I love lighting up candles and tea lights at wintertime and that’s why we always have a matchbox next to the candles. But isn’t the matchbox just so ugly? I know I’m exposing my craziness here, but it really did bother me. So time for a quick matchbox makeover!

I love white walls, but the current set-up where our TV screen is on a white wall, just doesn’t work. The TV jumps out and becomes the focal point of the wall, and let’s face it, the screen really isn’t much to look at.  As a result, that side of the room just looks a bit empty and boring. So something needs to be done.

My husband loves tea. He REALLY loves it. Which means that he drinks a lot of tea during the day. The problem is that my beautiful, white kitchen surface doesn’t love tea at all.   In order to protect the kitchen surface I thought it would be a good idea to have a small tray where hubby can put his cup when making his tea. But not just a tray, but something that looks nice as well, as it will need to become a more or less permanent feature on our kitchen top.
