Easy Bathroom Organization Update

by Dinah Wulf

I recently visited my in laws in Wisconsin.  I love going there especially because my daughter Mia gets to see her Grandma and Papa.  Rarely getting to see her Grandparents is definitely a drawback of living so far away from them (my parents are on the east coast).  I particularly love antique shopping there as well… the stuff is SOO much better and less expensive!  While we were there we decided to give a quick and easy bathroom organization update because…well…we wanted to AND it’s fun (I know I’m a Geek).

So, today I just wanted to share a quick little post to show you the before and after of our project.  Here is the BEFORE.

It’s a sweet little bathroom, but the only storage is a small cabinet under the sink and the medicine cabinet.  My husband and I went to Lowes while Mia got some quality time with Grandma and Papa.  We had the intention of getting a brand new sink and vanity but after I took measurements, we couldn’t find an easy replacement because of the dimensions so the vanity will have to wait until we have time to research online.

We ended up buying a new toilet seat and an over the toilet cabinet. I put it all together while we watched television in the living room.  Working with my hands and putting together things like this is therapeutic for me for some reason.  In a short time, I assembled it and we got a much more organized bathroom!

Check out a recent posts I did for making your bathroom a little more spa-like and a few more bathroom organization tips!

Easy Thrift Store Storage Jar Upcycle

by Dinah Wulf

thrift-store-craft-jar (1)

I had the most successful thrift store shopping trip the other day.  I will tell you all about it and share all my thrift store finds next week. Today, I wanted to share with you what I did with two items I found for less than ten dollars total. With a glass storage jar and a cute little quail knock knack I found, I made upcycled a thrift store storage jar into some craft storage.

Materials

  • Glass Jar with a lid
  • Adhesive stencils
  • Glass paint
  • Small Spouncer
  • Craft Paint
  • Ceramic bird (or something similar)
  • Oven

I found this large glass cookie jar for $5.99 at the Goodwill with a wooden lid.

thrift-store-craft-jar (3)

I also found this cute little quail bird for $2.99 and couldn’t resist buying it.

thrift-store-craft-jar (9)

I started off by centering the adhesive stencils to spell “Craft Junkie”.

thrift-store-craft-jar (4)

Using a small spouncer brush, I painted on the stencil.

thrift-store-craft-jar (5)

Here’s what it looked like when I was done.

thrift-store-craft-jar (6)

You can peel off the stencil immediately.

thrift-store-craft-jar (7)

Allow it to dry for one hour.

thrift-store-craft-jar (8)

Meanwhile I painted my lid and bird. To easily paint the bird, I put a pencil in the center and placed it in a jar to dry.

thrift-store-craft-jar (10)

Once the paint was dry, I used strong industrial strength glue.

thrift-store-craft-jar (11)

thrift-store-craft-jar (12)

Once the paint is on the jar dries for one hour, place the jar in a cool oven.

thrift-store-craft-jar (13)

Turn the oven to 350 and leave it in there for 30 minutes. If you do not want to place the jar in the oven, you can also allow the paint to cure for about 22 days.

DIY Craft Storage Jars 15 Minute Craft

by Dinah Wulf

15-minute-craft-storage-diy (1)

Woo hoo!!! I get to participate in another Craft Lightening today with Country Chic Cottage and 30 Minute Crafts! Last time I did a tutorial for how to make a rope vase and this time I’m sharing how to upcycle craft storage jars in fifteen minutes or less!

Materials:

  • Any jar(s) with a lid
  • Drawer knobs
  • E6000
  • Paint (optional)

Instructions:

I was looking for craft storage jars ever since I started making this flower cluster headpiece and this red, white, and blue headpiece because all my craft supplies were building up!  I purchased these three multi-purpose jars from the 99 cent store. 

15-minute-craft-storage-diy (2)

I had these wooden knobs left over from an old dresser I upcycled.  I used some for a little kitchen play hutch I made and had exactly three left for this project.

15-minute-craft-storage-diy (3)

I decided to paint them, blue of course!

15-minute-craft-storage-diy (4)

Tip: I left the screws in to make it easier to paint.

Next, with a little E6000, I glued the knobs to the lid after the paint dried. An industrial strength glue is great because you will be able to pull or twist the lid without worrying that the knob will fall off (take my word on this one).

15-minute-craft-storage-diy (5)

That’s it!  SUPER easy upcycled craft storage jars in less than 15 minutes! 

