Organization for a "purse-aholic"...and it's not me : )

While you're waiting for the the big "reveal" of Sara's bedroom, I thought I would show you an idea I dreamed up out of desparation... a way to store all her purses. I love you Sara. : )



As you can see, they are all hanging above her clothes. Just went to the hardware store, had a piece of pipe cut, bought hardware for hanging a closet rod, and installed. Then, hung shower curtain hooks on key rings (also purchased from hardware store). The key rings allow the purses to hang in the right direction. Feel free to duplicate in your home. : )

Wow, that is a great idea! I' wondering if I could do something like that. I have a few of those things too, maybe not as many as Sara. She's a gal after my heart.
That's great that she's home while in school. I miss my kids so much. They are both 6 hours away...in different directions.

Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog. I just love all the pics on yours, and LOVE the damask pattern on your daughter's bedroom walls! Very "Paris"! :)

Blessings,

This is such a fantastic idea!! I've read that hanging them is best, but this is a neat way to store a large collection up out of the way.

Hey, this is AWESOME!!! : )
I never thought of that, and really, I'm sorta ashamed at how I've used and abused them by tossin' em up on my shelf like that!
