Garage Organization: Inside the Cabinets

My garage organization has been a work-in-progress for the last couple of years.  I work on it when I'm in the mood - mostly because it is a huge project and I didn't want to get overwhelmed and totally abandon it.  In the beginning, I made a list of what needed to be accomplished and broke it down into smaller projects so it would be easier to get done.

I previously mentioned in other posts that I was able to get some organizing done over the holidays and this was one of them.
What a great "before and after", right?!

DIY Dropcloth Dog Bed

Since Sally has become more of a fixture around here, I've been trying to incorporate her things with the decor of my house.  Although she sleeps with me on my bed, I decided to make her her own bed for when she wants a place to lounge throughout the day.

In the past, I got Sally a store-bought bed, but she didn't like it.  Since she's been staying here, I noticed that she always tries to lay on my pillow.  This a no-dog-butts-allowed zone!  So, I decided to make her own dog bed out of an old king-size pillow I wasn't using anymore.

Linen Closet ReOrganization Part 2

One of the other spaces I reorganized last month was my linen closet.  Last year, I shared how I reorganized it here.  It was only temporary - I knew it would need to be reorganized after I remodeled my hall bathroom (I had a white storage cabinet with white baskets in there and part of the plan was to take it out of the bathroom for good).

Pantry ReOrganization

Last month, I took the time to reorganize a few of my spaces.  I started with my pantry - it was already pretty much organized, but there were a few problem spots that needed to be fixed.  My pantry is really deep, which in a way is good for storage, but at the same time it's not because it makes it hard to access stuff in the back.  Because it's so deep, using baskets & bins was going to be my best bet.  Throughout the last year, I bought baskets & bins from the Dollar Tree, knowing that I'd be able to use them in various spaces around the house, including the pantry.

Hall Bathroom Makeover: The Reveal

Hello and Happy New Year!  How quickly time flies, right?  This past holiday season was a busy one for me, but I managed to complete some projects - just didn't get a chance to share yet.   And this month I'll be busy & stressed at my job, so I'm hoping that doesn't get in the way of projects I'd like to get started on.  At least I have some completed projects to share with you soon.  ;)

So, now for the hall bathroom reveal - FINALLY!  The bathroom was finished since before Thanksgiving and I added a few final touches in the last few of weeks.  I have one more project planned for it, but not sure when I'll get around to it, so for now I've officially called it done.  D-o-n-e!  Bada-bing, bada-boom!
