This next pic shows my little "hiding place" for the stuff that seems to be around on a day to day basis. Notes, grocery lists, random easter baskets, artwork, things to fix or add batteries to. They all end up shoved in this little corner because from the living room you can't see it and that in itself is all I need to make it feel a little less chaotic. You feelin me? I bet you are!
And here is another view...See how you can't see my junk corner from the living area? Gotta have me a hiding space in the house we build.
So the point of this post was actually to show a few little things I tweaked in order to stage the house for pictures and showings since we are finally getting closer.
The kitchen looks absolutely fine I know but I felt like I needed to remove a few more things to make for better pictures. 1st thing I did was remove the fridge clutter of artwork and to do lists and decided what needed to go from my junk nook.
look more like this
(with some great photography at hand of course..more on that in another post..and no they are not my photography skills;)
Just by de-junking, placing the blender in a cabinet(and I actually moved the knives to the pantry during the shoot) I think it opened up the space and will let people see the space and not the stuff.
Then there is this corner. Since we use our coffee maker religiously twice a day I could not bear to tuck it away in a cabinet so I moved it to.
See it? She doesn't look bad there does she?
The mixer on the other hand is a nice appliance that happens to match everything and helps it look like a real functioning kitchen(which it sometimes isn't due to my lack of desire to cook these days) so I left her there in all her glory. I did however move the silver bucket of cooking utensils to the pantry for photos as well..At the moment they are neighboring up with Mrs. Bunn(the coffeemaker).
So what do ya think? She looks all clean and organized doesn't she...Like "move in ready" I would say!
I present the final before and after below:
(as you have probably noticed we didn't end up painting the cabinets like I had discussed in this post.
Here is the not so appealing before...
To um "we would like to make a very generous offer and move in next week"!
Have I ever mentioned I'm a dreamer?
