Do you subscribe to the magazine A Simple Life? I absolutely LOVE this magazine. Every issue speaks to me and where I want my house to go- Early Primitive.
To move in this direction, I need to part with many, many items.
Along with parting with some of my
junk treasured items, I really need to simplify my displays. I decided to start tonight on my kitchen cupboards. The first 2 photos are the before.
I haven't changed this display in ages so it was really time. Those old tins are the first things to go. If you like old tins or collect them, shoot me an email, I'll make you a super good deal on them! (I'll be happy to send you a close up of the ones I'm parting with.)
Everything came off the top of the cupboards and I decided to put some of my crock collection there.
The After....much better (still not exactly what I want, but WAY better)
It is extremely hard to get good photos of this area, you can see the glare of the overhead light in the in the top of these photos.
The next thing I need to clean off is my white fridge. I think I cover it with pictures of my kids and my nephew and nieces so I can't see that it's white. I want a black one!
I am much happier with the simplified version. Next will be my kitchen counters - they need an overhaul too. I'll show you those as soon as I figure out what I want to keep!
Have a great weekend.
P.S. I'm thinking I need to plant the seed with my husband that we need to repaint the kitchen cupboards in a putty color - Neutral is my new mantra. I'm not thinking he's going to be real excited about the prospect....
