Since I'm feeling a bit better I thought I should actually start cleaning my house again! So I decided to tackle the kitchen in two parts - today and tomorrow. There was a time when I would have worked like a dervish and cleaned the kitchen from top to bottom in a day. But I've realized I don't really need to do that!
Today I cleaned my upper cabinets with white vinegar, a squirt of dishwashing liquid and hot water. I have painted cabinets so I can't use anything too abrasive anyway and those take care of the grease and the spaghetti sauce splatters from the other night (don't' ya hate when that happens).
I made these labels last year for some of my spices that are around the microwave. I covered them with clear packing tape which made it really easy to clean them today. I think I'll make new labels (add that to my mile long Projects List).
I decided to change out this picture behind my sink. If you don't have a window over your sink like me - hang some art work to give yourself something nice to look at while doing the dishes!
This is better don't you think? I found that tray at my favorite store The Classy Flea a few months ago and I knew it would be perfect in my kitchen!
I love my deep sink and gooseneck faucet!
See how it ties into my checkerboard floor - some things were just meant to be!
I took all of my soup tureens down off the top of the cabinets and boy do they need cleaning! A few have cobwebs on them! So I just have to go wash those now and put them back and I'm done for the day.Now tomorrow I have to do the other side of my kitchen and I want to change my bulletin board around a bit. I need to wash the lower cabinets and I need to scrub my kitchen floor (finally!). So I'll post the rest of the kitchen tomorrow (this is great motivation)!
