Anything-Goes-Giveaway-Hop-November1Our giveaway here on Dandy is being sponsored by my favorite company to work with, Brylane Home!
But before we get into the review item, let me explain our apartment and our need for some help.  I don’t know how old our apartment is, but there are sure some funky things about it.  Clearly it was originally built at a time when the only way to heat the house was through a wood burning stove in the kitchen.  There is only one bathroom, with all the pipes exposed, and its on the main floor (with no bathroom upstairs near the bedrooms), and what really kills me are that there are NO CLOSETS downstairs!!  It was almost a deal-breaker, but we were really getting limited on options in trying to find something deleaded in Boston.  I still love our place, but we’ve had to get a little creative with storage.

No closets means a lot of visible clutter and our mud room has become the dumping ground.  I think the biggest problem is the variety of shapes and sizes of things that need organized.

Brylane Home offered us the 5-Tier Metal Closet with Hanging Rod to help in our Fall-cleaning frenzy around here, and it has been the best thing to rock our mud room!  It came in a number of compact pieces packaged extremely well and extremely hard to separate!  For the best, I guess.

The instructions are kind of intense because there a just so many steps to putting this together!  Follow the directions and you’ll be fine.  Two women (myself and my sister-in-law) were able to put it together in probably 45 minutes.  Approach it calmly and the instructions will be straightforward and everything you need is included.

Ta-da!  Once put together, this is VERY sturdy!  Lots of nuts and bolts in several directions holds everything together and gives you the peace of mind that it will hold a lot of weight.

There is a place for everything!  I love that everything is off the floor, with compartments all up the right side, and the long open space up top.  The clothing rack is high enough from the bottom that you can hang coats and still store shoes below without much competition for space.  The coat rack feels like it could even handle a child swinging from its rod.

My only criticism is that I wish more of the swirly designs up the sides were right-side-up hearts instead of upside down.  I kind of think of butts instead of hearts when I see them.  Maybe its a well-known style I don’t appreciate.  Its still gorgeous, regardless.
IMG_8197This metal closet has been just the ticket as we’ve been pulling out more winter coats and accessories.  There is a place for everything, the mud room looks organized and contained, and this structure is not at all bulky or cumbersome.  I love having this in my home!

Dear friends, remember the last giveaway we did with Brylane Home, and how there were SO many comments left about how great a certain storage wardrobe would be?  I listened and…good news, today there is one being given away!!  This is going to be a two-part post featuring the some of the fabulous furniture, appliances, and storage options from Brylane Home!  (The Part II giveaway will be revealed next month!)

brylanehomeThis Fall has been all about clearing out, throwing out, and tidying up!  I’ve been tossing things right and left, taking bags off to donate, and I’ve made a FORTUNE off of things I’ve sold on eBay, haha!  It has felt great, and a big motivator to get our mud room in order was this snazzy 6-Drawer Storage Wardrobe from Brylane Home.  See how this all started:

Yikes.  I know.  It has really become a dump-all, and this room often gets neglected and rarely put back together.  The solution:

71D9BTlbt6L._SL1100_Glorious.  I thought this would be perfect for the amount of space and stuff I wanted to keep in the mudroom.

IMG_6502I was surprised by how compact everything arrived, and I wondered how it turn out to be a full-size dresser, but it all turned out ok.  I probably spent 20-30 minutes assembling this guy.  Everything was labeled well, and the instructions were clear.  Below, the drawers may look flimsy, but a square solid piece fits in the bottom and helps keep its structure sound.

I was originally attracted to the lightweight frame and the pull-out drawers that won’t smash little fingers.  My toddlers can pull out the drawers, pick out their shoes, and put everything away without any loud drawer-smashing or finger-pinching.

We went with black because of the scuffs and markings that inevitably adorn anything light-colored in this house, and so far, its done a great job holding up and looking nice.

What a difference!  I LOVE this storage unit!  I love how it tidies up our dumping ground, and how easy it will be to later use it in other spaces, like as a clothing dresser in a bedroom, or as a craft stash.  Can you picture in your mind just such a use for this?

This is originally $89.99, but on sale now for $59.99, and it also comes in white.  You can purchase it at www.Brylanehome.com, or on Amazon HERE.
