Walk In Pantry

I guess it would always be a dream for every Mom out there to have a walk in pantry.  It's my ultimate dream actually.  I love to have a pantry area that's concealed and could not be readily seen from the kitchen view.  I also love the pantry area to have lots of rooms for storage, so that means lots and lots of shelves. :)

It would also be nice to make a contrast in color by having the door to the pantry painted with a bold color of green or orange. Well, that all depends on what is the existing color of your kitchen wall. 

Well, this is still a part of my bucket list and I'm just excited to try new ways to organize my kitchen. :)

Do It With Fabric

If you want to give your kitchen an instant make over, I mean "just for a change", you could very well do it with fabric.  Choose a pattern that complements the color of your kitchen.  You may also choose to repaint the inside of your open shelves.  This can give your kitchen an instant make over without being too harsh on your pocket.   Since it's summer, you could be a little bit more adventurous by choosing a color that could very well define nature like blue for water and green for outdoors.  During one of my shopping at a local home store, I also happen to see a kitchen sticker that could be stuck to your tiles to cover some worn out parts or to just simply add colors and design to your kitchen.  Honestly, since some parts of my kitchen tiles are already worn out, I am thinking of using it too.

Let's try to experiment this summer!

Repurposed Bedside Table

I just found this brilliant way of transforming a bedside table into a sink.  The top of the table can be covered with a counter top either tiles or granite and make it plumbing ready by removing the inner drawers so you could possibly install the piping and the faucet.  You can still make use f the underneath shelves as an additional storage for towels or other bathroom accessories.  You may even want to repaint the table to match the color of your bathroom tiles for a unified theme.

Multi Functional Bench

This multi functional bench installed beside your bedroom windows can give you an added seat while helping you organize things and cut on your clutter.  The incorporation of a fabric covered foam adds color to the bench while the uniformly colored storage boxes gives contrast to the overall set up and make the area appeared to be compact and less cluttered.

Colored storage boxes can match your curtains and gives you additional rooms to pull in your basic stuff and make these available at a glance.

The New Home of Ms. Kris Aquino Featured on Kris TV

This has been a long overdue post! I was supposed to have it published since last month but I can't really have the luxury of time to work on this.  I had the privilege to watch that episode on Kris TV where for the first time, the new home of Ms. Kris Aquino was shown on TV.  I remembered having published same article on my other blog but that was the previous house that Kris had for her and her two kids.

I was surprised upon seeing the latest house as this is quite far from the taste of Ms. Kris Aquino when it comes to house designs and color motif.  I used to see her on TV adoring colors!  I think she loves anything that's colorful and vibrant!  This was very evident on her last house.  She got that pink kitchen, purple and red living room and that striking yellow jeepney inspired bed for Josh.  A really colorful house!  It was artistically designed though and looking at the house would really give you a glimpse of Ms. Kris Aquino's vibrant and bubbly personality. Thus, it was surprising though that this time, in her new home, she used plain colors all over the areas and I find it simple but exudes with class and elegance.  Here are some of the photos that I got from watching that episode.  All photos courtesy of ABS-CBN Kris TV.

Her clothes and pants are neatly arranged and take note...color coding. :)

Kris bedroom, she got that favorite Bible verse displayed on the wall. 

As Kris is a devout Catholic, she can never live without the sacred images displayed on her house.

Inside Bimby's bedroom! Nice drum set, isn't it?

Kris own bathroom. Noticed that she now changed to plain white.  A good choice!

Inside Josh bedroom

There you go! This is just a sneak peek of Ms. Kris Aquino's newest home.  My favorite part of her house is her vertical garden where she has a collection of herbs and greens.  Unfortunately, I do not have a decent photo that could be posted here showing the beautiful vertical garden.  It has it's own water system, so it's really cool!

I really love her taste for home designs and even her home furnishings are really exceptional.  If you want to see more of her house, you can still catch that episode on Kris TV with her special guest, no other than her closest friend, Mr. Boy Abunda.

Tools Storage Corner

Eclectic Garage And Shed by Dallas Media & Bloggers The Cavender Diary

I was ecstatic when I see this photo!  It's been a long time problem for me on how I would be able to organize our home tools in just one area.  I guess you could imagine how difficult it is to look around the house whenever your handy man would ask for some specific tools that would be needed for simple repair works at home.  I would admit, that's been my problem ever since. Most of the time, I can't recall where did I keep the electrical tape, some nails, glues and screws.  It's all over the place.  We also have some left over electrical wires scattered everywhere in the house.  It's really a stressful situation when you find something but you can't locate it during the time that you needed t badly.  This is the reason why I became a big fan of home organization.  I think this storage shelves for tools is really cool.  It has a space for everything!  I would certainly include this on my long list of projects. :)
