Hello & A Quick DIY

Hello All!  It has been WAY too long.  I am alive!  My Summer break from blogging turned into a sabbatical!  Life got the best of me... in a good way.  I turned 30 in October and have been putting priorities in place.  Blogging was one item that didn't seem to fit into my new daily routine.  I actually thought I wouldn't come back, but due to the sweetest emails from blog buddies I couldn't stay silent anymore.  I can't promise daily posts, not even weekly, but I promise to clean the cobwebs off my keyboard a bit  more often.
I couldn't not come back with a simple DIY I thought I would share. With the adoption moving right along, we have been looking at our house with baby goggles.  Seeing little projects that help with organization and clutter.  One area that needed help was the entry way.  We had this large empty wall going up our stairs.  I thought about just hanging art, but with the baby and living in rainy Oregon, a place to hang clutter ( diaper bags, jackets, scarves ect.) would be useful.




Sorry I don't have a picture of the wall without the beams already up, but just imagine it without.  So I simply purchased some wood beams from Home Depot. While I was there I picked up some Allen & Roth iron wall hooks for two bucks a piece. We trimmed the wood to the length of the wall then drilled them into the wall with anchors for durability.  Then I simply caulked around the beams to give it a custom look. After a little paint that matches our other moulding in the house and a touching up the wall paint it was time to add the hooks.  And viola!



The whole project cost under 50 bucks.  Can't beat that! Especially for adding esthetically pleasing organization to the house.

Glad to be back,
Heather
