**GIVEAWAY is now CLOSED.**
One of my goals for January was to get organized! Eek! I figured I better hurry up and seize the day, so I headed to Lowes to pick up a few things. I don’t usually think of Lowes as a place to shop for decorative storage baskets, but they definitely have some lovely options that put the “fun” back into functional!
I especially liked the look of these galvanized locker baskets and thought they’d look uber cute in my boys’ bedroom. Obviously everyone else at my Lowes liked them too because they were almost sold out.
And although I am so not a fan of the wire rack closet organizers, I was pleased to see that Lowes offers some fun slide-out basket storage and custom add-ons. If you’re stuck with wire racks, this would definitely be the way to go.
Ooooo, the wood closet organizers are so pretty. I wish I would have splurged on some when we remodeled our home!
Okay, okay, enough browsing! Time to get focused and get what I need to get organized!
Well, I’m pleased to say that I made it out of there with some very practical purchases including a black storage unit, a pegboard organizer kit and accessories, and a shoe organizer. Let me show you some before’s and after’s!
If you’re a home blogger, you might have an armoire full of accessories that looks something like this. This would definitely be a “before”.
I could barely open the cabinet without something falling on me and the drawers were filled to the gills. This “system” of mine was clearly not working. I set up an inexpensive Lowes storage shelf in the basement and loaded it full with accessories. Sigh. Much better! Now I can “shop the house” without fear of being attacked by a falling pillar candle.
Next, I tackled two of my pegboards. I have a craft closet and a craft room that needed some serious organization help! Here is the before of my sad, sad craft closet:
And after hanging all of my pegboard accessories, here is the happier after! Do you know how thrilled I am to be able to locate a hammer, screwdriver, and measuring tape at a moment’s notice? Heaven I tell you!
Then, I headed up to my craft room to put some final touches on the pegboard. It was in pretty good shape but needed a few more pegboard accessories. Here is the beautiful after!
The pegboard baskets are wonderful to hold my paint supplies, textures, and mediums and the jar holders are brilliant for small item storage!
And finally, here is my embarrassing shoe storage before.
….and it continues in a big ‘ol mess over here…
I purchased a cube organizer for my shoes and although it was a bit of a challenge to assemble out of the box, it was so worth it! I am thrilled with the more organized after! Why didn’t I do this ages ago?
So how about you? Has the organization nesting bug bit you this month? Well, if not, maybe this will help! Lowes wants YOU to be able to put the fun back into functional too!
