"I love Paris..in the Springtime."

It's Thursday!! Almost the weekend! Yahoo! Today, I wanted to share a few tutorials that I discovered from HGTV and a blogger, Isabella & Max Rooms.

Since Spring is among us, many of us are beginning to declutter, clean and reorganize our homes. Recently, I just started reorganizing my pantry. It was a MESS! Things in there had expirations from 2008. Eek! It was because I could not find anything. I followed this blurb from HGTV. Maybe it can help you!

You can find it here. I followed most of this, but you can organize it the way you prefer. We have a rack on the back of our pantry door that houses all of our spices. The top shelf of the pantry holds our cereal and snacks, such as chips, popcorn, granola bars, etc. The second shelf holds pasta and rice. The third shelf has a lazy susan and holds all the bottles, as well as, condiments. The next shelf holds baking items, such as, flour, sugar, chocolate chips, and that sort. Finally for the bottom, which is the floor of our pantry is where our pets food, treats and large bottled items are stored. Everything is so easy to find...love it!!

Also, another cool tool is this spring cleaning guide found on organize.com. This is a spring cleaning check off list that you can print out...how nice!! Get yours here.

In addition to tidying up your space, I like the tutorial that Isabella & Max Rooms has for stenciling a focal wall. It's beautiful! I have been wanting to do this for a while. I have just been ivestigating the stencil I would like to use and where to use it! 

Isn't this gorgeous? Visit her blog for the tutorial. You can also find it on hgtv, here.

Hmm...I just thought of this song....

"I love Paris...in the springtime..."