15-minute-craft-storage-diy (1)

You can use these cute little buggers for things other than craft storage of course!  Consider using them for spices in your kitchen, office supplies, or bathroom necessities.  You can also use different types of knobs, depending on your décor. 

Introducing My Skinny Cow WoCavé

Organizing Your Bathroom with Command Brand

by Dinah Wulf

I wanted to make a big THANK YOU for Command Brand for sponsoring this post.  I am actually a very big fan and have been using Command Brand for years.  I have hung my family photo collage with them and I have also hung my tribute wall to 90’s grunge wall with Command Brand strips (I know, I know, it was for my husband’s birthday last year). I’m really excited to share with you some helpful tips for you to stay organized in your bathroom.

Command Brand is introducing a new line of bathroom organization to help keep towels razors, loofas, and other toiletries off the floor and the counter.  These work much better than suction cups.  I used a medium bath hook to hold my hand towels near the sink.  I found this to work better than the towel rack.  We have overnight guests come often and the towel rack is needed to hang their bath towels.

Command-Brand-bathroom-organization (1) (560x372)

I used another medium bath hook behind the door so that my guests could hang some clothes while taking a shower or bath.

Command-Brand-bathroom-organization (4) (560x385)

The toothbrush and razor holder works well in my guestroom shower.  Although we have a built in shelf, this little caddy comes in handy for small items to keep them out of the way of the shampoo and conditioner bottles.

Command-Brand-bathroom-organization (3) (560x358)

Right outside the shower door, I hung the large towel hook, which holds up to five pounds.  This will come in handy for guest towels or clothes when getting in and out of the shower.

Command-Brand-bathroom-organization (2) (560x372)

Finally, I used the large shower caddy inside the cabinet door right under the bathroom sink.  I’m using to store cleaning supplies because it holds up to seven and a half pounds.  It’s nice because it freed up a lot of cabinet space for other things.

Command-Brand-bathroom-organization (5) (372x560)

I hope these tips help!  My guest bathroom is now ready for visitors.  Who’s coming over??

Thanks again to Command Brand for sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% mine.

Six Fun Painted Furniture Ideas

by Dinah Wulf

Six Fun Painted Furniture Ideas

After spray painting a few projects this week (tutorials coming soon!), I started thinking about some of the fun painted furniture projects I’ve done.  I wanted to re-cap five of my favorite ones.  After gathering these projects together, I realized that I spent less than $100 for these five pieces total!  Crazy!  I spent about $30.00 on supplies… man I’m cheap (well, thrifty)! SOOOO, here are my six faves…

Red Upholstered Wooden Bench

I found this red wooden bench for $5.00 at a local garage sale.  It was towards the end of the day and the lady just wanted it out!  I ended up re-painting the same red and upholstering the top.  It’s now a fun and colorful bench that sits at the foot of my guestroom bed.

Gray Garage Sale Night Stands

You know that garage sale I was just talking about? Yeah… I got these night stands for $5.00 a piece too!  Score!

Coral Pedestal Makeover

This one was a Salvation Army find that I HAD to have. I saw it and left. Thought about for the next few days and went back to buy it. I asked my Facebook friends what color to paint it.  Love how it turned out!

Stenciled TV Tray Upcycle

These TV trays were sitting in my coat room closet for YEARS! They needed a little oomph so that I could take them out again.

Blue Thrift Store Shelf Makeover

I found this beauty for $5.00 at Goodwill.  I fell in love with the lines and knew that with a little TLC I could give it some personality.

Painted Kid’s Step Stool

This was a fun recent tutorial I posted.  I bought this step stool for $7.00 at Goodwill and added a cushion to match a play kitchen hutch I made for my daughter

 

Etched Glass Laundry Detergent Container

by Dinah Wulf

etched-glass-laundry-containers (4) (560x384)

I’ve always thought that all rooms in the house should be beautiful and well organized.  This includes rooms like the laundry room. Being a busy work from home mom, it’s important to me to love my home because I’m here so much! Today I wanted to share a tutorial on how to make a pretty etched glass laundry detergent container as well as 3 tips to help save you time in the laundry room. 

