oh man that was way more work than i really thought it would be!
So, i ran to the gym for about 35 minutes, then swung by the dollar store on my way home to pick up some supplies, and got to work! (didn't shower, or eat, or anything...i'm regretting that decision now that i'm done and have 30 minutes until i have to go pick up the lovely miss ang from work...hmm...)
okey dokey, here you go...hopefully you saw the disastrous "before" pictures i posted earlier today...here are the "after" pictures :)
|I made these super cool canning jar soap dispensers last night...ended up replacing the pumps with these metallic ones. love love LOVE them!|
|our recycling got put into a milk crate to keep it condensed, and to keep the cat from knocking it over. i organized the drawers of the island, and ended up collapsing one side so it takes up less space.|
|This is quite a bit better, but i still hate these darn shelves...canning jars can only fix so much!|
|Much less clutter. i moved our cookie jar to cover up the ugly phone jack in the wall.|
|close up of ang's counter :)|
|a temporary solution to the apron problem...a wreath hanger over the laundryroom door|
|i even made a divider to organize my caning lids by size (it was drivin me nuts!)|
|i really wish i could figure out how to hide all the stuff i store on top of the cupboards...|
|this weird shelf will get conquered another day. it has become a catch-all because it is the only shelf tall enough to stand up my bottles of oil and vinegar.|
|it looks so much better! i even found some stainless steel polish under the sink that i used to shine it up...i just need to find something to hang in that weird spot on the wall above it, and cover up those ugly holes.|
|this counter is so much better. i moved my green onions to a new container, and stuck them over here as well...|
impressed? i am! :) i'll conquer the cabinets next week as per the challenge(yikes!), but for now you'll have to excuse me. i need to peel myself off the couch and hop in the shower.
have a wonderful evening!
