It has moved back into scarf season here. I was never a big scarf wearer but the influence of BBeingCool and StylingYou have meant that I got a little braver. Plus it gets pretty chilly here in the middle of Winter so snuggly scarves have become a “must have” item instead of just a fashion accessory.
I have a small collection of scarves that is slowly growing but had all been shoved into a shelf in my wardrobe. Then jumpers and pashminas and hats had been shoved on top and I couldn’t find ANYTHING, let alone the one scarf that I needed NOW to wear on the school run.
Enter two hooks and a pole.
Yes. That simple.
The hooks are 3M Removable hooks because I like to think I’ll be able to remove the hooks without the paint later. These were the largest ones I could find to accommodate the width of the pole.
The pole is just a piece of 1cm wooden dowel that we used at some point in the past in the window tracks of the bedroom – makeshift security system!
So I measured up from the floor for my first hook and attached it. Then sat the pole into place and positioned the other hook, measuring up from the floor once more to make sure it was all even. DIY Scarf Organiser done!
Next came the fun part: tipping all the scarves, pashminas, hats and jumpers off the shelf onto the floor. Some sorting and the scarves went onto my new storage pole, the scratchy poncho/cardy that I’ve worn once went into the donation bag, and everything else was folded back onto to the shelf.
Love it when an organisation task is going to make my days easier!
