Hey guys! Sorry it's been so long- the reason I have not yet uploaded the pics of my *New and Improved!* closet is a pretty lame (yet true) excuse: I wanted to have a crafting wreath on the door. Yes, I'm serious. But anyway, I'll never be done improving it so I'll just post it later (I just got wreath forms today- but more on that later.;)
SOOO,,, I suppose I must show you the before pics first, huh?
|Yes, this IS the last box that I never un-packed after living in this house for TWO YEARS. After a while I just figured that since I wasn't looking for anything that whatever was in there wasn't important. This is the picture of laziness.|
Actually, it looked a bit worse than this. I cleaned up a bit before I realized I should probably take before pictures.
Here are the main things I used to spruce it up:
|Paper sorter- one of my mom's never used ones I found in the basement --free.|
|The weather beaten stool from the basement --free.|
|Plastic drawers from the basement. Trust me, plastic drawers weren't my first choice, but I needed more storage and haven't found an appealing alternative thus far. --free|
|This is one of the two items my dad and I got at Goodwill. It's an old box that was made to hold "slides"... whatever those are. --$3.00|
|I tried to figure out how to make this shelf level with the drawers- sigh. Nothing I tried worked. I might try again.... someday.|
|I just love this basket!|
|Isn't it perfect???|
|Yeah, pay Noooo attention to the yarn shelf. I would have put it in some of my cute baskets, but then I'd have to dig through it to find the yarn I need and it'd get all tangled and I wouldn't be able to see it all at once. So I'm living with it.|
|What? No, there isn't a picture of this above. You're imagining things.|
|Someday I'm going to put away the stuff in that basket so that I can put it away. There's another someday.|
|As you can see, I'm not much of a scrapbook-er. I enjoy it, but I enjoy so many other things more that I just never have time for it.|
