Back in April, I read on Kelly's blog as she worked her way through the Money Saving Mom's 4 week plan for a clean and organized home. The tasks were things like clean out your fridge and medicine cabinet and air vents and throw away/donate clutter as you find it.
I did many of the things on the list including cleaning all the windows, blinds, ceiling fans and light fixtures.
But I never did get around to cleaning the tops of the kitchen cabinets.
While Jeff was home and with lots of help from Gavin, they took care of the cabinet tops for me.
I had a lot of stuff up there and man, was it greasy and dusty.
It is has all been washed but I don't think anything is going back up there for now.
Jeff is standing on a platform but my almost 6 foot husband is having to stand on his tiptoes to clean the tops of those cabinets.
The upper cabinets have crown molding around them and the shelf part is several inches below that.
So displaying things is tricky as they sit lower than the crown molding and there only about 10 inches between the crown molding and ceiling.
For now, the cabinet tops are clean and empty.
I've looked around on Pinterest for ideas to decorate them but nothing strikes my fancy just yet.
