I know today is supposed to be day seventeen of the fabulous Blogtember challenge, and you can see everyone's posts, as well as our host, Bailey Jean's vlog too of course, here, but I don't vlog dear ones. I have no idea how and even if I could figure it out, well, I'm no where near confident enough I'm afraid.
However, the point of Blogtember is that we should try to post every day for the month of September, so even if I can't join in with the vlogging challenge, I wanted to post today so I've decided to share a mini homemaking project that's made me smile today :)
You might remember that I recently
Ikea have now replaced Bygel with a similar range of products called Sunnersta. The Sunnersta range again includes a rail and containers. I was undecided at first, I don't cope well with change honeys (I need to work on that someday...) but on our last visit we bought two of these new rails and some containers just to compare them. We've a long ways to go before our home can be described as organized so we knew they'd be used somewhere :)
I posted recently showing our entryway/mudroom make-over and as part of that project Hubby had used one of the Sunnersta rails under the cupboard which houses our electric meter...
Having decided that I liked the Sunnersta rail in our little entryway/mudroom I had an idea :) "What if...." I asked Hubby, "we replace the Bygel rail in the bathroom with the new Sunnersta rail?" My darling Hubby didn't even ask why he just did exactly what he always does when I ask him to do something, he just smiled and said "OK honey" bless him :)
Why change one perfectly good rail, and it's containers, with a different rail and containers I hear you ask dear ones, well, The Bygel rail is a silvery grey colour, as you can see.....
Whereas the Sunnersta rail is white and blends in rather better with the mini shelf it sits under in our bathroom...
As you can see too, the square shape of the Sunnersta's containers also seems to fit in a little better somehow than the Bygel's rounder containers.
I really am ridiculously happy with this tiny project honeys (thank you sweetheart for changing the rails around for me x)
So, what did I do with the now spare Bygel rail then? Again I asked Hubby (seriously, thank you sweetheart, I don't deserve you x) if he'd add the rail to the inside of the door to my little closet upstairs and of course he did :)
The top rail (also a Bygel rail) was originally here, it's the second, lower rail which Hubby has added today. As you can see I've used this to store my scarves (which I originally had on the upper rail.) This is so great because it's allowed me to space them out a little and give them more room.
The rest of the upper rail has a Bygel container (home to two pairs of gloves which have matching scarves) and an "s" hook which has two of my favourite necklaces.
Other jewellery is stored in a jewellery box on the shelf which sits just behind the hanging rail in the closet...
This tiny closet is still working so well and it's a joy to get dressed in the morning honeys. So many tiny organizing systems in this tiny space make using this closet a dream, I adore it. If you'd like to see how I organized this closet you can see the post here honeys.
There is also a post showing how I organized my own little "boutique" for my handbags on the closet door itself :) My "going out" shoes are also all in this tiny closet too on shelves above the hanging rail. It's, as I said honeys, a joy to get dressed in the morning :)
So, that's my little organizing project for today honeys. Till tomorrow, when I'll be back with day eighteen of blogtember, stay warm (it's starting to get chilly at night) smile lots and hug even more, huggles always dear ones xx
