Neutral Fall Wreath

I know.
I know we're still enjoying the last weeks of Summer.
And I know some of you don't even want to hear about Fall, but I can't help it.  All the summer decor in my house was beginning to look out of place.

The beloved crab art, seashells and sail boats are all packed. Uh hu, until next year.

I've been slowly transitioning -decor wise- from summer to fall in a very neutral way.

One thing I like about today's project is that all the stuff I used I already had, yep.
You can also get ideas to re-think what you already own.

Things I've Been Learning while Making and Installing Drawers

how to make and install drawers in closet

Hey there,

As I told you in my previous post, building and installing drawers isn't my cup of tea. I still have a long way to go in this department.

This was my third time dealing with these suckers, and I know it's not going to be my last one either.

So, I better learn from my mistakes and I hope you do too because in reality it's not that tough and the more tricks you have up your sleeve the easier it is.

Hi Friends,

It's hard to believe that just a couple months ago I was lending my shoulder to my heartbroken girl. You can read about those sad moments rightHERE.

It has been said, "Time heals all wounds.” Over the few short months of summer, and with the help of her counselor and her (very supportive) friends, my daughter has been able to recharge and rejuvenate.

As a mother, it's always been my main priority

Flip-Out Bins - Kid's Room Organization


How was your weekend? Great? Good! 
Mine was OK. I kept working on the closet, yeah, still there. :/
It was time to build the drawers, I kind of hate building drawers. This time was no exception. 
They're not perfect but they're DONE and that's what counts. 
Now I'm happy to cross those off my list.


My last post was about building a shelf right in between the studs on the wall and these flip-out bins were installed right there for my son to store toys and belts and small stuff in his closet.
