My dad would be proud!

I think that for most people, when you know that company is coming to stay, you go the extra mile to make sure that your place is clean and comfortable for them. Not only does this include scrubbing every square inch of the living area but also making some improvements that have been on the To Do list for quite some time.

When I finally got the closet filled back up, I had no where to put my purses and bags. I had them on the floor, but they were still in the way. I decided that the way to go was to get a purse organizer and to hang it on the open wall in the closet. I found instead a couple of coat racks for a lot less. I hung them up all by myself and they are level and everything!


I then headed to the full bathroom. My dad had re-done the bathroom a few years ago and left the toilet paper and towel holder for me to hang. I just put them in the closet to wait until I have decided to paint the bathroom, but 4 years later, I still don't have a color picked out. So I hung the towel holder ...


... and the TP holder.


My dad had picked out the fixtures, but I am really happy with them. The TP holder swivels instead of being 2 end pieces with a plastic rod in the middle. It's very cool!!

The other thing that I did was to install 2 blinds in the spare bedroom. They are the accordion type blinds so I am hoping that they give a little better defense against the heat in the summer and the cold in the winter like the other ones in the condo have.



They definitely lighten the room up compared to the dark dusty rose models that were in there!

So power tools have been used and served their purpose and are now put away for another day. As proud as Dad was when I put in the 2 additional shelves in the hall closet, I know that he will be proud of these accomplishments!

Way to go! You are getting so much done. I had a bit of energy yesterday and did a clean sweep of the bedroom and bathroom, but that's as far as I got.
