Here are the instructions for the pocket organizer I made for our entryway armoire.
I finished the inside of the armoire! It needed some paint and some more organizing.
Here is the armoire as you last saw it:
I’m occasionally inspired to paint something. It usually comes from a need to have something on an empty wall! We had a spot above our couch that I thought at one point I would hang a black and white photo. That didn’t happen so I decided I would give a painting a shot.
Here’s the living room before:
The entryway in our converted church is spacious but doesn’t have a coat closet. I knew I needed some hooks for hanging and somewhere to hide all of the shoes. This is how it looked before:
I get this question all the time. When I tell people that we live in a church for the first time, I think at first they don’t believe me then the questions start.
I gotta tell you, this was our 6th home purchase, and this is by far the coolest house I’ve ever lived in.
What’s it like living in a church? Honestly not much different than living in a regular house. Yeah it looks like a church from the outside but inside it kinda just looks like a house. We have vaulted ceilings and some stained glass but we have a kitchen, living room, and dining room just like everyone else.
Ok, so not a call 9-1-1 sort of emergency. But when your washing machine goes out that’s a bit of an emergency in my book. Our washer was old, maybe as old as I am, ugh. I knew I wanted to redo the laundry room but it really wasn’t at the top of my list. Until the washer went out. Then I decided that before the new washer and dryer were delivered that I would paint and put up new shelves. Why do I do this to myself?

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
I wanted to add some more color to my son’s space. I refinished his storage bench with his current favorite color, bright green. I had some paint leftover from that project so I decided to paint his door!
The door to his bedroom is just an ordinary interior door.
I love glass bottles. I’m always keeping my eye on the recycling bin to make sure no one is throwing a treasure away. They are so versatile, you can make a quick centerpiece or small arrangement of garden flowers.
Here is my collection:
