Dilemma SOLVED.

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

By nature, I'm a semi-neat person.  I can't stand food dirtiness, so I pretty much want a clean kitchen 24/7 and I see to it that it stays that way for the most part.  But, I can tolerate a lot of bedroom mess.  Clothes, shoes, jewelry, dust... I'm not nearly as picky about the bedroom as I am about the kitchen.  But, the top of my bureau was driving me insane.  I just didn't know quite how to fix it.  Then it came to me.
The before:  
Ughh, I feel like I'm airing my dirty laundry for all the world to see... Yes, I am a mess!
And the after:
Yes, the jewelry is a bit haphazard in that (that being a fruit stand I got!) but it's way better and I know where things are for the most part...
Voila!

  6. looks great! i am a collector of trays and the sort. they're so pretty and functional. i find that if i have a place to put things, even if its still a bit disorderly it looks much better. little by little, right? ;)

  7. Girl, this is nothing. My mess laughs in the face of your mess. My mess could eat your mess for breakfast.

    Also, the fruit stand is gorgeous!

  18. It's perfect! We have that same couple figurine, given to me by the teaching mentor I had in college. It's neat to know we have the same knick-knacks.

  19. Just so you know I don't think you were that messy before, but of course, we all have our personal 'clean' standards!
    Love that idea using a fruit bowl for jewelry! Especially love you hanging your earrings from their hooks :)
