We don’t know about you, but we tend to do better on the closet cleaning

Because here’s the thing: We’re great at getting the closets organized. Fabulous, actually.

We have all the special organizing stuff and pretty baskets and can fold Barney’s-worthy stacks of sweaters.

And it will stay that way for awhile.

But then a huge load of dry cleaning comes in and we can’t tackle it right that second.

Our blog friend Albertina from Mimosa Lane participated in the One Room Challenge with a gorgeous, totally inspiring closet redo. And we are sure that after all her hard work that her closet is still just this pristine! (Love that paint color!)

So chic — and the little window seat is adorable! We bet she drinks champagne while she closet cleans too… Well, or mimosas!

So, we’re going to take a page from Albertina’s book and get elbow-deep in closet cleaning once again. Because everyone needs a fresh start every now and then, right?

What’s the state of your closet? Is it totally orderly a little bit messy?

Thanks for stopping by today. We always love it when you do!
