I survived another day :)
I had a major 'poor me' session last night if you caught my little venting post.
But I think I'm sane now.
I haven't quit OT school yet... though I swear it's trying to quit on me.
I promised you something fun today.
So how about something organized and cute?
Sound good to you?
I stumbled upon this picture a while back and fell in love with the simplicity of it.
I love the organization...and I love the natural colors of it all :)
I have two containers that sit out on my counter that hold all my utensils.
One is just a generic stainless steel one I got as a wedding gift...and the other is a cute square tin one I got from Hobby Lobby a while ago.
Once I saw this picture, I was completely over my generic utensil holder.
Don't you love how ideas hit and you have to do something about it right then?
Well I so wanted to do something about it right then.
But it took me forever to decide if I wanted to use a tray like the inspiration or if that was just too cluttered on my little counter.
I kept going back and forth but I did happen upon these cuties at our Goodwill...
(and, no, the kitty was not found at Goodwill- that's our sweet Hobby)
Hobby likes to watch me work on projects- usually he sticks his nose right in it...which is okay unless it's hot glue and he kind of goes psycho. :)
I contemplated painting the white one but decided to leave it alone.
I gave them both a good scrubbing and then jazzed them up a bit.
The glass jar just has a piece of thick brown and white ribbon wrapped around it and secured with hot glue.
Then I tied a piece of jute around it.
Big sigh of relief for cute organization.
My utensils don't look as beautifully organic as the inspiration photo but I love that they're sorted.
Am I weird to think that the wooden spoons and silver whisks look pretty together?
See my cute little square tin box?
That's the one I got from Hobby Lobby forever ago.
I think the trio looks good together.
and you can't forget my blinged out Kitchenaid.
I did this a while ago and got an exasperated response from my hubby about it.
He came home from work, took one look at the Kitchenaid and said
"every day I come home, this house gets just a little bit more girly"
Sorry hunny...but at least it's not pink :)
As for that generic ole' utensil holder?
It now nicely holds all my paintbrushes.
So I'm thinking that I like it fine without a tray.
I'm afraid that putting a tray with them would make the counter look too cluttered...
what do you think?
Tray or nay?
I think they go great with my backsplash art.
I"m thinking things are coming together in the kitchen :)
And...not girly, hubby.
Oh...and cute too.
So maybe a little girly :)
Hope everyone is having a great mid-week day!
