I got a bit crazy & Dresser Reveal

I got a bit crazy yesterday and went on this organizing kick.  I cleaned out my messy kitchen cupboards.  

**Please don't judge me when you see the following photos***

I emptied everything out, wiped & disinfected the cupboard.

And the end result was this:


Then theres the cupboard that houses the glasses, mugs and some baking trays:

Look at it now:

Then we have the dreaded and oh so messy Tupperware cupboard!.  Who elses looks like this???


Even hubs was impressed with this one!

Now onto the dresser.  Oh how I agonized over this!.  I literally lost sleep over what colour to paint this thing.  Remember it before:

Well look at it now:

I painted it a soft blueish/gray.  I dis-stressed it a teeny weeny bit on the edges.  I didn't want to go over-board so I thought less was better.  I kept the same knobs because I thought they suited it well.  

I'm very happy with how this turned out, and can't wait to find my next project....oh wait - perhaps I should finish my table, chairs & hutch first?!.  That has been put on the back burner while I did this!.

I LOVE the dresser! And congrats on the organizing. Photos on a blog don't do justice to the sanity and peace of mind a good organizing marathon can bring, but I understand! :)