Here is what you’ll need to make your laundry detergent container:

  • Glass container with a lid
  • Glass etching cream
  • Adhesive stencils
  • Paint Brush
  • Tide Liquid HE

Instructions:

Step One: Make sure your glass container is clean and dry.  Apply the adhesive stencil to the glass. 

etched-glass-laundry-container (560x402)

etched-glass-laundry-containers (1) (560x372)

Step Two: Using a paint brush, generously apply the glass etching cream and leave it on for 5-10 minutes. 

etched-glass-laundry-containers (2) (560x372)

Step Three: Rinse the cream off with water and remove the stencil.  Fill your container with Tide Liquid HE.

etched-glass-laundry-containers (3) (560x369)

Although laundry is a chore, added touches like a pretty etched glass container or a well-organized laundry room makes it seem a little less like a boring routine.  Here are 3 tips that I use to save time in the laundry room and make this task a little less mundane.

Tip #1: Sort as you go. Sorting is my least favorite thing to do when it comes doing laundry.  I use a hamper that has three compartments.  I separate my laundry by lights, darks, and delicates.  It makes it easy to just grab each bag to throw in the washer without having to sort it first.

hamper (560x540)

Tip #2: Separate small items.  I use a mesh bag for all small undergarments.  Also, sock clips come in handy so that you don’t lose pairs.  You can keep a container of clips near your washer for easy access.

Tip #3: Organize your laundry space.  Have your Tide Liquid HE, dryer sheets, and mini trash can within arms-reach.  That way, you can quickly add your detergent, throw in a dryer sheet, or clean out the lint trap with ease.

Hopefully this quick etched glass craft and my three laundry tips will help make your laundry time fast and fun!

Cleaning after Spring Cleaning: De-clutter Your Home

by Dinah Wulf

If you’re like me, you may have already finished your spring cleaning (I am far from being a procrastinator). After you finish cleaning the nooks and corners of your home during the spring cleaning exercise, it is important that you de-clutter your home and organize your living space.

But why spend another weekend organizing when you spent the last one scrubbing the house meticulously? Cleaning takes out the accumulated dirt gathered during the winter season, but organizing makes the house worth living in. Believe it or not, de-cluttering helps you de-stress and organize your life. A well sorted home with no extra mess is a dream come true.

Here is how you can pull off a DIY home organizing job in less than a few days. Ask your family and kids to help you out; you won’t be able to sort (and throw out) any clutter without their help!

Put Everything Back in Place

declutter-your-home (3)

Has your laundry basket been lying somewhere in the hallway all this while? Put it all back where it belongs. You cannot sort and organize things unless they are in their right place. It would be much easier if you place all items in their respective rooms, and then organize and de-clutter in every room systematically. Remember: if something does not have a place, you probably do not need it.

Let It Go!

declutter-your-home (2)

If you don’t need it and it can’t be upcycled, let it go. We often stack up on unnecessary items and end up with a lot of junk. Say goodbye to anything you don’t need, and ask your kids to do the same. Give the things away rather throwing them away. Maybe setting up a garage sale will be a good idea. After all, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure!

Identify Trash

declutter-your-home (1)

This goes especially for kitchens and bathrooms. You are likely to discover many food tins, pudding boxes, and spices that expired some time back. Similarly, your kitchen might be home to useless bottles and jars. Bathrooms are also cluttered with useless items like old toothpaste tubes and shampoo bottles, and medicine cabinets often have some expired pills. Get all of this trash out of your way.

Sort and Store!

declutter-your-home (4)

Now that you have gotten rid of all the junk, sort and store the items methodically. Be creative in how you use the space in rooms. It is best to store small items in boxes and cabinets. If you do not use something on a daily basis, you can store it away in a box. Organize the storage boxes and cabinets as well; store similar things together and label the boxes. You can add a few more shelves at home if there is little space to store the things.

In case space at your home is insufficient, you can store items in a self storage unit. These units are convenient and easy to manage; some self storage providers like Uncle Bob’s Storage also have smartphone apps so you can manage your storage online.

Now that you are done designating new spots to all the items, make a vow to carry out an organizing exercise regularly. Maybe you could re-evaluate the clutter situation at home every month. Mark your calendar and keep up with the de-cluttered zone you have just created for yourself. A clean, organized and mess-free home requires continuous monitoring and maintenance.

Reading Nook for Kids

by Dinah Wulf

DIY-book-nook (4)

I saw this fantastic idea using spice racks to hold books on Pinterest.  I love this reading nook idea because it takes little space, and adds charm and character while encouraging good reading habits to our little ones.  When I went to IKEA however, these wooden spice racks were nowhere to be found.  I decided to keep looking and stumbled upon some photo ledges that I thought would fit perfectly for a reading nook I had wanted to make for my daughter for her room.

