Today, I surface cleaned the bedrooms. Can your house be too clean? Maybe that is why I’m redecorating and throwing out things. Today, I purchased handles for my kitchen cabinets and installed half of them. Here is a photo of my cabinets before changing the door pulls…
Where was I? Here. This is me grinding dirt into oblivion following the 30 minutes a day schedule. Over the weekend, I stayed on track even when I went offline from writing. My cleaning on Sunday compelled me to start renovating my kitchen. Looking through Kitchen designs and Kitchen remodels on Pinterest I realised I needed to do something with the cabinets.
First, I shouldn’t have anything on top of my cabinets. I think the designer’s assumption is that you are putting decorations on top of your cabinets but I was using the tops of my cabinets as additional storage space for things with no permanent home… like land of broken toys. The top of my cabinets were for all those things I didn’t really need but felt like I shouldn’t throw away. On Sunday, I took everything off the tops of my cabinets and found a new home for those items inside of the cabinets or in the trash bin. It felt good to tackle this cleaning/sorting job so I decided to keep going.
I took off the trim on the cabinets, removed the door pulls, and painted the kitchen wall a shade of brown. Removing the trim and painting the walls took about 3 hours. Finding a new home for all the stuff on top of my cabinets took another 2 hours. Today’s trip to the recycle center to drop off the trim and old light fixtures from underneath the cabinets took 35 minutes.
This was all in addition to my 30 minute daily clean.
I will keep you posted with the kitchen remodel inspired by the cleaning schedule. Be careful. Cleaning may inspire you to remodel your house too.
