ORGANIZING THE MONICA CLOSET

That closet. Everyone has one. The one you’d be mortified for your mother-in-law to see. The closet where everything ends up… things that need to go to the Goodwill, that picture frame you don’t know what to do with, wrapping paper, coloring books for when your friend’s kids come over, that candle holder you love but just don’t have a place for it yet, the Christmas ornament that rolled under the sofa and you didn’t find until after all the Christmas…

Cha-cha-cha-cha Changes

Yep, we’re back at it with the guest room switch-a-roo. Like we mentioned in this post, we’re basically starting all over again and transforming the once airy, nursery-like room into something more cozy, fun, and modern rustic. To start off, we stripped the room down to the “bones” and painted the pool blue walls a deep, moody gray… Now that the room was painted, the first thing on our to-do list was new bedding. After searching high and low online, I found…
