This week I had the opportunity to have Horderly come out and help me organize my new pantry! Over the past two years I've been going through a very slow remodel on my house, adding two extra bedrooms upstairs. The one thing I added to the downstairs was a pantry that is attached to the kitchen. It added some much-needed food storage space, but I never had the time to really organize it. Things got shoved in there, and it was disorganized and messy. Horderly is a New York based . . .
This post is sponsored by Tarkett NA. In the ongoing saga of updating my house . . . this week I tackled the garage. Unfortunately, home prices in Southern California are at a premium, which means that we have to use every square inch of space that we’ve got. As a family of four kids, finding the space for instruments and desks can be a challenge, not to mention the suitcases, sleeping bags, and random crap one needs to store. So I don't park my car in the garage, and have wanted to turn it . . .
My kitchen remodel has definitely been a "hurry up and wait" process. I did a structural remodel when I moved in almost two years ago, moving the cabinets around to create an island and open up the kitchen to the rest of the room. Here is what it looked like before: Rather than an island, the original kitchen had a wall with pantries and a refrigerator. The result is that I couldn’t see anyone in the living room while I was in the kitchen . . . so the kids ended up plopping on the floor . . .
