Tis the season!
One of the first areas I streamlined recently was this bar area in my kitchen. I've been using this desk in my kitchen as a bar for sometime now. I still don't have that wine cooler underneath yet but I'm still hopeful. I've just got to get the Mr. on board with the logistics of that part. LOL! Anyway, this area had gotten a bit cluttered so I changed up a few things.
First thing I did was moved the big wine crate I had hear and replaced it with the slab of granite that I've had sitting under my utensils in the kitchen. It's a much cleaner look to me.
Second thing I did was remove the red zinfandel sign and added my new chalkboard tray. I've had the tray for a while now but finally bought some chalkboard paint and converted it. Oldest blog trick in the book I know, but hey it looks great and will be a wonderful spot to leave messages for family and friends when entertaining and all year long.
And last but not least one of the biggest improvements was simply changing out my wine goblets to ones that all matched. I previously had a mixture of some of my favorite glasses but the mix of colors,styles and sizes was a bit junky looking. Now everything is very streamlined and I even managed to cover up two more outlets behind the tray and slate in the process.
So there's my latest makeover and cleanup. Just one more step towards making the holidays merry and bright! What about you? What are your preparing for the holidays?
