Just kitchen around.

Just kitchen around.

Remember when I used to have a nice little list of blogs I like to read called “Inspiration” over there on my sidebar –> ?  Well, when I switched over to WordPress, it disappeared.  And a lot of you were like “Hey, where’d that go?  I liked that thing!”  And I was like, “I know!  Sorry!  I’m trying to figure it out!” And then about a year went by, and you probably forgot about it.  But one day I had almost 30 glorious minutes of semi-uninterrupted thinkin’ time, and I figured out how to put it back.  And that day was today!  So, there it is, my blogroll of blogs I like to read, over there on the right.  It’s not finished yet; I still need to add more, so let me know if I’ve left anything out, and please feel free to alert me to any other awesome blogs we should all be reading too.

There are other fun things you can do on my sidebar, like hang out with me on Facebook or follow me on Pinterest.  You can also follow me on Instagram too!  That would be great if you wanted to do that!  Then we’d be like real-life besties. (You can also follow me on Twitter, but I honestly forget that it even exists for months at at time).  So yeah. Cool beans.

And now, an easy-on-the-eyes and even easier-on-the-wallet kitchen makeover from Better After reader Ashley.  She and her husband recently bought a house with a kitchen that had lots of room.  For improvement!  It actually was very small. But, the great thing about a small room is that even a small budget can go far!  Check out everything they managed to do with just $250!  The cabinets are the same, they just added decorative moulding around the edges.  Great job!
