Gave my laundry room a little pick-me-up.  There's still a lot more I can do with this room, but I thought I'd share this small bit of progress just so I have something to share!

First the before picture.



And after!



Amazing the difference a few baskets can make!  Most of the clutter is still up there, but out of sight now in the baskets. I got them at Michaels for 50% off.  And I added a rug from Walmart just to give a little more color to the room, it was so stark and cold before.    There's still plenty more I can do in this room.  I'm thinking maybe a wall mounted ironing board and maybe a card table for folding clothes   And there's wall space for more shelves, or maybe some art, if I can find the sort of wall art appropriate for a laundry room (trip to Hobby Lobby, anybody??) Wish I could think of a way to cover up where the washer hoses go into the wall, that's pretty ugly....but hey, it is just the laundry room. Not like anybody sees it but me!

If anyone has any more tips for sprucing up this small space let me know! :)


I'm not good with blogs. I've started a few in the past, and they always end up petering out. I just don't seem to keep up with them.  But here I am again...starting yet another!

What is this one about?  Well, its the new year. I don't really bother with making resolutions usually, nobody ever keeps them, but this year I really want to put my mind to making my home feel more like...well, home!  First I should probably mention that I'm a military wife, so no home ever ends up being home for too long.  We're new to Las Vegas now,  been here for about 6 months and honestly, I don't like it. It doesn't feel like it will ever feel like home here, but I realize that I'm stuck here and I may as well try to make the best of it!

I live on base.  I don't know if you've ever seen base housing before, but its pretty basic and boring.  White walls, ugly white tile floor that always looks dirty. And this one is tiny. Like, really tiny.  Two bedrooms and very small living space.   So despite having only been here for a few months, my house is a disaster because I have no place to put anything!

I was just letting the mess take over and being depressed about it...but then I started checking out pinterest and blogs and have gotten so many ideas for organizing and for diy projects. I've got so many ideas floating around in my head now that I want to try!  So I'm hoping I can spend this year working on all that. Hence the start of this blog, where I can share my progress (hopefully there will be some!) and projects with anyone who cares to see it.  You will get to see photos of the mess that is my house right now, and hopefully photos of it looking much better later!  Though...I do have a toddler (and a husband!) so I'm probably doomed to always have a messy home. But hopefully I can make my small space work a little better for me and make it feel more like home...until its time to move on again.

I may post other stuff too. About raising my wild toddler, or rants about military life.

Or maybe I won't post much of anything, as usually ends up being the case. We shall see. ;)
