Kitchen to Closet

Martha Stewart Living, January 2009

A pair of paper-towel holders mounted on the inside of one closet door organizes scarves or ties and keeps them wrinkle-free. A kitchen-utensil rail proves to be ideal for belts: Each gets its own S hook.

    I bought a trouser hanger with 6 rods that you unclip and swing out for ease in taking trousers on and off. I asked clerks at department stores and discount stores for any extras of those little round clear plastic hoops they use for displaying some socks and other items. I loop my scarves in these then onto the hanger rods, and I have it handing inside my closet door. It's perfect for me !!!

    I think it's a great idea :)

    This is probably one of the messiest things I've ever seen on Martha Stewart. Wouldn't the scarves get all wrinkled...?

    I especially enjoy the idea for hanging belts. I found S hook and rail at Ikea for under $10. It's the Grundtal kitchen series.

    Gulf girl, I really like your idea! And, you can use the very strong tapes, etc to hold the yard stick to the wall and therefore no more holes.
    BTW: I tried to go to your website, but it said that your bandwidth limit was exceeded.

    I love this idea and am excited to go get in going at my house. Thanks.

    I have two hangars that are specifically scarf hangars

    Adding a bit of the non-slip rubber (used under rugs, etc) around the holder arms allows for no slippage of the scarves, too

    Wow, this is awesome! Just last week I was looking for a better way of storing scarves and belts. Now they will be out of the way but still easy to get to... so simple... THANKS!

    Seeing this made me think it would also make a great necklace holder.

    Over the years I have been using a beautful basket to store my scarfs

    Instead of buying "S" hooks, make them with an old clothes hangar, to quickly take belts, and scarves off the rods or taunt ropes. The rods can be purchased at yard sales or "Dollar" stores for very little money. This is a great idea! Limited space or not.

    Better idea for scarves is mini-clothespins glued to a yardstick about an inch apart and mounted w/ two screws. Clip scarves individually w/ mini wood clothespins. Won't slide off like these scarves draped over the paper towel holder will. www.ConcreteCottage.com

    Thanks for the idea of curtain rods. I like it because no more holes in the wall.

    Great idea on the Curtain Rings. I like it because no extra holes in the wall- thanks!

    A less expensive but equally useful alternative is to use shower curtain rings looped into a hanging rope. I bought mine at the dollar store. This works well if you don't have a lot of wall space as it hangs on the clothes rack.

    I use that same kitchen-utensil rail (it's Grundtal from IKEA) to keep my big everyday bags within easy reach by the door. My Mom uses it in the kitchen for its intended purpose and it's equally awesome. It's a great fixture I recommend for anyone!
