I addressed the chaos that is our back porch. It's not a large space. I moved that bookshelf (with the paper towels in it) down, and put up two coat hooks. I'd bought them years ago and never used them in a previous house. Sometimes it's useful to be a packrat. I'll hang one more hook there.
I have almost no closet space in this house -- one small closet for Adam and me, and an itty-bitty closet in Julia's room. That's it!! So hooks galore is one solution.
Alright ... next project: the kitchen window. I loathe nasty old mini-blinds.
Mr. M. was clearly afraid his mini-blinds would come down in his dishes. He nailed them in.
Anywho, after a trip to Wally World, I returned with the correct rods to hang curtains on doors. This is the door to the back porch from the kitchen:
And right behind it, the back door to the deck. Those are matching cafe curtains, but I only had two ...
So I had no curtain left for my wannabe-magical kitchen window. I went digging around and found some tea towels I never use. Wrinkled of course.
Somehow I love a magical look, but I'm a bit challenged in making it happen in my house, haha!!
At some point I'll find the right lacy curtain for there. Or a better, bigger tea towel. Magical curtains should have some POOF!, and this towel arrangement lacks poof.
