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

Liebster Award – Well-Groomed Home has been nominated!

To my surprise, my brand-new blog has been nominated by Pearls + Girls for a Like Katie at Pearls + Girls , I had no idea that this even existed and after really only getting attention from family and friends it feels nice to be “noticed”. 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

Painted Kitchen Cabinets – Chalk Paint!

Our kitchen has been a work in progress from the time we moved in. It was in dire need of immediate help.  I doubt you can tell from the before pic (crappy I know…taken with an iPhone), but the cabinets had been stripped of all pulls before the foreclosure….and the foreclosure real estate company had graciously put new pulls on … Continue reading

How to Create Your Own Home Gym (on a budget)

I have always wanted a room dedicated to working out, dance, and fitness.  In our new home I turned a spare bedroom into exactly that!  Creating a unique and inspiring work-out space doesn’t require thousands of dollars to design, like I once thought.  With a little hard work (hey that’s exercise too, right?), I made my own home gym. Locate … Continue reading

The Grand "Before" Tour

Okay, so I have mentioned once or twice that our house was bought as a foreclosure…  This has left us with a list of cosmetic projects so long that we now have a whole alphabet of categorized lists.  I want you to see what we started with in each room so you know exactly where we are coming from.  The … Continue reading
