The cubbies were perfect for shoes and sweatshirts and pants (like jeans and weekend khakis). It also is the right height for capturing all that space under the hanging shirts.
The key to this project was to completely clear out the space and then load it back in with lots of thought and purpose. While you are doing this, it is the perfect opportunity to pull out things that either don’t belong, don’t fit, or aren’t used.
Set a timer for 45 minutes, put on some good music, and challenge yourself!
