With all my cleaning, throwing out, giving away, selling, purging that is going on,
I have done a little organizing and redecorating…
via Instagram and Facebook.
And it’s fun!
It all started with some washi tape. I had no idea what to do with it.
One suggestion and donation via Instagram lead me to this:
Now I just need to get it hung up in the craft room.
My second project started with a tool crock I have had for a few years.
And believe it or not, I had to take out some of the tools, because there were too many!
Since I use most of them, I decided to upgrade to something different.
It was my plan to find something white and simple at Target, but I forgot when I went there.
During one of my cleaning spurts, I found a cute pail/bucket, and put it to use!
Yup. I love it!
So I shared it on Instagram, which shared on Facebook.
Little Prairie Girl mentioned using a magnet on it to hold recipes.
Yup. It works!
Yesterday, my ‘coffee table’ was bothering me, so I went to work.
I started with this:
I knew I wanted to use the basket and include the truck somehow,
but my mind wasn’t in the thinking mood at that point in time.
So instead, I share the picture on Instagram which shares to Facebook,
and got some great suggestions.
~Put magazines or books in the basket and the truck on top of them.~
~Plants in the basket.~
~Wrap books in plain paper and wrap them together with fun string/twine.~
But this is what I did before most of the other ideas came in.
I figured I was on a fun pail/bucket kick,
so I decided to keep it going!
It is now the fashionable and functional home for my remotes.
I did put some magazines under the truck as well.
I thought about wrapping them in string/twine,
but I still read them!
So that didn’t happen.
But overall, what was fun about this for me was getting fantastic input from people on Instagram and Facebook.
On Instagram, I got tagged in a few pics of people sharing how they kept their kitchen tools.
I’m a visual person, so it’s great they can take a picture and share how they display, store, use their items.
I know Pinterest is a great resource,
but sometimes it’s just overwhelming with too many ideas.
Where have you found inspiration/ideas for your organizing or decorating projects?
