For the next two weeks you’ll enjoy visiting 12 creative blogs, 12 amazing bloggers, and 12 organized home tours filled with tips, projects, and inspiration to get you organized!
Welcome to your first stop on the Organize Me Pretty house tour series!
I’m so excited to kick-off off the Organize Me Pretty house tour series with a few favorite organized spaces and solutions right here in the Carmona household! I hope you enjoy…
My Living Room Storage Projects
Another name for my living room should be “the all purpose room” because we really do live, play and work in here…which kind of means the storage in here has to be a beast!
Creating beautiful boxes, baskets, and other storage types is only half the battle… coming up with a system to maintain our precious items was the other half of the battle! You can read more about my Puzzle Storage system, Library Book basket, Disc Storage here, Paper & Fabric storage, and my Painted Jar storage.
My Organized Kitchen Spaces
My favorite part of the kitchen is what is behind the closed cabinet doors. Opening up those doors reveals an endless variety of amazing dinner options!
I store all my dry goods in containers, including a large variety of beans, rice, grains, and baking goods. You can read all about my bakers cabinet here.
I also keep all my spices organized where I can reach up and shake a “dash of this” while cooking stove top. Then nearby are a variety of herbs…some for cooking, others for wellness.
My Upstairs Hall Storage Space
It’s just one bookcase, and yet it makes all the storage difference in the world! I house everything I need to accommodate guests in my upstairs hall. From the sheets I use in their rooms, to slippers and toilettries to make their stay perfection.
An Organized Bathroom Space
I realize that it is often the less “romantic” spaces (like the bathrooms) that need the most organization, but it keeps my life simple and sweet… and frankly, that’s all the romance I need out of decor! 😀 Is it odd that the bathroom has some of my favorite organizing features?
I love this open recessed storage above, and the painted bathroom vanity that houses the messy items I prefer stocked in plastic storage containers. You wouldn’t believe what this vanity and that recessed space looked like before…
This bathroom space has so many pretty projects that make the perfect organizing tools. My tip to you: a little paint or stain can really bring some glam to your organizing projects! See how to stain a basket here.
From storage baskets to bowls, think outside the plastic box when storing items… A little gold paint can go a long way to bring a little glam to storage bowls!
Now, suffer no delusions, I don’t have the cleanest house (blegh, hate cleaning…plus I have 3 kids and a husband so you know, that doesn’t equal tidy), but I do love organizing, and having these spaces function like a charm for my family makes up for the days I get frustrated with my lack of a perfectly tidy house. Well what can I say, it’s the little things! 😉 I hope you enjoyed my little tour!
Thank you for so much for stopping by!
