Finds For The House

 

With Amazon Prime day here I wanted to share some of my favorite finds for the house….like this 3 Pack Macrame Plant Hanger with three different sized from small to large. I currently have my boston fern in the largest one and I’m still deciding on what plant to put in the smaller ones.

I bought this set of 4 JUMMICO Metal Dining Chairs that are stackable back in March and we really love them. They are really sturdy, awesome quality and the price is affordable. I prefer metal chairs when you have kids because I swear the older kids broke like 5 chairs and I decided I did not want wood ones anymore.

I started about a month ago using pillowcases to help my hair and found these Bedsure Satin Pillowcase for Hair and Skin, they come in a 2 pack and I bought the king size ones. I wish I had bought them sooner. They also seem to help me feel cool on hot summer nights.

This Jerrybox Vanity Organizer, 360° Rotating Adjustable Makeup Storager has been the best thing I bought for storing my skincare, make up and brushes. I love being able to spin it around and you can adjust the shelves to fit different size products. I keep all my brushes on and store some jewelry and sample size products in the top.

I am always taking the kids to the beach or the park and I like having containers to put there lunch or snacks in. These Bento Lunch Box’s are the ones we are currently using and they come as a 2 pack ( pink and green ) with little forks also.

I just recently ordered the Ninja Nutri Ninja Personal Blender. I make protein smoothies almost every day and my blender pitcher broke and a replacement was about the same cost of buying this. I actually prefer this blender for smoothies over the regular blender I had. I read it is great for jucinging but have not tried it yet.

Lastly I wanted to share this Bissell 3624 SpotClean Professional Portable Carpet Cleaner because it has been a lifesaver and amazing on large rugs or even small rugs and if you have messy little ones and pets. I use this on our living room sectional and it cleans it so well. Definitely the best cleaning product I purchased.

Sitting Room & IKEA's STOCKSUND Sofa Review

I wanted to share a little review on IKEA’s STOCKSUND sofa today.

I do not think they have this dark gray fabric cover anymore but a lighter version and some other designs.

We bought this sofa before Weston was born. In February 2018. We have had it for over a year now and we really like it. It is deep and comfortable and I like how you can remove the covers.

We had a smaller sofa here before and we are always in here so we went for a larger sofa and this one fit well in this space.

I did finally take the wall art off. I’m not sure if I will put it back up or do something different.

Although I do not wash the covers often. it is a lot of work. I prefer to keep a blanket on top and vacuum the cushions and under them about once or twice a month. Sometime I just wash the bottom cushion covers. They take a long time to dry and they need to air dry.

My husband put the sofa together and it did not take him long at all.

The rug was purchased from Target online. I do regret buying it. It does not look like this anymore and you can not see the design at all and it looks matted down. The IKEA rugs I have held up better. Eventually I will be buying something better. You can find the rug here.

Here it is all put together for the first time. Harper was excited to test it out.

We ended up taking the tall shelf out and replacing it with a smaller, shorter one. The TV is now on the wall also.

Here is real life after having a baby. It is much cleaner now minus the toys and books everywhere and we did get a ceiling fan for this space. You can see that post here.

We are very happy with this sofa. If you are on a tight budget and need a good sized comfortable sofa this is a great one. It is also nice to take naps on.

I will share another post on some updates on this space and about our new floors soon. I still need to finish the gallery wall by the TV and the area above the sofa.

Thank you for reading!

Sewing and Craft Armoire

I recently shared my new workspace and you can read that here. Today i am sharing about the computer armoire that I painted and now holds my sewing machine, tools, silhouette machine and accessories.

You also can see to the right Harper’s craft area…I will share more on hers in another post.

We got this for free years ago and we used it for the family computer. It was nice to hide it when it wasn’t in use. When we turned this area into my workspace I wanted to keep it here and use it to store my sewing and other things. We ended up attached the desk top to it.

Before we made this into a workspace I painted it in simply white by Benjamin Moore. It was black with a green color inside.

My hubby added the hardware that I found on clearance at IKEA since it did not have any and was difficult to open.

Its really hard to get a good photo of the inside…not much light and anytime I open the doors Weston comes running to play with them.

I used a oops paint for the inside. Its a off white color that I found for $5 at Home Depot.

I did not paint the inside of the doors or the keyboard shelf because I plan to add organizers and cork board down the road.

We used the IKEA SUNNERSTA rail. The hooks and containers are great for organizing. It was a little difficult hanging.

I had the accordion peg rack and thought it would be great for storing my fabric scissors that I have to hid from my hubby.

The ribbon organizer I already had but I found this one that is basically the same Wooden Ribbon Ladder.

The little bins on bottom shelf hold power cords and other items those are from IKEA..SOCKERBIT Box.

Here is the only before photo that I could find on my phone from years ago…with the dog in the way. I could not find a before of the inside.

I still have so much more craft items I need to put away and organize and I need get rid of some that I don’t use.

Thank you for reading!
