Quick Fix: Above the Fridge!
This is one of my first DIY house related posts, inspired by my absolutely favorite bloggers, John and Sherry at Young House Love. If you haven’t checked this site out yet, go now! Then return afterward to this post to tell me what you thought 🙂
We have a remarkably small fridge for a house. I’m fairly sure it’s between 14 and 16 cubic feet on the inside. The fridge is only about 5 feet tall, and because of this, a lot of things get thrown on the top of it that shouldn’t. Today I cleaned off the top of the fridge and put my new entertaining items on the top for easy access (thanks to everyone who came to my bridal shower!). After I put everything up there, it just looked blah. I didn’t like that we could see everything!
I had used a waaaaaaaaay too long curtain previously, so I dug around the closet for it and the spring tension rod that went with it. We are lucky? to have a half wall next to the fridge to support this rod. I grabbed my showing machine, folded the fabric over, and one straight stitch later – voila!
Here is a picture of everything with the curtain pulled back. Notice the set of hooks on the left side? Those used to be next to the stove, but I moved them next to the fridge to hold our mop, broom, dustpan, and my new aprons (so I don’t ruin my good clothes while cooking, which happens a lot).
This is just the first of several projects to come! I’m sure after the wedding, we will have a lot more motivation to change things, kind of like the new entertaining pieces inspired me to do this project.
