Industrial Farmhouse Style Laundry Room

Hello, friends! 

I am so excited to share Dallas' Industrial Farmhouse Laundry Room. 


This is one of the small areas that I am just thrilled with how it turned out! With a laundry room, we want it to be functional not only be beautiful to look at when using.



On the top shelf, we have the woven basket from Hobby Lobby. Always remember to use the Hobby Lobby 40% coupon from their website if the item is not on sale. 

In front of the basket is the glass mason jars in a metal rectangle container. All of these items are from the Target Dollar Spot. 

In the middle, the tin container holds dryer sheets. This is from Hobby Lobby. We, also, got this for 40% off.

On the end, the white storage container is from Ikea. We placed her dryel (at-home dry cleaner) items! She doesn't need these items often so we thought it would be the best place for them.


Don't you just love this Bible verse? 

"You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out. 
Deuteronomy 28:6"


The glass jar that we placed the laundry detergent in is from Walmart. 

The metal tray and the metal vase is from Target. Don't you just love this pop of color? Dallas was thrilled with how it just makes it so colorful and fun.

The flowers are from Michael's! Just like Hobby Lobby, do not forget to use your 40% coupon from their website.


This means so much to Dallas and me. I am so happy for Dallas that she is in Atlanta and following the plan for her life.

How do you decorate your laundry room?

Atlanta Goodwill Finds: Guest Post by Dallas


Hello Friends! 


I know a lot of you like a good deal! I do as well! Mom and I went to one of the many Goodwills in Atlanta. This one is off of Roswell Road. It is organized by gender, the type of item, then color. It isn't organized by size so you have to take your time here. 




This top is originally from Old Navy. It still had the tags on it. It retailed for $29.94. I was able to purchase it for $5.99! 
I tried to see if it is still for sale on their website, but could not find it. They do have similar styles on the website. Here are a few similar styles: Black and White TopPatterned Top, and Blue Lace Trimmed.

I just love everything about this shirt. The tassels are a perfect addition to the top. 



This top is from Old Navy as well. I could not find this exact style, but I do have good news! This similar style comes in two prints, one stripe, and multiple colors on the Old Navy website. 



This is one of the most comfortable cardigans that I have ever worn. I am so excited to have found this gem. The tapered sleeves make it perfect for a chilly evening in the summer or to wear in fall weather. 
You can look at Old Navy Cardigans here, but I could not see a similar one to this.



This top is so cute! I just love it.  
All of the tops were $5.99 at Goodwill versus $25-$30 each! 



This gem! I am in love. 
I found this at Goodwill for only $1.91!
Here are some different ones so you can see a price comparison: Benzara Galvanized Watering JugGalvanized Watering Jug, and Kitchen Comforts Pitcher.

What great finds have you found at your Goodwill?

Dallas Apartment Pantry on a Budget With the Dollar Tree

Hello, friends!

Welcome to the long-awaited apartment pantry makeover!


As most of you know, my daughter, Dallas, moved to Atlanta! She is living in a gorgeous one bedroom apartment. I wanted to help her be organized in her first place just to herself. Best of all, she was very excited to have me help her. 


One thing that comes with the move to Atlanta is the traffic. A good freezer bag is a must and the green bag on the bottom is a Publix freezer bag. I placed all of her other grocery store reusable bags in it. She likes to bring her own bags to the store so it worked out great to keep everything together. 

The colored baskets are from the Dollar Tree. The labels are chalkboard labels and we purchased them from Michael's. The tin basket is from Hobby Lobby and I added it for a different element of color. 


The white tubs at the top hold the items that Dallas does not need every day. They hold the extra rice for the rice container and all any other backup items for refills. You can find these at the Dollar Tree.

The clear containers are from Ikea. You can find similar here: 6 piece set and a 10 piece set.

The lazy susan is perfect to place the coconut oil, cocoa powder, peanut butter, and other similar items. It is from Home Goods. Lazy Susans can be a great addition to pantrys!


I love the pop of color these tubs from Dollar Tree provide. They are perfectly sized as well. The best part is how each one of these containers helps Dallas take inventory when its time to go to the grocery store. Dallas has worked hard to come up with a weekly grocery budget and not purchasing multiple items when she already has it on hand it a big help. 


On the left, we decided to keep her miscellaneous items such as rice crakers and popcorn packets. In the clear Ikea containers, we placed her Boom Chicka Pop Popcorn. 

Thank you all for coming along to see Dallas' updated pantry! We are so excited for her on this new journey! 

Take a look at the video here to see how I put everything together.

New Kitchen Pantry Makeover

Hello, friends! 

I am so excited to show you my kitchen pantry's makeover! I found that my pantry before the makeover was causing me more issues than helping me. I could not find items that I needed and I would purchase items that I already had on hand.

I also hated the idea of opening up the pantry door to see the unorganized mess that sat waiting to look right back at me. Now I am so excited to how organized everything is and I just love how it all came together.

