There are spaces in every home where the idea of adding décor just seems odd. For me, one of those places is the empty space above the loo...i.e., the toilet.
This area of my bath, as you saw in my bathroom renovation post, is completely bare. For several years now, I've wanted to place something there. But I wanted that something to serve a function and be beautiful as well.
I'm always amazed at the level of determination that home ownership can produce.
Recently I decided to make a few soft upgrades to my home’s only bathroom. This conjured up memories of what this room looked like before my husband and I mercilessly took sledgehammers to it not too long ago.
Our home measures a little over 900 square feet. It was constructed in the late 1940’s as part of a planned community (affectionately known as "GI Town") for soldiers returning from World War II, and their families. Homes here were constructed in “assembly-line’ fashion, into duplex homes and apartments ranging from 750-1100 square feet. Although I have yet to figure out the name of the style of our home, it most closely resembles a small Georgian - only it's a townhome.
Welcome back to the WHO Challenge, where my aim is to organize my whole house in 14 weeks or less.
As I mentioned earlier in the week, the organization that happens (or doesn't happen) in the spaces behind closed doors, directly affects the function of the rest of the home.
Since I started this challenge people have been hounding me about covering today's space. Many tell me this area of their bathroom is a total disaster. Today we're decluttering and reorganizing the linen closet.
Welcome to week 6 of the 2017 Whole House Organization (WHO) Challenge, where my aim is organize every room of my home in 14 weeks or less.
We put so much effort into choosing just the right artwork, furniture, and accent pieces for our homes. This makes it easy to forget the importance of organizing the unseen areas. In fact, the organization that happens (or that doesn't happen) in the spaces behind closed doors directly affects the function of rest of the home. So we're taking today's organization challenge to the bathroom- to organize it of course.
