A New Bathroom Shelf & Some Kitchen Redecorating

The hubby and I are so lucky to work for a University and get almost two weeks off at Christmas!! Two weeks means lots of time for small house projects! So..come take a look at what we've been up to...

First the bathroom. We only have one bathroom, which is fine for just the two of us, but there is really no storage space aside from the small hall closet we have. So, I am always trying to find ways to organize and make the most of the space!

So, I had Derrick help me build and hang this shelf at the top of the bathroom! Love all the extra storage it gives and love the wood crates to hold things we don't use very often. 

Next the kitchen! I decided to repaint one of the shelves. Here it is before blue...

And now white. 

Love these wood crates I picked up at a yard sale for $1.00 each! They make great shelves!

Filled some old jars with cupcake liners and cookie cutters. My favorite however, are the vintage brown & aqua handled cookie cutters displayed on the shelf!

Decorated the rest of the shelf with some vintage items found at a local resale store.

Last, I picked up this vintage kitchen scale at an antique store with some Christmas money!!  LOVE!

Did you get any house projects done over the holidays?
