Rediscover Your Pantry Space

clip_image001.jpg

I have spent the last two days in our playroom getting it organized. I still have no idea how my own kids don’t know how to pick things up, even when the bins are clearly marked with visual images on each as to what’s inside. Let’s see how long this lasts. I have told the [...]

Bed Frames to suit any room

SS11209-0915TPS826442.jpg

We live in a 1900 home and upstairs, the rooms all have slanted ceilings so we always have a hard time finding furniture that fits just right in each room. In most homes, owners can simply go out to any furniture store, pick out that perfect bed set and go home with it. We can’t. [...]

Confession: I have a 1900 home (that’s no confession really). I have limited very limited pantry and storage space.

Playroom Organization: Organizing Toys

I have been so frustrated with toys being everywhere and not being picked up. Some of this comes from Tucker’s toddler attitude, but some, I think, was sparked from not having a way to tell what goes where. I just spent 3 hours.. 3 HOURS in the playoom organizing. I filtered toys down from 3 [...]
