ORC – Week 1 – A (Re!)organized Kitchen

I have decided to (re)organize my kitchen.  I really want to make better use of my space so I can clear off my countertops.  I want to re-decorate my hearth and brick wall.  I also want to take the lace curtains off the doors of the original (1889) built-in cabinet and get my husband to help me with the inside.  There is contact paper stuck on the shelves and there are gaps in the back of the cabinet.

Here are some before pictures of the inside of my cabinets.  These are supposed to be bad, right?!!  That way the after pictures look even better!!

Whoops!!  The brick wall and hearth, and the built-in cabinet are first in the line-up!

I like roosters and strawberries and RED!
My husband is the one who loves coffee. I don’t even like the stuff! His mother-in-law got him the sign.
More roosters and more strawberries!

top shelf of pots and pans cabinet
bottom shelf of pots and pans (or lids!) cabinet
The microwave cabinet has a shelf below for the microwave that is no longer there! The old microwave broke and the new microwave was too big.
the glass cabinet
The spices and teas cabinet looks blurry. I probably did, too! I was a little tired.
