Pantry Makeover..

We have limited cabinet space in our Kitchen,  so
to expand our storage and have a Pantry space for our canned goods,
and to house some of our small appliances..
we bought this white cabinet at Target a few years ago.

While it does help.. It usually has a lot of wasted space vertically.
I have tried the wire shelves, stacking items, and different idea's to make
the canned items work.. but never found something I really liked for it.

So it was time again to rethink this space.

Here is the before:

We decided to change it up.. and cut some 2 x 4's to use for shelving.
(I painted them black)

a new much better storage solution for our small entry..

2). Washi Tape..  it has so many uses.. like these Decorative Ink Pens

3).  My Valentine's Day flowers - still gorgeous.

4). & 5).  No school for 2 days due to the weather.. 
being able to sleep in,  and having my family at home all day.. love that!

We have a small entryway by our back door which just so happens
to be the one that is used the most.


Happy Valentine's Day..

Today I am sharing what I made for my family as a special surprise for
Valentines Day..   a Candy Bouquet.

In deciding what to do for my family.. I decided on making them each a Candy Bouquet.

Decorative Jar Candle..

I have another fun DIY project..
This one is great for all year..  or would be lovely at a special occasion to dress up
the table decor.

Here goes:

I used:

  • Votive Jar/Candle
  • Ribbon
  • Mason Jar with ring
  • Alphabet stickers

I simply placed the votive jar inside the mason jar,  I also left the ring on that goes on the jar - because I liked the look (no lid however), then I attached a pastel pink ribbon,
and added the word Love..

So cute..
