Family Room Organization Console and $100 Walmart gift card giveaway.
Last week I had the FUN opportunity to travel to Iowa and tour the Meredith Headquarters – home to Better Homes and Gardens Magazine! It was incredible to see all of the behind-the-scenes action as well as preview the beautiful items coming out in the BHG Live Better line for the next year. I will be posting more about the trip and what I learned there later this week. And this month for our July challenge we were asked to find a space in our home that needs some space organization. Since we moved into our new home just a few weeks ago, there are many places that need to be organized.
I knew I wanted to do something with the Better Homes and Gardens Crossmill 8 Cube Organizer. I loved the clean lines of the cabinet and I thought the weathered wood finish would look good in my new home since it has a bit of beachy, farmhouse theme. There are so many different ways to use this cabinet. I was originally going to use it in my main floor bathroom to hold towels, washcloths, toilet paper and other supplies.
Also – there is a $100 Walmart gift card for grabs at the bottom of the post!!
But when I came home and put it together I discovered, that when it is put on it’s side it would be the perfect size as a television console. I love the different ways the cubes can be used.
BHG makes fabric cubes that fit exactly in the cubes.
BHG also makes these wire bins that have a fabric liner and a chalkboard front you can write on!
There are also these adorable BHG wood crates. I might have to order them. You can get them online.
I love all of the cubes to get my family room organized. I put my DVD’s in a couple of the bins, frames in another, the remotes and art supplies in one that Ella uses while she watches movies. A couple of the bins I left open and used them to display plants and picture frames. I also love that I can switch up the cubes whenever I want.
Also – this console was under $70. Such a great deal!!
AND, I have a $100 Walmart gift card to give away too!!
All you have to do is leave a comment with what project you would use your gift card for!
І am glad to be one of tһe visitors on tһіs great internet site
(:, apρreciate it fοr posting.

That cabinet would look great in my pink kitchen, as I have very limited cabinets. So I would spend my gift card on it and some floating shelves.
I would love to use the bookshelf as a tv console and replace my ugly laminate black console! I love the natural wood look!
Walmart has some great items that can be used for organizing and I have had my eye on that organizer unit as well as another one that is similar for awhile and just haven’t pulled the trigger yet due to finances.

This gift card would definitely go towards some much needed fresher decor and furniture prices, including the new bunk bed I’ve had my eye on from Mainstays for my two rugrats.

Carmen N says
Well, frankly this time of year I’d probably use it for school supplies (I can’t believe they’re on sale already). But I could also use some to create a slip cover for an old (but super-comfortable) couch.
We just refinished two end tables that have a space where I’d love to put a large rectangle shaped basket. I’d use the gift cards to find two of those and hide my 4 year old’s puzzles and little toys.
Jeanette Thomas says
I would use the gift card to purchase organizing bins to help me conquer my craft room! It always looks like a bomb went off in there, but if I had some of the cloth bins you featured, I would be able to keep projects together so that I’d just have to take the one bin off the shelf and voila! I could get my craft on AND have a tidy room!
I would use it for some picture frames. I love having family photos around the house. I would also get some organizing items. Great Giveaway!
I like the beachy book case! I’ve just bought a new house that is all a coastal theme. Would go great in there!
After 50 years of living in the same house, my parents are moving to be closer to me and my family. I would love to surprise them with this console (I would do the same thing you did!) for their tv and we can use the $100 gift card to help them set up their new home here! Thanks!!!
