Cleaning can seem like such a chore when company's coming and you're busy with other preparations. Fast fix: Hosting last-minute guests won't stress you out if you make cleaning quick and easy by keeping all your necessary supplies handy and portable. Gather cleansers in a bin along with brushes, sponges, and cloths, and stash it all in a readily accessible cupboard. If you have small children in the house, put a childproof lock on the cupboard door.
Don't throw away those extra drawers you have laying around, turn them into a bench! Great for mudroom benches, or for a kid's bedroom or playroom. Simple, cheap, and easy! Or if you have a dresser that has seen better days, you can use some of the drawers for the bench, and the structure of the dresser to make a dress up station. Two great projects from one dresser! #drawersrepurposed
