~A Peek Into Maisy's World~


Since the kitchen is getting painted we had to take the doors off the cabinets.

One word for you......WOW!!!!!

I have so much crap that doesn't match.
It's in the wrong places.
Maisy needs to get organzized.....in a BIG WAY~





On a light note...I love the color yellow!

Does any one family with only 2 kids in the house REALLLLLLLLY need to have that many water bottles?? Sheesh. You would think we were active or something??
Almost as if we go on long bike rides together just to get to the local ice-cream parlor.


To think that we actually fondue every New Year's Eve.
That's right, cheese..meat and chocolate fondue!!!
Jeez....we are so old school.
Does anyone else do that?


I really need to simplify and just get all white serving pieces.
"No Bill, seriously, I'm just doing everyone a favor so I don't confuse the kids when they unload the dishwasher that one special time a year."


Nothing like a cabinet for cookbooks, crayons & coloring books. Now, let's throw in some energy bars, Chuck-E-Cheese tokens (yes, that is what I do to expose Bradley to every germ in the world possible) and phone books.
Oh wait...I forgot garbage sticker and the dogs flea and heartworm pills.
Wow...I can't believe I almost forgot to mention the gardening books for the pond and the manuals that came with the house when we bought it.
I like to think of this cabinet at the "One Stop Shop" cabinet.


Keep in mind that every time I cook I swear like a sailor because I can NEVER find the spices I'm looking for~


This is hilarious.....Just look at that.
Pie pans, colanders, protein powder, baggies, muffin tins and of course the water jug.
Seriously, why do we need a water jug if we only drink beer, wine, coffee and pop?


Apparently, it's a bit much for me to stack my pans in a neat and orderly fashion.


This cabinet actually makes it look like I clean.
Nope, I have a cleaning lady~


Thank your lucky stars that I didn't even show you what was inside the drawers.


This is my family room empty.

I better get going...there is a lot to do around here.

Happy Tuesday....

I'm so happy to be back with all of you again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Katie said...

It's going to look great! What a major undertaking, I can't even imagine. But it looks like it was totally worth it and maybe you can sell some of your treasures on Maisy's Market?!

Jackie said...

That's how I felt when we remodeled and I had to pack the kitchen up. Yikes! I think most of our cupboards would look like that if we "exposed" ourselves!

Amber Ellis said...

Don't worry, mine look worse!! I LOVE the colors though. They are great!

Lisa said...

wow! Just home and your repainting the kitchen. you have a lot of get up and go!
Hugs,Lisa

blossom said...

thank you so much for this post...so refreshingly honest and funny...thankyou, just what i needed today xx

~Holly~ said...

When did you sneak into my house and take pics of my cabinets?! LOL So looks like my pot and pans cabinet!! Good luck with the makeover and I love that color yellow! :

imjacobsmom said...

Holly said it - when did you sneak into my kitchen and take shots of my cabinets? I would be totally afraid to show you mine. To think when I moved in here I thought I had so many cabinets and drawers that I didn't have enough stuff to fill'em. Now every drawer is a junque drawer... I can't wait to see the finished result. ~ Robyn

The Kramer Angle said...

Your cupboards are just like mine! A total mess! Thanks for making me feel better about my own!

By the way, which white did you choose?

Sandi said...

WOW you started painting with all that stuff in the cupboards? If I did that I would have paint everywhere!!! Are you painting or someone else? Also are you painting oak cabinets? Please let me know how it goes...steps etc. I want to paint mine but everyone says I can't paint oak because of the grain.
Blessings~

Tara said...

Amy you are too funny! I loved this...and I wouldn't dare show you my cabinets, you would throw up! Looks like things are coming along and hey, can you send your cleaning lady over to my house...I need all the help I can get! XO

Just be happy! said...

you made me laugh so hard when you said that you swear like a sailor every time you cook, I just tried to imagine it... LOL

Anne Marie said...

how someone could actually live with all open shelves seriously is beyond me! I need the 'throw and stash' places -

doesn't it feel good!?! to remodel!
I love it!

Walking on Sunshine... said...

Your shelves don't look that bad!! You should see my sister's shelves, now they could really use some organizing! I love how big your kitchen is! Looks so spacious! Can't wait to see the cabinets complete!! Enjoy your day!

Backyard Candle Co. said...

Looks EXACTLY like mine!! I could care less what the inside of my cupboards look like. I am not an organizer AT ALL. :)

Forever Vintage said...

Can't wait to see it when its done Amy!..we went thru this last Summer and Fall. My cupboards looked like that as well. I did manage to get rid of lots of junk in the process.

Nikki said...

Thanks for keeping it real Maisy!

LuLu said...

tracey said...

Very funny! You could always try being really anal like me and keeping your kitchen cabinets totally organized - oh it's tons of fun...

Victoria said...

LOL I can so relate! We just had new cabinet doors made and then painted. I thought I would go insane staring at all my junk in my cabinets. :) Oh but I love it now so it's all worth it!

Victoria said...

Oh heavens above I am in love with the piece you bought for $25 from Craig's List!!!!!

What do men know? Sally is gorgeous! I can't wait to see her all dressed up in a new coat of paint.

gwengoods said...

I stopped stacking my pots and pans recently too! Just put them in, it works

Sarah said...

I have a bottom cabinet just like yours with coloring books, playdoh--because the kitchen is where that stuff belongs right? It just always seemed to be a school-kid cabinet even though I could desperately use another cabinet and drawer! Hmmm...

Looking at your cleaning cabinet reminds me that I need to go through and organize mine! Ack!

And we are a family of 7 and we have double the amount of water bottles you have, what is that about really???

littlebyrd said...

Good luck with all your projects! Sheesh - you've got a lot going on. We are getting a new roof today. I know, exciting. haha!

Tracy is ... Loving Pretty Things said...

you are my hero. i would never show the inside of my cabinets. ever. and just because you did -you've inspired me to get organized! :)

LOVE YOU!

xo

Jeanneoli said...

It is coming along amazingly! The yellow looks beautiful and I can't wait to see the final result! Your cabinets look like everyone elses...don't feel bad. You make me laugh everytime I read your blog...the water bottles was my favorite today:-)

PS~Erin said...

I just popped over from Rebekah's blog and I'm so excited to get to see your kitchen transformation. I have been dreaming/planning mine for abt 9 years now, so seeing it actually happen for someone is quite exciting! Oh, and I just purged our water bottles. It was out of control!
