Love Your Home. Outdoor Dining DIY Cement Tile.

Outdoor dining was high on the list when we bought our house. I fell in love with cement tiles but not the price tag. So instead we opted for this great DIY. Or as Wes calls it DIW (Do It Wes).  Here’s how we/he did it.

(1) Painted the area in grey outdoor paint for cement. (2) Cut out an 8 inch hexagon stencil from a piece of cardboard. (3) Trace the stencil with a white Sharpie Paint Pen, oil based. (4) Use a 12 inch ruler to complete the three lines inside.

We’re very happy with the final results and it’s held up well over the last year with only a few minor touch ups.

    Oh yes, WES!!  DIW. that is funny. 

    I used to sing the bob the builder theme song to jeff, “Can we fix it?” and one time he sang right back, “Not. Right. now!”  This outdoor situation is superb. Thanks for sharing. -NonnahsReplyCancel

No Wire Hangers Celebrates 10 Years of Professional Organizing!

 

10 Year anniversary, professional organizer, Los Angeles Wow, that went by quickly! It still amazes me that I get to work everyday doing something that I truly love. When I started No Wire Hangers ten years ago I had no idea where it would take me. It’s been quite an journey to say the least.

 

With each passing year what gives me the most satisfaction is working with my amazing clients. If it wasn’t for them working side by side with me none of this would have happened. So thank you for 10 amazing years and I look forward to what the future brings.

For The Love of Your Own Space

Last year I bought my first house in Los Angeles. It’s a 1932 Spanish Revival in Leimert Park. The house has been pretty much untouched since 1932 so it’s been a journey restoring it to it’s glory. Since I make a living working with clients closets I wanted to have one to really show off. The master bedroom has two closets that were not that impressive. In the hallway there were two closets. One functions perfectly as a linen closet and the other was a walk-in with two rods for long hang storage. I knew that I could easily transform the walk-in to my master closet. It’s right outside my bedroom so it made sense that this could be my closet. I drew up some rough sketches of what I wanted and then I used painters tape to outline the design of the closet. I recommend doing this so you can really get a feel for the space.

It was important to me to use real wood for the closet, remaining true to the time period. The left side of the closet was a little bit wider than the right so I made this space for shoes. I framed the closet around the window with a double hang on either side and drawers down the middle. I repurposed the nobs from the kitchen after I boiled them in water to remove the layers of paint. The chandelier was a Craig’s List find that added a bit of glam to the closet. The rug was $15 from my favorite, and in walking distance, TJ Maxx. The Organizing Barbie was made by my Mom who gave it to me when I started my business. The space holds pretty much everything except for my long hang which is stored in the second closet in my bedroom.

To say that I am happy with how it turned out would be an understatement. I love that I can get dressed in my closet with the door closed. For only a little more money than I would have spent on a dresser, I was able to build my dream closet. And most of all I love watching my daughter Maude play dress up in Mommy’s closet.
