Pinterest Win – Simple Scarf Organization

You may remember my little Pinterest To-Do List I posted last week. Well, I’m happy to report that I’ve crossed one off the list!

Simple Scarf Organization

I said this: Now that I finally have some cute scarves, I thought I should have them organized in some way other than draped across the coat rack, door knob, chair and floor of my closet. When I happened to run across this idea, I got unreasonably excited. I mean, who gets so excited about shower curtain rings on a hanger? That would be me. Now, let’s see if I actually do it, and, more importantly, if my scarves still get left on the coat rack, doorknob, chair & closet floor.

I did actually do it, so that’s a start. I still have two scarves on the coat rack, but that’s because it is freaking cold here this week, and I need those babies every single time I go outside. They have made it back to the fancy scarf hanger whenever it warms up, so I feel like this is something I can keep up with on a regular basis.

Here’s mine!

Now, for the issues…

First I tried this on a regular hanger, and that little guy just couldn’t handle the load. Even doing half of the rings on one hanger made it droop pretty bad. So I ended up using one of those heavy duty plastic coat hangers (the that are as big around as a thumb).

I’m also having trouble keeping them from all going to one side and hanging down to the floor. I’m actually keeping it in the closet (just took it out to get this photo), and it’s kind of annoying that I can’t get them to stay upright. I’m considering adding some kind of small weight to the middle, but I haven’t figured out the best way to do this yet. Will keep you updated, because I’m sure everyone is on pins and needles about the state of my scarf storage!

Also, I’d like to say…

Happy Birthday!

to My Mama. You are the most amazing lady in the world, and I feel so lucky that I can call you my friend as well as my mom. I love you!
