Just a quick catch up. My news - I finally got a permanent bookkeeping position so I am out of retail! I have told my boss at the furniture shop I am happy to work casually because I want to keep the discount! But we will see what she says; she is being told to keep cutting hours, I think I got out at the right time.

I came across this photo and it reminded me of how I had wanted to do the same thing with my pantry door. You need to be an organised, tidy person to pull off this look! But it would so open up the kitchen - and would look fab lit up.

I bought this off Barnowl Primitives on etsy. It now has pride of place above my oven. This talented lady does lots of wonderful designs.

This is from the furniture shop and why I need to keep that discount! Would look great over the dining table!


  1. Congratulations on your position...Would be nice to keep the discount though! Love the beachy sign...I had a pantry door similar to the image in my previous house only I put wire (one cm square)in the frame and then put in a yellow ticking fabric to hide any mess. Wallpaper also looks good

  2. Hi Peta way to go with the new job.
    Love your Etsy purchase
    Have a great weekend

  3. Hi that idea of the pantry cupboard door...but wouldnt look any good in my kitchen...

    love that sign as shall have to check out that clever etsy lady..

    good luck with your new bookeeping job...omg..I failed accounting in my "summer school" after my law degree!!! I am hopeless!!
    (funny though my 21 yo son is in his final year of his accounting degree...didnt take after MOIS!!)...
