over the last few days i’ve been cleaning and organizing like crazy.
wiping out the pantry, packing up clothes the kids have outgrown,
re- arranging the laundry room and sorting through the toy bins.
(i feel like i finally have time now that we’re on summer break.)
so, the other day in the middle of my cleaning spree
(while i was neurotically wiping off the bookcase)
i looked up and saw papers.
piles and piles of papers.
papers with no place to call home.
i knew we needed a place for these stacks and fast.
within minutes i was on craig’s list and found this file cabinet for $25.00!
it was just what i needed!
pure, sweet luck.
i went to pick it up and on the way home grabbed a couple of cans of the most lovely teal spray paint.
and 2-3 coats later…
here she is!
all painted up and looking oh, so sweet.
i love that color.
that lovely, lovely color.
be still my heart.
after i awkwardly drug it inside and got it into place
i stuck a dry erase board to the side using
double-sided foam tape.
i then took some of jonah’s old flash cards
snipped them down to size
and slipped them into place.
the perfect finishing touch. : )
i filled her full
(and i do mean full)
of those sky high stacks of papers.
and, i’m a much, much happier girl.
