Handyman Garage Project

The September 2009 issue of Handyman Magazine had a great article on cleaning up your garage with a wonderful wall organizer.
My husband showed me the article and got my approval....and next thing I know...he is going to buy supplies and cutting out pieces.


The great part about this system, is that it allows you to customize for your needs. Since I work in real estate, I have lots of signs. And when I needed a sign, it always seemed to be behind or under something else. Look at how great this is!

 Loved how he made the brackets, so the signs would not slide off into the floor. Brackets for the brochure boxes, the arrow signs, and then the large ones.

 Next he added customization for lawn equipment, kites, & tools.
Btw...did I ever tell you how many kites he owns?  That's another story. 

We are going to buy plastic totes for the top shelves to keep things in that you don't use often.

 It got dark. He couldn't see his cutting lines and wanted to finish more...
How do you like this? He attached his flashlight, to the saw!

Tomorrow....I will give you a finished look at our project.

Loving my New Design

My new blog design is finally done! Thanks to Karen Valentine. I found her online by looking through blogs that caught my eye and simply searching blog designers online. My personal blog is simply a way of expressing the creative me...and she has designed my blog with that in mind.

I will be adding many of my favorite blogs in the next few days. These are blogs that I love to read about decorating, crafting and cooking. Did I ever tell you that I am addicted to blog reading?

Thank you Karen for the wonderful design! I highly recommend her if you are looking for a blog designer.

Changes Revealed

Here is the guest bath with its total new look. Old vanity was torn out, beadboard added, new paint, vanity, mirrow and fixture. I really love it!

Been wanting to do this in the living room for two years...saw something similar in Anthropologie in San Francisco a couple years ago and it has stuck in my head.  I took advantage of using a couple clocks with light turquoise tone in them to add to the rest of the color, I had incorporated in the living and the dining area.

More pics to come.....
