Organization = Better Decor

I decided to tackle organizing the built-in bookcase today.

And it makes the area look a TON better. Who knew...just organizing can make your house look so much cuter?

A few organization gems I realized today:

1. I really didn't need all the junk that was on my bookshelves. I redistributed some things and put some things in a Goodwill pile.

2. Less really is more. Some things just needed to come off to make it all look better.

3. Personal momentos really add a cute touch to a bookshelf. Like our Dublin, TX Dr. Pepper glass bottles. LOVE those.

4. If you haven't used it in over a year, toss it. I was talking about magazines. I can never give up books. I become attached.

Nasty, old bookcase:


New and improved:


Oh yeah, a little close up on those blocks:





Cute, eh? Oh how I wish I had a vinyl cutter!
