Tackle It Tuesday: Kitchen Counter

The Project: The kitchen counter.
Objective: To clean up area where cookbooks are so it doesn't waste so much of my counter area.

Method:

1. Empty fruit basket, remove wire handles, paint it white, put in bathroom.

2. Organize printed-out recipes, flip through cooking magazines pulling out recipes to keep and tossing magazine.

3. Hang pot holders (or whatever those mittens are called) on wall.

4. Put food items away.

Finished Project:

Great idea for the basket! I noticed that aside from the name we also have a 1 yr old and baby on the way in common! I love you're resource links and will definitely be back to check them out some more.

The new look for the basket is great and the bathroom zone looks nice but your kitchen corner is fantastic in the after shot! Way to go. Amazing how just moving a few things and taking advantage of hanging wall space makes such a huge difference. I'm motivated now to look at some of my hot spots with new eyes.
