Kitchen Catch-All: Solution to a Messy Counter

I don’t know if your home is like Boyd Street’s…

but somehow keys, mail, magazines, grocery lists and heaven knows what else always seem to land on the small kitchen island.  No matter how hard I try to organize and clean each day, it still looks like a mess.

But… the other day while shopping in the office section at Walmart, I came upon what I think is a great solution!

"Kitchen Catch-All"

It’s made of canvas, has metal grommets and hooks and is made to be hung on the wall or as I did here, on the side of an island or desk.  Not too bad for $14!  There are pockets for magazines, bills, grocery lists, and hooks for keys, etc.

I really think someone “handy” could make their own.  If I had my rathers, the bottom pockets would be deeper to hold a business size envelope vertically and the large compartment could have ties on the side to expand or hold items tightly.  Could have been a brighter color, too 🙂

But for now . . .

the messy counter has been eliminated.  Will let you know how long this lasts!  Do you have special ways to keep your counter tops clean?  Would love to hear about them!

Cheers…

Just Move the House: Country Cottage Relocation (Southern Living)

I am really not a fan of blue.. aqua, yes..  but my tastes are changing.  Now after 3 years and all the interior painting at Boyd Street Bungalow being completed, don’t tell me it is time to start over!  Wonder what paint color was used on this paneled wall in the Country Cottage Relocation featured in Southern Living?

"White and Blue Country Kitchen"

Looks like they used the same color in the bathroom.  The white and blue really pop!

"White and Blue Country Bathroom"

Think these pictures will definitely go in my inspiration book.

Enjoy,
