In my Kitchen Upgrade you can see that I used some old Biscotti and Pretzel containers to display and to keep my baking staples fresh. Below are JPGs you can dowload to resize and label your own containers. Enjoy!

The room which I put my computer in when I moved to my Kentucky Home had become a catch all. It was not good. Just see for yourself
Like I said… not good.
I had seen these very cool damask rugs at Elmer’s (my new favorite bargain store), for about 2 months and Friday March 13th I finally broke down and bought the only two rugs they had. Took a snip of the fibers to Lowes and bought some New Avocado paint. That Friday night I spent prepping the room.
Then I painted the walls. I enlisted some help from some friends to get all of the furniture out of the room so I could scrub the rugs before I rolled out the new rugs. When the floors were clean it was time to see if the rugs would look good in this crazy avocado green room.
I was starting to like it.
Now I needed to put my computer and stuff back in the room. Before I did I took advantage of some 70 degree March afternoons to spray paint some bookshelves an espresso brown color.
I found the curtain fabric at JoAnne; it was the perfect shade of green and had a brown background. The curtain rod cost $2 from Elmer’s (I did some slight repair to glue a knob on. My Brother, Bryce helped me cut the curtain rod so I could fit it on the wall.
I lucked out that Brandon’s favorite recliner is a chocolate color and my office chair is brown. The filing cabinet i covered with the curtain fabric because I hope to upgrade from the cinchy filing cabinet soon.
