We use what we can… The apartment continued

Our apartment here on Isla is becoming homier everyday.

I found these dish towels or whatever they are at Mirita’s market and thought that they would make good kitchen curtains. With a little fishing line and duct tape we now have curtains that match the hot pad that we have our glasses sitting on. Notice they also coordinate well with the dishes.

We needed a strainer for the kitchen sink but forgot to look when we were in Cancun. I found this little strainer also at Mirtita’s and it will work  for now until we can find a real  plastic sink strainer.

The stool that the water jug is sitting on was found under the stairs. It really needs to be painted and the legs shortened but hey it was free. Denise was so excited that she found it.

Denise found some nice 12×12 tiles on the roof and brought a few down for us to use on the top of the plastic storage bins in the kitchen. They make it easier to set something on top of. Two of the tiles are under the little stove on the wooden chair for safety.

We got rid of the futon. Our neighbor Vinnie bought it. We have the single bed to fix up for a day bed. Friends loaned us another Sol plastic chair and a wooden rocker

Yep, it’s all coming together nicely!
