If you completed the 4-day check list, from last week, your dining room should be spic and span! Congrats to all those who successfully completed this challenge.
Today we’re organizing our living rooms.
Although I live in a small home, I am fortunate enough to have dual living spaces. The first is a more traditional “sitting room”, which requires virtually no work to maintain. But the other is where we “live”. Living spaces that are used in THIS way is what we're exploring today.
I bet no one is more excited than me to be moving on from the Kitchen Organization challenge. Whew! A lot of work, but entirely worth it. For those of you who missed it, click here. Now on to the next room...
In today's modern world, the dining room is not what it used to be. While they're still a prominent feature in nearly every home, more families are eating in front of the television these days, which has dramatically changed the function of this room.
Welcome to week 4 of the Whole House Organization (WHO) Challenge! We're winding down in the kitchen. Today we're organizing the fridge.
No, it's not the most glamorous thing to write about. But if the kitchen is the hub of a home, then the fridge is the heart of a kitchen. Without this baby, this room is practically useless. So it only makes sense that it should be organized too.
We're in the final stretch of the kitchen organization series for the 2017 WHO Challenge. I hope you're all having small victories along the way!
Today's task centers on a little slither of space that's like prime real estate for someone with a small kitchen: the space above the kitchen cabinets.
Some homeowners finish this area of the kitchen by boxing in the awkward space with plywood, and beefy crown molding that is stained, or painted to match the existing cabinets. Others install glass front custom cabinets. BOTH ideas are nothing short of stunning.
Welcome to week three of my 2017 Whole House Challenge. We're winding things down in the kitchen with just 3 areas left to tackle: under the sink, using the space above the cabinets, and the fridge.
Today's project is: the space underneath the sink
Most of us, myself included, would love to have a custom built kitchen. One complete with a deep corner drawer unit that eliminates the need for a lazy Susan. Or, a system that maximizes the dead space in a blind corner cabinet. Oh man, that would be awesome!
But alas, that is not to be our life. At least not for now.
Welcome to Week 2 of the Whole House Organization Challenge. A challenge were we declutter and organize the whole house. Today we’re organizing the kitchen stations.
Setting up stations (or zones) keeps you from scurrying about from one end of the kitchen to the other to locate things. It helps you find (and maintain) your “rhythm” when cooking. I like to think it also helps me to prepare tastier meals.
Welcome to "my place". I'm Ola, a self-confessed décor addict and DIY think-tank. I love working with small spaces. Make yourself comfortable, and feel free to "shop" my ideas.
