One Flourishing, Frugal and Fun Family!

One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

Recycle Project

I was gifted a few used kitchen cabinets from my younger brother.  I painted them, and they are now installed in my utility room.  They now have a new life.



Before
 
That bag is my kids way of making a place to put cans.  Those are in the garage now.



I painted all the cupboards with leftover paint from the kitchen cupboards.  


After

This has been a blessing for storage and organization.  That's our water softener underneath, and although you can't see it, the well pump is under it too.  Yes, the folks who added this room on years ago, built it over the well.

LOL I thought it was a toilet in your garage. Be funny if the door went up when someone was doing their biz. Seriously you can never have too much storage says the woman living in a house with 2 closets total.
