Kitchen Cupboard's Cleaned Out

As the rain started to fall down today it ended working outside. While unloading the dishwasher I decided to clean out this section of kitchen cupboard's where the dishes are kept.

I started to empty out the cupboard's deciding what I no longer wanted or needed. Leaving the door's open as I took thing's out & moved thing's around. I decided it was time to take the cupboard door's off. I have been wanting to do this for a long time.

I got these basket's last summer & had sewing supplies in them. I emptied the sewing supplies & filled them with my little jar's I put soup in & the medium jar's I make sweet tea in. This works well. It look's much neater & the jar's are safer. I put the mix & match dishes I have acquired over the year's in a box for now. Not sure if I will be dropping them off at goodwill or taking them to auction. It will depend on how much stuff I no longer want or need after cleaning out the other cupboard's & the bedroom closet's. I am in the mood to de-clutter. The pink wallpaper from 15 years ago must go. It was on sale really cheap when I moved in way back then. I have an idea to give it a more prim look.

I saved the end's of the pine panel's that I am covering the door's with in the hall. I think they will work well after they are cut to fit & painted then glued in the back of the cupboard. I need to get those door's done to see if I will have enough pine panel end's. I will no longer have to shut the cupboard door's after the family has been in them. I won't have to say shut the cupboard door's over & over. Best of all I can see my pretty yellow dishes. You all know how I fill about yellow in every room. It screams HAPPY to me. Add a little yellow to your life & see if it work's for you.

Blessing's Til Next Time!


  1. Feels great to finish a project doesn't it! What color are you going to use for the walls after the paper is down? ~Kriss~

  2. I think it will look good! The only place I could do that would be above the fridge, but since I use the fridge to put things on, it wouldn't be practical! LOL! I love it, but we just don't have enough storage here!
    Thanks for sharing,

  3. Looking Good!
    I need help in that purging area! Does that make me a hoarder?
    I love the color yellow on the softer side!
    Prim Blessings

  4. I like what you have done! The Hubbs plans to retire in a couple of years at which time we hope to gut our kitchen. I save each and every idea I like for that project, I will tuck yours in too! Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Your cabinets look great! Maybe I need to do that to solve my cupboard door shutting problem! LOL!!

  6. I love how you redid the doors showcases your pretty yellow dishware.;)

  7. Hey, I like it! I like that color yellow too. You've inspired me to clean out my hutch and rearrange my yellow ware dishes. Wait... oh no, that urge just passed... LOL. No, I'm just kidding.

  8. I love open shelves as opposed to closed cupboards. I love being able to see all my favorite things!
