I am in the middle of "worse before it gets better" stage as we speak. There are a couple of areas that are more organized:
I moved this shelf from the laundry/pantry and put it in the corner of the kitchen. Yes, I want my kitchen to be pretty, but I also need it to be functional. This is the happy medium and you can't see it until you get in the kitchen. I used pretty contact paper, that I already had, to make the boxes prettier. It makes me much happier than when I had the dry sink in this spot (it is now in the school room), that was always overflowing. If I ever finish painting this room I will post a picture of it. Aaron and Jake picked out the color and although I like it...I don't love it-which is probably why I never have come back to finish painting it. I am going to take pictures of each room in the house and then come back and take more pictures of them when they are done.
