Storage Solutions

Hello again, Can you believe that it's Monday already? I am whistling Dixie right now, because I don't have to work today or tomorrow SWEET! Well I guess it's time to get down to business. For the last few weeks I have been taming clutter and getting organized. Whew! I wish someone would have warned me that getting  organized takes lots of discipline. But I have purposed in my heart to get my house totally organized and clutter free. Who's with me?

So far.....


I removed all the contents from the closet and gave it a fresh coat of paint. (secret passage/Olympic)



Some of the existing shelving was rehung, but I still wasn't for sure about a few things. For instance, I wanted to add a chest of drawers, a shoe rack, and a few decorative items. How in the world could I make all this possible with limited space and a tight budget to boot? So I put my thinking cap on....... and here's what I came up with. I had a piece of wire shelving left (approximately 40 inches long).



Hubby cut the shelving in half and installed it.
 These shelves will serve as shoe racks. Pretty clever huh?



Not too shabby if I must say so myself. The shoe rack dilemma was solved, but what about the chest of drawers?



Well as it turns out I had the perfect chest in one of my guest bedrooms. The chest fit into the space like a glove. I contemplated painting it but for now I will keep it as is. I also added a mirror and a wooden bowl.



 I did some major purging, and only brought back the clothing and shoes that I wear regularly.  I hung my longer dresses in another closet. And the remaining clothing will be put in the spring yard sale or donated. I would like some colorful storage baskets for the top shelf to store my purses, but for the most part my master closet is a wrap. What do you think? I love how my closet turned out, but here's the best part. Are you sitting down? The total cost of this closet makeover was about $6, which was spent on extra hardware for the shelving. Now that's something to blog about!

Thanks for stopping by.

2 Your Home,

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.



My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!


Chat soon...
