Man chirps.

We're taking a break from girly pretty to do something a little different: a MAN POST.

Ok, it's not quite as dramatic as all that, but stay with me here. 

Our entry closet, a little nook for hanging coats and such, was quickly turning into a bit of a burial ground for stuff we didn't have another place for. Thus, it wasn't being put to good use, so Joseph decided to do something about it. Previously, all his tools were in random shelves in the guest room, so nothing was easily accessible (or easily put-back-able). But with a little creativity and a couple of trips to Lowe's, Joseph turned our closet o' shame into a man closet o' rawr.


It looked worse than this; I think this was part-way through the cleaning out.

And after! It's hard to get a good picture, but I think you can see that Joseph built and painted a middle shelf for his toolbox.

And on the side walls, peg boards (thanks, cousin Katie, for buying them for us off our registry!):

Ta-da! It's great- Joseph can just pop over to his closet, quickly find whatever tool he needs, and then just as quickly put it back up when he's done. I think it's a really smart use of the space since we don't have access to a garage, and Joseph loves it.
