Before and After

21 Jan


I absolutely love a house with lots of storage to play in! Give me your pantries, utility closets, and mudrooms! I love them all! No joke! Here is a before and after of a utility closet that had become a place to store odds and ends! This lovely closet just needed some structure and a quick 30 minute clean-out!


And the after… oh yes!




The blue bins are from the Dollar Store… gotta love it! I also used a small white trash can from the Dollar Store to hold the rolls of wrapping paper! The stacking bins for gift wrapping supplies are from the Container Store, as is the cleaning supply caddy.┬áThe bins contain cleaning supplies, tools, paint, light bulbs, bug spray, etc…

Fabulous! If this was my closet, I would just stand and stare at it!

A little rainy Wednesday inspiration…

I love PINTEREST! I hoard away all my sweet organization inspiration here… on my pinterest page! See I do hoard something!

Here are my top ten favorite pinterest pins! Ready to get motivated?! Why are these… make life simple? All of these pins are easily attainable looks and well that is what counts… right! We can’t all have custom cabinetry in every room, but we can make simple changes for a big impact!

First, purchase a few jars from your local antique mall or even grocery store. Pop your make-up brushes in them and TADA… your vanity has a little interest and organization!

Love… love… love… this utility closet! Just peg board, couple of baskets, and an IKEA drawer system!

Place all your commonly used kitchen items in a basket or tray by the stove! Hello, storage and decorating!

I need a bar… just so I can make it look like this!

What a fabulous, simple linen closet! I love the bins, the linens on the hangers, and the medicine storage!

Here is a great way to store art supplies for older children, so they can find everything they need!

Bill station, yes please!

Ok… hold the phone… I desperately need one of these for outdoor toys, etc…

If I had a little more room on my vanity and well a little more make-up… I would so have one of these!

These are beautiful, they are like art work for your closet or dressing area!

Which one is your favorite! Time for a project… now which one to choose!

Little Girls Playroom

1 Jul


I absolutely love this playroom! Organizing this room for two sweet little girls was such fun!

Top three reasons I love this playroom…

1. My client had the room painted a pretty purple! This gives the room a fresh starting point!

2. I love that they painted the closet and removed the closet doors!

3. They moved the kids kitchen into the closet, which with the closet doors removed adds play space for the girls!


I love this room! What do you love about it?
