Well that's quite the title for a mish-mash kind of post...
Last week when I was organizing "the un-mentionables" I knew it was going to lead to more work in the bedroom (and no not that kind of work - get your mind out of the gutter!!) I'm talking about organizing the top of my dresser...
We have no vanity area in our bathroom, so I needed a place to store and put on my make-up each morning. It has been relegated to the top of my dresser. Back a few months I purchased an organizer from Home Sense that I used to corral all the goodies on top of the dresser. (the cute black and white damask pattern I love!) But even that was bulging at the seams.
I knew I need to get my jewelry and perfume out of the equation to free up some space on the top of the dresser and get things more organized. On a trip to Home Sense again last week, I found a cute shelf in the clearance aisle...and it works perfectly to hold my perfume and organize my jewelry. ($20)
The wood is distressed and has a rusted metal inlay. I moved the artwork I had there and added a couple of extra nails to make sure it was sturdy enough to hold the weight of the perfume bottles and the jewelry.
It is close enough to my "make-shift" vanity to keep everything within reach. I also cleaned out some of the lotions and potions and added a small three drawer organizer to help corral some of the stuff I couldn't do without!
It's now less cluttered and more organized. It makes getting ready in the morning much easier and faster.
One more stop on the Organization Train is completed.
How's your house coming - are you organizing today too?
