Happy Friday! Do you have a fun Memorial Weekend? We had a family bbq and much needed time at home to regroup and work in the yard! Sound familiar! This is my busy season and the Denver market is crazy! At our house, the first room to show distress is the kitchen. And, with my college-age son home for the summer with his new found love of cooking, my kitchen sink looks like the dump. Here is how to keep the sink pretty. My initial inspiration was from this picture from BH&G.
Is this the prettiest sink ever? We have a similar faucet and I don’t see any pasta sauce splatter or water spots on this one. I love the porcelain sink. And, that tray!
Here’s my version of how to keep the sink pretty! I pulled a few key elements and continue to play with it. We have a corner sink so it chews up the valuable counter real estate. I started with a mini cake plate (from Target dollar section). I had this next to the sink for about 12 minutes and decided the cake plate could be better used.
So when I “won” a gift basket of Meyer cleaning products at a school auction I had plans for the petite stand. And, how pretty is this when all the cleaning products are the same brand? I usually have a hodgepodge of brands. But, it looks pretty with matching labels, doesn’t it? Something to think about on my next trip to HomeGoods!
And, if there’s a sink there needs to be towels! I found these cute Turkish towels at one of my favorite online store here. The towel rack is from a Pottery Barn outlet years ago. I love the look and the towels stay dry with the sunshine streaming in from where I will have this door.
I love real plants next to the sink because it’s near a water source. The plant’s chance of survival increases dramatically if in close proximity to the sink.
The sink and the surrounding area stays clean because all the essentials are on display and within reach. Not excuses.
