I've been flat out painting and rearranging lately. I made over my Dining Room using the buffet from my walk in pantry. I bought it for $80 about three years ago (such a bargain for such a beautiful and solid piece).
The pantry has heaps more space and the Dining Room has a beautifully refreshed storage unit to display my beautiful plates and glasses. I love decorating with utility pieces......it's one of my favourite ever decorating things to do. It was a big job stripping it back and repainting it and I'm soooo glad it's done. My painting wrist has given out in protest but me thinks it was very much worth it!!! ;O)
The buffet which was originally in the Dining Room was then listed on ebay and made me a few hundred extra dollars......which will come in very handy with the pool installation looming. See how I just worked that in there......the pool has been APPROVED! Personally, I think it was the tears that got it across the line. Hot tip; Council officers don't like sobbing lunatics apparently.
So after all that painting and rearranging and cleaning and Christmas crafting I thought the pantry could do with a good zhooshing......until it sparkled! I think I'm all set for the Christmas grocery shop......once my dodgy wrist heals that is!
|Pantry organising - this is the utility side - take a closer look at the reflection in the colander and you can see the whole pantry.|
|The tree just keeps getting piled on with handmade decorations and blingy baubles I found in the cupboard. What a happy jumble!|
|Handmade feather baubles (acrylic baubles and feathers are from Lincraft)|
I'm kinda knackered so I'm off to make a cup of tea and read a magazine. I can still turn the pages with my good hand ;O)
Happy Hump Day!!!
