What a busy week it's been! Hubby's had a Holiday from work this week so we've been organizing and decorating - well painting really since the walls of our tiny front entrance/mudroom are lined in wood but I'm getting ahead of myself :)
So this week we'd planned to at least freshen up our little front entryway and declutter it too and we so have! I can't wait to share it with you but today I wanted to share the first project we completed this week which, oddly enough, happened because we'd made a start on the entryway/mudroom :)
a recent post on de-junking & organizing the large cupboard facing our back door honeys? I was really pleased with how it turned out. A home for everything and I so love using it.
Well, just wait till you see what we did to it this week...
So why change it? Well, when we started to clear out the little front entryway in order for Hubby to freshen the paintwork we had already decided on a complete change out there. Do you remember the green cubbies?
These wonderful little crates have served us well by allowing us to coral bulky items such as bottled water and soda/fizzy drinks. A bonus of course is that the area by the front door, while there are no chilly drafts, it tends to stay cool and so cooled the soda & water too.
Having decided the cubbies were not part of the new design for the entryway/mudroom we had the idea of re-using them in the cupboard at the back door. This too is an area that, with it's stone walls and floor, tends to stay cold. So, why not move the cubbies into the cupboard and store the water and soda/fizzy drinks in there? This would also free up space for the little seating area we wanted. A place to sit and put on/remove shoes.
First task then was to empty one side of the cupboard...
We do, of course, have a mini first aid kit for ourselves at home and why shouldn't furbabies have their own first aid kit too? Sitting by Jade's first aid box is a large tub of Sudocrem. This was recommended to us by our vet in case of scratches from bushes outside during walkies or any other little mis-adventures which need treating but might not be serious enough to need a visit to the vet's practice. Our vet is a bit of a distance from us and we don't own a car, also I'm a "what if?" kinda gal so isn't it better to be prepared and have these things and never need them, than to need them and not have them?
Sitting on top of the Sudacrem is Jade's brush (although this will move to our little mudroom with her grooming things but more of that in a later post :) while under the hanging basket, in the cubby itself (from left to right) some cans of soda (they needed a home so.. :) Next are Hubby's five star wars water bottles (they needed a home too... :)
Finally in this cubby are (from front to back) A bottle of Jade's healthy skin supplement, Jade's Frontline pipettes and her Thundershirt. Jade is very nervous and this jacket has been wonderful helping her cope.
On to the second cubby then honeys...
The third cubby is home to large bottles of soda/fizzy drinks (and two bottles of dilute orange juice :)
What do you think honeys?
You can see what I store in these pockets here :) The top cubbie is now also home, as you can see, to a small cute treat tin belonging to our furbaby Jade :)
The Ikea Variera carrier bag storage unit is now attached to the wall on the other side of the cupboard and still acts as storage for assorted brooms, dusters and small brushes...
Are we the only people who book leave from work to organize our home? Say we're not honeys! :) I hope you've had a fabulous week, chock full of smiles too dear ones :) Till next time, smile lots and hug even more, huggles always xx
