Garage Organization

The garage received a lot of unexpected praise and attention at our garage sale last weekend, so I decided to share my organized garage journey.  This journey, and post, is really long, so bear with me.  Garage organization became increasingly more important for us as we tackled additional DIY projects. Realistically, about half the “junk” in the garage was contributed … Continue reading

Installing Front Door Glass

On the journey to a newly painted front door, one of the panels of leaded glass decided to break.  Fortunately, they were tempered glass so there are no injuries to report (and I secretly wanted to replace them anyway…). After some diligence and some plywood to cover the hole in our door for a week, I was able to install … Continue reading

Laundry Room Organization

As seen on: A couple weeks ago I finished solving a major problem in our laundry room when I installed our Dryerbox.  I love the added space it gives us.  Our laundry room isn’t really anything special; it was built with enough space for a washer, dryer, and some shelving…and that’s it!  Of course, I wasn’t satisfied with it and I … Continue reading

Modifying the Laundry Room Shelves

While organizing our laundry room I realized we didn’t need as much clothes hanging space as the builder allotted, but we did need more shelving space. The builder gave us two sections of hanging space and one was situated right over the washer, which for us, that 2 feet of space was just unnecessary when we had an additional hanging … Continue reading

Basically the Liebster Award is an award for new bloggers and it’s given to bloggers by bloggers…a way of … Continue reading

Handmade Napkin Rings

I wanted to share my version of rustic handmade napkin rings.  For less than a dollar per ring I used this version for Thanksgiving.  However, the embellishments on this napkin ring can easily be changed to create a whole new look for any occasion. First, I cut strips of card stock paper 6″ x 1.5″ long.  This gave me a … Continue reading

Applying Contact Paper

One of the easiest ways to update the inside of drawers, shelves or in my case the top of my craft desk, is contact paper.  Adhesive contact paper can instantly brighten up a space and add some temporary color, but it is sometimes a pain to apply. This is what my desk looked like before: Not bad, but not very … Continue reading

Organizing Pet Supplies

  As a mom to quite possibly the sweetest little poodle ever, a rowdy Maine Coon cat, and a step-mom to my fiance’s dog, Sugar, (oh and let’s not forget our fish!) we have accumulated a lot of pet supplies.  In this post I will focus on organizing supplies for the four-legged furry variety rather than the finned. Whenever we … Continue reading
