Oh my goodness I have been gone so long, have so much to show you, and so little time to do it. So I thought I’d start with the one of the oldest projects that I have yet to show you…it’s an ikea cabinet for our bathroom. If you remember waaaaay back when we gutted our upstairs bathroom we didn’t leave room for a closet. Instead we had a little “nook” where I was going to find the perfect little armoire to fit in that space. Well, that proved harder than I thought, and more expensive. So I ended up at the ever affordable Ikea.
I bought the Ikea Hemnes cabinet for $365. Although that’s a great price, it’s still a chunk of change, so I had to made sure I loved it. It was a perfect fit and that I loved. And I was excited that instead of just a closet, it had a little bit of character. I vowed that I would do those glass door justice and have an organized, “cute” cabinet in my bathroom. I even spent good money on matching baskets.
The problem is…I can’t do organized. At least not “cute’ organized. So I ended up with this..
seriously, it’s pathetic. Don’t worry, I know.
And then I said to myself. Forget it. I can’t make my Rave hairspray look good. Ever. And…..I’m never gonna stop buying it….cause honestly, I’m addicted. Seriously, don’t judge, just try it. I’ll save you millions:)
Soo……I decided those doors need to be covered.
The chaos needs to go away.
I screwed in two small screws into the inside of the doors and ran wire between the two.
and then I used my ever trusty drop cloth and made a little curtain for it.
and taaa daaaa!!! Problem solved!
What once was, well..this…
And that’s how I solve problems.
I still love that it has character, and I also love that I can buy whatever I want to put in it, even if it doesn’t match. For all you type a people out there it still might drive you nuts. But, for me…out of sight, out of mind!
and now I can utilize the full space.
So, one more project off the list….
now to update you on everything else that’s been going on:)
But, before that I have a fun little Christmas giveaway. One lonely little sign was left over from Whimsy. 2 actually.
I’m giving one away on the blog and a different one away on my instagram feed @prvbsthirtyonegirl. Comment below to be entered in the drawing. This sign is about 12×12. And I took the picture at night so the lighting doesn’t do it justice. It’s light gray and white with a gray stain. I’ll pick the winner Wednesday and contact you via email:)
