8 large bags of garbage purged out of the house
3 large tubs and one small box of items that will go out for sale this spring
3 large bags of clothing to donate
3 lamp shades
my goal was 12 bags of garbage/ donations and 12 tubs of sale stuff. Now, if I can just get 24 bags/totes/tubs of stuff out of my house I'll be happy.
You can see that there is a big mess of stuff under this desk. We got a HUGE printer/scanner as a family gift. it still needs home. For now, it's on a table under my desk. That's not permanent, but I haven't quite figured out what I want either....
To reward myself, I'm thinking about what I can do to my tiny kitchen to perk it up. I love the color that I painted it ( Midnight Bayou from Valspar) so that is staying. I like the white cabinets, and my countertops are just fine, thank you very much...... so that sort of leaves decor items. I can handle that..... here is some inspiration.
here . I love this. The open shelves, the interesting art, the pottery and metal basket. LOVE IT.
Here. The glass canisters really make an impression.
Here Wood. White. Plants. Enough said.
So, it's clear I'm looking at simple, white rustic kitchens. I think it's time to pare down. Science has told us that if we make choices from a menu of fewer options, we are happier with our choices. I need to have fewer choices in my house.
Here is my kitchen, before I decide on any changes....
It could use a few improvements. ( This was before my paint color change )
