spring cleaning and then some
i've been really focused on the idea lately of spring cleaning, almost to the point where it's become an obsession. i've been spending inordinate amounts of time in the hardware store's paint section ogling new and bright colours and staying up all hours helping my sisters paint their rooms.
one of our goals is to re-organize one of their closets - she's got a pressing need for space and i conveniently have a pressing need to make it look pretty. we've recently pulled up her ugly old carpet and replaced it with lovely new laminate flooring and the next victim on our hit-list is the closet.
i've been looking through some of martha's organizing and creative ideas and am completely in love with the notion of painting a lil bit of colour in peekaboo places like the closet - it's like a slightly-less-committal solution for my love for bright colours. when i came across the picture above, we decided to use it as inspiration for the closet - a lil burst of unexpected pink makes everything just a little bit more fun! i'll be sure to post pics of it when we're done.
meanwhile - in the spirit of spring cleaning, what's your best de-cluttering and organizing tip?
share it in the comments section and i'll randomly draw a winner on friday to win a set of my favourite lil magnet clips - in any colour of your choosing!
