Why yes, that title is on purpose.
I am having insane nesting urges right now. This did not really happen with my first pregnancy. I can remember maybe two times in the 3rd trimester? But with this baby, oh man, I want to turn the house upside down and completely reorganize the entire place! Husband and I have been talking about a couple of projects and are finally starting to make them into a reality.
And I am finally starting to use my Pinterest account. Amen.
The first was under the bathroom sink. The reason this post is not titled “Before and After” is because I do not have a “before” picture of this space. It was too embarrassing. Know what I mean?
Therefore, I give you The After:
That’s about all the storage space we have in our bathroom. The two small drawers on either side up top used to exist – the rails are there – but for reasons unknown the previous owners took the drawers out and nailed the fronts down. Don’t ask me why. But it’s a pain.
Anyway. I did that all by my little ol’ lonesome yesterday while Kiddo napped. Took all of about 30 minutes. I threw away a huge bag of empty bottles and ancient, now-gross things we’ll never use. The rest fit neatly into the plastic drawers or the two cute bins, with boxes of *ahem* my stuff lined up in the space between. Ahhhh. So much better!
Now, I give you The Before of the next project on my list:
This is our spices/oils/vinegar/various stuff cabinet. As you can see, it’s not terribly well organized. And it’s not the best use of space. We have a hard time knowing exactly what we have in there, and finding it. We’ve purchase duplicates before because we didn’t know we already had an item we needed for a recipe.
This is going to get fixed. Soon.
