I can tell that a Bonus Cleaning post once a week is going to really help my house. Today’s project was something that is right in our face every day and now looks so good that it makes me want to keep everything around it looking nicer too. Funny how that works!
This hutch is right next to our kitchen table and has become a big dumping ground for craft items, markers, etc. Here is the ugly before picture.
Yes, it is just a wee bit out of control!
I decided to jump in with the items I immediately knew belonged somewhere else. The tissue box went back to the bathroom and the small buckets went to our craft closet (that needs its own post at a much later date).
Then I was looking at 4 pencil boxes. Do I really need 2 boxes full of crayons? No!
Lots of trash and construction paper was next on the list. Paper went to the craft closet and then notice the big Napa coffee table book. It was gifted to us several years ago. I thought we would love it because we are planning a trip to Napa hopefully next year but we haven’t really looked at it, so it is now in the donation pile I am planning to take to Goodwill.
Yuck, the aftermath is not pretty. I cleaned this off really good and…
The beautiful result! Ahh….makes my kitchen feel and look great! Why can’t I keep on top of these things? How do you keep up with your kids crafts?
