My Best Home Improvement 2013...

 
Looking back on some small home improvements
that I did in 2013...
 
 This one takes the cake! 
And the cake holder too.
 


I decided that after struggling with a small kitchen,
it was time to take charge. I made the decision to reinvent
the entry coat closet. After all, I think I only own
two coats.
 
 
I ripped out the white builder standard wire
rack. Then I had it wall papered with grass cloth, and
 added shelves. This solved my issue of extreme
kitchen overflow. It was a game changer that keeps
me organized. I enjoy having everything in reach.
 
I feel like I have the butlers pantry
that I've always wanted.
 
Do you have a coat closet not being used?
 
I think it would look good with a dresser in it
and glass shelves above, with wine glasses.
How about a wine closet?

  8. I took a closet near my living room, put in a shelf at counter height and them some below that.
    I mirrored the back and put small narrow shelves on the sides. What is this? It's our bar.
    A silver tray, ice bucket, and various cocktail making utensils sit on the main shelf, the bottles
    of vodka, gin, scotch are on the lower shelves. We have our glasses on the narrow shelves.
    It works perfectly!

  12. Woah, your house looks amazing from here. It's really good looking after the home improvement and if you decide on getting the best air purifier as well, it wouldn't be a bad decision. They can drastically change the house's air.
