Closets are a girls best friend!

This is my daughter's closet before, (Yikes) it usually has white doors, however I took them off to organize it all up and  now decided to keep the off. (notice my youngest playing in the corner she thought it was the greatest thing ever!) 

Here is the organized version much nicer! I used wrapping paper for the background to help spice it up, then I have ALL her leggings, and dance clothes in the two pink bins that I found in the Target dollar aisle.

Well after a very productive weekend of cleaning, crafting, and blogging, I think I finally got the whole blogging thing down for the most part ;) I also took Lillybug to buy school supplies today! She is starting kindergarten in about 4 weeks ahhh I can't believe my little girl is going to be in big girl school!

Powder Room Makeover

Powder Room Makeover!

I had searched all over for a picture of what it looked like before but was unsuccessful :( so with that I will just have to describe it instead, it had dark purple walls with tan accents. It was nice but, I was inspired to change it up shabby chic style from the little white table that I found at the flea market for a steal!

Just love my Mr. and Mrs signs!
The table that inspired it all!!!!!

DIY Growth Chart Ruler

DIY Growth Ruler! Perfect for keeping track of your little one's as they grow!
First I purchased a piece of 1x8x6 wood at lowes for about $5.67 and stained it( Stain used pictured below). Next, after it had dried overnight I used a measuring tape and made a tiny marks  at every inch with a pencil. To make it look like a authentic ruler I had the lines be different sizes. I then went over the lines with a paint pen that I found at Wal-Mart for $1.97

I had attempted to paint the numbers on but, I was not to fond of them so I made a trip back to the store and found these at Wal-Mart for $6.97 they just stick right on and seemed to be the perfect size! I bought a nail in alligator picture frame hook and voila!

The Finished Product!
