Kitchen before and after with New Open Shelves in Kitchen, Snaps from the Messy Days and An Organized Wife

IMG_0549Howdie friends of the matter? Have we found ourselves some open shelf love, a lovely, organized kitchen, this lovely morning. It was death by the cleaning up but I managed to pull it off, alright.

Yay! Free from bending down in an obscene position everytime you want a bowl. Of course when people are around I am very oriental in my “taking out bowls” sitting…you know how it is right? Like you’d do when clad in a kimono. But rest of the time when no one is looking, I bang steel on steel and ceramic on ceramic to get out a handful of cooking utensils. Very bad phase, I must say.

IMG_0547By the way, do you believe that there is a day for everything?

On certain days you just feel like sleeping while on others you simply want to get things done. Yesterday was one of those days when I felt like getting things done. I woke up and my thoughts immediately steered towards the messy kitchen. Yikes. Cannot procrastinate anymore. Off I went to the market…

…And what started at 8:30 in the morning, after feeding the hubby and sending him to work, finished at 4:00 P.M straight but boy what a change. Happiness is an organized and clean kitchen.

All under 20$! Happiness x 2.


Behold the after…

And the before…

kitchen-beforeI kind of alligned everything and curtained it once- you can read about it here, but it eventually didn’t work out. The bowl-squats kept happening and utensils kept tumbling. Had to get a permanent solution.

Very happy with my new kitchen. Very! My husband’s been very worried about my organizing skills. Maybe finally he would agree that I am after all, an organized wife 😉

Have you been meaning to change anything lately? Would love to hear!
