right now i love...open shelves

Why not display all our little treasures out in the open for everyday enjoyment. Instead of hiding them behind closed doors and only bringing them out on 'special' occasions, let cake plates, bowls, pitchers, dishes, and glasses stack on a shelf to enjoy for daily use.
Even pantry items look beautiful on a shelf in canning jars. Not to mention the ease of finding just what you are looking for at one glance.

a makeover story

This blog is a way to help me track and share what I love about all the things that make a house a home. As I wait patiently to buy my first home (in the process so hopefully sooner than later), I have been scouring through blogs & websites to prepared myself so that I can jump feet first the minute I turn the key. As my first post, I had to share this amazing transformation. These are some of the afters, to check out the before and after pages visit  The Old Painted Cottage.
