On Wednesday we spent time building some much needed storage. My goodness does it feel wonderful to have a place to put some things away! We finished all of the built ins in our Master Bedroom Closet, and finally built this little guy for the bathroom 🙂White Bathroom Shelfpier 1 inspired tall cabinet

I love having a place to display a few things and store the essentials. I just painted it yesterday… in a painting frenzy. I will share all the details of how we built it- because it was pretty straight forward! white with blues bathroom

These baskets were from Jysk a while ago for under $6 each, and they fit perfectly. Baskets are one of my fave accessories for function and style. The glass storage containers were thrifted for $0.50-$1.00Daisies in IronstoneWhite Bathroom CabinetIt’s tall {need to anchor it to the wall just in case!} and functional. I love the white 😀 I painted it out in leftover Simply White from our Doors and Trim. Would you believe the base is a $4 yard sale side table? When I saw this from Pier 1 I immediately thought about turning my table into a tall cabinet. It’s just a little more interesting and feminine… and in a house with lots of boys I can use some more of that in my life.

It retails for $279.95… I’m going to show you how we built one for a lot less! But I will leave that for another day. They’re not identical but I was certainly inspired by the Pier 1 version.

I have so much painting to do and am slowly getting it off the list. I am really excited about sharing some of the changes we are making in the house. Let’s just say I want to build all of the things…

It must be said that I survived Home Depot with 3 kids- one of which weighs 23 lbs and was strapped to my chest for over an hour, during nap time, after lunch! I loaded so much lumber into my cart, and got brackets, and price compared… and I literally felt like I should write a book at the end of the experience. God smiled on me that day because none of my kids had to go to the bathroom?! Can you say miracle?

My 5 year old did have to be disciplined at the end because he was riding the lumber cart while not holding on {yes, both of my boys rode the lumber cart full of lumber, that I pushed with afore mentioned 1 year old strapped to my body} It was so awesome to be told “you’re the worst mom ever.” While I tried to give him a chance to listen, and the check out girl cheerily said “How are you today? Stressful being at Home Depot with 3 kids?” Seriously, I felt like super woman that day, but I also almost wanted to cry by the time we were done. Can anyone relate?

It was all worth it though. I think.DIY White Bathroom Free Standing Cabinet

We have had some MAJOR thunderstorms here lately. Some of the rain has turned to hail, and my beautiful healthy plants took a beating. Isn’t that just so sad? I love my garden and all that grows. While I know it’s part of life it is just so sad to see plants look like they went through a blender. Thankfully our little seedlings are up and thriving; they avoided most of the hail. I may or may not have gone back to the greenhouse this afternoon with my munchkins to get just a few more things. I did stick to my pocket cash budget though… no more plants for me this season! Unless it’s a tree… that’s different right?
