Girlfriend! Getcha’ life…

A woman’s best friend…STORAGE

I know what you’re thinking! Or at least, I think I do. What kind of a title is this? Well, I am hoping that my quirkiness, good energy, and keen organizational skills can help a few of you ladies out; and point some husband/boyfriend’s in the right direction. Please like and share…Each One Teach One!

If all of your accessories are strewn all over the bedroom, follow this tutorial to get organized and clear up the clutter. 

This is a fashion accessory haul. Please come along and experience my stylized journey! Your husbands/boyfriends will thank you (and ME!) for you finally being ready and on time for date night 🙂

Note to guys: You can do this as well for your ties, cuff links, watches, etc.

The Purchase

Ikea Trones comes as a set of three ( I purchased two sets…I have ideas babbbbby!)

Command adhesive tabs 

Things you’ll need

Safety goggles

Hammer

Nails

Camera…if you want to document your journey > I recommend this 🙂

Patience…adding these small tabs (evenly) is very tedious

Plan your project

Tip1: If you have plenty of accessories, lay them out on a flat surface to pre-plan your bin; meaning: what items will be placed where. Some of my chokers were bulky and needed space so they would fit neatly. On the opposite side of the bin, you may want to space a few tabs further apart from one another.

Tip 2: The bins are removable. My suggestion is to prop up comfortably on a bed (with snacks…I’m a full figured girl trapped in a skinny girls body…for those of you who may not have a sense of humor, this means I am greedy.) and take your time painstakingly lining up the tabs side by side evenly;you will need to press firmly so that the tabs adhere to the bin.

Tip 3: I added my tights, stockings, leggings, etc. to the bottom bin.

Sharing is caring! Tell a sista’ friend…

BONUS: ENTRYWAY

Sooooooooooooo, I had four bins (Trones) left over from my accessories haul. I decided to add the remaining bins to my entry way. I used one for storing tools: Hammer, staple gun, masking tape, scissors, etc. I use another for files with documents. Two remains empty, however, I plan on putting zip lock boxes (yes, yes, I organize my freezer as well), garbage bag boxes, practically anything that will fit …out of sight, out of mind!

It’s important to note that there is a lip at the top which acts as a shelf, so I have decorated the top with small vases containing glass gems in a few and two with air plants. The masks above no longer scares my 12-year-old during midnight bathroom trips (Don’t ask 🙂
