Here is my "closet" area:
To the left of my couch is the little blue table, as mentioned in my last post. On the wall behind it hangs a new addition of a piece of artwork that I received from Steve as a gift (but I know that it's from Ikea and was $10! Steal!). Then I have two racks where I keep my clothes. I always keep them neat and organized so they look like a fun additional accessory to the room instead of a corner to shove my clothes in. There are a few empty rungs for my roommate who had not moved in yet when I took this photo!
Beside my clothing racks is my dresser:
It's a cute pink one that I bought when I moved into my apartment last year. On top of it I keep three metal containers that I got when I first went to college from Ikea (where else?!), and on top of those a plastic giraffe thing you get at the zoo (I adore this giraffe sculpture; you cannot make me throw it away). On the left side is a cute candy dish I got at Goodwill for 50 cents; it's always stocked with tootsie rolls. On the right side is a fun pin cushion I got at Art vs. Craft in Milwaukee a few years ago. In front of everything is my ring collection that I store on a weird pair of hands my parents had in the living room as a remote control holder in the early 90s (?); I painted the base a light yellow. I hung a mirror above the dresser that my mom had in our basement and let me paint light blue.
Alright, this is my shoecase:
That's right, my shoecase. I, admittedly, have a lot of shoes, but I love and wear each and every pair. When I saw this awesome bookcase on sale at Ikea last year (I think it was $80), I had to have it; it contains cute little sketches and Shakespeare quotes that appear in doodle-form. Excuse me for displaying my shoes on these marvelous shelves.
Here's a close-up of the shoecase with one of the glass doors open:
