I decided to do a little reorganizing. It is a dreary Sunday with threats of storms so projects inside were a must. We bought this end table about 10 years ago when we moved into our house. At the time, it seemed like a style I liked. Oh, how times change! While it is a good, sturdy piece, the style is not really what I have in mind anymore (probably thanks to Pinterest inspiration:).
I enjoy couponing and I have kept my binder and ads in the kitchen. I tend to throw things in the kitchen cabinet and it becomes a mess. See?
I put a basket in the top drawer for any coupons that need to be put in my binder and the envelope I take shopping with me each week.
This has left me with lots of extra space in the cabinet in the kitchen to work with. You'll have to wait a little while for that "after" since it is going to go along with cleaning out my kitchen. One of my summer projects from teaching is to go through my kitchen and throw out and reorganize since it hasn't been done since we moved in. I'm sure there are things I don't even remember putting in the cabinets and I'm really feeling the need lately to purge and get rid of things we don't really need. I'm craving a more streamlined house lately!
