This week has already been one of those crazy busy ones where you think to yourself, "Thank goodness it's Friday," only to realize it is 10:15 am on a Tuesday. Yikes. There seems like there is so much to do on my to-do list, and most of it is stuff I have no real interest in doing. But c'est la vie, I suppose. On days like this, I look at this little face and realize that no matter what life is wonderful:
Anyway, as a result of all this boring stuff I'm doing, I haven't been able to wrap up (or, truth be told, in some cases start) the projects I'd been hoping to share. So instead, I'm giving you the teeniest makeover that you could do for just a few dollars and a few minutes - but one that will free up some good space under your sink or in your cupboards.
My sister Shannon and her partner Chris moved into a new apartment a little while ago (lots more on that to come) and we've done things big and small to fix it up and make it theirs.
Since they have limited storage but, like most of us, a fair bit of stuff, we did a number of things to maximize storage. One simple one was to utilize otherwise wasted space behind the door in the small laundry closet. An inexpensive clear plastic shoe organizer (folded in half since the washer sits closer to the door than the upper dryer) now houses all of their cleaning supplies. They are easy to see, making the product you're looking for easier to find than digging through the cupboard, and now the space under their kitchen sink - previously full of these supplies - is free to hold something else.
By the way, just so you remember Chris and Shannon from previous posts-- you saw their engagement party right here, and when we did a one-day makeover in their last place right here? Here's a glimpse of that:
Okay, one last glance at my sweet Benjamin... getting so big!!
...and now back to work for this gal. Have a great day!
