Under Cabinet Jar Storage

Under Cabinet Jar Storage //

I’ve seen jar storage ALL over the Pinterest, and I’m finally using the idea. My under cabinet jar storage is one step towards a more organized kitchen. Seriously, our kitchen is lacking in quite a bit: beauty, up to date appliances, and storage. For now, we’ll need to get started on the storage solutions. Some day we’ll work on the appliances and beauty, but it’s not a necessity. Sadly.

If you’d like to add some jar storage to your home, check out the full DIY over here on the Better Homes and Gardens Blog.

Hello and Happy Thursday! For whatever reason, this week has really flown by. I can’t believe it’s almost the weekend (yay), and that also means it’s time for my Better Homes and Gardens post! This week I found 14 Spring Cleaning Organization DIY Ideas for you to check out. Something happens in the winter… I get too busy and maybe a little lazy with the whole keeping things clean and organized.

EVERY year, right around the start of March, I feel the need to change things up. They really are awesome. To check out the whole list of really cool DIY’s, head on over to my Better Homes and Gardens post!

Mailbox Makeover DIY for Under $15!

Mailbox Makeover DIY //

I know it’s winter and all my plants are dead right now, but my front yard is REALLY bumming me out. A lot. I’m typically a fall and winter sorta girl, but for whatever reason I am so ready for the weather to warm up so we can get outside to build things and the plants can start growing! Until the weather changes, I’ll just have to stick to other projects. My Mailbox Makeover DIY (for Better Homes and Gardens) is actually something I could work on in my garage and house.

I LOVE how the mailbox turned out. I mean, the old box was pretty beat up and ugly to start… so maybe it wasn’t that hard to make it look nicer. Ha! My favorite part of this project: the pop of hot pink inside. We still have a ton more ideas for the front yard, but this little update has helped. Each time I walk up to my front door I smile, and yeah… I open the mailbox to look at the pop of pink (my neighbors probably think I’m so weird).

I’ve shared a bunch of metal painting tips (painting metal can be difficult), plus exactly how I updated my mailbox. You can head on over to BHG to see the full tutorial for my Mailbox Makeover DIY. Trust me, it’s an easy DIY. The work wasn’t really hard, but it does take a bit of wait time (for the drying paint) and patience. It took me a week to finish, but actual work time was about 3 – 4 hours.

Next up, I want to paint the front door. Probably black. I’m tired of the red. Maybe white? Hmmm… or yellow? Ha! I don’t know. We’ll see. What do you think
