new soap pump & our green kitchen

new soap pump
Oh happy day! I finally replaced the plastic CVS hand soap dispenser with this much-better-looking soap pump from Target and filled it with Method soap in pink grapefruit. I got the Method soap at a great price, I believe. The cost per fluid ounce was cheaper than the generic Walmart brand! We got the soap pump over the weekend at Target. It was $13 - spendy - but I love the look of the sink area now.

While I was taking pictures, I remembered I never posted pictures of the kitchen after the big paint job. So here it is. Yes, the kitchen is usually this tidy. No kidding. I don't sleep well if it isn't spick-and-span. However, I might have scrubbed a bit more for the pictures. And I also turned on the lights under the cabinets for the photoshoot - something I never do.

The next big thing on my list of to-do for the kitchen is to replace the curtains. I want to add more colors (too much green and too matchy-matchy right now) and I think curtains would be a great place to do just that. I have seen a few fabrics I like online and may take up the sewing part myself ask hubby's mom for help. We shall see.

  1. LOVE it! We have a similar shade of green in our main bathroom and in three years I haven't even gotten close to sick of it.

  4. Wow, your kitchen looks so great that I bet even doing chores there would be bliss. Wish I could do the same for my kitchen, which is sadly just... functional.

  5. OMG-another OCD kitchen person besides me! I have to have a clean kitchen before I go to bed. Meaning-no dishes in the sink and counters are cleaned and cleared off. Can't sleep if it's not in ship shape. LOL.
