Yesterday was my son’s twelfth birthday (Happy Birthday Jackson!), so I decided to “surprise” him with a clean closet. (Yes, I know that sounds nuts, but it’s been making both of us crazy, and I just couldn’t figure out what to do with all those Nerf Guns!) However I recently saw this brilliant idea on how to store those crazy things, and it works!
So, get ready (this is a little painful!) for the ridiculous-out-of-control-I-can’t-believe-I’m-showing-you-this-before picture . . .
(Yup, I’m mortified too, but we’re keeping it real here, right?)
And here, my friends, is the after (Ta-daaaaaaaaa!)
WOW! Why didn’t I think of using a hamper before for all those Nerf guns? I thought that the hamper and two bins from Target would easily hold more toys than just Nerf guns, but there is nothing but Nerf guns there. (If anyone buys the boy another Nerf Gun I may have to confiscate it!)
This took me all of about 30 minutes to do, because while it looks horrible, it was all Nerf Guns! I’m so happy with the finished project, and am seriously wondering why I waited three years to tackle that disaster. (I’ve tried a time or two, really, I just haven’t had a good plan in the works.)
I would love any tips on what to do with old baseball jerseys, t-shirts, etc. that have special meaning (like the kindergarten t-shirts with all the kid’s artwork on them?) as now I have them all hanging on once side of the closet and can’t decide whether to let them go or come up with a way to re-purpose them. If you have any tips, please leave a comment to share!
Thanks for the clever idea, The Happy Housewife! Check out more of my favorite fluffing up ideas over on Pinterest. If you have a blog and have done a little fluffing in your home, I’d love to see it, so leave your link in the comments section. Also, if there’s a craft you’ve seen on a website that you’re hoping to make, feel free to share that link as well (I’m always looking for new ideas!)
