My interior design skills are pretty much, nonexistent. I buy lovely works of art to hang on the walls and call it good. Every once in awhile, a wave of inspiration hits and I might do an ‘arrangement’ of things on a wall, but I wouldn’t call it creative by any means. I am happy if everything is somewhat balanced and hanging straight.
When we would PCS (that’s “move to a new house” for you civvies), the walls would be pert near blank for about a year, especially if there was new paint on the walls. I just don’t like putting nail holes in nice, smooth walls.
My big kitchen remodel is such an example of this, but The Hub and I changed that today. This is the cranny. I guess it’s a cranny….its definitely not a nook. You would think its tucked away under an obscure staircase because I’m not sure anyone in this house knows where it is, other than myself.
~Kiss The Cook ~ It took about 15 minutes to put that up there. It’s been in it’s box since mid-December. No…I don’t procrastinate….much.
You may also notice that I don’t do curtains. The little plaque in the ledge says “Rejoice in the Lord always” I need that reminder, especially when washing dishes or handling, ewww, raw chicken.
Now for the nook.
Yes, this is more nookish. My whiteboard weekly calendar is a wonderful little thing. One quick glance and I know what I’m doing and where I need to be that day. As you might guess, this nook is a clutter magnet, but it looked good today, so I took a picture.
I don’t know if this will always be a desk. Sometimes I think it would make a good place for the microwave, or some other kitchen gadget.
