Our kitchen's glass-doored cabinet got a decluttering this week...
Glass-doored cabinets are another thing I'll eliminate from any wish list for a future kitchen.
If we were staying here a few years longer, I'd remove the glass doors and add trim to make this cabinet into open shelves.
In my opinion, glass doors just make the shelves behind them harder to use. What do you think? Are you a fan of glass-doored cabinets or would you rather just have open shelves instead?
These glass doors are made to look old with the old-fashion glass that has bubbles in it and kind of makes it look wavy.
For now the glass doors will have to stay as we are downsizing our belongings with the intent to sell our house in the near future.
"The Ugly Before"
Painting the inside of the cabinet is a possibility, but for now just cleaning the clutter was enough for me.
To get the cups up off the counter and to put some color in the drab cabinet, I decided to add cup hooks to the middle shelf. That entailed another round with the despicable "cup-hook math" which I find so overwhelming.
This time I laid a long piece of painter's tape across the shelf in the position where I wanted the row of cups to hang. I marked the middle of the board with a line of chalk.
Then I just eyeballed the position of three cups on each side of the middle line. Last time I hung cups in the china cabinet HERE I tried to get all perfect with the math. This time I decided to go a little easier on myself.
What happened to the china cabinet you might ask? It's getting stored in an effort to minimize furniture to just the necessities.
Less furniture = bigger rooms right? Yep, thought you'd agree!
Once the cups looked about equally placed, I marked each cup handle position with a large dot of chalk. This is about as scientific as I can get...
Since these are small cups and I might want to put larger cups up in the future, I spread the cup hooks a little farther apart and limited it to just six.
Here's all you need to make your own professional cup hanging kit...Painter's tape, measuring tape, and a big ole piece of chalk!
I'll be sharing at the here Share Your Style party and here at the Keep In Touch party this week, hope you'll join me.
