Our New Coat & Purse Rack


Oh my goodness y'all, I just survived my first bout of food poisoning.   I don't know if I am more sad about being sick all day yesterday or that I can never again eat at my favorite breakfast taco restaurant again!!  Sorry if that was TMI... :)  Our front room makeover is ticking along nicely and if you want to see some before and afters you can look {here} and {here}.  Our front room has been pretty purposeless since we moved in, and I am hoping to change that!  I've realized that I need a drop zone and I don't want it to be the floor...


Now I have a blank slate after another successful Craigslist sale and there is only one ugly problem.   


Our house is wired for an alarm system that we don't use.  We haven't decided if we were going to update the system yet or just take it out all together.  So my solution was to hide it, kind of like how I clean the house if I find out someone is coming over... 


I found {THIS} shelf at Target and it was almost perfect.  So close yet so far...  I thought about making a DIY version but this only cost me $20 and no time, so I went for it.  I was thinking these shelves would be perfect for outgoing mail & decor, but I did't know how I was going to work around the alarm system.  Then I stumbled upon this at Marshall's.   I was so excited when I pulled on the sprigs and they came out easily!    



Now I don't know know if I will keep the book on the other side but it works for now.  I'd like to say this has worked perfectly but I spent about 45 minutes looking for my keys today... I'm looking at you Mack.  Why did I ever let my baby play with my keys?!?


If you follow me on Insta then you know I have a new project {that I am so excited about!!}.  I was supposed to get started on it yesterday, but that obviously didn't happen!  I'm hoping to get to it in the next couple days before Mack and I head to OKC for my race.  I am really hoping I make it through the race because my training has been SO bad... 

Thanks for stopping by!
