I have a big open space in the kitchen screaming for something.
I thought about some open shelving. I know I am the only person in the world that is not super crazy about it. My kitchen is not very big and is super busy. There is a lot going on in there and I feel that open shelving is just more busy. And I have a lot of cabinet space to put everything away (& out of sight). No visual noise. I thought it would be nice for my cookbooks and a nice bowl or platter and a picture or two. Just two shelves. First one would be JUST above the alarm box.
I thought about a bulletin board/message center. Taking all that off my fridge (birthday party invites, notes to be signed, RSVPs, Wedding invites, random family pics, a dinner coupon etc) And, again, unlike everyone else, I don't like chalkboards. They are just too dusty. My boys would want to play with it all the time and it's supposed to be for a purpose which would then annoy me because, I'd never be able to find a piece of chalk and they would erase what ever memos I had written to myself.
Then there is always some art. I could always find something some where to go about the alarm panel.
Hmmm, what would you do if a friend asked you (Anyone else read lots of Cat in the Hat?!).
Thought I'd post for some other "expert" advice! Linking up with Coastal Charm, A2Z Savvy Southern Style, The Thrifty Home & House of Hepworths
