Home Projects!

Since I have started this blog, I've been getting more and more into reading other people's blogs (novel concept huh?).  Recently I discovered this blog which is pretty much completely dedicated to organization/home projects.  Her ideas are pretty genius, very affordable, and super cute!  I don't have a whole lot to say/show about the projects that have been popping into my head since starting to read her blog, but I thought it would be fun to tell you about some of my ideas for our little Barker house, because I'm SUPER excited about them!!

First off would be the master bedroom closet.  Now, don't get me wrong...I love our house, it's a great first house.  But, the closet is definitely not big enough for the two of us!  Granted, I'm sure I need to thin out some of the articles of clothing/shoes that currently reside in our closet, but even so...we have a separate dresser, wardrobe, guest room dresser(s), and guest CLOSET that house the rest of our stuff.  I know, I know...we have way too much stuff, and that is going to be the first part of the project.  Spring Fall cleaning!!  I very much intend to clean out the closets and multiple dressers that we have stuffed clothes into.

I will post some before pictures soon so you can see what I'm dealing with.  But basically what I would like to do in a nutshell:

  • Take out the existing rods and shelves that go all the way around
  • Replace on the back wall with two levels of wire racks/shelves
  • Replace on the right wall with 1 tall level of wire racks/shelves (for long dresses, etc)
  • Replace on the left wall with all shelves all the way up (for shoes, hats, belts, etc)
  • And finally add a curtain rod and super cute curtain as a door (we had a door that opened inward which blocked off nearly half the closet's usable space, so we took it off, and now its just wide open)
This is my inspiration :)  

Other projects I have on my dream/to-do list (in no particular order!):
  • Refinish bathroom cabinets in master and guest baths
  • Refinish jewelry chest
  • Replace mirror in master and guest baths
  • Add curtain doors into master bath
  • Add shelves/organize laundry room
  • etc, etc, etc...
