Kitchen Small Space Solution: Pegboard

As soon as I get around to taking and posting pictures of my apartment, you'll see that I have an itsy-bitsy kitchen. Sometimes I just sit and stare at it---brainstorming all the storage solutions I've seen on the internet, pondering how I can unleash my creative genius and create a magical place to cook.

I've come to the conclusion that I want some pegboard.

Pegboard just seems ideal. I can paint it a bright, pretty color. I can free up drawer space. I can feel organized. Handy tools will be right within reach. And it will add visual interest.

I think I may head off to Lowe's soonly...

How do you feel about pegboard?

Not only is it cute and functional, if you watch "Julie & Julia"... Julia Child's WHOLE KITCHEN was pegboard walls. It's all in the Smithsonian or something now.

In case you needed yet another reason to go with the pegboard in the kitchen, haha!

That looks awesome. I hate having to dig through pots and pans, and this seems like the perfect solution.

pegboard worked really well in my closet. we just moved into a 106 year old house and the closets are tiny! mine is only just as deep as a pair of my shoes, so of course the door won't even close if i put a hanger in there. i decided to use pegboard and hang my clothes from the easily movable hooks. its still a little tight but it beats having to fold everything and stash it in trunks, shelves and drawers!


DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.
