Organize your home in 30 days

I recently lead a group of nearly 150 friends & family as we organized our home.  Each day in the month of June we tackled a different area of our home and shared our successes and challenges with each other. It was a great support system and kept me accountable!

The tasks were sometimes time consuming and took a lot of planning and effort but the end results were worth it!

If you want to organize your home too just follow these daily challenges.

Good luck!

Statement chairs!

I’ve always been obsessed with chairs!

I remember buying my first accent chair for our home long before Tyler & I were married … or had a home.  It “lived” at my parents house until we purchased our first house nearly a year later.  We still have that Kravet chair and I love it.  Although reupholstering it is on my To Do list.

(Don’t you love the beautiful baby gear that accessorized our living room a few years ago?)

Recently I came across a Home D├ęcor Resource Guide on One Kings Lane.  They have great articles and information on design and I love browsing their designer chairs!

I found this upholstered accent chair on their website. Isn’t it great?!

It reminds me of the chair I refinished and had reupholstered for the girls’ bedroom!

Another of my favorite chairs is this wood arm chair I refinished last year.

Painting it coral was a risk (and outside my comfort zone!) but I love the pop of color it adds to our home office.

I have always loved French chairs.  Who doesn’t?  I found a set of four vintage painted wood French chairs with the original mohair on Craigslist for $75!  This was probably 6 years ago and I still think it was my best Craigslist find!  These chairs “travel” around our house because you can use them anywhere.  They make a great desk chair, accent chair or dining chair.
