Plus you know, a mere 4 days after we moved in, Lily decided it was time to see what life was like outside of the uterus, we've gone through two major construction projects.
I really do intend to do some posts about our home and the transformations, but that takes time to compose and I just haven't been discipline enough.
BUT. I need your help with something.
I cannot figure out what to do with this space.
I didn't try to straighten up before I took this photo with my phone, because this is what it looks like all the time. Sometimes even worse.
It's this space between our stove and the main cabinets which include the sink. The cupboards are really short, so we'd fill a trashcan that fit in there in about three hours, no joke. So the trashcan is out.
I should go put the broom, swiffer, mop in the hall closet, the only closet we have. But I'm lazy.
There is also some recycling behind the trashcan. I'm planning on moving the calendar to a different wall because this is the view when you walk into or look into the kitchen.
Originally, there was a side door here, that would have gone to a patio/backyard in the original house layout. Now my parents granny flat is on the other side of that wall.
I feel like there has to be some way to make this area more attractive (I may put up this wall canvas which I recently won from The Nester ) once I move the calendar.
But what else can I do?? Maybe a black trashcan would help since our appliances are black and the cabinets are a dark mahogany.
Any other bright ideas? Have at it!!
