Nesting Monday...

Mondays is usually the day that Clara and I work around our own homes. We try to get some fun stuff around the house done in between cleaning , laundry and runs to the supermarket.
Most of the time is just a little re-arrangement or a seasonal display, nothing major...just a little "nesting fluffing" for us to enjoy the rest of the week!...

We wish constructors will not add those generic cabinet built ins...
They are usually in the upstairs hallways, by the stairs...
They are practical, we know, but if they were not there, we would have a lot more room to add a vintage, sturdy, very cool cabinet or hutch that would provide the same storage.
... But the point is that they do add them...at least in our area they do.

They are usually an awkward space to work with, but with a few simple things you can transform them from this:

...into this...

A few family photos, (avoid a huge collection of frames, if possible!)...
...an old frame with burlap background for texture...
...a shabby candle holder...
and a vintage pottery piece with potpourri...

Displaying a few of your favorite things will prevent those spaces from becoming a dumping destination like this one....

or even worse...YIKES!!!

Hope we inspired you to do a little fluffing of your own!

Don't you just love the word Fluffing? For me it says everything about what it is.
And I love to Fluff!
