Decorating & Organizing…Quick fixes

Over the weekend I did a quick fix to a part of the kitchen that had been driving me nuts… There isn’t a ton of counter space in the kitchen, so the microwave and toaster oven are at the end of the counter, but the problem was that fruit & other miscellaneous things found their way on the counter, too, thus blocking the microwave door.

What a mess, huh?!

Soooo I sorted through some old scrap wood that my family had lying around up at our summer camp & made this:

I painted it with some extra paint samples we have lying around…you probably noticed the paint tester strips on the wall (we’re painting the kitchen & living room-pics coming soon!)I made sure to paint underneath, too!  Done painting & let it dry for a few hours.

World of difference, no?

We’re not 100% sold on the color (it’s a little retro…), but we’ll see what it looks like once the walls are painted & then decide if I’ll re-paint it.
