Yesterday, I showed you how I cleaned out our "junk drawer" which then inspired me to deep clean our countertops. I admit to getting anxious when our counters get too cluttered and my OCD side takes over and just clears everything off to start fresh. I wipe all the surfaces down really well and only put back the minimum to keep the kitchen looking clean and simple. Ahhh, I can breathe again:)
This time, I put my white Container Store tray near the kitchen sink to hold our dish soap, hand soap, and the little faux potted plant I made. It instantly make the countertop look neater.
The dish soap is decanted in a glass bottle from Home Goods probably meant for olive oil. But it looks so much prettier than my plastic bottle of Dawn.
I also really enjoy keeping a small votive of live flowers or something like this tree clipping from our backyard at the kitchen sink. It seems to make doing dishes a little happier.
I'm also smitten with this wooden, square tray from Crate & Barrel that holds my most often-used cooking utensils and salt and pepper shakers.
I added a little DIY framed art as a backdrop. It's a calendar page framed in a Target frame.
And since I've been on a cleaning/organizing kick lately, I wanted to share this older post with you about my TOP 3 things you can do to make you feel more organized.
Whenever I need to feel organized quickly, I do at least one of these things. Hope it helps you too!
Have a great weekend!
