I don't know what has gotten into my husband lately but I sure wish he would share some of this new found energy. He's been in nothing but jump in and get things done mode and I love it.....just wish I could keep up with him.
So yesterday I came home from work and he had completed two surprise projects. Our neighbors were getting rid of some of their closet shelving so we took it off their hands :-). Now I'm not a huge fan of the wire shelving but it was free, it works, and honestly its not like people are staring into my closets so I'm not overly concerned of the appearance of them......a future project maybe but for now I'm into functionality over visual appearance when it comes to closet space. So first up was the big storage closet upstairs. At the moment it holds wrapping paper and party supplies, large picture frames we haven't decided where to hang yet, and old kids clothes and toys we are planning to donate or give away etc. I've been wanting shelving in there so I can actually organize some of the kids clothes into what is going away and the new clothes that I've purchased at a huge discount and hold onto until they grow into them. I love when back to school rolls around and I've already got half their clothes purchased at the previous years clearance prices!!! The one issue I've found with doing this kind of shopping is you need an organized place to put the clothes.....I think this closet will be that space and I can finally organize my storage bins so I actually see what they have and what they'll be in the market for next season. So here is what my husband did:
So last year I told my husband we needed more storage space for kids stuff......I was so overwhelmed by the amount of books and toys they had but there was just not enough places to neatly store them. We came up with a plan to put some shelves in the kids closet, and he made some shelves but they were never installed........well now they are!!!
So there are a few more things coming down the pipeline as well that I'm super excited about. Just to give you a clue I found my husband doing this today:
AND, I found this on the kitchen counter:
Hope you all are enjoying this nice jump into summer and are busy working on some projects as well....until next time.
