A busy weekend ahead of us, so the next few tasks will be smaller ones; I feel OK about that, though, after the mammoth under-stairs job!
Today to tackle one of the recurring issues in this house – the fact that every drawer has turned into a junk drawer. It seems that no matter what, they get stuffed full, but that’s at least partly because we never had places for some things. So, as it turned out, 90% of the drawers in the house contained at least one hair bobble, at least one pair of scissors, at least two red pens, a handful of curtain hooks (WHY?), etc etc. With all of those things removed, suddenly they’re not so much junk drawers any more.
So I decided to tackle the bedside cabinet drawers. Again, this was a great example of the whole bigger project paying off, as nearly everything I touched I could instantly find a home for! Maybe some of you live like this all the time, but not me. It was a great feeling to use one of my pound shop boxes to store the battery charger and all the rechargeable batteries I found and it’ll be even greater the day I need them and I know where they are!
Here’s my revamped, minimalist bedside cabinet drawer:
Isn’t that sweet? Like living in a hotel.
I also did my underwear drawer but I’m not posting a picture of that on the internet. (Although TOP TIP ALERT- wind pairs of tights round your hand and tuck the toes in the middle for a tangle-free drawer!)
