Four years ago I made the error of sticking the wooden cutlery drawer insert thing into the drawer with some sticky pads. I think I knew it was a mistake when I did it, but I did it anyway, it may have been on the same day I hit the kickboard into place because it was wonky. Looking back at the post about these incidents it turns out I did know the sticky pad thing was a bad idea.
Fast forward to today, inspired by something I read online (yes, I know, I should have left well alone) I decided today was the day to tackle the drawer. It turns out that pound shop sticky pads are very good quality and do not lose their adhesive qualities over time. Still stuck fast. So I thought to myself I could swap some of the kitchen drawers around, use a different cutlery organiser and all would be well. As it turns out not very many of my kitchen drawers are the same size, I swapped the only drawer that would fit only to discover, it didn't fit -
Back to square one. Well, it would be back to square one if the wonky bonky drawer would fit back into the hole from whence it came, it's a work in not-much progress. So I tackled the drawer containing the tin opener, grater and all that stuff (does that have a proper name?) instead.
I think the bottom one is the after photo, hard to tell really. I did manage to get rid of a few things
Two blue things for who knows what, seals for jars I probably don't own, a rubbish strainer and an even worse tea infuser. I've owned the infuser for about a month, made two completely undrinkable cups of tea with it and now it's off out of the house. I do like the two big scoopy spoon things but I don't think I ever use them, the larger of the two does look like it would be useful in the garden though.
All in all have things progressed? Not really. Am I glad I did it? Yeah.
