NEED STAGING OR DECORATING HELP?

KEEP THE FRESH IDEAS COMING TO YOU!

An alternative to pull out trash cans…

Nope, it’s not a pretty faux finish or a lovely piece of furniture…no friends, today I dealt with our pantry and trash cans. Every month when I clean out our pantry I dread it. I swear up and down that I’m going to build a new system with pullout trash cans and lots of functional space. While it’s a lovely thought, there are so many projects that are on my list that are WAY more fun, so it’s been pushed to the back of my mind and will likely stay there for a while. In the meantime though, this is what I’m dealing with…certainly not the smallest pantry around, but it just isn’t great with the trash cans taking up the tiny standing space. When we built our home, we considered putting the trash and recycling in one of those pull outs that’s housed inside the cabinets, but with our family of 7, I’d be emptying those itty bitty cans 10 times a day. I’m not really a fan of having the cans out in the open, so the they’ve resided in the pantry.

Take a look at our 1 minute pantry modification! We literally yanked the bottom shelf out and slid the trash and recycling cans right into place. I can actually walk in the pantry now! We’ve been here for just over 2 years and I can’t believe I didn’t think to do this sooner! Can I get an amen for good ideas that are free and functional!!?

    You came up with a good idea anything. I have been trying to come up with ideas on how to keep ahead of the recycling. Thankfully it isn’t required anymore that we separate the cans, bottles, plastic, paper, etc., etc., etc..

I was selling my townhome that actually sold in less than 2 weeks, and I really think with Dorrie helping me stage it made such a big difference! She came in and helped me so much, just when you think your house is not cluttered or everything is perfect it’s not, then someone like dorrie comes in and really has the knowledge to help you out, answer questions, stage it to look so beautiful, great with colors, furniture, you name it! I wish I could take her to Charlotre with me to stage my next home. Thank you so much for sending her my way! She is definitely amazing at her job!

Everyone that toured our house complemented the decor. Our house was warm and bright and I owe the welcoming and offers to Dorrie’s expertise. She was kind in recommending what belongings worked best for staging and made realistic suggestions for purchasing props or minimal repairs and painting. She was accessible for my questions even down to the final hours. I completely recommend Simple Southern Charm for your home decorating and staging.
