I spent all day yesterday thinking it was just about to rain, so instead of going outside, I headed into the guest room to clean out the pile of crap in the party closet. It took hours and now I want to brag.
Unfortunately, I didn't take a "before" picture, but trust me when I say that it was a disaster. Six years worth of plastic bags and random wooden skewers falling all over the place, plus a big jumble of washed-but-not-ironed napkins shoved onto the top shelves.
The napkins still haven't been ironed, but now they're all neatly folded and living in a big plastic container under the guest bed. And the shelves, well, I'll let you see for yourself:
|It's not a huge closet, but big enough for an IKEA bookshelf that stores napkins and plates, plus extra room to the left for keg cups and random oversized glassware.|
|Yes, I have a lot of napkins from IKEA. No, I can't help myself when I go to the store. If I went today, I'd come home with even more. If TLC ever decides to make a show called "Napkin Hoarders" or "Extreme Napkining," I'm totally there.|
|Where there used to be cloth napkins, now there are pretty, colorful, unbreakable margarita glasses...|
|And pretty, uncluttered glass vases and plastic trays. BTW, I am prepared for any outdoor party challenge you can throw at me.|
