My Craft Closet: Organization Tips and Ideas Part 2 (small home/ BIG IDEAS)

I’m so excited to reveal the rest of my craft closet with you today! If you read part one of my craft closet reveal , then you got a glimpse of how terribly cluttered it had gotten. If you’re like me, frustration leads to motivation. Needless to say, I was beyond frustrated with the state of my craft closet. I can totally blame my lack of organization over the past year on being creative. See…there’s even this

It feels like a huge accomplishment! Trust me, my closet had

8 Great Craft Closets: Organization Ideas

Remember at the beginning of the year when I was determined to get all of my hall closets in order? I managed to get two out of the four complete (see here and here), but my craft closet has been the most disorganized out of all of them so I’ve avoided it for the past six months. Ah! I can finally say I’ve started tackling the monstrosity that hid behind that closet door. The full

Ikea Helmer Hack with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

Paint is one of the easiest way to transform a piece of furniture that just doesn’t fit into your decor. Back in October, I took an Ikea PS locker cabinet and gave it a more vintage-industrial vibe with Krylon’s chalkboard paint, craft paint and Annie Sloan’s dark wax. I’ll put the link to the tutorial for you at the bottom of this post.  Today, I’ll show how I took a another cheap metal cabinet from our

Easy Makeup Organization Using Fabric-Covered Tin Cans

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and All You, but all my opinions are my own. #lifeforless #pmedia http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO Living in a smaller home poses many challenges. Our master bathroom is only 5′ X 8′ so it’s a good thing Mr. Simplicity and I work opposite shifts. Otherwise, he’d be getting the accidental elbow to the abdomen every morning. And I feel lucky that he’s not a

A Simple Summer Vignette

If you see the decorating for the seasons page, you’ll notice that this spot of the living room gets changed out quite often. I say quite often, but truthfully, I left the boxwood bunny wreath from the Easter display up way after the holiday had passed because I was feeling attached to that little guy. Since summer is officially here, I did some long-overdue summer decorating for the empire chest that sits by our front door. This

Repurposed Crate Storage Table

We have a few things left to do to our covered porch before it’s ready for cookouts and company. One of my favorite projects so far gave us some much needed storage and best of all, it was (nearly) free. I have to admit it, I’m not shy when it comes to asking for free stuff. You never know when someone is ready to give up something they consider junk. When the idea struck me
