Bathroom Vanity Organization Ideas


Hey everyone! In today's post I'm sharing with you some of my favorite organization for the Bathroom Vanity. I know this area can sometimes be hard to deal with and products end up all over the place. I'm going to share two specific pieces that have really been game changers for me in this area.

First is the turn table, spinning carousel, lazy susan, whatever you would like to call it. GET ONE! This has been great at containing all of my hair products. Some I use everyday and others just once in a while depending on what I'm doing to my hair. I used to have these products in a plastic bin and that just wasn't working any longer. This way I can see everything I have and it's easy to spin it around to get to each product.

I use these all over my house - the pantry for spices and oils, my makeup vanity area for foundations, you name it. It just made sense to try it with hair products.


Next would be this two tiered sliding shelf. They come in a few different sizes but this works great for housing smaller bottles. As you can see here, I use the bottom half for my self tanners and lotions. The top half is for my most-reached for products and those items I may need once in a while but don't want to lose track of.


Here is an overview of my side of the vanity. My Husband and I have separate sides. This helps me to be able to spread out all of my products. Luckily, this space is nice and wide. If I were dealing with a more narrow space, I'd utilize more vertical space and use a two-tiered turn table along with more of the pull out shelves.

I go through everything in a little more detail in my video. The turn table and wire pull out shelf came from Bed Bath Beyond. Target also carries the turn tables but I don't find them to spin as easily. BBB also has more sizes.

Spring Dining Table


Hi everyone! I'm bringing you a little spring today. Not sure about where you live, but I could use all I can get. Not to talk weather too much, but it's not been a typical spring here in the South. So I decided to change that with some pretty new decor for my dining table. I love simple and easy decor. Take something as simple as a mason jar and jazz it up with spring flowers and it totally brightens up a space.

I actually bought these Ball Mason Jars back in December. I knew they were the LE Heritage Collection celebrating 100 years of Ball and I didn't want to miss out. I found mine at Target when I bought the small jars for my Crockpot Apple Butter. I just saw them at Publix the other day. I'm sure you can also find them at Amazon because that's where I had to buy my new GREEN jars. Yep, I loved the blue so much that I bought the green, too. {I'm planning on using those in the summer with white or coral flowers}



As you can see, I didn't change out my decor from Christmas. I knew I would probably keep the mosaic vases, candlesticks and linen runner up all year-round. {yes, it's linen and pretty much stays wrinkled no matter how much steaming or ironing} You can see more of that decor in this post. I may still add some white plates or a colored charger on top of the brown, but I actually like the simplicity of just adding the jars with flowers. The blue really pops! I added the light pink peonies because they are my favorite flower in pretty much any color, but love them with the light blue jars.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope this inspired you to use everyday items such as Mason Jars to decorate with. :)
