Innovative Storage Solutions

Walking through home dept the other day, I saw some really cool stuff looking at their kitchen section.  Drawers and cabinet doors are getting a lot more "fashionable."  I saw sooooooo many different selections, and I'm not just talking about different finishes on wood cabinet doors, but the looks.  Some seemed like horizontal drawers stacked on top of each other and when you open them, they're actually single drawers that are deep and have different styles of organization in them.  It's like IKEA but fancier, from dish storage to pots and pans all organized in different hooks and slots.  It almost seemed like a closet concept, but in ones kitchen drawers :) Pretty cool

Inspiration This Week

Sooo. . . Inspiration this week truly came from doing nothing.  Texas had a horrible storm where everyone freaked out and everything was closed down, even Starbucks!!!! HAHAHAHA

SO from doing nothing and pretty much being stuck at home I really had time to just think and imagine.  Like I mentioned before, I am looking for a new place to live, but one day and one day soon I'd love to buy my own house.  What I did this week was pretty much imagined myself having all the money in the world and totally making my house my style in every possible way.  Not just the usual in picking out finishes and changing the paint colors here and there, but I really went into depth planning out how many sq feet the house would be, then what the measurements of my kitchen island would be, my ideal bedroom sizes and so on.  I truly loved every part of it and loved going through different magazines and making a collage of everything I liked.  Not so much of the usual "organized" look, but more of the scrap booking idea.  I cut pictures out, circled, made comments; you name it I did it :)
So next time you are a little bored, I suggest getting out some magazines, scissors, and glue and imagine away ;)
