Thrifty Fix: Scarfing Solutions

August 5, 2009

  In an attempt to be neat and tidy, I’ve always stored my scarves in a little basket on my vanity shelf.

However, as I’ve worked the scarves into more and more outfits lately, I’ve grown tired of digging through the mess of silks and satins to sling a wrinkled and creased number around my neck.   I was suddenly hit with a burst of inspiration as I pondered a storage solution that would allow them to hang, but without buying a silly customized hanging system that I’d have to bury in my [tiny] closets. 

No more than ten minutes later – ten! – inspiration had met reality.  How?  I snagged some extra plastic shower-curtain-hanging-hoops that I had laying around, sewed them onto a strip of blue and brown ribbon that matched my office/guest room palette, affixed the end of the ribon to the top of a closet door, and voila –  my scarves were not only hanging, but decorative.

I threaded the scarves through the hooks and stood back, camera in hand, to admire my handywork.  My scarves may not all be color coordinated to match the scene in the room, but they add a bit of personal flair to the room, and allow me to see all my choices so I can hopefully utilize them even more.  Hooray for a quick and cheap scarf solution that anyone – really, anyone – can do!
