Dolls used to be stacked precariously on one another.
I thought this unit would help but the shelves weren't deep enough and could only hold a few dolls.
So, I moved the rest of the boxed dolls to my closet. The top shelf used to be filled with t-shirts and linens and the pants used to spread across the entire bar.
These dolls are "unwashed" ones from the thrift store and live in the box underneath the cherry vanity. They'll get washed eventually. Probably.
The right side of the closet, which held only a few play sets, still was overcrowded since I had to stuff it full of clothing that used to be on the left side.
These are the bookcases in my office and I knew that I wanted this to be the focal point for my boxed dolls since it has the deepest shelves.
After much cleaning and wavering over what to give away, here is my newly organized collection.
Left side of office
Only the right side will get boxed dolls. Once I fill up the space, I'll have to de-box something before I will buy something else. Left side is full of fashion items on the top two shelves. Third shelf is really free for anything and the bottom shelves have craft paper and accessories.
Making use of my home made wardrobe!
Right side of office
Colored boxes and rolling cart are full of craft supplies.
Center of office
Craft supplies and binders for doll clothes. Seven of the binders are currently empty though.
Corner of bedroomBlue boxes are full of dolls standing upright. Office Max boxes are full of foam, backgrounds and older toys. The black shelves didn't work for dolls but they were great for my games and old movies. I was even able to stuff more storage boxes in there.
Left wall of bedroomMy storage bins are pretty full of accessories but I could squeeze some more junk in there. Those are mostly clothing packs on top and they haven't fell over yet, so I'm good.
Inside closetEven though I moved all the boxed dolls to the office, I still had a crap load of play sets squirreled away and they now can spread out a bit more. Most of my Gloria and Fancy Life sets were FREE using my Amazon Reward points!
And thus concludes spring cleaning! At this point, the only places that don't have doll junk in them are the bathroom and the kitchen. Hopefully, I can keep it that way.
