A "New" Bathroom in the Small Space

We had a bunch of company stay with us a few weeks ago. Annually we house pastors from around the country at our home to stay while they attend a local conference. This year we had 9 pastors stay with us. We even borrowed another RV/motorhome from my sister in law and housed some more of them so they'd be comfortable. We kept them all over the house and outside in the motorhomes. We want them to be comfortable. We had another visitor stay overnight with us right after they left, too. It was a blessing to have the motorhome as a guest house for each visitor. My goal has been to make it feel less like an RV and more like a small cottage. So, I showed you the little kitchen update I did last week and today I'm showing you another new small space update - the bathroom!

Tiling the Kitchen - an RV update

If you haven't figured it out by now, I love a good project. Our "new to us" RV has been a lot of fun for me and it's brought up a lot of ways for me to really get creative. Why in the world would I take a perfectly nice looking RV and make all these changes? Well, we are using our RV for more than just our vacations - it's become our guest house now, too. So, the first thing I worked on was the kitchen!

Here is what the kitchen looked like when we bought the RV just a couple of months ago. It's perfectly nice and simple. There isn't anything wrong with it - I just don't care for the splotchy "sponge paint" wallpaper and border wallpaper look. And, here is what it looks like now.

Disguising a Big, Ugly Object in Our Yard - the RV Journey

While I'm thrilled we bought a "new to us" RV motorhome a couple of months ago, it's easy to get tired of looking at this ginormous beast that's sitting in our backyard and realize that it's just ugly! I'm planning lots of DIY on the INSIDE of the motorhome, but first I wanted to do a bit of camouflaging of the beast on the outside. What do I mean?

Organized Creative Corner for Just $15!!

This post is by my assistant, Tiffany. Enjoy!

Organize a Creative Corner for your creative kids ::

When I want something beautiful to hang on my walls, need someone to take family photos or want help organizing a lovely party I am so thankful to live in a house full of "creatives."   Often times, however, this creativity comes with a bit of a mess.The random art supplies that my family collects and uses on a regular basis can quickly take over the house if I am not diligent to corral all of it.  In this post I will show you how I was recently able to make a tiny artist studio space in our home.

My Home Office Organizing

If spending up to 6+ hours a day in a home office doesn't sound fun, I can say that having it look pretty and being organized makes a HUGE difference in that time I spend. Granted, I DO spend a lot of time doing projects around my house - which is mostly what I blog about - so I'm not sitting all day there. But, for the many, many hours I AM  - it's so nice to look at a beautiful view!

Fashion Advice from an Organizing Blogger

One of my favorite hobbies, other than organizing is decorating, is fashion. Well, honestly, I haven't actually READ a fashion magazine in years {I can't stand all the yuck in there} but I've turned to my practical and modest "searches" on Pinterest time and time again to find cute and modest and fashionable outfits for this {almost} 44 year old girl! So, I'm sharing my "Fashion 101" through an organizer's eyes! I'll show you my favorite brands and where I get them for the best prices, too, and how I can keep my closet in shape, too! {This is NOT a sponsored post, just sharing my love of shopping and clothing}.
