House For Six

February: Behind Closed Doors

Deme CrinionComment
We've spent the majority of January attempting to whip our his/hers shared office into organized shape and give it an aesthetic that both the hubs and I enjoy.  Have I ever mentioned that we have completely different taste when it comes to home decor?  I'll save how we struggle through that to find common ground for another post.

For now, we're trying to wrap up a few of those lingering office projects this week, and with the faint light of order at the end of the tunnel finally in sight, I've been thinking about where to focus for February.

This has been the worst winter as far as stomach bugs, colds, and general ickiness.  We've needed to access medicine and remedies in the middle of the night, and instead of knowing exactly where and what to grab, we were plowing through this at 1am.
Don't mind the pink headband and the black bear claw.  It actually wasn't quite this bad, but our midnight scrambles and digging have left it a hot mess.  To say the least.  We sure could pretty up the inside too.

Sadly, it's not the only cupboard in our house in need of help.  The shelves below this one have a hodge-podge of towels and linens that constantly get mixed up....the linen closet in our master bath is a similar story....I'm pretty sure I saw a bike helmet in the pantry the other day....let's not even mention the coat closet in the front entry....and the kitchen cupboards, while not as crazy, could definitely use some better thought. 

So, I'm deeming February the month of cupboards and drawers!  I know I won't get to them all, but if I can salvage our linen closets and give the kitchen some better organization, I think we'll be off to a good start!

How about you?  Anyone else need to tackle the scary that lies behind your closed doors? What's the worst cupboard in your house right now?  You can tell us, we're all friends here :)
