Mission Organization: Week 5 - A Place For My Scarves

Until this week my scarves really didn't have their own place. I had them stashed in different places, and when I wanted to wear one, first I had to find it, then I usually had to take time to press it with the iron because it had been crushed in its hiding place. After my little project this week all my scarves have their own place to hang.

Some of my scarves had been slung around hangers and stuffed in the closet between my coats and jackets.

Others had been stuffed into a small drawer in the back of my closet.

I decided it was time to organize the scarves all in one place. I bought an ordinary curtain rod and a package of shower rings. (I ended up going back for another pack of shower rings because I didn't realize I had so many scarves!)

One side of my closet is for hanging clothes and the opposite wall is just blank. On this wall I installed the curtain rod and added the shower hooks. So simple.

Now all the scarves are in view, not crushed by clothes and easy to grab from a ring.

It's good to know that just in case my scarf obsession gets out of hand, now I know how to deal with them. I can install another curtain rod and add some more shower rings.


  1. i've also seen this done by putting several shower rings on a coathanger, so that you can hang multiple scarves from one coathanger. similar concept, just takes less space if you don't have enough closet space to do it the way you've shown here.

  2. That is a great idea!! It looks great!!

  3. If only I had a spare wall in my wardrobe to do this. Great idea!!!

  4. I wish I had a place for such a rod. You really aced with that idea.

  5. Awesome idea! Wish I had somewhere to put up something like that (all my scarves are folded in a drawer where I can't see them!)

  6. great use! i have this on my to do list too! I had them on a shelf & then switched them to over a hanger but not working so moving on to plan c - like your CLEAR shower rings - nice addition! xo


  7. Hi, Anita, I love your idea and choice of materials! Great post! I just came over from Serendipity and Spice Manic Monday, because now in winter I am in serious need of some scarf organization myself..

  8. So clever!! What a great way to be able to see your scarves! Thanks for sharing with us at Link It Up Thursday.
