Making It Work

There are lots of things I love about my home, but this is not one of them. There is this weird entertainment/peninsula thing separating the kitchen and living spaces. The counter is way too high, really awkward place for a television, and I hate that you can see everything stored in the cupboards. Solution? Demolition, baby! Now, we're not ready to demo yet, so I need to figure out what to do with it in the meantime.

Our first week we moved in it was blanket and toy storage, along with various cords and electronic....stuff. Driving OCD Brittney insane a little? Yes.

Ahhhh.....this is the best I can do without replacing cabinet doors or just plain ripping this puppy out with my bare hands. The fabric and storage containers are from IKEA. I love IKEA so much that I am secretly cheering for the Swedish competitors in the Olympics. I cheer for the US too, I just don't get upset it the Swedes win a few.

The curtain is hung with a tension rod. The kids love playing in their "cave" and the best part is we can move the rod down halfway and have a wonderful stage for a puppet show or drive thru window whenever we please. This monstrosity in my living room is going to earn its keep at least.

Very nice. And yes, IKEA is awesome.
I like the idea of using it for a puppet theatre.
