His & Hers

Spring is here and I'm in the ZONE to clean, organize, and get rid of things!!! I was reading in my "Real Simple" magazine that April and May are the best months to go thrifting because everyone cleans out their house and while I love thrifting I'm right there with everyone wanting to organize their homes, (honestly I will probably still browse here & there)

Now when it comes to space in my bedroom, closet, or bathroom I can honestly say I tend to be a little selfish and sometimes have a hard time sharing, I'm pretty sure I'm not the only woman that has a hard time with this.
So my lil project this week was about "defining & adding some space," as well as fun and inexpensive! Michaels has a "Dollar Hot Spot" and I found these letters with hooks on them for a buck a piece. If you haven't checked out the "Dollar Spot" make sure you do, they have a lot of cute things for a $1! With that being said, I'm still decorating my bathroom, it's one of those projects I just can't seem to finish mostly because I'm very indecisive and can't decide what style or theme I like. I did however get this idea to fill some space on one of my bathroom walls with the letter hooks I found at Michaels.

 Painted the letters black and then realized I should probably paint the hooks black too!
 I saw someone make "His & Hers" key holder plates and thought they were so cute so I took that idea for the letter hooks. I already had black paint, the only trouble I ran into was I couldn't find the letter "I"  so I found an "I" in the wood crafts section at Michaels. It didnt have any hooks on it, it's just a plain letter, the sad thing was it cost more than the ones in the dollar spot. Oh well what can you do my other resort was to spell out "MR & MRS" but that's one less hook for me and I need all the extra hanging room I can get! Anyways I just had to add little hooks on it and it was good to go!

I'm still trying to decide if I want to add an "&" symbol in the middle, I couldn't find one at Michaels or Joanns Fabrics.... Still searching...we will see

This project benefits both me and my husband because now we both have a little place to put our towels/clothes/accessories and what makes me even more happy is I won't have to see "wet" towels on the bed or clothes on the floor......Well, I'm sure that will still happen but a woman can dream!

The Total cost for this project was about $10.
All you need is the letter hooks, black paint, nails, and a hammer!



  1. I did see an "&" symbol at Hobby Lobby, I think, so if you're wanting one, I'd check there! Very cute Olivia, loving all of your dyi posts! :)
