...and instead find THIS nastiness...
this was as clean as i could get the drawers:
i used some oops! paint to "refinish" the surface:
after two coats of paint:
my anxiety level just decreased tenfold.
...aaand after adding drawer liners:
usable bathroom drawers!
as for the undersink cabinet: again, i cleaned it as best as i could.
apparently soap and toothpaste, if left long enough, will eat through paint.
it's not a total organization coup, but it's much better...
i'll make things nicer later. for now, i'm just concerned with getting all these boxes unpacked.
