I've had such an urge to get organized lately!
I guess it's not hard to understand when you see this:
yep, this was calling to me saying "clean me up!". this changing table has been used as a book shelf for the last 6 years and, frankly, it wasn't strong enough to hold all these books! I found this fun storage idea on pinterest and went to an antique store looking for wooden crates for cheap:
well, we found some cool wooden crates but they were $15-$20 each (and $11 at Joann's) I figured by the time I got enough crates it'd be about $100. and then i spotted it! a wonderful oak desk, with attached shelves above for storage. it looked like it would have enough room to hold all of our kids books and the price tag was.....$60 SO excited!
the girls are just lovin this new desk. I don't know what it is, but for some reason i always dreamed about having a desk in my bedroom when i was a kid...is that just me??
Also, I've organized all my girls' tights (finally!)
we have SO MANY tights...but, i must say, they are mostly hand-me-downs. i've only bought about 5 pairs of tights as a momma of 3 girls, but we have about 80 pairs as you can see. I hung this handy shoe-holding device up in their bathroom and now they can see and find their tights a lot easier
ya know the saying "a place for everything, and every thing in it's place" well, that doesn't work unless you have a "place", right?! I didn't get a "before" shot but this shoe closet was just a big, jumbled MESS
|I originally had a shoe rack in our closet and all the rest of the shoes just piled up next to it|
|I bought these bins for each of the kids for like $2.99 they got to write their names on them|
|i bought this for my shoes, and i put my most often worn shoes on our ikea shoe rack|
