Like all of you, I wear many hats. I am a business woman, wife, twin mama, piano teacher, tutor, aunt, daughter and friend. During the day I work with my husband in our investment business. Although I enjoy my work, decorating is my passion. It is my creative outlet where I can really get my juices flowing. I believe your home should reflect your personality and lifestyle. You should walk through your front door and go “Ahhhh.” It should be a place where you can put your feet up, but also get them dancing. Come join me on this Design Adventure!
I have always enjoyed Memorial Day weekend. It is a great few days to spend time with family, friends and to reflect on our amazing country. This weekend brings so many wonderful families memories back to mind. We use to spend time at our family lake house growing up with all of our cousins. We would fish, swim, boat, water ski, have campfires and more! Do you ever wish you could turn back time...just for a moment!?
As we head into this holiday weekend, here is a little Red, White & Blue inspiration:
The lazy susan would give me a place for the items I use daily and I liked the idea of the tension rod to hold my spray bottles. It would also give me some extra space below to organize other cleaning products.
It was then off to Target!
I found this small lazy susan for only $5.99! I debated between a metal or plastic lazy susan, but ended up with the plastic choice. The plastic will be easy to clean under the sink spills.
These small plastic bins were also perfect size for under the sink and they were on sale for $3.99 each!
My last purchase was the tension rod for $5.99. I bought a thin oval rod instead of a round rod. I knew that some of my spray bottles had smaller nozzles, so the rod had to be a bit thinner.
It ended up working out perfect!
I emptied everything out from underneath the sink and gave it a good cleaning!
(who knows when the last time that happened)
Have you ever wondered why there are so many contraptions under the sink? I mean...you would think they would have come up with a better idea by now! Geez!
Next, the oval tension rod went up! It was placed from one end of the cabinet to the other.
The Lazy susan was placed closest to the door for immediate access. These are mostly products I use on a regular basis (minus the Ant Killer).
One plastic bin went closer to the back with supplies that are used only on rainy days.
And.....the finished product!
Not too spiffy huh? Aside from going to Target, this whole project maybe took me 45mins to organize.
So far so good! It has stayed this way for 3 days now...hehe.
This little bit of organization only cost me $20! And to think....I was going to go to The Container Store to buy some items. I would have walked out of there with at least $50-$100 worth.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It was fabulous to have a weekend at home to clean and organize as well as enjoy this beautiful weather we are having in NC. I still have my windows open on May 21st! CRAZY!
We also got to participate in a 1st Birthday Party for our friends little girl this weekend. They had a train theme and boy was it just adorable!
This invitation arrived a few weeks ago and has been hanging on my fridge ever since! You can find this and many other great party invitations at Dimpleprints on Etsy.
All of the adorable printables and banners are from Venspaperie on Etsy.
We even got our own tickets to ride the train!
A not so great picture of Me and Hubs riding the train!
It was a great party! Here is the birthday girl wearing her train conductor overalls!
Happy Friday All!
I am totally ready for the weekend, how about you? It has been a crazy week! I just got back from helping my parents pack up their home that they have owned for 30 years. It is bittersweet because they will be moving down south close to me! Actually only a mile from me! I am so excited! Isn't family the best?!
So that is my excuse for not posting much this week. I have a lot of pictures ready to take over the web for next week!! Stay Tuned!
On a exciting note, I was featured on Emily A. Clark today! She helped me pick my front door color and loves it just as much as I do.
If you haven't been on her blog before, you MUST check it out! She is one of my favorite decorators and I would consider her style a lot like mine. Thanks Emily for the Feature today!
Mother's are the Best! They are the ones that support us, the ones that give us hugs when we are down, the ones that make us cry by laughing so hard, the ones that sometimes frustrate us and the ones that are our BIGGEST fans....
