Easy and Adorable Wall Organization Racks

When my son has his photos done, we go to Esther Dorotik of Esther Dorotik Photography. She has been our photographer since I was pregnant with my little angel. There is a reason for this: the woman is AMAZING! I have not seen anyone else's artwork nearly as amazing as hers.

While discussing the pictures for little A's second birthday party, I saw the organization she had created for a few of her props. I was speechless! Not only was it elegant, but was so versatile that it could be used for anything, from purses to jewelry, children's artwork to orders placed for a business. I had to know how to recreate this organizational masterpiece.

Esther kindly agreed to explain how she created her prop rack in detail. I was ecstatic. I will eventually make this same set up for our closet, but until then I have detailed below the process that Esther used.

The difference is insane. She had stuffed all of her soft props into a rolling cart. Hats squished in the top, blankets and other accessories in the bottom two. To quote in Esther's own words, "it was unprofessional." I couldn't agree more. The after picture, though, speaks a thousand words. It looks much better and prettier!

She first purchased the curtain rod, measured the area and used a stud finder to drill the correct holes.

Once she has the proper placement of the brackets finished, she purchased curtain rod clip rings*, which are what is holding the hats up. She bought the right amount for the number of hats that she owned.


I'll be honest with you, I had NO idea what the rings were. I had never seen them or even heard of them before. But now, I am going to stock up on them! I will be using them for hanging my scarves, purses, and necklaces. I'll also use them for hanging delicates that need to be dried. 

Anyways, Esther slid a few packages of the rings onto each rod, put up the rod, and finally placed the rod onto the brackets. The clip rings are easy to use and don't leave a crease on the fabric. I absolutely love what she did with her studio!

What types of methods are you using to get yourself organized this year? What do you think about this ingenious prop organization method?

KALLAX Hack/Painting IKEA furniture

Oh boy! It's been over a year since the last time that I updated here. A lot has happened throughout that year. We recently moved into a townhome style community and my husband and I both started new jobs. We aren't the only ones changing it seems though. IKEA seems to be spitting out new products, and almost identicals of older products.

A few months ago, Big A, Little A and I visited our closest IKEA in search of the EXPEDIT. When we walked into the self-serve area, were we surprised to see not only the EXPEDIT but an almost identical unit. This new unit, the KALLAX, was slightly cheaper, but seemed to be the long lost twin of the EXPEDIT. Seeing as it was cheaper, we went ahead and purchased the KALLAX. Let me just say, it is definitely worth the buy!

You see, since moving, we got rid of our TV stand that was unfortunately too l…

IKEA Hack/LATT Table and Chairs Turned Storage Table

UPDATE: Make sure you put some sort of soft close adapter or hinge that would allow for the table top to not fall too fast or fall at all! Little A had a mishap with the table top falling down and hit underneath his eye. My poor little fellow. So, please learn from my mistake!

When Little A was about a year old, we purchased him an IKEA LATT table so that he would have his own table to read, draw and pretty much learn on. That thing has been through so many stages of his life. He has eaten on it, subsequently doused in water painted on, colored on and just plain had fun on. Recently, it started to become very, for lack of a better word, sad. The particle board top was bubbling up and would not get clean, the legs, sides and chairs had paint and color marks, and the whole table had seen better days.

Big A wanted to throw it out and buy a ne…

DIY IKEA Children's Chairs

A few weeks ago I posted about an IKEA hack of my son's table and chairs set. Of course I didn't get around to posting the chairs part of that table and chairs hack.... ANYWAYS, I didn't like the look the original chairs, new or used. I had seen many different hacks on the chairs themselves, mostly consisting of adding fabric to the seat or painting them. They all looked great, but I love upholstered and cushion seat chairs. I couldn't find any when I looked of what I was going for, so I decided to try it out.

The chairs themselves took longer that the table, only because it was trial and error based. I just wanted to be able to put the table and chairs anywhere in the house and have them fit in. I think I did a pretty good job at that, if I do say so myself. Just a forewarning, I apologize for the poor quality of pictures, I was trying to finish the chairs and it was night time before I was able to get to them. 

Not too shabby for someone who has no prior upholstery p…
