead of making one large post of my closet, I thought it best to show it in pieces (a mini-series, if you will) so it's not so overwhelming for me to take pictures. Today I'm starting off my closet series with my hat racks. If you know me personally, or have seen my outfit posts, you know I'm a little bit quirky and I love myself a fabulous hat (especially if it is vintage). Instead of having my hats piled on top of each other in a bin (that was my old solution) we added racks so I can see them and reach them easily. I still keep my knit hats in a bin, but these hooks work wonderfully for my bulkier hats.
What do you think?
Stay tuned for the next piece, although I haven't decided yet what it will be. :)
*vintage Sonni of California hat - this is from the 1950's and I bought it in pristine condition with the original price tags still on it*
*top hooks: vintage 1940's red Neumann Endler wool bowler hat & brown Panama-style hat.
bottom hooks: fuzzy black beret & pinstripe cap (this one reminds me of my gramps because he used to wear caps like this every single day with suspenders too!)*
