Cleaning out under my sink has been on my 100 project list for awhile. It seems like it has been becoming more and more disorganized ever since I had my baby, and it finally got bad enough that I started avoiding it. I decided this week that it needed to get crossed off the list, so I got to work.
Here is my before picture. I am totally embarrassed to post this, but it is what it is. Oh well.
After I got everything pulled out, and wiped up, I wondered why I had avoided it all so long, since it literally took less than ten minutes. I think part of the reason is because I knew there was some water damage there and I didn't want to really deal with that yet. I had done a little research and found that a lot of home improvement experts and plumbers suggest putting in peel and stick tiles under your sink, to cover the existing damage and to prevent further damage, so I decided today was the day.
I found a box of 25 peel and stick tiles for $12.00 at one of the little stores in my little town. I only needed six for under my sink, but I decided I had some other projects that I could use the tiles for - they definitely will not go to waste. They went in really easily and doesn't it look sooo much better?
I got rid of a few things under the sink that I never use and then used a couple of bins I had on hand to containerize the rest of the stuff. It looks much better and I honestly sleep better knowing that everything is finally clean and organized under that sink (Crazy! I know.)
