Master Closet Organization

Some of you may have read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I did and went through the whole process about 2 years ago. I highly recommend it. I ended up donateing 20 bags of items!

Oh, how I heart a rainbow color-coordinated bookshelf like no other!!

Last Fall I finally organized my pantry cabinets and it took about 2 weeks and more money than I wanted to spend. But, totally worth the investment. Now if only I could get Reid to put the glass lid on the Goldfish crackers. Hopeless.

I feel like sometimes I do my best work when kids are home for the summer and we are all in chaos! I feel like cleaning and starting projects. So, that’s how I began my master closet clean out. Here are the super pretty trays that I found on Amazon! I love them.

EZOWear Foldable Bamboo Fabric Organizers

This is the crazy, hanging thing I used for years and I really needed to upgrade.

This tray business seems so much more clean & organized. I’m so pleased.

Bear approved.

White-Washing Tutorial on a FLAT surface now on YouTube

Hey!

Some of you mentioned that you could not see the video I posted last week of my personal update. Others were able to see it. I post all these on YouTube so you can just go to my channel or plug in Blue Egg Brown Nest on YouTube to see!

My White-Washing Tutorial is now up and what makes it a big different than my Weathered Wood Tutorial is that I did this technique on a flat, wood surface and it does work if you play with the paint. Originally, I thought you could only do the white-washed look w/ a textured wood like oak so that the paint would seep into the crevices and sit on the higher parts. I wanted to try the look on a smooth surface as I’ve shown here.

PS, the video is not edited and I showed most of my process so it’s a bit long FYI.

Here are some stills of the same transformation…

 

 

A Quickie Sideboard Transformation (because I didn’t take many pix!)

So, yes, that was my update yesterday that you may have seen about moving in the direction that I feel and honoring that. However, I did a few projects over the weekend that I wanted to share. If you are not following me on Instagram, hop on as I tend to share there first. Look up “blueeggbrownnest”.

Here’s a before and after of my sideboard….

I used Old White, Clear Wax and NO distressing.

The room is so much lighter! Happy.
