warning: extreme nastiness ahead!

it was a busy weekend for us - after spending a few days painting and insulating, we finally moved INTO the house!


there wasn't much time for cleaning before moving in so that has kept me extremely occupied. i open drawers, expecting they'll need a cursory clorox wipedown...
 ...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.

  1. Grossssss! Looks like you've got your work cut out for you

  2. How does that even happen?? I would have to work to make my drawers and shelves look like that! Good luck :(
