Not gonna lie, I am borderline embarrassed to show you guys the before pictures of my closet. It was baddddddd. I have needed, for a long time, to get a better closet organization system in place. However, this is not my area of expertise. I am a pretty organized person and I am a very clean person, but for some reason, my closet was always a pig stye and I could never keep it organized. I knew I needed a fresh set of eyes (someone who KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE DOING) to come in and fix this closet chaos situation.
My dear friend Essense now has her own professional organizing and closet organization business and so, my birthday present to myself in August was that I hired her to come in and organize my closet for me!
Here is the before closet situation… It was bad. 😐
BEFORE. What a mess.
And VOILA!! AFTER!!!!!
Scarves and belts now neatly hanging on the back of the door!
Now that we have a system in place, it is just SO MUCH EASIER for me to see everything and know what I have in my closet. I’m wearing more of what I own and reaching for items I haven’t worn in awhile.
A couple of the things Essense did that made such a huge difference:
The only thing left to do is I REALLY want to switch out the fluorescent light fixture. I have found a couple online, but my fear is that the light fixture won’t be an easy thing to switch out. My husband replaced our kitchen light fixture last year and it turned out to be a huge project because of some wiring issues in our house. We will get to it eventually, but it’s just not high on the priority list right now. (Have any of you ever switched out a fixture in a closet????)
Anyway! Hiring Essense was THE BEST DECISION EVER and now I want to hire her to come organize #alltheclosets. Well, really just my kid’s closets because they are also a disaster.
I love, love, love my refreshed and organized closet and I’m so grateful to Essense for having the skills to help me!
What about you? Have you ever hired a professional organizer? Have you done any organization projects yourself recently?
