While you are looking for ways to express yourself in your home, don’t forget about the kitchen!
The intention of this photo was to focus on my Christmas table setting. But it also shows my undecorated kitchen, kinda bland and boring. From this view you see nothing of my personality.
Recently my husband offered me the chance to get some new kitchen appliances and linens. Now, he screwed the hooks in but you could easily use Command Hooks instead. The small hooks close to the trim are used to hold lights during the Christmas holiday season.
In search of more room in our house, my husband built me a pegboard to hang my pots on. A little bit of painting and Ta-Da!
The blue pans are a recent addition since I love the color blue.
This kitchen island was purchased from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore shop. Again, a little bit of painting and things are looking much brighter!
My last decorating change was colorful coffee mugs. All of which I found at Amazon.
Previously I’ve shown you how you can decorate your small home with simple things such as changing your dining table centerpieces. It can make a big difference in how your house/apartment looks.
But what about the outside of your home? I live in a single wide trailer in Florida so I have a small amount of space. It still takes some planning to change the looks outside.
Decorating your mailbox is one easy improvement you can make. The covers are relatively inexpensive and easy to use. If your mailbox is metal, there are magnets on the edge of the cover that hold it in place. If it’s plastic, there are small holes punched along the edge that you can use zip ties to secure it with.
As veterans, we always have an American flag out, but on the other side is a different story. Here I use large garden flags. I tend to change these with the seasons!
I have a number of the smaller flags that I use. Here are the three that I have out right now. The one on the left is positioned so that when I am backing in, I can use it as a guide for how far over I should be. If I’m doing it right, that flag will be just to the right of my car fender.
You can only go so far with flower pots so try adding colorful solar lights to add interest to your space.
Don’t forget the special appeal of garden statues! These come in all sizes and can also be changed to reflect the seasons.
That’s all I have for you now. Stick around to see what else I can find to decorate my space!
Special Decorations from Nature!
Friends of ours who live in a Double-Wide trailer choose to decorate their place by adding swags over the outside doorway. Imagine the surprise when they discovered the a pair of doves made a nest in the greenery and raised a family!