Here is what her wall looked like before.  It was plain and sad with an off centered organization board I made last year. Blah and boring!

DIY-book-nook (1)

I found a fun cherry blossom decal and added it to the plain walls along with two photo ledges at a height that would make it easy for my toddler to reach. I hung them off set from one another.

DIY-book-nook (2)

Here is a close up.

DIY-book-nook (7)

I purchased and painted some wooden letters to spell out “books” and “read” with acrylic craft paint.  I didn’t originally plan on it saying “read books” but I found an old curb side pick-up frame that I thought would look cute around the words.

DIY-book-reading-nook (8)

 

DIY-book-nook (6)

Here another photo.  It turned out quite nice.

My daughter actually picks up and reads her books more often now because they are displayed.  No longer hidden in her organization cubes, her books are now easily accessible and a constant reminder that she has them!

100 Creative Ways to Recycle

by Dinah Wulf

I am very close to publishing 500 posts on this blog in less than two years! Geesh!! Looking back, many of these posts (if not all) are focused on reuse and repurposing.  I thought I’d put together a round-up of some of these amazing ideas I have found over the past several months.  Once you get the repurposing and upcycling bug, you see the world differently.  All of a sudden, you become a hoarder of toilet paper rolls and spaghetti jars.  You even think twice before selling a piece of furniture on Craigslist.  I stopped at 100, but I know there are many more!  They range from furniture transformations, craft projects, and home décor and organization ideas.  Some are quite simple, and some will take some DIY experience.  Here are 100 Creative Ways to Recycle.  Here we go!

Storage Ideas for Kids

by Dinah Wulf

The older my daughter gets, the more toys and books she has.  I’m always looking for inventive and fun storage ideas for kids.  There are so many inspiring ideas out there that I thought I’d put together a round-up of my favorites.

This clever book sling from Etsy made from a double curtain rob is great.  I would have never thought to do that.  I love the fabric as well.

Storage Ideas For Kids (6)

I love this!  It looks like stacked tables with drawers for added storage… and it’s purdy too!

Storage Ideas For Kids (1)

This is one of my favorites!  Being an organization freak, I thought these personalized file crates are a brilliant way to organize art projects, report cards, certificates, and more for each child in the house.

Storage Ideas For Kids (10)

This is great for older kids.  Using clear glass jars for storage adds color and style while making it easy to see what’s inside.  You can print out these labels here from BHG.

Storage Ideas For Kids (7)

Another fantastic and ingenious idea from BHG are repurposing plant hangers as wall toy storage.

Storage Ideas For Kids (5)

A clever way of saving space, this is perfect for nursery with limited space.

Storage Ideas For Kids (2)

This is from one of my favorite sites, Apartment Therapy.  This DIY project uses pillow cases and embroidery hoops!  I love this!

Storage Ideas For Kids (4)

Argh! Why didn’t I think of this!  These are wooden spice racks turned book shelves.  You can find these at IKEA for about $4.00 apiece.

Storage Ideas For Kids (9)

A brilliant trash to treasure idea, this old dresser turned wardrobe storage or dress up station is adorable!

This is a great way to reuse baby wipe containers and a great way to stay organized!

Recycled Map Drawer Makeover

by Dinah Wulf

Recycled Map Drawer Makeover (8)

I just recently redid my craft room.  It wasn’t complete when I recently published the craft room makeover reveal.  I think it definitely needs a chandelier of some sort… I’m on the hunt!  Anyway, I bought these maps at a local gift shop.  It is actually gift wrap, however old maps work well too.  I decided to cover my craft drawers with these maps to go with the lovely calming blue hues I have going in the room.  Here is my Recycled Map Drawer Makeover.

You will need:

  • Piece of furniture you are covering
  • Maps, gift wrap, or decorative paper
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Craft knife
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint Brush
  • Knobs (optional)
  • Cutting mat

Here is the BEFORE.

Recycled Map Drawer Makeover Tutorial (2)

First, I removed the drawers from the shelving unit and took off the knobs.

Recycled Map Drawer Makeover (2)

Using a ruler and a craft, measure your area and cut out the desired size on a cutting mat.

Recycled Map Drawer Makeover Tutorial (1)

Lay the cut map and align it on top of the drawer.  Using your craft knife, mark the area where your knob will be inserted.

