I have a husband who has a lot of...well...stuff. Hunting stuff. Dog parephanilia. There are leashes and brushes, bullets and earplugs. The seemingly endless amount of stuff can quickly take over my home until I came up with a solution.
We have an awkward, out of the way closet on the backside of our house right by our bedroom. It is the type of closet that would be appropriate for a front entryway. So why is it sooo far away? Who knows. So I decided to put it to some use.
Inside I stashed an old bookcase. I bought a few baskets at the dollar store and placed all of the loose hunting and dog supplies in the baskets. I used some upholstery tacks and taked some fabric to cover the cluttered mess so that no matter if my sweet hubby put his supplies away or not, all I have to see is that fabric. Fabric that I now see needs to be ironed and hung a wee bit better - but for a closet that is out of the way, it works. (But you bet your boots I'll soon be ironing it!)
Scents and Bullets.
Brushes and grooming tools. We also keep doggie medical supplies and their toothbrushes in there. Yes, he brushes their toofers.
I still need to add some labels for each basket.
