For years now, I’ve been hanging my thick woollen scarves on a single clothes hanger.
While this was adequate as a means of keeping my scarves off the floor of our wardrobe, it was hardly what I would call a proper ‘storage solution.’ My scarves would always be tangled and I could never grab one in a hurry (which is often, since I tend to be running late 90% of the time).
So during my pre-James nesting stage, I was quite keen to sort out my winter scarves.
I tried the IKEA Komplement multi-hanger first, but soon realised that it was better suited to my thinner scarves – the holes just weren’t big enough for my chunky knit scarves.
Then one day as I sat on the end of my bed staring at my wardrobe (as you do), it dawned on me: a shoe hanger! It wouldn’t take up much space width-wise and each compartment would offer just the right amount of space for one or two of my chunky scarves.
I couldn’t understand why I hadn’t thought of it before.
The above is the result, and I have to say, my scarves and I are all pretty stoked.
(Incidentally, I picked up a wider shoe hanger than the one above from IKEA and I’ve since installed it in our shoe cupboard and have used it to organise the boys’ shoes. Very happy with that one too.)
