Skip to about halfway through if messy kitchen tables make you sick to your stomach...
But I'm sure Andrew pefers it looks like this than be full of craft stuff as it has been on and off since we moved here.
It is pretty much his fault that it looks like this. He forced me to make my own deadline. I chose "to be done before I turn 26." I just realized my birthday is in exactly a week. YIKES! So much analyzing.
Yes, I suppose I could have set up station in the actual office we set up for me, on an actual huge, beautiful desk.
But that's upstairs.
Away from the dog.
Away from the TV.
Away from Andrew.
Away from the cupoard full of crackers.
And most importantly...
Away from the coffee machine & cream.
I'm thinking that by seeing this mess day in and day out, I will be forced to work hard on it because that is the only way I can "clean it up." And anyone who knows me, knows that seeing this when I am trying to read and relax will drive me INSANE!
If that's not motivation. I'm not sure what is.
Worry not.. I have some fun things to show you...
A couple weeks ago I found this cute, dirty, haggard looking glass bottle at a garage sale for 25 cents. I had no clue what I was going to do with it. But since making our spice rack/cabinet, I've had an odd obssession with neat shaped jars.
After much deliberation, I ended up with this..
Even if we don't use them after we move, this project cost me under 5$. The mod podge was the most expensive thing.
Design on top: Dollarama napkins. Carefully cut.
Tiles: Oober cheap at home depot. I can't even remember how much. I know I got 2 kinds of tiles, over a dozen for maybe 5-6$..
