Exposed Kitchen Shelves

I am seriously considering removing the wall units in our kitchen and replacing them with open shelves. I have visions of beautiful crockery, colour co-ordinated and organised along the shelves but in reality it could just be a mis-matched, cluttered, unorganised mess, so its a real risk! On the rare occasion that my Partner does the washing up, he puts all the glasses/cups back in the cupboard in no order whatsoever, which is fine(ish) when you shut the door on them, but if we had shelves would I just be forever rearranging them? Not to mention the extra cleaning, although if we fill it with everyday items then they shouldn't be sat there long enough to gather dust.

So, I have been looking for inspiration and have put together a Pinterest board before I take the plunge! Here are a few of my favourites:

A second-hand shopping spree

A child free trip into town (or anywhere) is such a rare treat that I have to spend the time wisely. So, yesterday I had a leisurely stroll into town in the lovely Autumn sunshine and had a really refreshing afternoon shopping and then met some friends for a coffee - should I feel guilty for enjoying child free time so much???

Goodbye Ikea......

Rather than de-cluttering our living room, we have been de-Ikea-ering!!

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Ikea! But there is a limit and our living room was full of it and looked like everybody elses living room and we want something more individual and personal to us.

Knit, Stitch & Bitch !

Once a fortnight, my Sister and I go to a 'knit, stitch & bitch' group at our local pub. It started off with just five regular members but has recently started to grow, which is great as it widens the skills available for sharing.

Each time, we try to run a workshop so we can learn different skills from each other. So far, we have done cushion making, bunting making, felt christmas decorations and knitting.
