Okay, well...we haven't physically gotten it yet, but we ordered it!

I am so excited!
(Seriously, you can't even imagine excited I am...)

We're living in a world of hand-me-downs right now and soon we will be able to throw some new in there! I mean, I am totally cool with my hand-me-down bed frame, my hand-me-down craft table, my hand-me-down spare bedroom bed, but I am also totally cool and really excited to say that Bob and I will be the owners of a...


and a

Our living room will look a little something like this!

Okay, realistically it will look NOTHING like that!
But its fun to pretend it would! Haha.
It will still look cute in our little world of rented apartment paneling!

The sad thing is, it won't be here until next Wednesday!
My Pampered Chef party is next TUESDAY!
So...camping chairs and kitchen chairs it is for our guests I guess.
Once we tell them that its out of our control that our NEW furniture won't get here until Wednesday, I'm sure they'll understand though.
If not, too bad! ; )

From milk box to beautiful box.

In our laundry room we have a small shelving unit of three shelves. Its where I keep the soap, borax, dryer sheets, etc.

Bob tends to get dressed for work in that room because working in a kitchen he has to wash his limited supply of work clothes like every other day.
He also tends to just throw his clean clothes on the bottom shelf. This bugs the heck out of me, because it looks like a messy pile of clothes just sitting there!
(not that the room is ever actually clean, haha)

The other day I was trying to find a bin we could put on the shelf for him to put his clothes in...
I then thought of a box I had in my car from work. It is the box that our milk comes in. I measured it.

It was the PERFECT size!

I grabbed some fabric and a glue gun and went to work!

I just roughly cut the fabric and wrapped the box like a pretty little present.

Didn't she turn out wonderful?!

It's not completely done yet, though. I plan to line it with a plain black fabric to hide the rough edges of the fabric. But i was just so excited about how cute it turned out I couldn't wait to share!I am actually going to make a matching second one to put on the second shelf as well.

Any thoughts???

Has anyone ever tried/owned one of these?
The Shark Pocket Steam Mop

We're thinking of buying one.
I'm hoping you can give me some advice!
Let me know what you think of it.
Is it worth it?
Good purchase?
Does it work well?
