As I mentioned last week, I’m getting ready to put my house on the market. So I can’t be making a mess with a bunch of new crafts or super-involved recipe development right now. Even if I wanted to, I’ve put a lot of my supplies in storage. No pressure cooker to can preserves. No ribbon. No seed starting supplies. No fun! That said, I’m also incredibly bored; obviously I have the time to be writing! It occurred to me last night that I put a ton of work into my house years before I started the blog, so maybe now is the right time to share all those projects.
Today I want to share with you how I’ve used the inside of my bedroom armoire doors. I have a feeling you’ll be learning a lot about me in the next few weeks, and one of the lessons will be that I cannot let the back of a door go unused. Doors are such great resources! They give you an additional vertical surface for storage that can be quickly hidden away. I love it!
Here is the right door of my armoire. Gosh, this picture looks a mess but It’s actually quite tidy in person, I promise. Anyway, I didn’t want to drill any holes in a nice piece of furniture, so I used Command hooks to hang up all my necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. If you zoom in, I’m sure you’ll find that it’s pretty much all necklaces.
Another thing that you’ll probably learn about me soon is how much I love Command adhesive. I use it all over my house! Sure, it’s great for seasonal decorations but it’s also great for more permanent applications where you simply can’t (or just won’t) be putting a hole in your wall. I’ve had the same two Command adhesive outdoor hooks on my front doors since 2012. My front doors are French doors, so it’s not like I’m going to be drilling into the glass to hang a wreath!
We’re all just pretending to lose socks in the laundry, right? I mean, that can’t be real. I have to assume that we’re just pretending to lose socks because that’s our schtick for some reason. Anyway, while I am not going to play along with this sock-losing silliness that everyone is making up, I will say that I don’t bother making sure that both members of a pair of socks make it into the same load of laundry. I use a divided hamper so at least my whites are with all the whites and my colors are with all the colors, but each section of the hamper holds well more than one load.
