Command Central

DSC_0757 Every kitchen needs one and I’m not talking about a stove or a fridge or even a coffee machine (but absolutely without a doubt I couldn’t be without mine, I am NOT a nice person without coffee) but I am talking about a command central zone. You know, that place where you can drop everything; keys, change, mail, school work, the list goes on. It was critical that I incorporated one into our new kitchen (which we JUST finally finished, well except for the window treatments but more on that later). Honestly, it’s the best use of this little unused space in our hallway leading to the kitchen. I gave up a little closet space for it but it was worth every inch. Now there is an organized place for all the clutter and it stops it before it gets into my kitchen, bliss! As with most of my projects, I injected a good amount of DIY into this little nook as well. What is now the magnetic board was a chalkboard I picked up at HomeSense. The frame had just the right amount of whimsy to it and was the colour I wanted. I simply glued aluminum sheeting onto the chalkboard part to make it magnetic, covered the aluminum with this cheery polka-dot fabric and trimmed the edges with some ribbon. Voila, a customized magnetic board pretty enough to fit in with the rest of the decor in my new kitchen. I loved the polka-dot fabric so much that I used it to cover this $50 stool from Target (it was a terrible red chenille covered thing) added some nail head detail and it’s now the perfect perch for kiddos doing homework or art projects while keeping them close by.

Oh Monday! You arrived too quickly. I wish I could spend today curled up here in this cozy chair at #cmiprojectkelso with a warm cup of coffee! This room was feeling so flat to me with just painted walls. I’d never tried  @urbanwalls wall decals before but I figured what did I have to loose?! Worst case I didn’t like them and I took them down. I can’t believe how easy they were to install and how much better they make this room look! This isn’t an ad, it’s just me sharing a great experience. The moon last night was unbelievable!! Good bye 2017 and welcome 2018! Wishing each of you good health and much joy this year. #newyearseve #newyearsday We barely squeaked out this kids Jack and Jill bath in time for the holidays but having the kids out of my bathroom is truly the gift that keeps on giving.
