Finished Closet

Our closet is mostly put back together, things sorted and placed on the shelves, and everything nice and organized. I only have two boxes to go through and sort. Can I just say I love my restyled closet?!
You can see the boxes I still need to go through...once that's done, I will cover them and place them on the shelf above.
I placed my extra blankets on top of the chifforobe 

I hung this to use as a hook. It works great! I found it at Hobby Lobby in their knobs. Love the chippy look!

The shelves above got all organized:
Here the hook has a shirt hanging on it

I covered some plastic mesh baskets with some pretty fabric and added a band of the same fabric on the navy bins. They all have labels (well, almost all! )

And the spot above my shoe shelves? Well, this is what I did with it: I used a canvas and covered it with my beautiful fabric to make a jewelry spot.

I added trim and upholstery tacks, then hung two frames - one holds my earrings (with the addition of some mesh wire) and the other showcases a couple of necklaces hung on a mercury glass knob.

I took the rest of the tacks and used them to hang all my necklaces.

Placed some pretty containers on the shelf to hold more pieces like some bracelets:

And this beautiful dish from a sweet friend holds my post earrings:

I love my jewelry all out in one spot. So easy to find!

Finally, I added the banner ( sent to me by Vicky of "Life On Willie Mae Lane" ) with my word of the year "Balance". Thanks Vicky, for this sweet reminder to keep my life in "Balance".

 With my closet cleaned up, my life definitely has some balance happening! I feel so much joy and yes, peace, when I walk into my closet. Here's to neat organized spaces!

Farm Laundry Room Wall

This weekend I got the laundry room painted - walls, trim, and shelves. Yay!! It looks fresh and bright.

And because I got all the painting done, I was able to get the accent wall done ( thanks to my husband for his help!). When I began planning, I wanted to do something to the walls that would give it some interest. I thought of beadboard or a rough plaster texture but I wanted a more rustic look. Rough wood planks (as in old fence pickets) or what I really, really wanted was rusty tin. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough old fence pickets or somewhere to get rusty tin for either option.

I had just about decided to go with beadboard when I just happened to mention the rusty tin idea to one of my sisters. She said she knew where she could get some, so how much did I need? Yes! I quickly measured, told her, and in a few weeks had some tin panels. Perfect...only they weren't rusty. She told me the rusty ones were too far gone so she decided to bring me these. Ok, I can rust them…

Thanksgiving sign

I can't stand it...I was going to post this next week but I'm dying to show it off! I know, I know, now I will have to come up with a new post for next week. That's ok. I'm having fun with this and so enjoy it. You make it so much more so! So thanks for reading and leaving comments. I am thankful for you! Anyway, here's my farm mantel post:

My mantel needed help. Everything I placed there got lost against the brick. Painting it isn't an option - that was voted down very emphatically! However, I painted the trim around the fireplace to match the surrounding walls and ah, that looks better - blends instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.

 Also, it doesn't quite line up with the fireplace. Or the fireplace isn't centered on the wall. Who designed this anyway?! I can't tell you how many quirky things we've found in this house. I think it's  called character! ha.

To help it look better, I decided it needed a wooden sign. I picked a favorite sc…

Cozy Christmas Farmhouse at The B Farm

Hello my friends! Today I'm sharing The B Farm all cozied up for Christmas as part of the Cozy At Christmas Blog Tour. It's five days of Christmas goodness - I hope you will pop over and visit the other ladies. I'll share the links at the bottom of my post.

This year, I'm crazy about plaid! What? You too? To me, it just says "cozy" and "homey".

To begin, I dressed the table with red plaid placemats and red napkins from Audrey of Timeless Treasures. The plaid stockings are actually silverware holders my friend Susan gave me a couple of years ago. So cute!
The red pillows on the bench were wrapped with red and white plaid ribbon. They remind me of presents! The green plates with pinecone motif were a Good Will find many years ago.

Then in the kitchen window, I hung some crocheted lace also from Audrey. It's not plaid but it says farmhouse cozy to me!

Isn't it pretty?

The cute red and white checked apron (another wonderful item from Audrey) han…
