hey friends, welcome back to my channel and welcome to my messy spare bedroom closet. This is an area in my home that has just become a dumping ground. I literally put things in here all the time when I just don’t know where to put it or it doesn’t have a home or if I’m being honest, I’m, just too lazy To carry it down to our storage room such a day, I’m.Finally, tackling it, and I’m just starting in here by removing everything that’s. The first thing you want to do when you’re reorganizing, a space, get everything out and then go through everything one by one, so the spare bedroom works as our guest room.So I really want it to be very minimal, but I still wanted to be really functional for a few of the items that I need to store on the main level. So what I’m doing here, I found it these cubes on Amazon.I’ll, definitely link them in my Amazon store and what I’m gonna do is. I am going to categorize them by bin, so this first bin is gonna, be all of my Cricut supplies. I use my Cricut all the time for crafts and crafting so that’s.Gon na be the first thing I do as well as just put my Cricut machine in here. So whenever I want to do a little project, I can just jump right to it, but before I organize the other bins, I need to empty out these drawers.
Oh my gosh, you guys look at these things. This is just complete chaos so, similarly, to the closet, I’m, just gonna empty everything out and then go through everything. Most of the items in here are my filming equipment batteries battery packs, but then this has also been a place where I have just thrown random craft supplies.There’s written of papers. I even found a box of Valentine’s Day cards back from Valentine’s Day, just things when I wouldn’t know where to put something I just kind of throw it here on the dresser, so it feels so Good to empty it out and get everything organized in meat, but if you happen to be new around here today, I just wanted to say: welcome and I’m, so glad that you stopped by my name is Amy.I’m, a stay-at-home mom of three kiddos here in the Atlanta area, and here on my channel. I knew lots of motivational, organizing cleaning and decorating content and I would absolutely love to have you join about YouTube family.So if you like, what you see today make sure you get that little red subscribe button down below. So I love this house so much it’s, my dream home, but if I’m being honest, the one thing I would change is that I just have a ton of linen storage, so I used this dresser just to keep all Of our spare sheets and pillowcases and blankets, and it had gotten a little messy from pulling things out from when we want to be cozy in the living room watching a movie or something.So I just went through really quick and refold at everything and got it. Nice and neat so once I went through the closet in this dresser, those are the two main areas that I needed to tackle. I had three piles I had trash.
I had things that needed to go to storage and had things that I needed to donate. So i was really diligent today because a lot of times when i do projects like this, i’ll kind of just let the clutter shuffle on to the next room, and then it never really gets put away.And so today I made those three piles. You’ll, see me going back and forth here and I put everything where it needed to go just so that I didn’t make a huge mess in another room. I hate when I do that I’ll, tackle one room, get it totally clean and then another room is messy because of it is anybody else like that, or is that just me but yeah I got everything put away, want you to go so Then I could finally start the cleaning.So now I’m using my Young Living Thieves household, cleaner on all the furniture. Today, you can find this at Young Living comm or actually have a link down. In my description, if you’re ever interested in it, I love this product on wood and for dusting.I feel like it works really really well, and then I have it. This mirror that it used to be in my entryway table, but I actually moved it over here. I found it on Wayfarer about a year ago, I’m sure it’s.Still there I’ll, try to link it. If I can find it because I always get questions about it, but I love the way that it looks in this guest bedroom. I feel like it gives the dresser a little more character and it’s really really pretty, and now I’m, just tackling the floor of this closet.I was gonna move that tear trace and where else I have another plan for it, that’s, why it was sitting in the closet for now, but I’m gonna finish. Organizing these bins – and I just had a category of carpet cleaning attachment, because I do keep my carpet cleaner here in this closet and then the other bin just ended up being kind of random craft supplies.
