Dresser Redo & Linen Closet Makeover

So I've been busy again....lots of cleaning, reorganizing & spray painting of course. Must be Spring Fever hitting me! Course it is also due to the fact that I'm having a jewelry party here on Sun. & a few of my aunts are coming who haven't seen the house yet.

First I had to post this cute pic of LuLu. This is what she wore to school today, my little fashionista. She loves anything bright, loud, sparkly & shiny!

Ok on to the linen closet. I've been meaning to reorganize this for a while now, it was looking pretty shitty.

I hate how sheets never look very neat.

I took one of the shelves out because some of them were just to close together. I put all the beach towels way up top. Next was the sheets. I had seen on another blog a while ago how this person had folded the flat & fitted sheet as neetly as you can then you put them into the pillowcase & fold the rest of the case over. They ended up looking like a rectangle pillow. This way each set is all together. I like it this way MUCH better! The next shelf is for all the facecloths & hand towels.

Then the last 2 shelves are for the bath towels.

I even color coordinated them, I don't really know why, but it does look nicer I think. And now I even have more room to buy some more towels now if I want!

The top drawer of the cabinet I keep the toilet paper & soap in. The bottom drawer is for the hair curlers, hubby's electric razor & the travel cosmetic bags.

My bathroom isn't that big so it was kinda hard to get the whole closet in the same pic. So much better!

In between working on the linen closet today I tackled another one of the boys dressers. This is the before:

And the after:

Of course Braedon loves this one too. I'll be doing their other two dressers as well. Yes my boys have a TON of clothes. And I was sooo sick of them having mis-matched dressers. Normally I don't care too much about furniture not "matching" but 3 of the 4 are hand-me-downs that have definitely seen better days! Then once I have finished all the dressers I will show the entire room for you all to see.

What do you think? As usual I love getting comments!

Have a great night all!



  1. Your closet looks waaay better and so does the dresser! Very nice. :)

  2. Your closet looks so good organized!! You cracked me up when you said it looks shitty. LOL love it! The dresser looks good too! Come check out my giveaway!

  3. Both look much better! I love the red handles on the dresser. I need to take a page from your book and do something with our linen closet, but it's terrible - so I keep avoiding it.

  4. LuLu is too cute, love her style!...Oh! gurl I know you sure made a change in the closet, great job looks great, I need to do the same.
    Love the dresser re-do.
