Favorite organized space: An organized home is fabulous, but since the whole thing is never organized at the same time, I bask in smaller organized spaces — like Designer Trapped‘s newly organized and super functional coat closet!

Favorite easy tip: The Red Painted Cottage added a planked top to a dresser, and she’s sharing her secret to an ultra smooth looks-professional finish: a brown paper lunch bag!

Favorite window treatment: This DIY curtain rod by Maison de Pax will be so easy to customize for your windows. Rachel used a Restoration Hardware style finish, but you could do any style you like!

Favorite colorful makeover: This green dresser by Thirty Eight Street is so lovely! I don’t use green a lot in my decor but I always like it so I think that should change 😉

Favorite light fixture update: Honey N Hydrangea updated a 70’s style light fixture — by making it into a terrarium!
