Outdoor Toy Storage {Thoughtful Thursday}

We've tried lots of different things to hold the kids toys. Laundry baskets. Shelf made from old drawers. And the most recent attempt, an old bakers rack that was left in our shed by the former owner we were using for tools.

Baker's Rack to Outdoor Toy Storage BEFORE and AFTER

After wiping it down I used my favorite kind of paint for furniture {or just about anything}: Spray Paint. After getting the entire thing coated with the blue, I used some cardboard and tape to block off the wooden top and sprayed it with black chalkboard paint then added simple white knobs I had in my pile of "leftover" parts from projects.

I pulled it up on the deck and added toys. We'll see how long this lasts and if it makes the kids wanna put their things away any more than the other tries.

If you've been around here long, you know I love organization, even if that's becoming harder to come by in my home during this season}. I also love Christmas AND a good plan {or general idea of where we're going}. So of course, I would be all about Advent, countdowns, and bucket lists.

Decorate for ChristmasToday, I've tried to combine my love of these in a general list of great ideas our family, among having a baby, is going to try to remember to enjoy this season. If you want to read about it and or print the list, check it out on the Homemaker's Challenge today! 😀

Decorating for FALL!

Maybe Fall is here to stay...inside my house it is anyways.

We LOVE Fall

My family loves the cooler weather after a scorching Arkansas summer.

We love cook outs. We love football {more the social aspect ;) }. We love the coming holidays. We love dressing up and being silly for Halloween. We {mainly I} love getting to change up my house to make it feel all warm and cozy with different decorations.
