First things first, I'm thrilled that our kitchen is being featured over at Remodelaholic today. Be sure to check it out. This amazing blog is the perfect place to get inspiration for your own home. A special thanks to Cassity for inviting me over.
I have been excited about today all week. Several reasons: 1) the Remodelaholic feature; 2) no gym on Thursdays so I get to sleep in a little later; 3) taking my son to the park to play; 3) THE SUN WILL BE OUT AND IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE 70 DEGREES! We have had our fair share of dreary cold weather here and I am ready for Spring. Funny how sunshine can change your whole mood. I don't care if I wake up and have two flat tires, I will be happy tomorrow (as long as the sun is shining).
To bid farewell to the cold weather, I went on a bit of a winter de-cluttering mission. I am never excited to get all the winter coats, boots, gloves, hats and boots out, but I am always a bit slap happy to put them away.
This is what our mudroom looks like on a normal (cold) day.
This is the new and improved Spring version.
So much better without all those heavy coats.
I tend to get a bit side tracked when I start a project like this.
What started out as simply putting some winter wear away,
ended up as a full fledge spring cleaning of the mudroom and pantry.
Since this is the pantry door, there is no hiding a mess.
I would love to spruce this space up with some cool paint and glass containers,
but I was trying to use what I had and just reorganize everything.
Here are the famous tin cans from this post. This is also where I keep most of
the kids' craft supplies and my cleaning supplies.
And just to make sure Old Man Winter knows he is no longer welcome here,
I added a lovely message to the chalkboard.
