Last week I had a super hectic schedule. I had to drive into the city several times a day for a couple of days, attempt to homeschool, work and organize my house. Not all of those happened all the time. Especially the organize my house part. I just found out that I suffer from a very debilitating disorder. ADCD, Attention Deficit Cleaning Disorder. This means that although I think I'm cleaning/organizing, I am actually appearing to be a horder. It's just awful! And super exhausting. For the record, I'm an amazing organizer, just not in my house. But I'm working on it.
Even though I wasn't able to organize the WHOLE house, I plan way to big sometimes, I was able to get the kitchen done. When we were looking at apartments, I fell in love with this one because of the butcher block counter. It was just screaming, "Come and learn to make bread on me!" I love that rustic/country look.
This whole thing only took about 15 minutes. I borrowed two tension rods from the faux roman shades in the dining room and just cut and sewed in a straight line. I didn't do any proper measurements just did everything by eye, which isn't always good, but as usual, I was in a rush. I whipped out my machine, which hasn't seen daylight in months and with some guidance from my trusty turtle cookie jar, curtains were made! VIOLA!!! It's like having a new kitchen.
Have you done anything to change your space without spending a dime? Let me know. I'd love to hear about it.
On to bigger things....
