Linen closet organization


Yesterday was a wonderful rainy day. The kind that was a good soaking straight down rain.  I couldn't resist opening the windows and letting the cool air pour in.  It was awesome!!! It was just what I needed to motivate me to tackle this....... yeah I know.

The "supply" closet had just really become the closet where we put things that we didn't know where else to put.  Kind of like the "drawer" in the kitchen..... you know.... "THE DRAWER".

During this process, I knew that I needed extra storage for my crafting "stuff" that wasn't able to be contained in the cabinet in my office.IMG_0571  I needed a space that I could keep the "extra" decorative pieces that I will periodically rotate in my home but that I would have easy access to, without having to go digging in the attic.  Anyway, I did it!  I wanted to give up many times and the mess drove my guys a little crazy.....IMG_0570 IMG_0569 IMG_0568but football was on so they didn't pay too much attention to me. :)
Now it is all so organized and beautiful!!IMG_0564 62a1201a-65e3-4d5b-8d59-e4c7e37aa37d Closet organization 015 Closet organization 016 Closet organization 017 Closet organization 018 It makes me smile, I can't walk down the hallway without opening the doors and taking it all in.

COMING SOON....... under Thrifting treasures

Just a quick little ditty to let you know I am working on this area..... I will be posting all of the thrifty finds as well as what I got them for.  Just to show that you can really do some awesome decorating on a very tight budget. :) Here is what I found at a resale shop a few months back. I found the owls for .99 cents and the mirror was .25 cents.  It originally didn't have a mirror in it. I took the mirror out of an old home interior frame I had for years.  I liked this one so much more.  It is brass.  The owls were just too cute to pass up. I have it sitting on the night stand next to where my granddaughters sleep when they are over.   Stay tuned for lots more of my finds. :)Owl and mirror

Fall Decorating

Happy Fall Ya'll!!!!

I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and do a "decorating" post.  Up to this point I have primarily focused on my upcycle projects.  I have been doing some things in that department but have been so busy that I just haven't taken time to take pictures or write about it.  I do hope to change that in the future but for now, it is what it is. :)

I finally used the old window that my wonderful cousin gave me.(she gave me two) I decided to turn one it into a mirror.  I used that spray from Krylon and it worked like a charm.  If you haven't tried this stuff, I highly recommend it. :)

These are from my porch and living room.  I don't decorate the whole house for fall, it's Christmas that really gets the whole house decorated.  But this is enough to get me excited for the holiday season.

I just love this time of year. The cool crisp mornings and the comfortably warm afternoons.... just makes you feel good.  I hope that these pictures inspire you and gets you motivated to bring in the fall in your own space.
