We recently bought these really nice wooden bed lifts to make more room under the bed. They are so much nicer than those hideous plastic white ones they sell at Bed Bath and Beyond. I found a set in dark cherry wood for only $14.95 at TJ Maxx in Cobb. I think I can get two of these soft sided bins under there and that is a lot of clothes. The closet has been majorly ignored by Joe as he as used it as a dumping ground for things he dosent even wear. This week his friend Melissa commented, “You shouldn’t have many clothes in the closet. You always wear the same thing.” Thank God someone else said it. He agreed and now I think that is a very good jumping off point for us to go through the mysterious blue bins on the top shelf and make generous donations to the local Goodwill.
As we venture to join our two lives and possessions I will chronicle it all in photo format here. I have found many sources of inspiration though….
Joe and I love maps. I own my own 1960 circa European map that belongs above a chalk board. But I found this on apartment therapy and I thought it was really cute..
I like the use of muted tones and exciting pieces that draw your eyes upward in these two rooms.
Wish us luck on joining our two styles!!!
