Have you ever felt paralyzed by Pinterest? Like you can’t possibly work on a project unless you know it would be as pin-worthy and beautiful as the pristine images we see on Pinterest every day?
As a blogger, this is ESPECIALLY bad. I see beautiful things from fellow bloggers all the time, and not to toot my own horn, but SOMETIMES those things might just be on my very own blog, made by me. But not always. And that’s where the problem lies.
This time I’m choosing to just do it and work with what I have.
Welcome to my pantry.
That’s because this is a pantry/closet/storage unit.
And it ain’t pretty.
Ideally I’d like our pantry to look like this:
But it doesn’t. And that’s totally ok. One day I will make this project a priority and one day it may be prettier, whiter, and with much nicer floors.
Until then, I’m going to be happy with a place to put all of our shoes, scarves, coats, water, canned goods, pasta, frames, brooms, paint, etc…
Oh, did I mention that there’s a magic light in there that turns on as soon as the door opens?
Honest to goodness.
Take joy in the little things, the small victories of organizing a space and keeping it that way.
Function beats beauty, as far as I am concerned in this case. So work with what you’ve got!
Am I right?
