Home challenge week 1 is all about Kitchen countertops & sink. It can be found here.
Nigel and I did this together whilst the kids were at Grandma and Grandpa's. It was fun and quick to do together.
We use the bench as a drop everything as we come in the door place! Early in 2011 we put some storage in from Ikea so we could store bags and things like that, so that wasn't so bad, but it's all the paper and clutter. So we did a big clean up and took all the crap off the bench. I didn't take before photos (really should have)...but here are the after's.
For storing bags etc (actually we didn't do anything to this - was already like it)
Clean bench - oh how nice you look!
Spot for coins (brown bowl), fruit and mail/papers etc
Coffee machine and kettle have got to stay - can't miss out on my daily good coffee - andNigel has instant...so both needed!
And of course the Thermomix must stay on the bench - cause that's just awesome!
Okay so week 1 complete. But to be honest getting it clean was the easy part. We have done this before. Keeping it clean is the real challenge...and will last my lifetime!
