Our Little Kitchen Nook

I love a reading up on home decor and discovering new trends and DIY tips. I especially enjoy seeing how little changes and updates make a huge difference to a space and how it can literally make an impact in your life.

A little corner in our kitchen became such a waste of space up until recently. Kurt began working from the little table when lockdown first started and I started storing some of my candle making supplies in containers under the table. It literally became an eye-sore!

How We Started Recycling At Home In A Few Easy Steps

recycling at home

It’s been a few months since we started recycling at home. Yes, we are a bit delayed but better late than never, right?

I got some amazing tips from Melissa Louise ( see my previous post) which really helped me make the most out of the room. Although we re-used a number of hand-me-downs such as the cot, compactum and feeding chair from Alyssa’s nursery, it was really fun putting the room together and we are really happy with the end result.
