I wanted to make new basket liners for the baskets I had in Isaac’s room the past two and a half years. They have held his diapers and wipes. It is time to give them a girly makeover.
I made a new liner out of the stripey stripe fabric that coordinates with baby girl’s bedding. I did not put a tie on it, I just used elastic. But I may hot glue a flower or a ribbon bow on it later.
The size is perfect for holding the baby wipes container on one side and a stack of diapers on the other. I didn’t want to take apart the old liner in case I want to use it down the road. It was also serged and I didn’t want to do the math to figure out how to accommodate using a regular sewing machine.
So I searched and here’s the great tutorial I found on curbly.com. It is quick and easy and well explained.
There is something about the weather changing, the flowers blooming and the May showers that makes me want to ORGANIZE. …
Do you remember back in February when my wonderfully talented father-in-law and my husband built these amazing lockers for my mudroom/laundry room?
Well my only complaint about the room then was this horrible wire shelving that held all my cleaning supplies. I hated that my junk was all out in the open. Well I have been on the lookout for used cabinets for a while now and finally found some in my budget. For $60 I got 6 feet of cherry cabinets. I decided to paint them white (I know a cardinal sin in a man’s world – to paint wood) so they match the lockers.
I then proceeded to collect all my cleaning supplies from the various locations that I kept them (shelving, garage, under sinks, etc). HOLY MOLEY! Let’s just say if all the cleaning supplies in the stores were sold out I could keep my house clean and my entire neighborhood for about a decade! My name is Beckie and I am a chronic stockpiler!
In my defense I probably paid less than $10 for everything in this cabinet, SERIOUSLY! Most of the stuff was free with coupons and/or rebates. AND YOU KNOW HOW I CAN NOT RESIST FREE! But that is another story, for another day. Doesn’t it look purdy and organized though?
I am still painting the cabinet doors but I wanted to get the bases up so I could get all the stuff in it. I love to be organized.
I got my organizational skills from him…(the one to the right of course, but hopefully the one to the left will inherit that gene)
and I got my stockpiling skills from her…She taught me that 40 cans of cream of mushroom soup is a must, 30 cans of diced tomatoes is never enough, and one must keep at least 4 shelves full of canned goods in order to be a good housewife. LOL!
