(CRAFT) Closet Makeover!









From THIS to THAT! 

I have major storage problems in my little home and with my growing Etsy business my kitchen desk was being taking over by wood, paint, stencils, burlap...you get the point.  Then my husband made me see the light! One night he said to me "I think you have successfully redone every inch of this house except the tiny front closet."  DUH! The tiny front closet (where extra throw pillows and paperwork went to die) I immediately got up and walked over to the closet, opened it and emptied it.  Most of the pillows had no chance of ever making it back out into our living spaces so I bagged up a few to donate and a few went into the linen closet.  I took all the paper work and folders and placed them into a large spare basket I had.  



Okay, so now the closet was empty but it was rough looking. It had never been painted so I went out to the garage and grabbed my white paint and literally that night I painted that little closet.  

I wanted the closet to be fun since it would be holding all my crafting supplies but I'm too cheap to buy wallpaper so I got out my blue painters tape and made some fun stripes like the ones I made on the entry foyer half wall. I love how it turned out and how it flows with the other wall when the closet door is open. 




Now came the fun part, decorating this little space! I immediately realized I should bring the IKEA metal art dresser that was in my older daughters room into this closet.  It has no top so I took a piece of large board we had in the garage, painted it and cut it to size.  Placing it on top of the IKEA drawers gave me a counter and also allowed my girls crafts to be organized underneath.  

I found some peg board we had extra from our "project organize garage".  I also found some old trim pieces.  I painted the trim in a bright cheerful yellow and cut them to fit around the peg board.  The only part of this closet I actually went out and bought was the Wall Decals (Target $12).  I added  two extra screw on hooks to the back wall and hung a skinny wire basket on the opposite wall.  

All the girls items are organized and put away. plus within easy access for them to get what they want.  PLUS it opened up my daughter floor space in her closet to store more TOYS! lol.  


There you have it! This little space is so bright and happy it makes me happy each time I open it! My kitchen desk is back to only holding decor items lol.  I couldn't be happier with how it all turned out for basically nothing!

Our Master Bedroom Flooring

Last night as I was showing a neighbor around the house (for a girls wine night..how fun right?!!) I realized that I hadn't shared our master flooring and office flooring!! You guys this floor was literally a STEAL! Every single person that has come to see the new house LOVES these floors!

Okay, so back to the beginning... when we were picking out the carpet for upstairs my husband and I both decided we didn't want the master bedroom to get new carpet.  It is the only bedroom on the first floor and the entire rest of the house already had tile.  I personally did not want wood tile in the bedroom just because I felt the need for something "softer".  Getting new hardwoods wasn't exactly in the budget so we decided to check out laminates.  Now, let me start by saying I have never liked laminate. You all know as soon as we buy fixer upper properties we ALWAYS rip out the laminate.  I just think it looks cheap.  Well...I was so impressed with all the laminate floors th…

One Room Challenge (Week 6) Dining Room REVEAL

It's week SIX! Our dining room is officially done and the One Room Challenge has come to an end...
Check out all the ORC reveals here....Guest Participants Before I get into all the pictures I want to thank my partners on this project! Without them this room would never have come together as it did!  So a BIG "thank you" to 
Lexmod Furniture WallPops Bealls Outlet
Lets start off by taking a look back six weeks at the dining room "Before".


The room sat pretty empty for a few months after we moved in but now it is anything but empty! 
She's all DONE!



When I come down the stairs now I can't help but love my new view! I am so happy I went with the side accent wall and not the wall opposite the window!  I think it makes the room feel bigger.

Our newest addition (Blue Rug Obsession)

Good Morning Friends!  Over break we added another BLU-tiful rug to the household.   In case you haven't noticed blue is kind of the running theme in this house (Our Coastal Craftsman) and I can't seem to get enough.  The kitchen needed a runner but I couldn't find one that was the exact length I wanted so instead I ordered a 3x5 rug.  This post contains affiliate links provided by Wayfair.
When you walk in my house you see the dining room rug (Link to buy dining room rug HERE ) and it has so many beautiful colors and keeps the room feeling light and bright.  The kitchen has a lot of light too but I didn't want something AS light just because I knew it would get a lot of traffic/ and or kitchen accidents.  



I almost went with the blue family room rug because FOR REAL it is SO gorgeous and SO soft (Link to buy family room rug HERE ) but I knew I wanted to make sure I had some aqua and just different shades of blue really to play with in the kitchen) 



So when I found th…
