Roman Shade Replacement – Kitchen – Week of 07/12/2020
This project couldn’t have been easier. I hesitate to call it a project. I was able to use the mounts from the old shade, and all I did was unscrew and remove the old shade and screw in the new shade. It didn’t take 5 minutes!
This didn’t even require so much as a screwdriver. But if you were starting from scratch you’d need a drill and drill bit for sure. Most shades would come with the hardware you need with instructions for installation.
Here’s the shade I ordered from Amazon. I wasn’t looking to spend a ton of money on this project. This ran us $41.99. Not bad! Especially considering that Roman shades average $120ish and custom ones could cost 3 times that!
Just measure well, order up your shade and enjoy!
Coat Closet – Week of 07/05/2020
Quite a difference, isn’t it? It doesn’t look as impressive as it really was! The bottom of that coat closet was a mess! So it was super nice to get everything organized in there!
I added a shelf on the floor that gave us storage, but in an orderly manner! I love this little shelf, and it was extremely affordable at $26!
There’s not much I dislike more than anchoring shelves to walls. It’s just not a fun task. And try to do that at the top of a coat closet? FORGET THAT! I almost squealed with delight when I found this expandable tension shelf. No drilling, screwing, or anchoring required!! I’m SO in love! Plus, it fits tons of spaces because it adjusts! And this is quite sturdy, I was very pleasantly surprised!
It works perfectly! And I didn’t have to turn myself into a pretzel on a ladder to get the shelf installed. Winning all around!
Word of Warning!!!
If you are going to get some shelves for your closets, particularly the floor area of your closet, take care to measure carefully. And definitely pay attention to if you have trim in the floor of the closet. I didn’t pay any attention to that, and it threw my measurements off by at least an inch. And the shelf I purchased didn’t have a lot to spare. I got it in there, but let’s just say, should we ever sell this house, that shelf stays in there!! It’s never coming back out!
Materials Ordered and Used:
Master Bedroom Closet – 06/21/2020
WOW, right??? What a difference! And so much less stress to walk into this closet and look for something! Here are some more pictures!
How Did I Do It?
First of all, I cleaned up and took a lot of stuff out. I did a solid purge of clothes that I couldn’t fit into or that I hadn’t worn in at least 5 years. It was time to let some things go!
Next, I added in 4 new shelves. I used these shelves. These really hold a lot of clothes and look pretty good in the closet. I like that it has sides and a raised edge so that nothing falls off our out!
Finally, I took a BUNCH of stuff off hangers (and… the floor) and got it folded up and put on the shelves. And all of a sudden, bazinga! I had a clean closet!!
The Office Shelves – 05/10/2020
My office shelves. It makes me nuts how messy they are, and has made me nuts for some time now! I realize they don’t look THAT bad, but amazingly enough, one of my favorite pictures in hanging behind all that crap. My mission was to get the shelves organized and overhauled! And I did! I’m so proud to have that all cleaned up and it’s SO much more pleasant to look at! And I can finally see my photo!
Materials I used:
I didn’t buy anything new for the shelves to organize. I used all the same baskets I was already using. I did shop around the house for my pot lid organizer and I found a few fun knick-knacks and a cute picture of my baby boy on the one shelf to make it more fun to look at. I utilized some storage containers I already had for some extra toy storage as well.
