How to display your wardrobe

Recently I’ve been turning my closet into an office, which I actually really love, but I then needed a place to put my clothes. All the really cute wardrobes that I wanted cost about $300, which is out of my price range, also I came across the idea of displaying your wardrobe and immediately started thinking of ideas. These are a few of my ideas, my wardrobe is quite small so it wasn’t as difficult as I thought it might be to find a place for everything, except shoes, probably have a few to many of those.

The first is actually a DIY for jewelry. I took a piece of wood(you can use a strait piece of wood like I did or you can use a letter, circle, arrow, whatever you want), and then I hot glued old doorknobs onto it, and hung some necklaces and a bracelet.

 

For this one all you need is some sort of string, a pice of wood and two nails. Tie the string to the wood, put two nails at the top of your wall, and tie the string at the top to whatever length you want it to be. After that you can put any accessories you want or you can hang it from your ceiling and use it to hang clothes.

 

If you have shelves, putting your clothes and accessories on them is super simple, but still really cute.

The last one is purchasing a wardrobe that you can see into, weather it doesn’t have doors is a dress rack or is made from something like wire that you can see into. I purchased this wardrobe from Ikea on sale for $50.

Gluten free chocolate bundt cake

IMG_0875IMG_0877IMG_0920IMG_0931

One day I was looking for something to bake and I came across this recipe and as I have been baking gluten free most my life when the recipe I was reading said all purpose flour my mind went straight to gluten free all purpose flour. Turns out that the recipe was for normal wheat flour, but never the less the cake came out so incredibly well using gluten free flour I decided to share it as a gluten free recipe. I changed the baking time slightly and changed it from a regular cake pan to a bundt cake as I found that it came out better that way. This is by far the best gluten free cake I have made as it isn’t dry and is also really easy to make.

Gluten Free Chocolate Bundt Cake:

Ingredients

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 3/4 cup gluten free all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and prepare pan
  2. Stir together dry ingredients(sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt) in a large bowl
  3. Add in eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla and beat mixture on medium speed for two minutes
  4. Stir in boiling water(the batter will be very runny)
  5. Pour in pan and cook for 50-55 minutes
  6. Let cool in pan for 15 minutes then remove from pan

For the frosting I just made chocolate butter cream. My family and friends love this cake. A problem that often occurs when I make cakes gluten free is they come out dry, but this cake is moist and delicious. Hope you enjoy:)

DIY Calendar

I am an extremely unorganized person, who often either forgets to do things, or procrastinate’s to the last minute to get what I need done. To hopefully help me get more organized I decided to make a calendar.

To make it I took an old bulletin board (a piece of wood, a picture frame, or poster board would also work), copper paint to paint the boarder, chalkboard paper, masking tape, frames from the dollar store, dry erase makers, and small clothes pens. Of course you can do your own take on it and use whatever you want.

To start I painted the rim of my bulletin board copper, also since my board was very loved and no longer looks great, I used the back of it. After that I planned out where I wanted everything to go and layed it out.

Next I put the chalkboard paper on and made a grid with masking tape. I used short nails to hang my frames onto the board and hot glue to hang the small clothes pens. It’s extremely customizable, which is actually one of my favorite things about it.
