Pantry Redo!

Michael and I finally got around to tackling our pantry this weekend. It's a great space, but it was pretty bad on the inside. There were wire shelves (WHY does anyone install these?), nasty scratched up white walls, etc. We took down the old shelves, patched the holes, sanded, painted, and finally, built and installed shelves. Here are some pictures, if you're interested:

AFTER! The color looks terrible here, but it's a lovely light blueish grey:
And with all of our stuff organized:
I love it! And I especially love that everything doesn't fall over like it always did on those wire shelves. What do you think?

Beautiful Kate Spade

I am obsessed with Kate Spade's clothing line. It's absolutely gorgeous. Why do they have to be so dang expensive! I love how her pieces are feminine and stylish, but not too trendy. Here are some of my current favorites:
