There are never
too many ideas and Do-It-Yourself tricks to make your kitchen look and feel warm
and inviting. Have you ever lost your keys, misplaced those bills or even lost
those grocery lists you attempted at keeping up with during the week? The usual
kitchen seems to always consume important items and somehow they probably get
lost within the garbage disposal.
A large mounted chalkboard
mail organizer with wall pockets for bills/papers and hooks for keys. Grocery
lists now become fun for kids when they are able to write on the chalkboard
when their favorite snacks are out. I don’t know
anyone who cooks without some sort of spice. So next up on our list is the
magnificent magnetic spice rack. Take baby food jars and attach a magnet to the
lid to keep on the refrigerator. Are your canned
goods lost in a shuffle? If you're tired of toppling towers of cans in the
pantry, try taking an old cardboard soda box, coat it in Modge Podge, and then
cover it with decorative paper. Cut an opening in the back to restock cans so
the older ones rotate to the front. If you’re looking
for a retro spin on place settings, this will instantly jazz up a birthday
party or a fun dinner at home. Just take an assortment of old vinyl records
(you can pick up a variety for a dime at a flea market) and set them as place
mats or chargers for serving dishes. Or as an alternative, use the album
jackets instead. Now that isn’t
so hard! Don’t be afraid to go out in your garage and keep trying to make that
cool new idea that’s still floating around in your head.

Access: A Key Component in Getting Your House SOLD!So, you’ve decide
"The service I received from Zack was exceptional! I could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide me through the process of moving to a city I didn't know. Zack's experience and patience served me well. His local market knowledge is invaluable and his relationships in the community allowed me to identify my new home before it was on the market. Zack is a true professional and in a class by himself.
Also, I wanted to thank Zack for his assistance with the remodel of the house. His wealth of contacts made for a quick and rather painless renovation.
