Fleeting Days of Summer - July 2015 Wrap Up

Fast fleeting are the lazy days of relaxing on the beach.  Soon we will exchange the fireworks and BBQ chicken for books and brown bag lunches. Sleeping in days, Camp fire cooking days are almost over! 

What have you done with your summer and the extra time with your kids?  Are you happy with how you've spent your days?  If yes, then its time to celebrate!  If no, you've got just a few days left of summer vacation and it's time to make the most of it!

My Favorite Organizing Quotes

Motivation can come in all forms. Right? Sometimes we just need someone {like me} to help kick us in the rear to get moving! Sometimes, it helps to have things clearly written out to post on our fridge, pin on Pinterest, or just share with others. I have found great quotes all over the web. I encourage you pick your favorites and share them, and visit the blogs where I found them. Organizing and decluttering is possible...let me help inspire you!

Teen Boys Bedroom Final Reveal

My sixteen year old son likes a few of things - golf {among many sports}, Star Wars, and Legos. For a teenage boy to be excited about his room decor is no small feat! I think I accomplished it! You might remember how I have been slowly getting his room made over - first, the wallpapered wall to look like planked wood, then the desktop made from laminate flooring. Last was this project - industrial shelving!

Small Bathroom Storage Solution

Having a small space poses problems for most. But, for me, I look at it like a challenge! We have this one teeny tiny bathroom! It's great because it has a shower, a toilet, AND a sink. But, it's tiny and there's not much storage in there. It's located near our back door so it's great for our guests who come over to use that restroom, but we also like to have it for overnight guests to use, as it's a spare bathroom for us. So I came up with a great storage solution!

How to Fake a Plank Wall: Teen Boys Room Update

I have been compensated and provided materials to share this fun project! 
While I've been compensated by Walls Republic, opinions are 100% mine!

Our 16 year old son is getting a makeover on his room. The last time we painted his room he was 8, so it's long overdue! I suggested an "industrial look to him" and showed him pictures and he was all for it. Along with this look is the fun planked wall look and I wanted that for his room, but I did NOT want to do that much work. Thanks to wallpaper, I was able to fake it in under 2 hours!

RV Organizing and Storage Hacks {Small Spaces}

So, maybe you don't own an RV or have never had any kind of interesting "glamping" desire, but keep with me here. I have come up with some small space - like an RV, too - organizing and storage hacks from our brief six months of owning our own RV. I think that these will definitely help you think outside the box. And, if you have a friend who RVs or you are thinking about it in the future, pin this post and pass it on! Here are my hacks for getting the most use of a small space in your {home or} RV.

I have been compensated and provided materials to share this fun project! 
While I've been compensated, opinions are 100% mine!

I shared a few weeks ago how our teenage son is turning 16 and so it was time to give him a little update in his room. I proposed this to him and he seemed very happy with "Mom's ideas" -- he really doesn't care too much about what his room looks like but is ready to let his red wall go....however, I'm doing one thing at a time.
