Bedding Sets that won't break the budget. Most under $100!
I love comforters and duvet covers. Love them. Let's just say I have at least 7 per bed. Excessive? Maybe. But I like to change my mind a lot :) I'm in the mist of changing mind...err decor...in my guest room. So I've been searching for some cute inexpensive comforters. Here's a round up of some of my faves! And I'm cheap...so these are all under $100 for a queen. Most of them (except one I believe) includes shams and maybe even a bed skirt and toss pillows. Two of them are under $200 but they are just waaaaay to gorgeous to pass up. In fact I own one of them already :)

DIY Laundry Room Organization

Pin It
My laundry room is super duper small. Like just a pass through from the garage into the house. I can't complain, at least I have a dedicated room for my laundry...just wish it was a tad bit bigger :) Since there is no room in there, the laundry piles (yes piles as in plural) in our bedroom are huge. There's no place to put the dirty dish towels or bath towels or gross clothes that we would rather not have mixed in with the other dirty clothes. So, they end up on the laundry room floor...completely in the way. We can't even open the door all the way eighty percent of the time. It drives my husband nuts. Plus, I have a no shoe policy in our house so the shoes always end up on the floor. And then since the laundry gets in the way on the floor, sometimes it ends up on the washer and dryer, and then I don't have a place to put my purse. So...yep. That ends up on the floor too. The square footage in there is super small, like 3'x5'...maybe. Not a lot or room for all that is going on in there. Bare with me on these pictures, there's bad lighting and no way to take a decent picture because of the size :) Here's the nice unused empty wall before:

Now imagine the floor with super crazy clutter full of shoes and dirty towels
Anyway, because of this, I desperately needed some off the floor organization. I've been looking for hanging laundry bags for awhile now and found two different kinds that would have worked perfect on Amazon. This one was my first choice, but then I decided that I wanted a wider opening just in case I want to throw some shoes in there.

 So I ended up getting these white ones for about $12. They are super nice, they have a zipper in the back so it's easy to just dump the laundry right into in the washer.

But, of course, I didn't just want to hang these and be done. I wanted it to be cute also. Plus, this room is super dark, so I decided to brighten it up a little bit with some paint. I chose Crisp Linen White from Glidden.

First was to mark where I wanted to hang the laundry bags. I decided to paint just below this. So I took my laser level, stuck it in the wall to mark where I wanted the paint line to go.Then I placed the painters tape right below the line.

Also taped all around the wall, then started painting.

I finished this off by securing a stained cedar plank to the wall, into the studs.

To hang the laundry bags,  I bought some cute knobs from Hobby Lobby and screwed them into the board.

It is soooo nice to be able to open these doors all the way now :) So nice. And not having to worry about tripping over stuff is a plus too lol.

And since I have no place for my ironing board, I hung it behind this door also on the knobs. It was there previously already, but as you can see in the above before picture, it was hanging on by one hook since the other fell off and it had been like for years. So, this is a little upgrade.
Laundry room organization
The other side of the room had also been completely neglected. It used to be super cute, but that didn't last long what with all the clutter n all . So, I added some more boxes in there to get the clutter a little bit under control.
Laundry room organization
Yes, these two sides do match colorwise but that will be something to do down the road :) Easy as switching some pictures out. Right now, I'm just happy that this laundry room is clean lol. It's a first in quite awhile...like as in 6 months...at least. Let's just say, I desperately need a mudroom and larger laundry room...then I'll be set :) But for now, I know the hubs appreciates the clean floor.

White Spring Mantel and Bookshelves

Pin It
First off, thank you all for your overwhelming response to my last post! I'm sooo glad I'm not the only doing this and I have actually received a ton of good tips that I'm definitely going to have to start using when I'm trying to clean my house in a rush :)  You all are amazing!

White Spring Mantel
I am sooo ready to get out gross weather and into beautiful sunny weather. It's been tricking me a lot lately, it looks so welcoming and beautiful outside and then I step out into 30 or 40 degrees. Boo :( Well, with Spring just a few days away I figure it's time to show you my Spring mantel...although, I admit, it has been up since like January. I really hate winter lol.
White Spring Mantel
I decided to go with an all white mantel...shocker. I know :) Well, I did add some brown and cream, so at least it has some contrast lol. I've been doing the same mantel for the past two or so years during spring and decided to change it up a bit. Sometimes you get in a style rut and just throw up what's easy and what's easy is usually something you already thought through and liked the previous years.
Here was last years mantel (you can tell I used a lot of the same concepts...not much thinking here lol)
coastal mantel decor

I'm so glad this new mantel came together easily. Just one stop to the store and it was done. I got all the ceramics from Michaels. I used to go there all the time, but haven't for forever. I forget what great deals they have on stuff, especially if you use their coupons :) I think the total cost for these 4 pieces was about $10. Right up my alley :)
White Spring Mantel
And this sunburst mirror was made years and years ago from some poster board.

I had to keep a little bit of 'coastal' in the mantel since it reminds me so much of Spring and Summer so I kept the nautical rope knot and lantern.
White Spring Mantel
I also gave my bookshelves a little lift. If you remember from my Christmas post, I decided to try something and line these with a ton of books. I liked the look, but not for me. So, down they all went, and a lighter variety of items went back up.
White Spring Mantel
I promise one of these days I'll decorate with color. But this is my style and I love it :) So, until I find something that I really like to replace it, this is how it goes! ...(I wish the hubs would finally understand this too lol)