Recycled Map Drawer Makeover (3)

Remove the map and apply Mod Podge to the drawer using a paint brush.  After doing four drawers I found that the easiest way is to apply the Mod Podge to the entire area at once and then place the map on top smoothing it out from left to right.  If you do this application enough, you may find your fingers or wrists hurting.  Quick tangent alert!  As I am writing this post, I’m thinking about how much we do with our hands nowadays.  Especially if you’re a DIY girl.  I am now looking at the endless amount of hand and wrist conditions .  You may not want to look if you get easily squeamish.  Anyway, after securing the map, use the screw from the knob to poke out the hole for the knob.

Recycled Map Drawer Makeover (4)

Apply a layer of Mod Podge on top of the map.  I applied three coats, allowing it to dry in between coats (approximately 15 minutes).

Recycled Map Drawer Makeover (5)

Once the drawers are dry, insert the knobs.

Recycled Christmas Cookie Tin

by Dinah Wulf

Recycled Christmas Cookie Tin (8)

Every year for Christmas we get several yummy treats as gifts… it’s the best!  It seems, however, that every tasty indulgence comes in a tacky Christmas tin.  Why is that?  I love receiving these tins because they are so useful.  You can use them for organization in your pantry, craft room, office, or bathroom.  This time I received one that was the perfect size to hold my daughter’s crayons.  It is wide enough to show several colors at once, which seems to be important to my toddler.  Here is how I made a crayon holder out of a Recycled Christmas Cookie Tin.

Here is the BEFORE photo.

Recycled Christmas Cookie Tin (1)

Here is what you’ll need:

  • Christmas tin of your choice
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint brush
  • Decorative Paper
  • Scissors or Paper Cutter
  • Ruler

This craft project is SO easy that I even had my daughter help me (I probably don’t even need to write a tutorial, but here it is anyway!).  After all, this was for her.  First, I let her choose the paper she wanted. Using a paper cutter or scissors, and a ruler to measure the tin, cut your paper to size.

Recycled Christmas Cookie Tin (2)

Using a paint brush, paint on a thin coat of Mod Podge or watered down glue.  Put your decorative paper on top.  Smooth out any air bubbles.  Paint another layer of Mod Podge over the top of the paper and allow it to dry completely (approximately 15 minutes).

Recycled Christmas Cookie Tin (3)

 

Recycled Christmas Cookie Tin (4)

Repeat this process to cover the rest of your container.

I applied two coats.

Craft Room Ideas

by Dinah Wulf

Craft Room Makeover

We moved into this house in February of this year and we never used the office.  I housed all my craft supplies in the closet, and had an old desk, filing cabinet, and office chair in it but that was it. So this year when my husband asked what I wanted for Christmas, I thought it’d be the perfect opportunity to turn the office into a craft room.   I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share my reveal and put together some helpful craft room ideas.

Here is the room before with a picture of the closet.

Craft Room Before (1)

 

Craft Room Before (2)

Eventually, I would like to do some more garage sale and thrift store shopping and refurbish some furniture to add (that’s why you can’t see the right side of the room…. Ha!), however to start the organization process, IKEA had an explosion in this room.  We bought the shelving and craft table there, as well as the blue metal kitchen cart I used for my sewing machine and fabric. If you look at the first picture above you can see the bar stools I upcycled as well.  Here’s a close up of the kitchen cart.

I loved this table because it had extra storage in the legs.

Craft table with storage

I also organized the drawers according to materials.

Craft Room Drawers

I added wire baskets from the dollar bins at Target for added storage as well.

Craft Room Organization

The DIY colored glass Mason Jars I made were perfect to organize the items I use all the time and made them easily accessible.

Craft Room Organization Recycled Jars

I hung a magnetic board on the side of the shelving unit and added little magnets to small plastic bottles to store some notions and small beads.

On the top of my shelving unit, I displayed my white frame, a free curb side score.

Craft Room Storage Ideas

I also placed my repurposed spice rack up there…

And I used some glass containers and made some recycled craft jars filled with DIY necessities to display on top (both pretty and useful).

Glass Jar Craft Storage

On the unfinished side of the room I hung my craft organization board I made from a free, unwanted, and ugly painting I found.

Lastly, I hung a little inspiration from a Blogger Socal Social I attended.  It was part of my swag bag!  It says, “Your spark can be a flame and change everything” by E.D. Nixon.
