This 1920's cottage located on 2 acres in Oceanside is full of antiques, wrought iron, wooden furniture pieces, annnnnnd (wait for it) clutter! In six hours we covered the dining room, living room, AND bathroom. The results are here:
The kitchen table was a dumping zone for the overwhelming amount of beauty products.
Melani's family can actually eat at the table now!
This hutch stored many odds & ends- burned out tea light candles, tons of change, puzzle pieces, lids for water bottles, you name it, it found its way here.
Now the hutch is restored to its original purpose of a bar station & a displaying area for some cool antiques.
This nook was overflowing with old baby bottles, candle holders, rags, & lots of clothes and toys on the floor.
Now the nook is cleaned out and looks fresh. We even added a little seasonal cheer :] yay for Fall! The dining room area is now complete.
On to the living room.... piles of books, CDs, DVDs, paperwork and more toys and change.
The entertainment center was organized by getting rid of all CD jewel cases and storing the disks in 4 big black CD binders. We also got rid of all the DVD movie cases and stored the DVDs on CD spindles for easy access- kids movies on one and regular films on another! Books went to the bookshelf (remember the one we organized last week??) and paperwork was sorted through.
The bathroom was an explosion of hair products & accessories, jewelry, makeup, bath stuff, and lotions. Remember the kitchen table? Well now that that's all cleaned off, all the products found a home here in the bathroom.
This built-in organizer in the bathroom was not being utilized! I thought this storage space was awesome. We organized to the nines- lip liners, lipsticks, lip glosses, eye shadows, mascaras, eyeliners, brow stuff, facial serums & moisturizers: it all fit perfectly here.
Even the floor got a makeover!
