Here is my latest video on my pantry organization. Hope you enjoy! -Nichole
Hope everyone has been doing great! I know it has been a minute since I have blogged. I have been a bit under the weather for the past week. Feel much better now so back in business :). Wanted to show you all some great and easy organizational tips for your jewelry.
This is so easy to do. Simply take a piece of linen fabric and hot glue to the backing of the frame. Remove the glass from the frame (you won't need it). You then can simply hook your earrings on to the linen fabric and makes for a beautiful look. You can do this with a huge frame and hang in your closet to store your earrings. Even the small one that I did hear is great for your bedside table.
Using a large beautiful bowl is a great way to store all of those bangle bracelets ! I used this beautiful beaded bowl that I purchased from Havana Vintage in Northern Virginia. It is the perfect size to house all of my bangles and makes it so easy to get to them and to put them back in place.
Operation "Transition Out Of Boyd's House" complete! So I wanted to set up some type of organization system in our garage to handle everything that is not staying in our home. So someone gave me this great organizational tip for how to handle items that you are not keeping in your home. I love the system and it will keep me on top of filtering those items out of the house.
So basically I have a bin for items that I am returning to the store, borrowed from someone, donating and selling. So as I come across things in my home that fall into any of these catagories I just simply place them in their bin. Then I can easily get to them when I am headed to run errands and can drop them off where they need to go.
I got the bins from my local Lowe's store. They run approximately $8.00 per bin. I think it was well worth the investment. Well hope you all have a wonderful day!
Well I finished setting up and organizing the little coffee station in my kitchen. I wanted a place in my kitchen to house all of my coffee and teas along with my Keurig machine. So I found this great wicker cabinet at pier one that fit perfectly. Below is a video tour of my home coffee bar.

Above the coffee bar I framed four photos that I took of my silver teapots. I had purchased the frames from pier one and then I needed prints to place in them. I was talking with one of my dear friends and she encouraged me to take photos on my own of my teapots to use as my prints in the frame. I loved her idea and how it all turned out. Here are the pictures

If you have a coffee/tea bar area in your home please share any tips and ideas you may have. I love to gain ideas and inspiration from others. Hope you enjoyed!
I had a great time today making my anthropologie inspired teacup lamp! I am very happy with it. I also made a youtube video of me making the lamp. The video is in two parts. You can see both parts below. Hope you enjoy!

What a beautiful Sunday! Well anyone who knows me knows that I can be the queen of take-out. Well hubby and I are really getting tired of all the take-out food. So I am on a new journey to cook dinner each day this week. Well in doing that I thought this would be the perfect time to share my spice organization system that I set-up in my home. Here is a picture of my spice drawer:
A few months ago a good friend of mines and I were talking and I was telling her about my dilemma with storing my spices. I tried baskets in the cabinets (which I found not to be user friendly) and spice racks (which I am not a fan of displaying my spices). Well she gave me the best solution which I loved! She told me to get little spice jars and store my spices in a drawer instead of the cabinet. I so loved this idea and the convenience is amazing!
So one weekend she and I headed to Ikea and I found these spice jars pictured below (so of course I loaded up on them). You can find them at Ikea for $3.99 for 4. You cannot order them online from Ikea so for those of you who do not live near a Ikea and want to try this you may want to try World Market.
They also have them for the same price and quantity. I actually like World Markets better due to it has the shaker feature. Tip: Before purchasing the jars make sure that your kitchen drawer size can fit the size of the jar.
So I am using the drawer right next to the stove for convenience. I broke out my trusty labeler and labeled the jars and alphabetized them so that when cooking I can easily find my spices. As you can see, since setting up my system I have purchased more spices so I need to invest in more jars to keep a uniformed look.
TIP: Initially I was having a problem with the jars moving around when I opened and closed the drawer. Easy fix: I purchased a small tension curtain rod and placed behind the jars and it holds the jars in place perfectly.
So I have to say that this system works great for me, and is so very easy to set-up and maintain. Now it does looks like I need to go out and purchase another 3 sets of jars to get my spice drawer back in order (since I have purchased new spices). Yet another item to place on my to-do list :). Hope you all have a beautiful day.
