Project Distraction

Please tell me I am not the only person that takes on a project when my house is totally trashed. I am dubbing it "project distraction" because it is totally my excuse not to have to do the laundry/clean the bathroom/vacuum, etc.

This project distraction involved me deciding to make a home for all (not really all...we have way too much) our coffee stuff. My kitchen and its lack of organization has been one of the things I don't like about my house. One of the many reasons I struggle with my kitchen is there is only one set of outlets on the counter...and next to the sink, for that matter.

We have this weird little counter between the stove and refrigerator that has always had a special place in my heart. Why, you ask? Because, like I said, it is a weird little counter and because of it's odd size and location things never seem to get dumped on it, so it stays clean. But it has no outlets, so is kind of useless to me. But don't you worry, I came up with a solution!

I plugged a power strip in behind the refrigerator and brought it over to the counter. Once I set all most of our coffee paraphernalia on the counter, it became obvious I didn't have enough space. But I had an extra wall shelf left over from when I redid Connor's room. And it's obviously the little things in life that matter because every time I look at this little coffee counter now, it makes me smile.

And because I know you totally wanted to know, I got Ian the coffee sign and fancy canning jar grinder for our 10 year anniversary. Romantic, I know.

And out of total shame for the amount of coffee related products we own, I won't bother telling you what didn't fit on the's actually more than what did.
