I got the girls off to school (after we picked roses for their teachers), got Kole down for a nap, and decided my kitchen cupboards could use a little face lift. Rain always makes me want to turn on some music, organize my kitchen, and just enjoy the coziness of home.
First I tackled the bottom kitchen cupboards. These are all of the plastic bowls – the “safe zone” for my little one year old who loves to pull everything out.
Next I tackled my cupboard with all of the glass bowls. Here’s a “before” of this cupboard. Not awful, but definitely not as orderly as I like it to be.
Then I slowly made my way up to the top cupboards. I didn’t take a before of our plates and bowls, but it didn’t look too much different. This one is easy to maintain.
And the “after.” SOOO much better! Now I can easily get to my cleaning supplies and see what we are running low on. I also keep sunscreen in this cupboard because it is right by the back door – easy access when we are on our way out. My rarely used cook books are stored up high along with a rooster pitcher that was my Aunt Pat’s before she passed away a few years ago. I like that now I can see it and think of her every time I open this cupboard.
and then tackled the pots and pans. This cupboard is right below our homework drawer and was starting to become a catch all for bigger coloring books and art projects that were too big for the homework drawer AND the arts and crafts drawer. Probably a sign that we have way too much of this kind of stuff! This is the “before.”
