Cabinet Organizing #7

I had a laundry supply mess on my hands!!!

AFTER
the makeover:
This liquid laundry detergent is on its way out. I started making my own from the recipe on a post at Mr. Micawber's fantastico blog. 
Click here for the link on the how to make this detergent.
I suppose I better use up the liquid and create some extra room.
This cabinet would feel so good with new shelf liner and paint.
And that's a bag of "lint" there on the right. 
Yes, you read that right, "lint", we collect it for camping fire starters.
 Check out the new labels.
The fire extinguisher is handy in case that bag of lint starts a fire. :-0
More new labels so the fam knows where stuff goes.

The "homemade detergent" sits in between the washer and dryer where it's very handy.
It's too bad this lid is broken. I may have to break the "don't buy anything for this project" rule and splurge on a new container.


Here is
BEFORE:
What is this mess???
The photos make it look better than it really is.
Some of these socks had a match and the rest were thrown away. 
(That was difficult to do; oh brother!) The labels were inaccurate and yucky too.
I soooooo wanted to paint the inside of this cabinet white, 
but the rule is to clean and organize NO cute stuff....yet...

  1. I really like the labels - I've thought of putting up some myself so as to leave Mr. M with no excuse for putting things back wrong. But he wouldn't read them anyway so what's the point? :)

    Thank you so much for your kind comment.
