Hello! How is your week going? I am enjoying my last few days of school, letting the kids just play and trying to get the room cleaned up and organized. I have lots planned for this summer at home!

As you can see, I have a new model this time! Rozy decided it was her turn! I decided to go with my favorite color this time-turquoise!!!  These outfits are great for those summer outings and parties you are going to. A turquoise, white, and blue striped 3/4 sleeve top is perfect with white jeans.  I added gold jewelry, a navy purse and turquoise sandals.

Next up, a turquoise print sheer top with a khaki skirt. I love how flowey this top is and it goes with so many different things. I added a salmon colored beaded necklace, salmon colored sandals and a floral wallet.

The last outfit is a turquoise, navy and green tank with silver trim. A denim skirt is a classic for any top you put with it! I added silver jewelry and the same navy purse as the first outfit. I also have white and silver sandals.

Old Drawer Recycled to a Purse Organizer

We live on an alley. Needless to say, we find a lot of junk! One day, Haley found these 2 drawers sitting out there, just calling to her that they needed a new home. So they came home with us! Now just to figure out what to do with them!

I was talking with Lauren one day and mentioned that I didn’t know a good way to store my purses. They always seemed to be getting lost in my closet. Voila! An idea was born!

We actually have 2 of these, but I will start out with just one today. I have a couple of ideas for the other one, but I have to pick which one! As you can see, they are pretty big drawers. They were 18 inches across, 23 inches tall and 9 inches deep.

Steve took apart the old cupboards in the laundry room to make space for the lockers, so we had a bunch of wood left from that. Since this would be going in the closet and wouldn’t be a show piece, we just used particle board for the shelves and dividers.

Steve even made the braces for the shelves to sit on. This was a completely free project!!

I measured out some of my purses and then comparing that to the size of the drawer, I came up with the measurements for the cubbies. I wanted 3 large spaces on the bottom for large totes and bags, 4 small spaces for wallets and small handbags, and 2 on top for the medium size purses (sounds like the 3 bears!-sorry! Preschool teacher here!)

Yep! I pulled all this out of my closet and this was just one corner! I found purses in every nook and cranny. I was putting them wherever I could find space. I pulled boots out too because the new organizer would be occupying that corner.

After a couple of coats of white paint, it was ready to bring in the house and organize!! I love how well it fit everything!

I always love finding ways to get more organized and a way to recycle old stuff!
