Christmas Decor | Our Space

Today I thought I would snap a couple pictures of our Christmas decor. We currently live in a small apartment that fits our current needs. However living in a small space is tricky. Why? Well when I am out bargain hunting I am always finding amazing furniture deals, and decor ideas however they do not always fit in our small space. Hope you enjoy taking a little peak into our humble abode.

And MERRY CHRISTMAS ❤

Free Finds: DIY DECOR

Just picked up these 4 things today for free. Thanks to helping out a friend, she was cleaning out a bunch of things and I found these four items I had to have. The star I have been looking for everywhere. I want to use to from now until christmas time so I am trying to decide how to change it up. Blue does not fit the colors in our apartment. I am currently deciding between spray painting it metallic gold, or covering it in twine. Thought about maybe sanding it and staining it dark wood. I would LOVE to hear your thoughts! Any ideas? Suggestions?

Walk in Closet | Before + After Pictures

Today I got to organize the master walk in closet. It took me about 2.5 hours {including time talking on the phone distracted}

(All pictures taken on phone)

What I did with this closet was take out EVERYTHING on the top shelf and on the floor except for the three things they asked to leave there. Then I brought in the storage organizers I had available and began filling them up with things that belonged in closet. I found alot of things that don’t belong in a clothing closet. Isn’t that the downfall of any closet? It becomes the catchall for any and everything. So I sorted out what needed to be put in storage, what needed to be taken out of brown boxes and put in plastic bins. I added a hanging clothing organizer in the middle which I like because I think it gives the closet balance to not just have one. Overall, over 6 boxes of stuff was condensed down into the plastic bins you see in closet. I took out 2 boxes of photographs as motivation to actually put them in photobooks and one bin of summer clothing out to be put in attic. Otherwise everything went right back in closet- just where it belonged though.

The bins I had available to use – I actually didn’t use them all (not sure why laundry baskets are in this picture)

Those are all the boxes I got rid of that had things in them.

Of course FREEDOM comes from Jesus Christ. But I still find it important to say

****** HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY *****

&& thank you to those who have fought for to enable the United States to be as free as we are. I know I have yet to truly grasp just how free we are here. We are blessed.

While it is a freezing cloudy so called summer day here in the Pacific Northwest my family and I will still be headed to the Park to celebrate fourth of July. The weather forecast for today doesn’t go past 65 degrees. I think I will be having a talk with the clouds before we go.

Here is a an ode to 4th of July. Star Spangled Banner by a lil singer with a BIG VOICE.
