This week I have rearranged the front verandah to try to utilize space more efficiently, and to make it look tidier. Our house is relatively small for a family of five, and storage is always something I am organising and rearranging.
It began with Oliver's room, as I decluttered it on Thursday, in preparation for the goodies Christmas will bring. I was able to send many toys home with my sister for Zac.
Then I was on a roll and decided to move his furniture around, and eventually the wardrobe that was in his room went to the verandah, and is now a place to store some gardening bits and pieces, raincoats, and the tools I regularly use around the house.
The metal trunks that sit on the verandah, storing gum boots etc. were given a spruce up with some spray paint.
The little table I rescued from my parent-in-law's place was also given the spray paint treatment while I had it out.
As a result, everything is looking tidier, and I wont have to cringe when friends come to the door.
