What Houzz contributors are saying:
Gick used decals here to create a time-saver for dressing twin girls. Laundry done on the weekends is separated into outfits and put in the appropriate drawers, along with other required clothing items, such as gym uniforms or dance outfits.
“Their father was often at a loss when it came to putting outfits together, so I came up with these drawers.” — designer Joanna Glick, as told to Mary Jo BowlingThis is such a great idea — on laundry day, Glick puts together outfits to throw into labeled day-of-the-week drawers she designed for her daughters, similar to the ones seen here that she made for a client. At Glick’s own house, the drawers also house any special items the child might need that day, like dance shoes or a uniform for sports practice.

We’d explored this place on Houzz before but had never seen the cats in action. Check out the video to see 15 cats scale stairways, run across catwalks and get their backs scratched by shark-tooth-surrounded cat doorways. It’s really fun — unless you hate cats, in which case I would not recommend it. Full story: Houzz TV: Watch These Rescued Cats Make a House Their Playland
Glick redesigned the existing double closet using Ikea cabinetry and drawers for a kid-friendly configuration.The idea for day-of-the-week drawers came from her personal experience. “I work full-time, and it often falls to my husband, a babysitter or grandparents to get my girls ready in the morning,” she says. “Their father was often at a loss when it came to putting outfits together, so I came up with these drawers. When I do laundry, I bundle outfits together with rubber bands and drop them in the right day. I also slip in any extras they will need, like clothes for dance lessons. Whoever is getting them ready doesn’t have to think about it.”
