Tackle it Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme


It's been a few weeks since I posted on "Tackle it Tuesday"
This week I'm posting a "tackle" that we did last weekend (because I forgot to post it last Tuesday, oops!)

Our garbage disposal stopped working, and a few days after that, it literally fell off! So, we bought a new one, and Joe set to work replacing it. This forced us to clear out everything under the kitchen sink. After doing so, Joe realized that the board under it was warped and needed replaced, so he cut a new board, made a frame to support it and installed the new garbage disposal. Then I covered the board w/ marble patterned contact paper to help protect it a little from moisture, and then I set to work going through all the crap that was under the sink, and reorganized it so that it was somewhat tidy and useful and easy to get to things. I forgot to take a "before" picture, but rest assured it was a cluttered, full messy cabinet. Now, here's the "after"...

Well done you. I have some kind of a water filter thingummy under my sink that needs to be changed.

The contact paper is a great idea especially a pale colour like that as mine looks ever so dingy and dark.
Cheers

I don't think I've *ever* taken a before picture. EVER! :)

Good job! I love little quick things that we can do like that!

I like that contact paper. I also like the idea of "tackle it tuesday". Can I steal the idea? What do I do? Is it a project that is done ON a Tuesday or can it be done over the weekend and blogged about on a Tuesday?

Under the sink is always a hard place to tackle, but it sounds like you were "forced" into it with the busted disposal and all. Maybe that was a good thing. :) I like that you added contact paper. I'm thinking I should do that...
