This makeover is another that you have to see to believe. Worthing Court created a beautiful and functional space out of what seemed to be a disaster. Check it out over on her blog!

Craft Room Organization Inspiration

Your craft room is a place for creativity, but just because it’s a creative space doesn’t mean it needs to be a disaster. We found quite a few handy tips on how to organize your crafting supplies, here are some of our favorites.  I have always appreciated a good pegboard. They’re such a flexible storage option since you can add or remove different aspects as your storage needs change. You won’t want to miss the transformation of this room on Just Call Me Homegirl. Polka Dot Poplars created this genius storage tower as a way to organize all the little things that seem to drop to the bottom of drawers. She made these fun colored jars just to match her room decor, the details are over on her blog. If you’re not a fan of the bare pegboard, check out this great alternative over on Southern Hospitality. She also shares a great organization tip for all that ribbon you have laying around. I wish I could tell you how hard it was to pick just one photo to share from In My Own Style. This is one of the most beautiful and organized craft rooms I’ve seen yet. I love the idea of this chest of drawers for organizing all those small pieces that don’t seem to have a home. Bonus: the labels on these drawers can easily be changed! You don’t want to miss this one! This is a fun way to display small bottles of paint. Today’s Creative Life used an everyday item from the home improvement store to create this cute (and functional)…

10 Linen Closet Organization Ideas

The linen closet is the bane of every neat freak’s existence. Somehow, this one small closet attracts clutter much faster than other areas of the home. As we enter a new (hopefully less cluttered) year, we found a few ideas to inspire our own linen closet organization. This linen closet is every perfectionists dream! Julie Blanner painted the inside of her linen closet (a place that usually is neglected) a light color to create a brighter space, making it easier to find things. If this was my linen closet, I think I’d leave the door open all the time! No linen closet, no problem! Ella Claire added these practical yet beautiful shelves to her bathroom to create the storage space her home was lacking. Seeking Lavender Lane shares a great step-by-step guide for those that aren’t quite sure where to begin in their organizational efforts.  Make sure you head over to her blog to see the before photo of this closet, it’s very relatable and will give you hope for your own closet. While many people choose smaller baskets for their closet, Little Glass Jar uses larger metal bins. This creates such a clean feel to her closet while keeping all those smaller items in their place. For some reason, most homes have wire shelving in their linen closets. If this aspect of your closet bothers you, head over to Lemons, Lavender, & Laundry to see her solution! The large baskets Clean Mama uses create such a uniform feel. The best part about this closet organization though is the guest basket. No more digging around for clean (and relatively unwrinkled)…

20 Trendy Thanksgiving Tablescapes

Thanksgiving is just days away and if you’re anything like me, you aren’t at all prepared.  Here are a few tablescapes to inspire your Thanksgiving decor. A patterned tablecloth is a great way to switch things up without having to invest in new dinnerware.  This plaid pattern Bless’er House chose for her tablescape is to die for! A few years ago, I decided to add some color to my Thanksgiving decor.  I still reminisce on how well this design turned out. All the details are on my blog, Designers Sweet Spot. We love how Fox Hollow Cottage designed her table around this vintage sugar mold. It’s the perfect centerpiece to give the table a casual yet sophisticated feel. Make sure you take a peak at her cute turkey-themed dinnerware! You’ll definitely want to head over to 2 Bees in a Pod to check out all the adorable details added to this tablescape, including the DIY clay place cards! Such a special touch. (Plus, wouldn’t they make a cut Christmas ornament after the feast was over?!) Most tablescapes are done on long tables with plenty of extra space for decor.  Which is great, if you have a long table. Little Red Brick House didn’t let her small, round table stop her when it came to decorating. This simple design is perfect if you’re lacking all that extra table space this year. I’m fully aware that this isn’t a tablescape.  However, this DIY tutorial was too good to pass up! I can just picture several of these spaced along your table, or even a larger pumpkin as a centerpiece. Wine…

How I Failed To Decorate our Dining Room

No one likes to say that they have failed. Today I give you permission to completely FAIL in your home decor. I completely failed in this renovation project, but all is not lost! The One Room Challenge Dining Room Update This week is the final reveal for the One Room Challenge. I have been avoiding writing this post, because it’s hard for me to admit that I have failed this challenge. I haven’t finished our dining room. I was really excited in the beginning, the painting was easy. It took me an entire weekend to paint the built-in dining hutch. The white is so much lighter, I really do like it. I am glad I took the plunge to paint all that dark woodwork. The next project  was the ceiling. This painted ceiling medallion gives the room something special. Our kitty loves to stare at the ceiling, she must find it interesting. I bought some great fabric at a fabulous price and whipped up a pair of curtains. I was on a roll! And that’s where the story ends. Actually, it came to a grinding halt. The END of the Dining Room ORC Story The table improvements are holding me back. I need to paint the table, but I don’t have the vision right now as to which colors to use. White, black? Grey, Chocolate? Can’t decide. Am having second thoughts about the curtains that  I made. I never have second thoughts. NEVER. Usually, I am an all in kind of girl. But, something in this room just doesn’t feel right. Our…
