You guys– small spaces are so easily forgotten about but they truly can make such a BIG difference! I think a small space is the perfect opportunity to use little treasured items that don’t have a home yet, but mean so much. That way, when someone takes the time to notice the sign on your coffee bar or the little plate hanging on an almost-hidden corner in your wall, you’ve got a story to tell– those items have a story to tell!
For me, I have 2 really special places that I love to take a little extra time on! One of those is actually right by my backdoor! It’s on a wall not many will see, but I see every single day– when I open the backdoor, when I walk to my breakfast table, even when I walk out of my bedroom in the morning!
Not only do I think this space is simply precious, and just brings a smile to my face, but the pieces remind me of certain things! That sweet little piece of brown transferware, I got that on my trip to Blanco! It’s the same story for the expandable coat rack! Yes, I do just love those items, or else I wouldn’t have picked them up from the thrift store– but now they can also serve as a reminder of my fun family trip to the sweet little Heaven that is Blanco, TX!
My second treasured space is my little coffee bar! I LOVE coffee, and it fuels my mornings– like literally cannot live without it! I’m sure you can relate! But when I go to grab that first sip of sunshine in the morning, it’s also really nice to see some things that make me happy!
I made this little wooden hanging piece by simply staining a small piece of wood and adding some cup hooks– it’s that easy! Now, I CAN use it for my favorite coffee mugs, and that may be what I do someday, but for now, I’m going to showcase this cute little sign… and a hidden little mug!
Isn’t this sign just precious!? If I had to answer though, I think I’ll take my tea first, ha!
To put it simply, these little spaces just make me happy! They are little corners of my home that the casual visitor may not notice, but they bring a smile to my face time and time again… and isn’t that what decorating is all about??
These small spaces have a BIG impact on my heart… and I think you’ll find they will for you too!
