Kitchen Cure: Week One

As I mentioned a few days ago, I signed up for Apartment Therapy’s Kitchen Cure, a four-week program to designed to whip your kitchen in shape. It kicks off this weekend, so if you’d like to join me and over 2,000 others, just follow the link above.

This afternoon I received my first assignment: Clean Out the Fridge and Pantry.

Prior to cleaning, however, I had to take “Before” photos of the pantry, fridge and cabinets. They were a little disorganized, but not terrible. Have a look:

This is the opposite wall, before we demo’d it.

And, as it looks today.

The electrician has been here a couple days now, and this wall is ready for sheetrock! I debated about calling our contractor to do it, because I really, really hate to hang drywall, but I think we’re going to do it ourselves and save the money. It shouldn’t be too bad.

As for my first assignment, I already started on cleaning the pantry, and I’m going to tackle the fridge tomorrow. Who knows what’s lurking in there?!