But I feel like it’s. A lot more organized – and I love that you can’t see what’s in the bins. I feel like it makes the aesthetic of the closet look a lot better. and I’m, actually getting ready to tackle my master bedroom as well here in the next couple of weeks.So I ordered these velvet hangers. They’re pink. They’re super cute on Amazon and, of course they’ll, be in my Amazon store, but I’m, just gonna use five or six of them just to keep here in this closet, for whenever we have guests.So they feel like they have nice hangers to use, and again I just feel like the aesthetic of it looks a lot better. Another closet is neat and a minimal and organized for whenever we have guests and moving right along.I’m just gonna go ahead and wipe down the bed frame. This seems to get really dusty and get lots of questions about this bed frame as well, and this was found on Wayfarer and I got it for like $ 99. It was super inexpensive and I think it’s really pretty it’s, a really pretty kind of grey washed wood, and I actually painted this side table it’s from Ikea.It used to be kind of a reddish brown, but I painted it gray and the lamp I found in a clearance aisle at Hobby Lobby. I got it for $ 10. I was super proud of that, but I decided to move the table out and sweep behind it, because everything in here was really really dusty, so it definitely needed that.Then I’m gonna go ahead and move everything back, and most of this room is already pretty clean and one of my last videos, I D clean this room. I did the windows and I mopped the floors, but I did not get behind the furniture I don’t know what I was thinking is, so I am tackling that today there was so much dust behind this dresser.I don’t know if I’ve ever moved it or if I have it’s been a while and I don’t know if you noticed, but I did move this jute rug into the guest Bedroom and it just adds a nice layer of texture, I feel like it anchors the space really well and it was really inexpensive.
I believe I found it at Target about a year ago, and I really like it. I like the way that it looks. I may end up getting another one someday, but for now I think it works really well, and this is a little bit later in the evening I was just finishing up of the sweeping just making sure I got all of the dust and I was actually running The duvet and all of the sheets and bedding in the wash that everything was clean and smelt fresh before I went ahead and decorated everything, but this is how the room looks clean and bare.So let’s, go ahead and get decorating [ Music, ], [, Music ]. So the first thing I’m gonna do is make the bed. I want to see how it all looks before I decorate the rest of the space. Now these white sheets are from Target.I love the threshold brand of sheets, I feel like they’re, really high quality for a pretty good price. I think a queen set is maybe $ 40 or so I’ve loved these sheets. I’ve had them for years, and I always just run them in the wash with bleach and they stay really clean.One of my favorite ways to decorate above a bed is to hang a wreath, and I love this gorgeous eucalyptus in peony wreaths from kirklands. It’s huge and I feel, like the Greens just flow really naturally, and it looks very natural and organic, but still really elegant and pretty I get questions about this bedding all the time I change it out throughout the year, but in the summer Months, I love it because it’s, so white and pretty, but this is a linen duvet, also from Target and it’s.Super high quality I can’t. Tell you how many times I’ve. Had guests sleep in this bed and say it was the most comfortable guest bed. They’ve ever slept in. I love it. I’ll even have sleepovers down here, occasionally with the kids, just because it is so so comfortable and I’m just seeing a layer on some pillows.
These knit pillows add a lot of texture and they actually worked year-round. I think they’re, so pretty. I believe I found them at Target and then these little checkered pillows are from home goods and I think they’re so cute with the little phrase on the ends.I love these. They’re super, pretty always check home goods. If you have one near you, they have the best pillows and then that home, sweet home pillow is from Pier one, and I love it because it’s. The first thing you see when you walk through our front door, and now I’m – just hanging this art from Hobby Lobby.It says it is well with my soul, and these are lyrics from one of my favorite hymns. I think it looks really pretty with the gray wood frames and I decided to move a chair in this corner just to kind of balance out the room.Of course I put my hunter boots because I always love to decorate with those, and this is actually a baby blanket, but you’ll, never know I won’t, you won’t tell, and then I put a basket Here, just to keep this door open when we don’t have guests and threw a pillow in it in some lavender, just to give it a little bit of life and that way the door stays open and now.Moving on to the dresser, I’m, keeping it really simple, because no one ever sees this dresser and I don’t want a ton of clutter if guests want to put things up here, so I just have a tray with some Lavender a candle, and then that is some sleep therapy lotion.It’s, just lavender scented, just kept it really simple and minimal, but still put together. And then I decided to hang these window panes on either side of the bed just took balance out. The space since we only had one side table and Caleb was being silly on camera, but I got him to help me hang and just to be a second pair of eyes.So we can make sure that everything looked balanced and that it was the right height, and I love the way that this turned out. It adds just a little something extra to the space and gives it a little more character, and just for something