The reason the makeover started was that I saw how much wasted space I had from the top shelf to the roof. I had my contractor come in and add to small shelves that were not as deep and would still allow putting baskets on them to hold extra items that I did not need to get my hands on every day.

This ended up being a perfect idea and I love the extra space. It's up high and I do need a step stool but I really don't mind because again these are not items I need every day. I also never put anything heavy on the top shelves.


Ready to take a look!

First, let's start off when you open the pantry door.


As you can see I have this white metal over the door rack similar to these White Rack (available in small and large)White Back of the Door Rack, and White 24 Inch Wide Adjustable Rack.


I purchased these from Amazon years ago. Here are some similar options in color from Amazon if you are looking: Home Basics Metallic Non-Woven Strap Bin Basket Tote (Small, Grey) and 2pk Woven Baskets in gray. Just make sure to check the sizes with your individual space. 


For these, I used mini spice jars. You can get these from so many places. Amazon has many options including Transparent Spice Storage Containers6pc - 5 oz Mini Oval Clear Glass Favor Jars, and Bail and Trigger Spice Jars, Set of 4


I can not even tell you how long I have had these two. I could not tell you which store I purchased from honestly! Here are some similar ones: Airtight Glass Canister Set of 3Anchor Hocking 2 Pack 67oz Glass Jars, and 2 Pack of Bamboo Cap 27 oz Capacity.


I like to keep my water bottles and paper towels in this bottom large storage baskets. I purchased this from Homegoods! I just love the neutral colors and how perfect the size is for space. 

I keep our step ladders at the bottom of our pantry as well. Here are some step ladder options if you're in the market: Small White Step Ladder and 16 inch White Step Ladder


I purchased the two larger round storage baskets from Homegoods as well as the smaller rectangle container. I like to keep our pasta, chips, and other larger items in the round baskets. I like to keep our tuna and spice packets in the rectangular one.


All of the glass containers are labeled for quick access. These are so great for many reasons. My favorite part about these containers is that I can see when I need more of a certain product. Right now, I need more grits for the glass container.


As you can see, everything has a place. This makes it pretty to everyone who sees your pantry including yourself, but allows you to know where each item is. 


On this shelf, we have the condiments, future salad dressings, cooking spray, and all the similar items. You can find similar baskets on Amazon here: Spectrum Diversified Wire Storage Basket in Chrome and Spectrum Diversified Wire Storage Basket with handles.

I hope you all enjoyed this post! You can see the Kitchen Pantry Makeover on my YouTube Channel below. Be sure to subscribe so you never miss out!

June Weekend Visit With Dallas In Atlanta

Hello friends! 

It is a new month! Let's welcome June with open arms and excitement for what is to come. 

One of my favorite parts of the month is to visit Dallas in Atlanta. This trip was Trey, Binx, and me!


I absolutely love my Happy Planner 24 Month Kit that I purchased around the holidays. It helps me keep everything organized. It, also, is so fun to decorate the weeks!


I have always heard of Paper Source, but never have been to a physical store. Dallas told me there was one in Atlanta so we drove straight to one! 


We all know my obsession with pineapples. How cute are these glasses? I just love them! I ended up not purchasing them since I wouldn't have many places to wear them.

Our next stop was the Ballard Designs Store and Outlet. 

The first table that I loved was this blue and white table! Just look at all the small details and how they work together on this table.




Don't you just love how they incorporated this pop of color!


The second table is more of a fall theme. Look how sweet these acorn plates are!



I know some of you commented on how you loved this turtle above from my Instagram post so I wanted to include him here!

Here are some of the pineapples that were in the store! Which pineapple is your favorite?



The third table setting that I loved in the store is this one below. The use of blues, browns, and greens were just perfect!




After a long day of shopping was behind us, Dallas mentioned this ice cream place, Jeni's, to us. We decided to take Binx along for the ride as they had an outdoor patio for us to sit with him. 

They stay open until midnight on weekends. This Jeni's is next to a restaurant with upstairs bar. They had live music which just made the atmosphere even better!


Look how darling the snapchat filter is for the area!


Jeni's ice cream is definitely a must to go try. You can tell the ice creams are definitely freshly made. It was absolutely delicious. While I was with Binx outside, Dallas and Trey got the ice creams for all of us. They even make their own waffle cones. 


This outdoor patio area was just beautiful. It was a great atmosphere to sit outside, listen to live music, and have yummy ice cream. 


Look how sweet my Binx is being! He absolutely loved being around all the people. It was great to see! He definitely will be coming on all of our Atlanta adventures. 


Look at my yummy white chocolate mint ice cream in homemade waffle cone! 


The next day...
I feel like we have started a tradition with Davinci's Donuts. They are just delicious. 


We bought (from top to bottom and left to right) Strawberry Cheesecake, Caramel Crunch, Chocolate Iced, Boston Creme Pie, Lemon Bar, Sprinkles, M&M, and Samosa. 

I hope you enjoy our trips to Atlanta as much as we have! You can see the video of the weekend HERE.
