Painted Closet Doors

Ok. Here we go again. If you didn’t know me you’d think I have something against closets! I don’t, I swear… they do great things like, have doors, and… hold stuff. But, this one? Urgh. Another antique, brushed, gold… thing. And — I truly LIKE the whole gold movement… but, this isn’t, that. Old-fashioned, brassy […]

Foyer Closet Storage & Makeover

  Update: We’ve made some more progress… Be sure to check out the entire, updated Foyer Makeover, AND my tutorial for my custom DIY Copper Shoe Rack! Oh my… this has been a doozy. It’s been going on for nearly a year. Ideas have changed –– a few times. Things have come, and been returned. Kijiji finds found, […]

The front entry closet needs some help.

Oh man, I hate this closet. You’re saying “hate” is a strong word Jen, but it’s true. I try not to have any emotional feeling towards inanimate objects, but it has been so darn useless for us. I could live with the outdated-ness of it all. But the function, good grief the function! This is […]

Kiddo’s Closet, Part 2 – Reading Nook

Progress is goooood! Last we saw little Miss’ closet we had a plan for a nook, and some drywall up. (Oh, and the wall was still Pepto-Bismal pink). So after framing, building, taping and sanding our fantastic new interior wall, we could break out the primer and paint. Ooooooooh, Ahhhhhhh… look at that Benjamin Moore Barnboard […]

Kiddo’s Closet Reno – Part 1

It all begins here (forgive the strange angle, we took this photo during one of our pre-move visits). This big furniture might be gone, but the day we moved in, this closet stayed the same. Three, big, heavy, mirrored doors for a little two year old wasn’t going to work. Plus, she’s so rough and […]

Getting to know Pax.

Pax is moving in, and he’s bringing a lot of stuff with him. This is about a third of the boxes we lugged up the stairs, all in an effort to solve the lack of closet space in our master bedroom. (The Kiddo actually has a bigger closet than we do). As you can see, […]

I’m a closet organizer.

I am so glad my new linen closet looks like this now… Because a little bit earlier, it looked like this… Ouch. And this was after tackling it for an hour. Granted, if you’re organizing your linen closet at home you’re generally not hunting everything down in multiple cardboard boxes first… but you get the […]

Baby Clothes Dividers

You know I love organization. And, now that little Kiddo is here, it’s time to flex some organizing muscle. Everyone has been so generous with gifts and hand-me-downs, but I’m not letting them pile up in a corner. No no… time to make a place for everything and everything in its place as they say. Enter the […]
