House into Home-take 2...

Hey there!  Well today was another successful day in the world of organization.  As I mentioned before, I am taking 1 room at a time... after 2 years of things gathering-- it is taking a while to purge all things unnecessary.

Scott went golfing with his dad today, so I cranked up the iHome and went to town.  I was in town so much so that I missed 2 calls and 2 text messages.  I meant to take a few before pictures, maybe subconsciously I knew that it would be too embarrassing so I just 'forgot'... we'll go with that. 

The victory was won at mission 'De-Crapify':


Yes, I love my granny chair- sobeit!  I call it that because it was a handme down from my grandparents when they moved.  Not gonna lie, most of my house if full of handmedowns, and I love it- for now.

I would love to eventually paint and re-cover the chair above.  The tricky part is... I don't have a CLUE even where to start on a project like that.  I would love someone to help me with this project... just sayin........... let me know if the Lord presses it on your heart to take this on w/me :)



These MU items are temporarily here... until our MIZZOU room (AKA: the basement) is completed.  That is another project that we will get started one of these days.

So in my 'need-to-find-a-home-for-everything-or-throw-it-away' mode today... I came across a craft project I started a few months ago and never finished.  

Well, internet, today was the day... IT IS FINISHED! My newly re-purposed picture frame from college became my weekly menu board!

Before and After:


Well, Scott has homework to do tomorrow... so looks like I'll have another afternoon to work on making our house... our home!

Until next time... stay classy, internet.

  2. if you need a book for encouragement and practical ideas of this nature, check out Organized Simplicity, you can also buy it for an eReader, I read it in a recent Seminary Wives Class about Time Management (home management, organization, etc.) and found it SO helpful! Looks like great progress made :)

    1. I like the organizing part... the deep cleaning is a little anxiety provoking :)
