DIY Closet Organizer for a 4′ x 4′ Closet

Closet organization!!! Something I always strive for, but with a teen and two tweens, it doesn’t seem to happen very well. My 14 year-old daughter has the smallest closet of my three kids.

An Easy Way to Hang a Loose Canvas

My middle child makes me laugh, all the time. There’s something about her demeanor that is sweet and caring yet witty and sarcastic, and the combination is amazing to me. Take her room style, for example. She went from wanting a “fluffy” room 2.5 years ago (fuzzy pillows, rug, soft turquoise, pink, and silver accents);Continue reading “Board and Batten- Bedroom”

Laundry Room Re-do

My last post about my sister’s rental house… I couldn’t forget to mention the laundry room. The laundry room was not great- the walls were gross, there was a piece of baseboard missing, the laminate floor was peeling up, the white shelves were disgusting, and the wood trim around the windows was brown.
