The cabinet under my kitchen sink has always been a cluttered mess. I used to clean it out and organize it about once a month. That was before Bee was born. Now it seems like I have less time on my hands and my kitchen sink cabinet issue doesn’t matter as much as it used to.
Not this week, though. I couldn’t take it anymore and decided to tackle this mess!
I pulled everything out and threw all the garbage away. Lucky for Hubby, I found out there is a tiny leak under the sink. New job for him to tackle! I know how much he loves projects!
Then a created a game plan. My mom gave me a lightly used, curved shower curtain rod like this one the last time I saw her. I had Hubby put it up in our master bathroom about a month ago. I saved the old, ugly rod because, I mean, I’m sure I’d need it eventually!
I decided to use it under my sink!
Well, it turns out it was too long to work. That didn’t stop me, though. I had to find a way to cut it down. I used one of these and I DO NOT recommend anyone else try that! It’s a great tool, but not one you should use for this job.
Hot pieces of aluminium flew everywhere and I got burnt more than once (I was in flip flops & shorts!).
I got it down to the right size, though, and hung it in the cabinet.
Ya know that white basket under my sink in the before picture? When I bought it over a year ago, it came in a two pack. I found the second one just sitting on a closet shelf with one tiny item in it. Great use of space, right? That one item now has a new home and I used the second basket under my sink.
Here’s the finished product:
This is a game changer, people! I love it! I really like having my garbage bags hanging on the rod, too!
The best part of this? It didn’t cost me a penny! Well, I mean, I bought the baskets, but that was over a year ago. If memory serves, they only cost me a couple bucks at Wal-Mart.
What do you think? Are you already doing something like this?
