"Get It Done Already" Party!

We hope you've been inspired by our Get It Done Already! series.  We've both enjoyed crossing a few more things off of crafting to-do lists.  In case you've forgotten...

Nancy used autumn leaves to create some festive throw pillows, place mats, and a garland.

Michelle repurposed a cabinet door to make some sweet nursery wall art and also created this fabulous wall organizer.

And now it's YOUR turn to show off your own "Get It Done Already!" projects!

Originally, we wanted to do a linky party to share your projects, but we've had some technical difficulties setting it up.  So if you want to show off your "Get It Done Already" accomplishments, leave a link to your blog post in the comments or shoot us an email (with pictures, please!) at  All submitted projects (except for spam, of course) will be featured in a blog post after Thanksgiving.

We can't wait to see what you've been up to!

Wall Organizer {Get it Done Already!}

I apologize for the tardiness of this post. Between being out of town & Halloween this week has just flown by! I wanted to share with you a project that I worked on.

How many of you have counters like this? Yeah that's totally mine. Papers, mail, boxes...."organized piles" I like to call it. I know where everything is it just so happens to share one space with everything else. Mr S was sick of the clutter and I was too. Something had to be done & that is where my wall organizer idea was born. I really liked the ones at Pottery Barn, but it was just too spendy. So I put on my repurposing hat and used things around the house.

I started out with a curtain rod & collected my organizing items. There were quite a few ideas I saw on pinterest of wall organizers. I settled on my magnet board, calendar frame & mail bins {I'll tell you what I used in a minute}

I used screw eyes & shower curtain loops to attach my organizing items to the rod

For my mail bins I spray painted some old bread pans that I had. They were rusty & couldn't be used for bread making anymore. I nice shiny black spray paint job made them shiny & new. I wanted them "stacked" on top of each other. Drilling two holes on the handles of the pans I ran I had Mr. S string galvanized wire through, leaving loops at the top.

Then I pulled out the Silhouette & cut some numbers for the bins. You can easily use the number stickers/vinyl that is at your scrapbook store.

Strung my organizers onto the rod and there you go! My very own, custom, wall organizer.
I would caution you on the weight you put on the curtain rod, it can only hold so much.

So glad that it's done already!!
We hope that you have enjoyed our Get It Done series & hope that it has inspired you to get it done already.
Got some things done?
 Next week {November 11th} Nan will kick off our Get It Done Already Linky Party Get those pictures & posts ready to show off  YOUR Get It Done Already crafts!
