You may have heard me mention that my parents recently moved…NINE HOURS AWAY. Oh yes. It’s been a bit of an adjustment from living less than half an hour from them, that’s for sure! But they’ve always wanted to retire to the mountains, and that’s what they were finally able to do! Exciting times!
Their new house in the North Georgia mountains is very cottage-esque – there is a space right behind the house and in between the mountain that’s behind the house that I’m DYING to get my hands on and turn into a little shady English garden…but that’s not what this post is about! (I DO get distracted by that little shady spot!)
The house is a 3-bedroom 1.5 bath, with a living room, dining room, kitchen, laundry room, a bonus room off the laundry room, a 2-car garage, and a bonus room off the garage! It’s “vintage”, so it’s got all those great nooks and crannies…and it’s not so great on closet space. So when we took our first trip up to see my parents at the beginning of the summer, my mom requested some organizational help with her two large closets: the hall closet and the bathroom closet.
It hadn’t been long since they moved when we got there, so these closets were still in the shape all closets are in soon after you move. “Oh, I’m not sure where to put this, so, for now, I’ll just put it in the closet.” I know y’all know what I mean, right?!
