The last couple of weeks have felt super busy but I don’t feel like I have a lot to show for it. I did finish reading The Paris Wife. I really enjoyed it. I found myself “cheating” a bit by going to Wikipedia to see what would happen next. I should be reading I Don’t Know How She Does It for book club, but I can’t get excited about it, so I started reading The Unnamed instead. I’m only a couple of chapters in so I haven’t quite figured out the premise. I’m not sure how this one ended up on my list but we’ll see if I like it. I’ve also been reading Design*Sponge at Home. Design Sponge is one of my favorite blogs so I’ve been enjoying the book.
I spent most of my free time last weekend painting the mystery cabinet. I’m not sure I like how it turned out. I ended up using the Safety Red spray paint. I started with the Lobster Red and thought it was too orange. The Safety Red did look like an orangey red outside, but once I moved it inside it looks pretty red. I’m going to live with it for awhile and then decide what to do. I may end up going with white. I really want to do a fun color but it’s hard to get it right and I’m tired of painting it!
I did order a couple of accessories from the Container Store to go along with the cabinet. According to the dimensions this Rugby Stripe Bin will fit perfectly in the larger side of the cabinet. I got a file box to go on the other side. I used the cabinet to prepare an order for shipping earlier this week. It was great for that. The height is perfect. If I wasn’t using it for this, it would also work well as a small kitchen island.
I’ve kind of become obsessed with using the Fooducate App to check the healthiness of my food. Have you heard about this one? You use it to scan the barcodes on your food and then it will give you a grade. Unfortunately, my beloved Dr. Pepper got a “D”. Sadness. I wonder if Dublin Dr. Pepper gets a better grade. Most of what I’ve scanned get’s a “C”. My yogurt got an “A” and the Salsa Verde that I love from Target got a “B”. Have you found anything that gets an “F”?
