A closet makeover

I knew I would never be able to hold out...ha!

At least I can show y'all the top half.

It's what I have finished so far.

Lets step back in time shall we.

Nothing like ripping out closet shelves only to leave holes.

The size of NEVADA! ouch

Marc shared his concern on this matter and I fixed it.

Nothing a little wallpaper wont cover.

This is the neatest paper ever!

I then finished it off with a little trim.

I knew I didn't want many shelves.


Because they collect clutter and I always fall victim. every time

So limiting my shelves ...limits my clutter.

Maybe I can be passed up by hoarders this season. fingers crossed

I found these neat brackets at Lowes.

2 for under 10  ;)

Now here's where the fun enters the stage.

Cue the family pictures that have been stored forever.

I wanted to surround myself with family.

At first I started to update the photo's then changed my mind.

It's like going down memory lane every day.

Now no Southern girls office is complete without a monogram.

Even if it's only a closet

Want one?

You can find them at Southern Proper monograms.

Mine is the 18" for 48.00

Tell them Susie Harris sent ya!

They have no idea who I am...ha! really

But they are a sweet company and I'm 100% happy!
pass it on

And I just thought I would not junk it all up...right.

Hence...one shelf ...remember?

More family pictures.

So here's just a sneak peek of my new office/workroom.

And you know what?

I would rip it all down in a New York second...

If Kaylee moved back.

hint hint Kay.

So did you have a great weekend?

  13. And re: your comment on my montly mentionables post..yes, you can get the Turbie Twists at Wally World. Also at Bed, Bath, & Beyond. They are super cute and comfy. They don't hurt my head or neck like a big, heavy regular towel does.
