Wrapping Paper and Ribbon; Not just for gifts anymore!

Upon deciding that my closet needed a little "dressing up,"
I began the hunt for the perfect wrapping paper.

Yep, wrapping paper!

Thrilled to come across this pattern at Hallmark,
I picked up a roll for $3.99 and got to work.

My goal was to create a boutique feel in my little space.
Throughout my home, I have tried to stick to neutrals
and worked to create a modern (yet traditional) beachy feel
(if that makes any sense!).

However, my closet is a place where I can be totally girly.
Bring on the pink roses!


Using thumb tacks, I lined the back wall of my built-in shelving.
A roll of butterfly ribbon from Michael's finished off the look;
I simply attached it to the shelf fronts with my staple gun.

(Click on pictures to enlarge.)

Using items from around the house, I created an
accessories display area.

Earrings fit perfectly in the little egg crate
that I picked up last year at Anthro.
Random jewelry is elevated on a miniature cake stand
(I think I found the clear votive holders at the dollar store.)

For pretty yet practical headband storage,
I used a glass serving bowl.
Belts and miscellaneous accessories also fit inside.


For jewelry display, my husband installed a new
(i.e. larger) version of my necklace organizer.
He even cut out around the light switch plate,
maximizing every square inch of wall space.

I love that I can actually see every piece now!


I have to say, my new "boutique inspired"
closet definitely keeps me more organized.

Who would want to make a mess in such a cute little spot?

(Let's just see how it looks on Sunday morning.
For some reason, that is the day I feel
the need to change outfits 700 times.
Needless to say, lots of clothes end up on the floor.)
