More Dressing Room Storage

Earlier this year I showed you my dressing room organization project. Today I've got another installment for you!
As you know I've accumulated a number of hats this summer and I was running out of places to store them. I love looking at them and have been wanting to hang them on the wall for some time. The only problem was that I didn't want to litter the wall with nail holes only to have to refill them when I get around to decorating this room.

3M Hooks with Command Adhesive was my solution!! This product is genius! I first used it backstage at a show I did earlier this year to hang costumes on the wall for quick changes. (Note: I have not been perked for this post by 3M in any way.) They're super easy to use and come with extra adhesive strips so I can move the hooks around if I need to re-arrange my hats.
I only bought a few packages to start, but when funds allow I'll be buying more to add to the hat wall.

What do you think?

For those of you who are interested, I bought these guys. They're less than $5 a package at Home Depot.

Hats that have not found a home on the wall are being stored in a few baskets in the closet as well as a few hat boxes I've got. This one was a gift from my friend Jen for my birthday. I've been meaning to show it to you!

I've also re-jigged how I store my shoes. I used to keep all of my shoes in thier boxes stacked on this shelf, but I never seemed to put them back into the box and back onto the shelf, leaving my floor strewn with shoes and boxes. Nixing the boxes was the clear solution. Now I'll be rotating my winter and summer shoes. And I've found that the shoes always make it back onto the shelf in a timely manner! The basket on the floor next to the door in full of flats.

I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner!

Now I'm working on/thinking about a storage solution for my large purses. A pile of purses on the floor has replaced the pile of shoes as of late.
Any suggestions?



  1. Wow. I think you have more shoes in just that rack, than I have had in my entire life! LOL!

  2. Love your hat wall!

    As for purse storage suggestions, I keep mine on small shelves. I sort them by size and colour. To keep them upright (especially clutches) I use book ends, which also prevents them from falling off the end of a shelf.

  3. Kate - thank you! Love the book end idea! I've been thinking about adding shelves to the wall...I'm just running out of wall space! I've got my treadmill in this room as well. It folds up, but does take up a lot of room! Maybe a long shelf above the window? Now you've got me thinking! :)

    Wolfsong - lol!! you made me blush! I've got winter shoes and boots in thier boxes in my basement too! This is only 1/2 to 2/3 of my shoe collection...what can I say? I'm addicted!

  4. I have storage issues too will be posting ny ideas soon as I get time.I am loving your row of red shoes.I have my bags hanging up... now stay tuned and you will see.

  5. Nelly - I will be watching for sure! And thank you! I have an obssession with red shoes.

  6. Hey that's brilliant! I adore your hats!! Where did you find that amazing floral one!?? I've got about 30 all heaped inside 2 hat boxes and I'm quite sure they're unhappy about it!
