First project of the New Year {complete}

Well, at least I can cross one thing off my home project list for 2013!  It's something small but something I've wanted to complete for a very long time; a gallery wall in our entry way.  I love the way it turned out and am so happy that we've finally displayed some family photos.

This picture is a little more accurate of how it looks on a day to day basis, jackets, vest, backpack ect.  Just tried to make it "pretty" for the first couple of shots :)

Owls - West Elm
Grapevine wreath - Michaels
Porcelain votives w/moss balls - Anthropologie {old}
Butterfly Picture - HomeGoods
Family photos but frames are from Ikea
Shelf w/ hooks - Ben built it from an old coffee table.  The coats hooks are from Ikea.

how do you accessorize {your fridge}

This may sound silly but having a clean, well organized refrigerator may actually help you eat healthier.   Categorizing and containing healthy snacks front and center, in an appealing way, will automatically have you reaching for those blueberries or raspberries instead of the potato chips in the pantry.  It's a well documented fact that you eat with your eyes first so why not add some of these adorable accessories to keep you on track.

Sur la table {on sale}
Anthropologie - these are a little bit pricier but so darn cute!

Bargain from Crate & Barrel at $6.95
Also $6.95 from Crate & Barrel

Ceramic egg crate from Anthropoloige 

These colanders are what I'm currently using.  They were purchased at World Market last year.

 I plan on upgrading to some ceramic berry baskets as soon as I can decide on a color

Now isn't this more appealing?  I feel lighter already.
