Closet Tour

Ok so I just completed a closet tour on my YT page. Now I have to admit I edited out a lot of stuff, due to the fact of the 15 min limit on videos. Maybe one day I will do another video - kind of a part two...? But for now this will quench some curiosity and hopefully inspire people to be creative and resourceful.

Silver Tray is from the dollar store, actually a serving tray but I use it as a catch all. Jewelry that I have worn during the week lands here and gets put away on the weekend. Also new things find a home here, to remind me to wear them.

Steel Rack from Target becomes a Jewelry / Accessories Holder.

I keep most of my necklaces in fishing tackle boxes I found at Wal-Mart for about $5 each. Keeps them separated and from getting tangled.

I do have a Jewelery Armour that I got for Christmas like three years ago and it is full of goodies...

The wood drawers I pulled out of a dresser for my earrings and bangles....

Clothing racks where bought at Wal-Mart for $10. Be careful not to pile to much clothing on one rack or they will fall over. Shoe holders where from Target for $25.
Note: not all my shoes fit in these, because some heels are too high. Those are stored in their original box. They also get a post it note with a quick pic and description of what the shoe is.

Wire Cube Rack found at Target, added to the top shelf to make sections for easy organization.

Reclaimed drawer from a horrible chest of drawers. This is perfect for under the bed, or in a nook to store stuff. In my case I use it as a flip flop holder.

A Reclaimed Easter Basket becomes the perfect hair organizer.

A fruit or dessert bowl becomes a lip gloss, lip stick and balm holder.

Check out the new video for the walk through:

DIY - Thrift Shop Pants Re-Vamp

So these last few weeks I have found myself very busy with family stuff.... .. .

Was able to finally get a day off with nothing to do except work on a video [finally!!!] Sometimes I feel like - if I don't get these ideas in a video I will spontaneously com-bust!

This video is based on a thrifted pair of pants from my local salvation army for $1. Kind of another re-vamp project, which will be perfect since it is warming up around my neck of the woods... .. .

Boots & Dogs

have been neglecting my YT channel for the last couple weeks. One weekend was super busy and the other well we got a new addition to our family.
Bella - Watch the video to see her cameo appearances. I have a feeling she will be stealing the spotlight a lot!
