My hubby brought some children's books he had collected over the years up from storage. And put them on the.kitchen.counter.
And they stayed there for like a week.
After contemplating putting them in the craft room/office, I decided if we wanted access to them, I'd better not.
I had considered moving the video game stuff on this book case:
(You can see the organization inside those boxes here)
into the drawer under the tv, (currently just a bunch of junk)
The boxes they were in looked nice on the shelf, it seemed like a shame to put them in a drawer, I decided though, that I needed to get the books off my counter, and under the TV was a logical place for the games and accesories.
I emptied the drawer, the junk was relocated (mostly to the junk drawer below it)
and because they fit and needed a new home, Ellie's baby DVDs.
The books moved to the newfound space on the book shelf. Also I found that wooden picture frame on the shelf from our wedding (in October) and put a picture in it (was also on that shelf)
and my counter was clean! (for the time being anyway)
some other books moved off of a dresser in the bedroom to this shelf too, opening up space for some items that had been just floating.
I have missed blogging and have been working in the craft room, but havent been taking pics (bad blogger! shame on me!) but I intend on posting some updated pics soon!
