I finally got the … [Read more...]

easy DIY paint organizer

And it shakes when I really get going. … [Read more...]

new desk shelf/removable wallpaper awesomeness

I am so excited to share with you this new little shelf my dad helped me build the other week!

I was thrifting sans kids the other day (heaven!) with a couple bucks in my pocket when I spied this awesome old vintage organizer on the shelf. (vintage makes it sound cooler) It was $4.50. Sah-weet! I was sold. My mom had one like this growing up and I always loved playing with the buttons and other stuff she kept in there. Of course, it wasn't … [Read more...]

shelves are good.

My sewing room has been needing more storage. badly. Things were leaking onto the floors and I kept tripping over piles of fabric....which isn't always a bad thing, but in this case it was. So I grabbed my bestie and her kiddo and we headed up to Ikea. (which is a whole different meltdown story, but I'll spare you)I bought two cheapo Kilby … [Read more...]
