Things are getting very nice in our kitchen after all the chaos. There's still some chores to do: repairs to a hole in the wall next to the plumbing, more baseboards to cut, and we still have holes to drill for pipes. Also we need to create a shelf to go over the stove that the fan will attach to. But... all the cabinets are up, with their doors and hardware attached!
Perfect Housewife. It's on BBC Canada, my favourite channel. And I've been in a bit of an organization frenzy. I've used some of her ideas, and some of my own, but the main thing is that we have time now before the countertop arrives and I've been sorting out all the kitchen things so that they're grouped together in a way/place that makes sense. For example, all the baking supplies are on one shelf over the countertop which is next to the stove.
I used to have all my plastic containers in one big bin. But now I've stacked each by size and they sit on their matching lids, also stacked. It's a good use of space and you don't have to go hunting for a lid to match the container you want.
After all the chaos, our kitchen is now actually better organized than before we started and it's not even finished. Which makes me very happy.
p.s. I also post on our Illustration for Kids blog, this post is about my art desk organization!
