Oh, how reFRESHing it is to FRESHen up a small bathroom space. What better way to add a fresh touch than with a fun Mason Jar DIY I found on Pinterest *wink* Hi, my name is Abby Hathorn, and I have become addicted to Pinterest–not pinning weddings and babies, but pinning my dream blue home and small space organization. Gee…thanks, mom and Facebook friends, for pulling me into the Pinterest-loving matrix *wink*
So, who can guess what this week’s theme is on VIP? *wink*
Today on VIP Home, I am going to talk about how an easy “Mason” jar DIY freshened up and organized my small apartment bathroom space. Come on–let’s take a look, before I get distracted and start pinning more photos of lovely little blue houses *wink*
This week on VIP Home (and the entire week on the blog), we are going for BOLD. And after many stars displayed their BOLD fashions at the Oscars last night (Hello–Jennifer Aniston!), I cannot help but want to embrace the bold *wink*
Now, on this particular VIP Home post, I am going to show y’all how I transformed an old dresser drawer into a custom, one-of-a-kind shelf for my small apartment bathroom. If you would like to join in on the DIY fun, you will need the following:
An old, solid wood drawer (picking a size appropriate for your bathroom)
Decoupage glue (I used Mod Podge.)
A foam brush
Paint color of your choice
Scrapbooking paper in multiple patterns
The final product:
Now, while we are all preparing to clean up our homes for spring, did you know you should also clean up your social media? SAY WHAT?! Yes–Digital dirt can be pretty gross and can even prevent you from reaching your full potential (whoa…way more serious than dust bunnies).

My closet is finally complete! Ah…I just had to say that right off the bat because I am so very excited! I’m so excited and I just hide it! *dance break*
As promised, I have a very special closet tour video to share with y’all. Who knew achieving a boutique-style closet could be so simple–well, third time is the charm + a few visits from mom later…it was simple *wink* So, to save y’all the hassle of re-organizing y’all’s closets two, three, four, or more times…before reaching perfection, check out the video below for the tour of my closet + ideas + tips.

Do y’all remember when I bought that denim vest for two dollars at my hometown flea market? Let’s refresh our memoryhere*wink*
Now, because I love DIYing denim SO much, I decided to share with y’all one of my favorite denim-bleaching techniques–tie-bleaching denim–on this special VIP DIY. Ooo…I wonder what it could be *wink*
A denim vest/jacket
1/2 cup of chlorine bleach (I used Splash-less Clorox.)
A glass cup
1/2 cup of water
A foam brush
Several rubber-bands or cloth ties
WARNING: Before getting started, please note that you will need to do this DIY in a well-ventilated area. Also, do not directly inhale any bleach fumes. Remember bleach will bleach. Be careful and wear old clothes! If you are sensitive to smells or bleach, do not attempt this project.
This week on VIP Home, I am going to chat about how I worked #LikeAGirl on my apartment patio installation project. Would it have been easier to beg my dad to do it? Absolutely. Would it have been easier to hire someone to do it? Absolutely. BUT I wanted to do it myself…I wanted to pull off the project #LikeAGirl
So, why am I putting “Like A Girl” in a hashtag? Well, when I stumbled upon #LikeAGirl on Facebook, I was overtaken with curiosity. As a teenager, I really feel like the Always commercial will make a large impact on not only young girls, but also society as a whole because it carries a fantastic message. Throwing, hitting, running, and working like a girl is and should be a good thing–it should not be used as an insult. Now, I will save my other comments about this commercial for a later blog post–it’s time to chat about the VIP Patio Project *wink*
