Spring Cleaning Day 3

Today was an amazing day, weather wise. We woke up to blue skies. Not a cloud in sight. Not the best weather to want to stay in and spring clean. So instead of doing that this morning we went to the park with all our Mums and Kids friends. We had such a nice time. 

But when i got home it was back to work. Today is the first day working on the kitchen and at first I was going great. But as 5pm came and went I very quickly lost my steam and had to stop for the day. 

Here are the before photos:

Looking to the kitchen from the office area. 
Looking to the kitchen from the dining area. 
I have tapped up the "kitchen" section from Simple Mom's e-book. It was a great help being right there for quick reference. 

So two hours later.........

The counter is now spotless - all sorted out and only what i need on top. The outside of all the cupboards are all cleaned too. I started to take out all the food, snacks and baking supplies but i slowly got stuck with putting them back. Can not figure out how I want to do it (as my tuppaware and baking supplies were not working where they were) So I am going to sleep on it and work on it tomorrow morning. 
Another look from the office area. Love how clean it looks!

Your kitchen looks wonderful! I also like how you printed out part of Simple Mom's e-book and taped it up for easy reference! Great idea.
Thanks for the post.

Wow, it looks great. I am also an obsessed scrapbooker but time seems harder to come by these days. Keep up the good work.
