Friday organization


I'm lovin' my new apothecary style cabinet. Kinda reminds me of an old library card catalog. It's helping me get organized with all the little goodies I like to use in my work and have stocked up on with the recent ephemera swap. By the way, all the swap packages are in the mail and should be reaching your mailbox soon!

I recently saw the idea of writing with chalk on blackboard painted furniture here and here and thought I'd give it a try. I didn't even need to use the blackboard paint. The chalk goes on great and can be easily wiped off without leaving a trace. Viola!

Happy Friday!

Awesome idea for your apothecary cabinet. Did you see this one of Stacy Julien's?

I have a similar cabinet except it is only two drawers wide. I may have to try your idea.

I love your cabinet. What a great way to organize things - and attractive too.

I LOVE this! I've seen that idea before (maybe on Martha Stewart?) of using the chalkboard paint. Cool. Where did you find the cabinet? Glad you're back home from vacation. Hope to see you soon!

Kari,
I just received my package this minute. I ran right outside when I saw the mail person putting something in our box!
I love all my stuff and will post about it this weekend. Do you have a list of the other swappers? I would love to see if they post about them too.
XO,
Melba
