ORC – Week 5 – A Reorganized Kitchen

I missed week 4 so this should include two weeks of work, but I haven’t done much at all!  I’m such a last-minute person.  I can’t even remember why I didn’t post anything last week.  I’ve been so busy and so scatter-brained lately.  The camera charger is missing again and I now have a laptop without a camera.  I’ve never taken pictures with a cellphone.  I don’t even have a cellphone.  I’m technologically resistant.  I’m surprised I even have a blog.

I finally bought some organizers!  I got a rack for pots and pans lids.  I also got two containers to put in my big bottom drawer to the left of the sink cabinet.  Stuff just gets thrown in there and I have to root through there to find anything.  So this should help.  I also bought a little candle at Dollar General.  I really don’t know how this will help me get organized, but I liked this little candle!

I got my organizing stuff at Walmart.

the original cabinet

I need to start working on organizing this old cabinet.  I want to put my Fiesta ware and Pfaltzgraff dishes (these are pastel colors) in here AND my teapot collection.  The curtains are hiding a bunch of cookbooks and some dishes and other stuff that’s pretty disorganized.  I want to get this (re)organized so everything will look really nice without the lace panels!

A beagle and some blinds

Our camera broke so I can’t show you any pictures of the new blinds, but I can show you a picture of our beagle! Our roller shades weren’t rolling so well anymore so we replaced them with wood blinds. I have a before picture of one window with the roller shade and the lace curtain. I would have had more before pictures, but my husband surprised me! On his day off last week, he hung up all six blinds in our parlor. (I don’t do windows, and we have a lot!) Then he hung up the faux wood blind in the guest room!
