Weekend of accomplishment

We had a good weekend. Other than church, we didn't actually go anywhere, but it still was a great weekend. On friday, we had our church home group over. We are studying the book Fearless. It is really an easy read, and so relates to our daily lives! Saturday, I got all kinds of wild hairs and decided to organize Brooke's and my closet. I have had the biggest mountain of laundry, that never seems to go anywhere, even after doing loads of it. So, Saturday was the day to conquer it, once and for all!! I also organized my closet in a way that, I can only fit 2loads of dirty laundry in the closet, so it won't happen again!! It feels so good to be better organized, even if you are the only one to appreciate it. Next, it was off to Brooke's closet. I had her old changing table in there for shelves, but after she had friends over to play, things were always a mess and no matter how many times I organized it, it would end up messy, and I would end up mad at her. So, out with the changing table. I planned on putting it to use in my closet, but the wire closet system already in there, made it not able to fit. She is sooo excited about her new closet. She even helped me to put everything away, so she will hopefully take responsibility for her stuff now. We (MIKE) brought up the dresser that i actually used growing up, from the basement, to put in her closet. We categorized the drawers, separated stuff accordingly, and even hung up her play costumes in the little door area. I used to play hide and seek in that little nook of the dresser :). She kept saying the rest of the weekend, "I'm gonna go play with my closet". How cute.




I also, FINALLY painted that darn potato bin! I think it was too cold to be painting outside yesterday, but I am tired of it being on my mind. It is done, for now. I still need to buy some more of the brown bins you see in the pic. Those are from our bathroom, but we will have to wait till the budget allows for more. I feel like i did it very half a&% , but, it looks okay, and Mike is happy to have a table to put his clock radio on. I like the extra lighting in that corner of the room too, it makes it look bigger.








Now, I am thinking of what else I can organize next. What are you up to? Have you done any fun organizational projects lately??

Looks so nice an organized!! Now will you come help me with my house??!! Our walmart has some cute new storage baskets that are 13x13x10...not sure what the opening is of your bin but they do have the dark brown if that's what you're looking for, or they have lighter ones too...also Walmart.com has some good ones and they'll ship to your store for free. I bought the Pottery Barn look-a-like baskets from Walmart, for Kate's bookshelves in her bedroom.
