WEEKEND ORGANIZING

It’s a New Year so that means in with the new and out with the old! So how are you organizing your home? BHG has some great ideas. Such as this image below. Mason jars are excellent for organizing your toiletries in the bathroom. Stack your towels in an open shelf above your toilet or below your vanity if you have room.Another great organizing solution is to store any unused towels, paper towels, or toilet paper in your laundry room (again only if you have room). I know some laundry rooms are small but this is easy to accomplish in any room really. Most of the time we only look at the floor space and forget all about, the “wall space”. Don’t be afraid to hang some cabinets or open shelves to store items you need.  Sara Richardson displays this from the picture above. I’m also a fan of trays being used in different ways. She has all the detergents and other stain removers all neatly placed in a tray. It looks so put together and organized. Thanks for viewing have a great weekend everyone!

p.s. I’m going to work on my chair I wrote about the other day So hopefully I’ll have some work in progress photos to upload before the weekend is done.

Walk-In Closet: Every Woman Needs One

Like many women out there who don’t have the closet space that can fill up a room all by itself. But dream about having it some day. You’re not alone! How would you organize and/or decorate it. Here’s some inspiration for anyone looking to just that!If you have the attic space turn it into a full walk-in closet. There’s plenty of room to store seasonal items that aren’t in use. Plus, you’ll have lots of room to showcase your shoes, as shown above.
P.S. I love the silver wall paper along the ceiling.Talk about GLAMARAMA!!! I love everything about this room! From the black chandelier with matching tile chandeliers along the walls. To the huge gold mirror in the middle brings a pop of color against the pink and black. Last but not least, the houndstooth matching chair and ottoman pairs very nicely within the space.You can never go wrong with custom. This dresser shouts I demand attention… And boy, does it make its own statement in this small but functional space. A girl needs options. So put them on display! It’s readily accessible every time you need it. Now isn’t this easier than rummage for your shoes at the bottom or your handbags up top of your closet?Don’t forget to make room for your collection of jewelry. You never know when you’ll be looking for your favorite ones (which by the way, we know their all your favorite). Also, personalize your closet with photos. It doesn’t have to be just about clothes, and shoes.
Today’s the day to go out and VOTE!!! Enjoy your Election Tuesday.

Search And You Shall Find

I was on the hunt for some new fabric when I came across a pin on Pinterest called, Pink Chalk Fabrics. As I was searching for something pink to match with my project decor. And then this lovely one appeared in front of me.

Jennifer Paganelli – Super Fly Jane Fuchsia

Now I’m not much of an impulse buyer. I pick things up and hold it while I’m in the store until I’m ready to checkout. Or in this case watch it on the internet and hope it’s still there. Originally when I first saw it there were 9 yards remaining. A couple days later there were 2 yards left. Enough time had gone by and with a lot of thought I decided to buy. After all, I HAD TO HAVE IT!!!
My impulse buy came into full effect at this point. I immediately put in my credit card information and hit the checkout button. It wasn’t until after my card info was entered that I couldn’t use this for it’s original purpose. My needed request was for an upholstery material, as it was being used for a chair. With a little disappointment on my behalf for not remembering it said the material was cotton.  This would be too soft and would easily rip and be worn out before it’s time. I called and left a message about my mistake. After a long thought process; I figured it wasn’t such a bad impulse buy as it could easily be used for another project.
After all I almost lost sleep over this and had to have it!! The following day a rep for the company called to ask if I wish to cancel my order. My response was simply a no as it’s too GORGE to give up!
Please let me know if you have any suggestions what this should be used for? I’m open for all suggestions! Just bare in mind there are only 2 yards so I have limited options. So far maybe the thought of a a euro sham is the only idea.

Hey,  it’s almost the weekend happy Thursday!!!
