Big

Today’s #photoadayjuly is “big” and I thought I’d merge a couple of posts for this one.  On Saturday I took on a somewhat “big” reorganization project, and because I’m a DIY nerd I photographed the process.

You know how girls have a lot of stuff?  Specifically a drawer in the bathroom jammed full of things like lip gloss and nail polish and hair thingies and, and… You know the drawer.  We all have one.  Ours had gotten completely out of control.  Mostly because of me and my many hair accessories, but that’s beside the point.  I FINALLY got a big enough burr in my saddle to do something about it, so I went to Target and bought a drawer organizer for inspiration.  Then I went to work!

 

Before: Oh. Dear. Lord. This is only the stuff that was going BACK in the drawer… never mind all the crap I threw out.
I cleaned the drawer. Then cut out a piece of canvas that I had in my pile of fabric scraps and “Mod Podged” the canvas to the drawer bottom to act as a liner. Pictured here is after painting a layer of Mod Podge on top of the canvas to give it a hard seal. The Mod Podge dried clear, so the end result was a clean looking B&W striped drawer!  -Please excuse the poor quality cell phone photo…
After (I): The organizer has a top tier slidey organizey thing (technical term). Here it is in the “forward” position.
After (II): The organizer has a top tier slidey organizey thing (technical term). Here it is in the “pushed back” position.

There are no words for how happy this makes me.  Everything has a place.  And it’s clean.  And every time I open the drawer, little angels sing while floods of light warm the deep cockles of my heart.  After I finished, I was so giddy about it that I literally jumped up and down in front of Rhonda until she went upstairs to see the end results (and then compliment me on how pretty it is… naturally).

I know, I know… I seriously need to be medicated.
