Removing A Cluttered Kitchen Storage Shelf To Make A New Seating Area

Removing A Cluttered Kitchen Storage Shelf To Make A New Seating Area

vintage modern living room design on astral riles blog 25 I recently made some updates to my kitchen, of which included a bit of de-cluttering. (You can see more pics of the kitchen by checking out my home tour post.) This is the storage shelf that WAS in the kitchen. At first it started off with just a few things on it and then it just snowballed and turned into and "I'm just gonna sit EVERYTHING I can on it" type of shelf. Oh, and there was a hole in the wall that got patched up about 2 years ago and I was too lazy to touch up the paint. SMH

BEFORE

3 1 2 4 »»»»SUBSCRIBE TO MY BLOG«««« [mc4wp_form] I painted this kitchen over 5 years ago and luckily, I still remembered the color paint that I used. ("Lemon Butter" by Valspar) I decided that should be another seating area. Something less formal than sitting at the dining table. Just so happens that I found these adorable bar stools at TJ Maxx. They worked perfectly in the space.

Love the update. But I gotta ask… Where did all the stuff go???

Hey! Thanks.
I rearranged some of my cabinets, plus decluttered my pantry too. So I just moved those items somewhere else and tossed what I didn’t need. The actual shelf itself was taken outside in the backyard to use as a “potting” station for my plants. :)

What a huge improvement! Although, it is refreshing to see a real, honest before pic. This space feels so much lighter now and helps to frame your living room. Also, kudos on the Apt. Therapy article!
