We did some purging.
Who needs this many wooden spoons?!
Or this many spatulas?
(construction dirt, not just filthy utensils).
In the kitchen work this weekend we realized the newly painted drawers has been tagged.
It definitely wasn't me who let that child have a pen.
Nothing a little Mr. Clean Magic Eraser couldn't handle.
Our new coffee station:
(cute retro napkin holder from etsy).
I used the marble cutting board as a counter protector - I'm still so paranoid about water damage on our butcher block counters even with 256 coats of Waterlox.
How great is our deep undermount sink? Full of dishes, but 10" deep and you can only see one peeping out :)
A new smaller microwave is coming next week - but so far these shelves are amazing.
(I didn't think having the fruit that low would be a problem, but this morning I woke up to tiny bites out of every apple). Thinking of turning that shelf into a stovetop and sink for Little T.
The big garbage can is now for recycling...and we installed a simple human under cabinet trash bin for compost and garbage. WAY better.
We took the door off the pantry to shave the bottom off (in our year here, we've only been able to open it 6 inches since the floor is uneven).
Bubbs quickly built me some extra shelves and our pots and pans are easily accessible, easy to put away and take out! This pantry has never been well used (we tried food at one point, then dishes, and I think this is definitely the best way to use it.
The plan is to paint the inside at some point - maybe white, but maybe a surprise bright color...my favorite benjamin moore juniper - maybe...
Our fish - they float upside down.
Apparently it is called swim bladder (gas) and I'm supposed to feed them peas.
