How I Organize My Bed Linens

I showed How I Organize My Bathroom,
 and How I Organize My Drawers, so today
I'll show how I store and organize
my bed linens in the bedroom.
I have this huge armoire cabinet in the 
bedroom that is opposite the bed. I had
 been looking for one that, not only had lots
 of cabinet storage, but drawers as well.
 I could use drawers in place of a dresser. 
I finally found this one on Craigslist for $250
 and they threw in the 36" TV because they 
were getting a new one. A good deal!
This was just what I needed.
 It's all solid wood and very heavy. I plan to
 paint it or at least change the hardware as
 soon as I find something I like...at a bargain.
 You've see how I filled the top with quilts
 in this post, Decorating With Quilts.
 The cabinet on the left side holds all the
 sheets and pillowcases.
 I moved them out of the bathroom closet 
because it made more sense to store them
 here in the bedroom,
 I don't think of these things all at once. 
Sometimes it's a 'duh' moment. 
Know what I mean?
 I keep the top sheets on one shelf and 
the fitted  bottom sheets below. I have
 lots of pillowcases. I like to mix and match. 
I fold everything in half then in thirds 
so that the folded smooth edge
 shows out and it keeps everything neat.
 I made a few lavender sachets for the linen
cabinet using my Mother's vintage hankies.
note: Loose lavender stored in a tennis can.
 A pile of loose lavender in the center.
 Tied into a bundle with ribbon.
This sweet little reminder sits on the shelf. 

Cheers!

  7. Everything is so neat and perfectly folded...I needed that inspiration! And, the lavender in your mother's hankies is such a sweet and perfect touch! By the way, I found you through Dwellings, The Heart of Your Home- Amaze Me Monday.

  8. You certainly are little Ms Organizer! You armoire cabinet is gorgeous, what a find. The upstairs of the Charmer has NO storage, it's such a struggle to finds places for everything that needs a home.

  10. Hi, I love how you store your linens. I wish I had an armoire like that. I can only keep two sets of linens at a time because I have no storage in my home. Congratulations on your feature too.
