Organization Updates & Reflections… plus a sneak peek!

How is it already February?!Conversation-Hearts-Candy-Bowl-hands Crazy how time flies these days! We wanted to quickly check-in this morning with the SparkNotes version of our organization updates from January, while giving you a few hints about what’s in store this month here on the DIY Playbook. You ready?!

We loved the fresh start 2015 brought and used it to motivate ourselves to give some much needed attention to our everyday organizational dilemmas. We tried to tackle each organizational problem with an affordable, attainable solution. So far, these solutions have definitely held up! If you missed some of the projects, here’s a list of links from last month’s noteworthy organizational tutorials:

    My husband and I opened up some walls to turn a bedroom into a den for a more open floor plan (we live in a one floor condo) and we’ve been talking about turning the old closet area into a built-in cabinet/countertop/bookcase situation to house a little bar area and decor. Kinda challenging given the totally uneven measurements but two years later we’ve FINALLY gotten started! Hoping to finish up the cabinet portion this weekend. Our first time using a Kreg jig that I always see on so many blogs.

    • Wow you guys are hardcore DIY’ers…that’s amazing, Katie! Good luck finishing up the project. I’m sure it will be amazing.
