House Progress--Upstairs!

So....the thing no one told me about buying a house was HOW DARN LONG it would take to get settled!  I was waiting to share house photos until I had some "finished" rooms, but now that I realized that might keep y'all waiting for several years, I'm jumping the gun a bit:)

Everything is still very much "in progress," but at least I'm having fun in the meantime!

Upstairs we have a giant bedroom that we decided to make into a master bedroom/scraproom for now (the room assignments may change down the road;)).

Initially the room looked like this:


The far edge of the room has become my scrappy nook, like so:


It still needs a lot of cleaning up (and some lighting), but at least the Expedit is up and running:


In the corner, you can see my new beloved, an IKEA Raskog cart. Here's an up-close view of my beauty!


Ahhh.....this was a major pain to track down, but I love love love it.

The color on the wall is Benjamin Moore, color-matched to a Home Depot color I used on my old scraproom in the apartment. I loved it so much I had to bring it with me!

The other side of the room is our bedroom. To say this room needs a lot of work would be a gross understatement, so I won't torture you with photos:)

The Expedit shelves and some dressers serve as a divider, and it's been working really well (I was worried about feeling like I lived in my scraproom, but we're in the clear!)


Don't mind my line-up of wigs. They have a home, which they will get put in. Eventually.

I've been experimenting with some new forms of jewelry storage. A ceramic egg crate I found in Montreal has been a fun place to keep earrings:


And the Jenni Bowlin keyholder has been a fabulous necklace sorter!


In the pretty jewelry holder vein, I also have my eye on this lovely from World Market.

So that's some upstairs projects so far!  

What's YOUR favorite way to store jewelry?

  1. Ohhhh! I love that cart. It is now on my Christmas wish list, so so pretty. :) I'm sure you are loving having a place to scrap again.
    Our dresser has two long skinny drawers on the top that clothes don't really fit in, so most of my jewelry gets thrown in there.

    1. Not to worry Margie--they scared me too! When I was first married, I had to keep them in a closed cabinet so I wouldn't freak out. Now I consider them my peanut gallery:)

  4. I love seeing peeks into people's houses : ) Matt says that is also known as being NOSY. Ah well. I have an inexpensive jewelry armoire from Target that I really like.
