Spring Clean the Kitchen

Well, it’s taken me much longer than I’d like to admit, and I’m not finished, but I have got a good chunk of the kitchen cleaned and re-organised. I’ve kept the photos small, since there are so many, but just click on them if you’d like to see them bigger.


I started with the display cupboard…

and underneath – this part has a door…

The baking sheets…. I moved the silicon stuff to a drawer…

and appliance cupboard…

and the drawers….

Some didn’t require too much work…

I sorted out tea-towels and placemats…getting rid of those past their best…

and gave the dog bowl drawer a thorough clean…


I decluttered the kids stuff and moved the silicon bakeware here…

The next day I tackled the fridge..

and pantry… which always takes ages…even though I did it not very long ago…

Finally I moved our meal planning stuff off the fridge and behind the pantry door…


Still to do – under the sink, the tea/coffee cupboard, the medicine cupboard and my recipe books (major culling needed there). In the meantime it now looks like this….

    Great job Libby! I’ve always thought your kitchen looks wonderful – great design. Goodluck with cleaning out the cookbooks, I find them a bit hard to let go of.
