Organizing a Shared Kids’ Room Closet ~ EasyClosets Makeover ~ the Reveal

Organized Kids' Closet

If you’re a regular reader of Organizing Homelife, you may know that I’ve been working with the amazing EasyClosets company to transform the closet in my girls’ room from disorganized and outdated to organized and beautiful. Today I’m going to show you the transformation! This is where we left off yesterday.  We took out the old shelves and baseboard and painted the closet to match the room.  Then we put the EasyClosets organizing solution together and were ready to start organizing! My two eldest daughters have dressers in the room, but since we have three girls sharing the same room, […]

Organizing a Shared Closet (and some big NEWS)

EasyClosets Girl's Room

The other day on Facebook I asked if you liked organized closets.  Obviously it was a rhetorical question because EVERYONE likes and wants organized closets, am I right? Although organized closets are the stuff of my dreams, that was not reality in my girls’ room.  We have a three bedroom house and four kids: 3 girls and a boy.  That means all three of our girls share one bedroom. I must say that although their room is a good size and their reach-in closet is fairly large, it has been a challenge getting and keeping it organized.  With three girls […]

Chalk Marker Review

Bistro Chalk Marker

One question I get asked frequently is what brand of chalk markers I use and where to buy them, so I thought I would do a little review of the brands I’ve used.  This is in no way all-encompassing because there are many brands of chalk markers. I’ll review four brands in this post. The first brand, Craft Smart, was the first chalk marker I bought.  I believe I found it at Michael’s Craft Store over a year ago.  While it is not my favorite marker for writing smoothly, it was the one that erased cleanly without the need for […]

How to Erase Chalk Markers Easily

How to Erase Chalk Markers Easily

Have you joined the chalkboard craze?  It seems like everywhere you look you see chalkboard labels, framed chalkboards, even entire walls painted with chalkboard paint. When I first started seeing the labels a few years ago, I could hardly believe people would want to label anything with chalk.  Without revealing too much about my age, I remember loving when it was my turn to clap erasers for my teachers.  Do you remember the clouds of dust?  I do!  I certainly didn’t want all that chalk dust in my house. But happily, chalk markers were invented!  Labeling bins and baskets with […]
