Under Cabinet Under Cover Reveal


So I decided after taking on Donna's Heap of Change Challenge from Funky Junk Interiors and organized  My Pantry I thought, why stop there?

So I decided to tackle my under sink cabinet. You know, the cabinet where it all goes?
Remember how it looked?

I have no shame, putting it all out there to make y'all look good haha.
Here's the cabinet next to it.


Wow, that's bad. Shame on me, but hey I'm human right and we human's get messy from time to time. My excuse is I've refurbished two complete houses in the past four years and I got tired. Okay that sounded good, now back to the cabinets.

Out it all came.

It doesn't look like so much on the counter but all of it was crammed in a small space.


I found my goo gone, my paint brushes and some wood glue I'd been looking for.


Found 3 bottles of Dawn liquid.


So I combined them into one.


And threw away lots of junk.


I wiped it all down and put some racks in to organize things a little better, well a lot better!


There we go, now I can actually find things!





and the other cabinet before...


I took it all out and got that shelf installed.




Piled it all up on that poor little island again, haha.

The shelf gave more room and a place for everything!

And once again the little kitchen island was saved from the dreaded clutter.


And the photo bomber appeared again!

Look What I Found In The Garage

As some of you may remember my husband and I moved into his family's 94 year old home a year and a half ago.
We have been slowly fixing it up and in the process have found many treasures lurking in the attic and the garage that also has an attic.

Yesterday while digging through some things in the garage I found some more treasures and wanted to share them with you.

It's an old brass fire extinguisher, I stuck the old bicycle wheel on top to see how it would look if I made it into a table. Not sure yet what I'll do with it. I've also seen then made into lamps. Or maybe just leave it alone and display it somehow.

If you have any ideas let me know..



I was super excited when I saw it.

I also found two of these horse yokes.
 And several of these animal yokes. This one is iron but I found some made of wood also. I'm going to be showing you how I used one in my home in the next few days.

 A little worse for wear but pretty cool none the less and the thermometer still works!

 Old General Electric clock, love the red.
 Do you know what this is?
 An antique juicer made by Juice King, awesomely made!
 Antique french fry cutter.

Hmmm, wonder what this held? lol

Rival grinder
 Old step stool
 It needs some love but it is totally stable and functional.
Another stool that needs some love.
It's like a treasure hunt, lots of fun!
There is a whole bunch of white chippy wood planks out there too and I'm in the process of doing something with some of it, here's a sneak peek...

Mounting a hook for what's going to hang on it, I'll reveal it soon, I promise1

Dining Room Terrariums and Decor


I love terrariums with greenery.




And boxwood wreaths.


Another one holds dishes on the table.



Added some more blue and white in my cabinet.



Under Cabinet Under Cover

Okay after successfully completing my first Heap of Change Challenge from Donna at Funky Junk Interiors I decided to keep going.
So what's my next heap of shame to show for the whole world to see?
My under cabinet under cover shame...



This was all organized at one time, stop snickering, it was!!!
Let's just say it, my name is Teresa and I'm a Stuffer...whew, glad to get that out of the way.


But life gets busy and sometimes things just get 'jostled' to put it nicely.
I have no idea what is under this mess,


I can barely cram anything else in,  darn!!!

The cabinet below has NEVER been organized. It even has an extra shelf that goes in there that I've never installed.


This is like if one thing moves the whole shebang comes tumbling down.
So I just have to fix it, I can't stand it any longer.
So come back on Thursday and I'll show you how I transformed the spaces.
