Office and Laundry Room Update

Back in August we decided to update our laundry room/storage area and turn it into a functional office space for the Mister and a much more comfortable laundry room for myself.  This area is accessed by going out of our house into our carport and then there is a little room off the carport.  It's been cold and ugly and dirty...not exactly the place you'd like to be doing laundry or working, right? Here is a little reminder of what we did to the room in August. And here ...continue reading

Consignment Time!

Closet Before and After

Sometimes all it takes is a little motivation and another person's eye to get your closet working well for you.  I had just that situation recently when a client wanted to redo her closet.  We didn't have a lot of time to work together so we tag teamed her closet.  She spent a late night pulling everything out of her closet and getting rid of many things.  She left me with the clothes that she wanted to go back into her closet and left me alone, in charge.  I was able to ...continue reading
