First, I decided to make a mess.
Things always have to get worse before they get better. Does it happen like that for you?
I threw out. I organized. Mr. Clean Magic Erase was a friend. I polished and vacuumed every inch of the room. If I could move it, it got moved and cleaned.
I had to find a spot for seven more jugs in a room that I already liked the way it was and one that already had jugs in it!
Here are the results.
Here's a new home for a jug.
I slipped one in behind this picture. Check out the fire extinguisher lamp my brother made and give me a long, long time ago.
Three more jugs by the door.
There's another jug by this chair. I made the pillow when I was in my early teens. It still looks great today!
Now I know this will be a shock...but I am the only gal in BLOGLAND that hasn't painted her furniture (and my decorating style is warm-not white). Yes, I know it's shocking. I started refinishing furniture when I was 13 and I really love wood. I would love to try some chalk paint. Gotta find something to paint.
It already had jugs on the top, but I hid one in the back. It's the same color, but you really can't see it.
This is a really cool duck decoy that belonged to my Dad. It is wooden and it folds out on a spring to reveal three different ducks. It still has the rope and weight attached.
I'm glad I got those jugs placed and the study clean and organized. I'll show you my reward later.
