A Pocket Full of Projects

The projects around here have been on the small side lately but just as important.  A few little things add up to a lot!  

#1)Let's Keep the Paper Off Of The Floor
We replaced the toilet paper holder in the girls' bathroom.  The old one (which wasn't that old) kept dipping down and the paper would fall off.  Aggravating!

Enter this sturdy looking Glendale brushed nickel holder from Lowes.
It covered the holes from the previous holder and so far so good....
I also updated the switch plates with a new look.

#2) Re-Magnetizing the Chalkboard Wall
 My daughter's magnetic chalkboard wall wasn't holding up as well as it should (probably because I did the paint job).  She added another coat of magnetic chalkboard paint and POW!!
Much better!

#3) Butterflies Are Free to Fly
 We also finally got around to hanging up these pretty butterflies in her room (a Christmas gift from her sister).  We used a small clear Command hook on the ceiling and they can now flutter away.

#4) New Life for an Old Lamp
She found this bright thrifted Ikea lamp at Goodwill over the summer.
We were looking for a new bedside lamp but when she saw this one, she knew her desk could use some more task lighting and was smitten.
I love how it pops agains the aqua walls.

How about you? Have you been up to any little (or big) projects lately?

Love these "up-dos"..very nice! We've been quite busy..guess I should post before and afters. These past 2 weeks have been crazy..we put in wood floors, I painted the laundry room, we tore out a kitchen counter and are now looking for an island, and we opened up a wall. Next...will be the bathroom!! :)

Sometimes all the small jobs feel as rewarding as one big job. We have been working on changing out the blinds in our house. We have completed 3 of the rooms and have many more to go. Wouldn't it be great if homeowners got a Lowe's gift card each year for home improvements? That would be awesome! : )

I love the yellow lamp, it pops so much against the aqua walls!

And those butterflies are awesome!

Our toilet paper holder breaks all of the time. I get so frustrated with it! But, we are moving soon, so I'll let the building handle updating that!

i love the style, its very simple but elegant to look at..it should be well organize and need to look good cause its so messy when you just put it anywhere
