The first thing I wanted to do was add some personality. The inside was still this bland cream color that used to be on all the trim and the doors. When we overhauled the kitchen, we had the entire interior of the house painted and now the walls are a light gray and the trim is a crisp white. Love.
So in a bold move on my part, I painted the inside of the upper cabinet in the same light gray as the walls. I did it during naptime and while it was a nice change, it didn't really do much.
I cleared out a bunch of old towels and sheets and redistributed what was left. The top shelf is for guest sheets and towels (making them difficult to reach is a trick to keep my family from using them!) The second shelf holds a basket of hand towels and rolled bath towels. The third shelf holds a basket of cleaning rags and four containers holding medicines.
I had two of these stackable containers from Target already so I picked up two more to reorganize our medicine cabinet into bins. I like that the lids stay on nice and tight. I put all the kids medicines into one bin so there's no mistaking what is theirs.
The lower cabinet stores the sheets for our bed, as well as extra linens that I stacked behind the more regularly-used sets. The beach/pool towels are stacked at the bottom. The bottom left shelf was left completely free to my shock and amazement so I added another bin that I'm saving for a specific purpose to be revealed later this month.
I'm so excited with how this turned out. It feels so clean and pretty!
