Enjoy! — Cat An Ode To My Closet To paint one's house pink and blue Might seem a bit extreme to you. But inspiration struck me hard When I saw this in my neighbor's yard: One man says garbage; I say: 'Scooore!' Try not to puke at the Before: My attic of ungodly hues Was finally gonna get some use! Related Post Sara's heavenly laundry room makeover WHO WANTS TO LOOK AT A LAUNDRY ROOM? I hear it. I know you read the title and you're yelling at me through the computer... Read more I want a dollhouse, not a den! I might as well convert it then. A perfect shape, don't you agree? Let's go and spread some effin' GLEE! I got some rolls, I got some paint. I got my floors a little stained. (Don't worry, I cleaned up the mess – It's just amusing to confess!) By night, my closet looked like this. The horrid white I shall not miss. I like my yellows and my blues and stay away from pallid hues! Out of hot pinks, I get a kick – My landlord's gonna get a tick! My walk-in closet, my abode! With shoes you're always overflowed! You keep my treasures nice and neat and my accounts quite deplete. This is the place where I get dressed – It's only fair it looks its best. 🙂 Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here.

Reply Asafksdjakfdsa….. DO WANT! Reply Lurvely! Reply I like the part when you tick off your landlord. Reply OMG! I used to have that very same dollhouse. It was tricked out with just about every piece of Barbie furniture available. From the kitchen to the bedroom. I even had a toilet and working bathroom sink. Until about the age of 14 I was able to squeeze my whole body through the front door. Best doll house ever! I think it was made by Rubbermaid of all companies. Reply i just wanna say her makeup line is amazing. i have the eye dusts and lipstick, so perfectly pigmented. Reply Oh wow!!! I love this so much. Reply Her house sure is cute! However, I've read some very shady things about Doe Deere and how she runs her business. I was going to write a blog post last year in praise of her makeup line — but a quick Google of "Lime Crime controversy" unearths a little info about how she operates! There's always two sides to a story though, but her PR is definitely off somewhere there. 6 agree Reply This is what my little girl wants her closet to look like Reply What a cute idea! So cool. Reply I thought this was an old post of offbeat's being shared since I know Doe Deere doesn't look like that anymore…sure enough her blog post is from 2008 but the offbeat one is current. Weird! What made you guys go so far back to pull this one out? I think her house looks cooler now 😛 I go back and forth on how I feel about her company and products but I do like her style.
