Our Grown-Up Closet

We had a small closet, our friend enlarged it and all it had was a shelf and a rod. We were fine with this. We added cube storage with baskets and it worked for awhile. Then we did our room, had the storage crawl space discovered and moved the cubbies in there. We have been at a loss as to what to do with the closet. We bought dressers at IKEA to put on either side of our bed but they ended up being too large and awkward looking. Then we put one the closet and one to use in the guest room. A very temporary solution.

We decided to check out The Container Store. Nice stuff and good ideas but very pricey. We inquired what one of their systems would cost for our little closet and it would have been $500, but with delivery and installation, that brought the total to $800. Uh, no. In the end, my hubby did Lowe's and bought a Rubbermaid system for about $200.

Here it is:


Some painting needs to be done, but right now, we are very happy with the result. My stuff is on the right, his is on the left. Please note my husband is a proud clothing whore, God Bless. The upper shelves do not have much but will come in handy when sweater season kicks in that is for sure. Oh and a little brag here, the knit hand bag you see on the door, there are two but one is hidden, I made them and they are fabulous.

So there is our grown up closet in our grown up bedroom.

Cheers!

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

Theresa Burger, I love, love, love your resin rings.

Ahhh, one of my favorite all time songs by Dead Can Dance called Indus. It is sublime.

I AM ON A MISSION

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe


I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Vintage Ice Box

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…

Irish pensioner living in a 280-year-old cottage with no modern conveniences

Irish pensioner who lives like we all used to back in the day. Good for her. Read here.

Sometimes it is best to disconnect. To get back to the land, to remove ourselves from the news, read a book, or just take a walk and be present.

Side note: I have to admit that running water and flush toilets are my most favorite inventions so camping is clearly out for me. :)

Have a great day.

Cheers!
