Sweet Little Details

I really believe that it’s the little details in a home that make your space special.  Ok, that sounds cheesy.  But, it is true.  We have made some major repairs, spend lots of money, and in the end it’s the little projects worth a few bucks that make me so proud of our home.  I have been excited for days about the new towel bar we hung in the bathroom.  This is not only a convenience, but looks so much better than having the towel laying on the sink all the time- and, it only cost me about $3! 

So, last night while finishing up the living room curtains we also hung up some coffee mugs in the kitchen.  I bought a few new red mugs at Wal Mart for $2 apiece.  I got a few cup hooks, and viola!  Instant face-lift for the kitchen space.  I love my bird of paradise mugs, but these look much more updated and will go great once we finishing the painting of the cabinets.  Tony actually hung a separate board under the cabinet so that the screws for the hooks wouldn’t go all the way through.  He also had to slightly open up the cup hooks, as the mug handles were a bit wider than standard ones.  All in all I think they look great and will be awesome in the new kitchen too!

I know I said that I would be starting to work on the cabinet painting last week, but I got a bit lazy.  I really am going to work on it this week, so check back for updates and tips on the cabinet painting!
