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 .

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
