  1. A Los Gatos plumbing expert is a strategy to all of your plumbing Los
    Gatos problems. Flat paint is the best choice for hiding rough spots and surface imperfections, which makes it perfect for ceilings and walls.
    Toilet paper is among the most essential product because
    you are always going to need it and you use it all the time.

  2. If the sun’s natural rays are that harmful, what did people
    of long ago use as sun protection. As an avid tanner who has been on a seemingly
    life-long quest to find the perfect self tanner for my pale skin, I’m very pleased with Mystic Tan’s UV-free option to getting a real-looking tan. Don’t fight it, let God show you how it’s supposed to go.

  3. LOVE open shelving! It’s eye candy and keeps you organized at the same time. Nice post!

  4. Definitely loving the open shelves- I’m one that if I can’t SEE it, then I forget I have it. So having everything out & visible is perfect for me. I will definitely be putting some open shelving in my studio space.

  5. I love the open shelf look for everyone but me. Especially in the kitchen. It just looks like more to clean to me and another space for the kids to clutter.

  6. When we were repainting out cabinets i went without upper door for a while and semi liked the open concept. It was really nice to see where everything was and because you could see it, it was kind of easy to keep it tidy. BUT dust and grease became a factor over time. Plus the inevitable splashes, spills and explosions in a kitchen. It is easier to wipe down a cabinet door versus everything inside. I also think because its on display you can’t cram everything you need in a cabinet which is both good and bad.

  7. every time I look at open shelving I think man, these people must not have cats!! lol. My 3 kitties would have a field day with open shelves, so unfortunately none for me.

  8. Love the look! However, I am not sure about the dust factor. If some of your readers have a problem with this, I would like to know what they have to say about that. Thank you in advance.

  9. I usually like how they look in other people’s homes but I feel like I would go crazy if it was in my house where everyone could see the messy cupboards I hide behind the doors :)
