Creative Ideas for Organizing Craft Supplies + Many More Organizing Tips

Is being more organized one of your goals? It is for most people, including me.

There are so many ways to organize things. Whether you use boxes, baskets, bins or bowls, it's a great opportunity to get creative and show your personality. I love to think outside the box and use items for something other than their intended purpose as storage, like picnic baskets, wooden crates, or as you'll see in this post, milk glass that I've picked up inexpensively over the past few years.

Refinished and Refreshed Drop Leaf Table - "Inspired By" Themed Furniture Makeover

What inspires you? Isn't that a great question? I'm inspired by so many different things. Nature, architecture, blogs, magazines, pinterest, HGTV, my daughters, and the list goes on. And around here the past few days the weather has been very spring-like and I've been inspired to set out some brighter things around the house.

I recently revived an small, old, wooden drop leaf table that had seen much better days. It will be a perfect table for a small entry, a small eat-in kitchen, or even a night stand. I wanted to give it a bright and colorful makeover and used a cheerful, vintage-looking green paint.

A cute,cheerful table that got a refinished top and freshly painted legs. Great instructions for the makeover including paint and stain colors.

This fun project is part of a monthly themed furniture makeover challenge that some of my furniture painting friends and I put together to inspire you, our readers. There are some super creative and talented ladies in this group and I'm thrilled to be able to join them. This month's theme is "Inspired By".

Pinterest Inspiration ~ Anthropologie Pompom Garland

Have you ever had something that you really didn't pay much attention to the first time you saw it, but then it kinda grew on you? That's what happened to me and those cute pompom or snowball garlands that are all over the place. The first time I noticed them was a year or so ago and they didn't exactly move mountains for me. But then I kept seeing them in different spaces and grew to love them.

You've probably seen them on Pinterest or Anthropologie or other blogs since they're not exactly new.
