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,

My Fall Table

There are only nine days left until Thanksgiving. And I am so excited because I get to share it with close friends and family. By the way, the grand baby will be here too! Yay! Ok, back to the post.   My Fall Table turned out quite lovely if I must say so myself. This year instead of using a table cloth, I used a variety of fabric samples swatches to cover the table. So, what do you think? I love all the different colors patterns and textures, and they actually play off each other nicely. And I am hoping the fabric sample table cover will be a great conversation starter as well. I will let you know how it goes. Spode  China and pumpkins from the Dollar Tree who knew? Initially the table had two fall wreaths and two lanterns. You can see it here. But I had to remove one of each to make room for the table settings. You know how I love animal print. I think every room needs a little touch of it. How about you?             

Easy Last Minute Ideas For Fall

The count down has begun! Can you believe there are only 8 days left until the turkey is carved? So, today I figured I would share some easy last minute ideas to get you through Fall/Thanksgiving Holiday. So let's get started! These diy wreaths may look quite intimidating but on the contrary they aren't at all. To get this look you will need a grapevine wreath, garland of your choice, floral wire and ribbon. Simply take the garland and place it around the wreath. Once the garland is in place attach it to the wreath using floral wire. Next, add the bow and hang the wreath. Project complete! Your family and friends will be impressed. For best results make sure that the garland is long enough to cover the entire circumference of the wreath. If the wreath above is still a bit much, why not give this wreath a try? The only things needed are a grapevine wreath and ribbon of your choice. Now make a big bow and attach it to the wreath. Voila!  I used a pipe cleaner/chenille

How I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30

 I am over the super excited to bring you one of several posts revealing how I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30.Yes,you heard me right. And I must say it looks quite fabulous, but before the reveal can take place, we have to go through the process. Sorry!!! So, keep reading to find out how I transformed the space for so little. Each year I try to incorporate creative ways to decorate my home on an extremely tight budget, and this year was no exception. But in order to get the ball rolling on this project, I needed some inspiration. Well, my inspiration came via a promise I made to my grand baby. I promised her that Zsa Zsa(that's me) would decorate a Christmas tree she would love. However, with that being said, I also knew the design/decor had to be whimsical and playful enough for her. But it also had to appeal to the adults in the family as well. (mainly me) So, I put my design thinking cap on and came up with a plan, that I thought would appeal to both partie
