Slowly but surely, we are getting ORGANIZED!!! Omg y’all it seriously feels soooo good to be going through drawers and cabinets and closets… throwing stuff away… realizing what we have that has been buried in chaos for three years now… I think my very favorite part is when it is all complete and I get to label everything. So oddly satisfying to write “REMOTES” on a tag even though the container clearly has remotes sticking out of it. LOL. Some, well most, baskets aren’t quite so obvious with their contents but either way it makes my brain feel clear and kind of ready to tackle the world to be honest. As you probably gathered from yesterday’s blog post. Ha! And if you missed it, A HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT went LIVE yesterday! Exciting things coming to Addison’s Wonderland!
Last week I got to work going through the tangled mess we call our family room TV cabinet. Which is from Restoration Hardware by the way. A GREAT RH Outlet purchase several years ago. There were literally like 4,000 cords for who even knows what along with board games and cards all scattered about. Every time we went to play anything we would have to gather up cards and pieces from the shelves and other boxes all just to play one game. So since this cabinet gets used an absolute TON AND it’s in one of our most lived in rooms, I decided it was next on the list! I picked up quite a few bins and baskets for our entire home once I got on my organization kick a few weeks ago and then I narrowed it down to these bins and this little basket to get out TV cabinet organized. I did one bin for cords after Mark went through them and tossed out quite a few, one bin for technology gadgets and then one for DVD’s. I also used a cute little utensil holder for remotes so we could easily store them all away or pull them out to grab the one we need. Otherwise they seemed to end up lost or hidden between sofa cushions. I also added a fun new pillow to my very favorite chair in our home and this “Life Is Beautiful” sign for above the TV cabinet. WHICH was just added to Addison’s Wonderland Boutique! Slowly but surely this room is coming together! AND the organization of it feels SO so good. Here is a peek at the cabinet BEFORE and TODAY!
