Being the neat freak that I am, I’ve really never liked having notices on the fridge. The paper gets in the way when you’re opening the doors and it looks really messy which drives me insane!
So in a bid to combat this issue, I’ve rearranged all the things on our fridge onto a black metal board in in the hallway next to the intercom – and I actually think it’s working out!
I spray painted the metal board black and stuck it to the wall using 3M adhesive strips for picture frames. Then I just got some basic envelopes, labelled them and organised everything into neat little bundles so that it’s easy to find – pretty simple, right?
I’m going to have to create a 2nd one for the laundry area for all the random pieces like takeout menus but at least all the important things are organised for now…
Finding the right artwork for our home is proving to be a really difficult task – it’s either expensive and beautiful or affordable yet not quite right.
In a bid to end our torment in finding some art for home, H. decided to try and make his own geometric poster to fill our art void. He’s quite proud of his efforts and wanted me to post this on the blog to share with you – what do you think?
It’s a bit different to what I imagined the art would be around our home but we’re happy to have this as a temporary fix around the house until we can buy something that ticks the boxes!
One of the battles that I have with H. is that we don’t always see eye to eye on what goes into our home. He’ll often ask me why I want to have what I want in the house and my usual reply is “Because I like beautiful things!”
In fact, I say it so much that I thought it would be a bit of fun to make a poster of it and have it on our shelf… at least it will save my breath next time H. asks – I could just point to it instead!
The past weekend also saw me add to my latest addition of beautiful things… my new silver Uashmama bag! I’m sure you’ve seen these floating around on various blogs and Pinterest but for those of you who don’t know, it’s a washable paper bag. Most of you probably think I’m crazy BUT it’s pretty and functional – it’s now the new home for our keys.
Can’t believe a year of blogging has gone by so quickly – hope you’re all having a good Queen’s Birthday weekend!
