Pretty bathroom organizing

Happy Snowday! We are snowed in here in central Indiana with a slim chance of getting out tomorrow either. Tomorrow will be day 3 of no school! Ahhh!!! What's a snowed in momma to do? Clean and organize her home of course.
Today I bring you a quick and simple idea for your bathroom products like makeup and moisturizer and such. 
I've had the tiered plate try in my kitchen for years and all it seemed to be doing was taking up counter space. I found pretty white plates at the Dollar Tree. I'm sure you've seen the brush in glass marbels idea before, look I did it. Good ideas are meant to be copied!!! Found the glass and pretty blue glass marbels at  Dollar Tree too.
So there you have it $5 dollars at Dollar Tree and my little corner in the bathroom looks pretty and everything is within reach. If you don't already have a tiered tray I have seen them fairly inexpensive at Hobby Lobby and The Christmas Tree Store.

Lace earring organizer

Happy New Year friends!!! Are you just going nuts trying to get your home cleaned and organized? I am!!! All of January's post I will be sharing how I am getting our house in shape for 2014!
Do you remember my Knobby Jewelry Organizer? Today I'm sharing how I store my earrings. 
I found this frame on a garage sale page for a whopping $3!!! Score! It is just hard plastic but I loved the shape and the little roses on it seemed perfectly romantic.
The picture just isn't my style so it's bu-bye in the trash. I saved the glass though, who knows when I'll think of something to do with it. 
Spray paint
Rub 'n buff
Hot glue

I wiped down the frame to have a clean surface to spray. I spray painted it with Krylon Island Splash. I thought it looked similar in color to the knobby jewelry organizer.

Then to highlight the roses I used some Silver leaf Rub 'n Buff.

To add the lace I just applied a small line of hot glue then using the eraser end of a pencil tapped the lace into the glue. The pencil really will save you from having burnt fingers-trust me (Youch!!) 
Then add your beautiful earrings and hang on your wall. 

I love it!!!
