Organizing a drawer: I planned to do this a long time ago, I had planned to revamp what I call the pit a couple of months ago…actually I call anything that is horrific, a pit. My sister recently asked if I had any nail polish she could borrow, I gave her a look of annoyance because the nail polish was buried in the bottom of the pit. “Do you really want to see this? It’s bad” She felt brave and we dug through what could not have possibly been a drawer, a single drawer, a small drawer. You couldn’t close it, not even an inch.
When I did the shelf liner in the cabinets in my living room I did not do a before picture, I was too caught up in the moment but I promised Julie from Sum of their Stories that I would not be forgetting the befores when I did this drawer. I do not think that terribleness was quite captured, but here we go.
I started by removing everything from the drawer, cleaned it and lined it with wrapping paper that I picked up from HomeGoods. For organizing all the doodads I used clear modular containers that were once used for my makeup (also from HomeGoods). The most notable item that was cleaned up were the pony tail holders: I used a caribiner to hold them and keep them tidy. Do you know how crazy those things drive me? They probably drive you mad too, so I don’t need to tell you. You may not believe this, but almost everything that started out in the drawer was put back in the drawer!
Now I just need to decide how I want to refinish the cabinets that the drawer belongs to!
I just started as a consultant with JewelScent a very fun candle company, and I will be telling you more about it next week!!!
