Dayum y’all…..so much love for the new coffee table:)

Thank you!

I have moved a few things around until I make up my mind.  The acrylic coffee table headed to the guest room as a bench stacked with books.  I moved the pigeon basket back to the family room where it was long ago….and now I have sufficient time to think about it…..which could be anywhere between 2 weeks and a year……give or take.

I don’t like to be rushed ya know…..

Anyway……guess what?  I have some shelves to show you today.  From my house.  I know right….who am I?  Some crazy blogger?  Well I was looking at them on Christmas eve day and all of a sudden they were stripped down and I was cleaning them.  

Again….who the heck am I?

Here is the before!

Hot.  Damn.  Mess.

I had just been shoving crap on them and really not paying attention.  But hey….I am cutting myself some slack because we all do that right.

They aren’t perfect yet but and I could have definitely weeded them out even more but in reality I use these everyday.  They were the only upper cabinets I had in my kitchen so I thought long and hard about removing them a few years ago.

I think I am an “over accessorizer” on shelves and sometimes I have to stand back and edit…..and maybe I am not there yet…. 

BUT…..in actuality these have to be functional for me and they are fitting that bill right now.

What I use on a daily basis is on the first shelf. Dishes and such.

I love finding pretty pottery and flea markets…..especially when it can actually be used for something:)

I have never regretted taking the cabinets down…..not one minute!

You are probably looking at the before and scratching your head thinking they don’t look any different…..haha

At least they are dusted and washed so there’s that.

Somebody asked about the basket on the DR table and I got it at a flea market.  I wish there had of been 2 of them:)

Last night in the middle of the night I woke up and one eye was stinging and watering to the point I could not even open the eye.  It was crazy and it went on for over 15-25 minutes.  I was freaking out thinking maybe a spider of small bug bit my eye and I was going to be blind…..I always take everything to the extreme.

It seems to be OK this morning but I have never experienced anything like that in my life….out of the clear blue!

I will be posting on Thursday instead of Friday this week….joining a few friends in discussing Design Trends for 2021!  They asked me 4 months ago and you would think I would be all organized and such but heck no.  

I have not even started the post yet which is a quality I hate about myself.

Hang in there people!
