We’ve been in our house for just over two years now & though there are still approximately 8954 items on the to-do list, we are slowly getting around to making it our own, a place that we not only love but functions well for our growing family. I thought it would be fun (and helpful!) to share how we organize our kitchen, since of all places that’s definitely where we spend most of our time.
A little background on our kitchen, the white cabinets & big white sink were there when we bought it and I love them both. I have always been drawn to white in a kitchen and few things make me quite as happy as bathing both our girls in that sink, it’s saved many long winter mornings when we just needed something for extra entertainment! The wood pallet back splash was something my husband put in when we did our wall (in the room that connects to our kitchen). He thinks it’s too much so close to the other room but I am all about it, I love how they match and also, give me all the wood pallets, all the time. The stainless steel appliances we added last winter so really the last “big” thing we have left to do is counter-tops. We really love the idea of butcher block but think that will be too much rustic with the pallets and also are nervous about resale value with those, so we are thinking a granite in possibly a grey. Or tan. Any ideas are welcome. 🙂
So organization! I hate clutter & am definitely a “less is more” kind of girl, so I tend to be very selective when it comes to what we have on our counters. I try to go with a little bit of pretty and a little bit of function, and love to switch it up throughout the year based on the holiday or the season.
You can find the Extra® gum 35-stick packages in the checkout line at Target, be sure to pick up a pack to organize your own kitchen! It’s as easy as: 1) declutter, 2) select color scheme, & 3) add personal touches like your favorite gum.
Wishing you all a happy, happy Tuesday! XO
