Hubby's Master Closet Update.

Hello All, I am back again this week with an update of Hubby's closet. I didn't get as far along as I had hoped, but I should be finished in the next week or so. Then it's on to another closet.

This is how the closet looked in the last post after all the contents had been removed. At this point I still wasn't completely certain as to how I would organize the space.   
 I had a few ideas, but they weren't concrete. I started rehanging some of the clothing in hopes of getting a clearer picture of how I wanted things to be placed. This closet is teeny weeny, so I am going to have to make every inch of space count. I knew that a chest of drawers was a must.
I would love to find a chest of drawers that looks somewhat like the one that's in my closet. So I went on a shopping trip to see if I could find something similar for Hubby's closet, but that didn't happen.   While I was out in search of a chest, Hubby put one of his bright ideas into motion and came up with this. The pic below is Hubby's idea of a chest of drawers.
This piece had been sitting in my garage for years. It served as a book case when my daughter was a tot. Trust me that was a long time ago. Hubby added some doors and placed it in his closet. Um, what's a girl to do or say? Husbands you gotta love em. We've had several round table discussions about Hubby's version of a chest of drawers, and I have come to this conclusion, "You can't touch this." lol..... Moving right along......

Hubby even took a pic of the chest with the doors closed. Will the chest stay or go? Come back next week to find out.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Great use of space Lory! Having a chest is nice for folded clothes and off season sweaters. His closet is coming along nicely! I so need to do this! Thanks for the inspiration and your sweet visit to my blog. Yes you can grow amaryllis in South Florida...probably even right might have to google how to plant them for your climate. I always try to grow them inside so in the dead of winter I have something pretty in bloom. Can't wait to see the closet looks all finished!

  2. I guess I'm losing my memory in my old age because I thought I already left a comment... lol. I love the way you designed your closet so I can't wait to see how you transform your hubby's space... :)

  3. Thanks Dee, I will be glad when the closet is finished.

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...

Stuck inside, My Master Bedroom Makeover

Hello everyone,

As I write this post, I am seated at my desk, looking out the window. The view is fantastic because I have the best apartment in the complex, in my opinion! Every day I get to look out at the picturesque panoramic views of the golf course. But, the best part is watching the sun dance on the rippling water in the pond and the ducks taking their daily stroll. 

Today, like most, the workers are busy readying the facility in anticipation of the course reopening. They are preparing for the once steady stream of golfers who frequented the trail, before social distancing. 

I love this quote by Benjamin Franklin 
"Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today. 
I couldn't agree with him more. 

I said all of that to say, it's time to put it in high gear. Instead of being bored, aggravated, complacent, and down-right mad, I choose to make the most of an unpleasant situation.

Today's post is all about getting things done now, and the steps I am taking to make i…
