I've spent the last couple of days painting the insides of cupboards and closets in my new place. At the Swedish cottage, there were no hidden spaces to dump and hide all my clutter so I was forced to make every corner pretty and only hold on to what I needed. Now that I'm home, I'd love to continue this habit.
These old apartments tend to be filled with dark, dusty corners which gives me a bit of OCD. Yesterday, I took a paintbrush to the insides of my kitchen cupboards, which were dark wood. My motivation was this photograph from Domino magazine (sorry for the lackluster snapshot). It'd be lovely to have my cupboards look half as charming as this photo. Who knows how long I'd be able to keep them that way, but I might as well try, right? I am currently waiting for a second coat of paint to dry but the shelves look cleaner already!
