Days of the Week Closet Organizers

Hey y’all.  I know it seems like school just got out, but I am really trying to get some projects completed that have been on my list forever.  Today, as part of DecoArt’s core blogging team, I am sharing how to solve one of my family’s biggest problems… school clothes!  I am hoping to really ease some stressful mornings with these Days of the Week Closet Organizers!

This project was a must for this mama.  See, my youngest daugter, La La, is a little particular about her clothing.  She only likes to wear certain things and would wear her favorites every day if I would let her! She could care less what anyone thinks, which will be a  great… one day!

You may remember seeing her from the quick and easy striped workbench tutorial.  Yep… she’d happily wear those colorful shorts every single day, even if they were never washed!  You can imagine that our school mornings are not always the most fun part of our day, but by laying out our clothes at the beginning of the week, things should be looking up!  I am praying that these clothing dividers will really make a difference for us.

The clothing organizers are made with Americana Chalkboard paint.  It works perfectly with our changing schedule.  For our kids, their related arts change every month, so it will be so helpful to be able to change out which activity on which day.  No more last minute changes!

I am crossing my fingers and toes that this will help La La and I with choosing her clothes.  Do you have any tips or tricks that you’d share with us?  We’d love to hear about it!

    These are all such great ideas!!! I’m totally going out to purchase some chalkpaint tomorrow so I can make these planning hangers for my niece and nephew to start the new school year! I’m so excited, I love the idea! I would have loved to have this when I was a kid–I arranged my clothing in perfect order by day of the week, but I love having a visual. Super fab lunch and homework stations too! TFS your inspiring creations and ideas!
