Follow my quaranclean series as I organize and spring clean our home.
For the last few weeks, I have been doing a little series on my Instagram stories called Quaranclean. I invite a few of my blogger friends and we share an area or small space we’re organizing or spring cleaning. The purpose is to share some tips on how we simplify the areas in our homes so that they can better serve our families.
Last week, I cleaned out the refrigerator. I scrubbed the inside and outside and went to town giving it a nice good cleaning. If you are interested in seeing those tips, you can check out my Instagram as they are all saved under the highlights called, “quaranclean.” I’ve organized our junk drawers, kitchen cabinets, Emmy’s room, her closet and more!
Today, I tackled one cabinet which holds some of our appliances in the kitchen. This cabinet has gotten pretty banged up because it houses our panini maker, blender, waffle maker and food processor. I don’t like to have many appliances out on our counter tops so they are all kept tucked away in cabinets.
As you can see, the cabinet was looking real rough!! The wood had some bad scratches and the paint was also scuffed in so many areas. The good news is that this is just evidence that our kitchen is not just for looks but it’s used quite heavily.
It was time to give it a nice fresh coat of paint and apply some peel and stick wallpaper. You can read this post on how we painted our kitchen cabinets. I love using peel and stick wallpaper remnants for my drawers and cabinets as they help protect the surface and make it look 10x better.
I used this gray poplin peel and stick wallpaper and I highly recommend it. It’s the same brand that I used for so many other areas of my home. This particular texture is so easy to work with since there’s no pattern. Here is another post where I used it to line the back of my bookshelves.
Look what some paint and wallpaper did to this cabinet! It looks better than new doesn’t it? I cleared out some of the things from this cabinet and now it just stores the appliances, vases and extra coffee.
So much better! Even though only Jimmy and I will ever see inside this cabinet, it’s one of those projects that have been on the back burner for some time. Quaranclean is giving me the motivation to tackle such projects. If you are needing to clean out that junk drawer, linen closet or bathroom, join me as I quaranclean during our shelter at home.
Thanks for reading and hope you are all staying safe, friends!
