I promised y'all a better glimpse of this area of my kitchen far too long ago...so today I am finally delivering and letting you in on how we are organize ourselves. Say hello to my "mud room!"
|Love love love my new console table from World Market!|
This is an area I have been calling "no man's land" since we moved in, because it is a large-ish area with no apparent purpose. It won't accommodate a table and chairs, and is basically a large pass-through. So, I set us up with a long console table (this one is from World Market and I absolutely love it), an inspirational gallery wall, and some much-needed organization.
Love my baskets! They are perfect for this job, with big handles and plastic liners inside to minimize dirt getting everywhere. I made the tags using raw wood circles sprayed with the darkest paint I had on hand, and chipboard letters which I also spray painted with champagne metallic paint:
My handbag lives here, right next to a little tray for keys, sunglasses, change, and whatever.
|I can't tell you how life-changing it is to have a designated "home" for your bag. Try it. It will change things.|
It truly is a frugal gallery, as I made most of it myself. I made the vinyl wall art using my Silhouette, and I created the chicken-wire frame to hold "thank you's" and other sundry things.
The subway art is all the places my Hubs and I have lived together (for how I did it, click here). The Bible Verse art I made...and, because I love you, I am offering it as a free printable, in either green or chalkboard background (just click on the picture to download the PDF):
Hope you enjoy!
