It all started last night because I redid my windowsill with Mason jars to get ready for lilacs and dogwood flowers.
First though-I wanted to clean my window. Wasps had built a nest between the window and the screen last summer and I never had the heart to kill them. They made a mess! But when I climbed up on the chair and took the curtain down and took the screen out, I noticed the filth up above. It had been awhile since I had cleaned up there and ewwwwww!
So this morning I thought-I'm going to take all that crap down AND I'm going to take down that border AND I'm going to try to get that rail off. It was nice in 1987, but now the dated dirt trap had to go! With a little help from a hammer and a crow bar, off it came.
When I took all that stuff down along with the border-it was so dark up there, it looked terrible. So I just went ahead and cleaned. And cleaned some more. I was trying to figure out what to put up there. I started with a few of my Pyrex bowls, and well the rest is history.
(My fridge is naked-I took all my pics off today, but I will be putting updated pics back on.)
I like the color the bowls added and I think the whole kitchen looks better than before.
Wow-it's so true that you have to mess up to clean up and oh, boy-what a mess I had.
