Get your wipes container popping!

I like clean. And, organization. But when my organization keeps all my cleaning supplies in one little closet at the end of the house, it makes quick, fussy, clean-ups, kind of… inconvenient.

Dresser to a media cabinet

This may be the only makeover in history (my history anyway), where the only tool necessary –– was a hammer. Remember this dresser? Yeah. The Kiddo’s first. It had a pretty big makeover back in the day. As I remember, this dresser had been through 4 little kids before Miss O (a hand-me-down)… and it […]
