My next project...in the works

Here is a sneak peak of my latest redo project! It is a slow go....since I have been hit by the organizing bug.  Not a bad thing I guess and wayyyyy better than the stomach bug!

Fugly to fab-Game room chairs

For Christmas my Dad made me a table for our game room. We had been using a small rickety card table in that room for games. He also gave me two chairs he had refinished to go with the table. I knew we needed four chairs so I went hunting for two chairs at Goodwill. And I found these beauties marked down to $5 each.  I grabbed them.  They are great solid chairs but had seen better days!

  So he sanded and painted them for me so they would match the table and chairs.  Here they are all done.........

I love them!  I also bought a few other items....future fugly to fab posts once I get them finished!!

Organizing challenge-days 3.4 and 5

I am just posting now....but have been keeping up with the challenge.  Although I forgot to take before pictures for these areas. 

Day 3-Tupperware drawer

I had just done this one after the holiday because it was a hot mess. 

Day 4-Linen closet

This one wasn't in bad shape just needed some tweaking. I apologize for the horrible picture it doesn't do the closet justice at all!!! 

Day 5-Under the sink

I still need to get some more bins to keep things organized under there but it is so much better than it was!

Day 2 of Organizing Challenge- Desktop

Before! Sorry the picture is not the best

After...had to take it from another angle due to the sun
 This wasn't too hard a challenge for me.  The piles on my desk needed to be filed!  So I took care of that and cleaned off the desk.  Looks much better! Wonder if anyone else will even notice??

Undecorating and Day 1- Junk Drawer

We spent yesterday taking down most of the Christmas decorations.  I am leaving the tree up until next weekend....since it is still in good shape and not losing needles! The house looks so empty now...I need to redecorate it this week.

I can't believe our Christmas break is almost over!  It went by too fast.....we aren't ready to return to work/school yet!

I am doing the get organized challenge over atA bowl of Lemons here was my first project.  Normally my junk drawer stays very neat but during the last few weeks it became a dumping ground for everything!  It looks so much better now. 

Junk drawer before

Junk drawer after....ahhhhhhh much better!
