31 Days: The Dish Drainer
The last few homes we have lived in have had the sink with the dumb divider down the middle. We have always had a dishwasher, but some things get washed by hand. I have always kept a metal dish drainer that is much too small in one side because I don’t care for counter top clutter.
And I clearly adhere very strictly to this rule.
Try not to be too jealous of my backsplash, it’s custom to look like just like drywall, very one of a kind. And the thing that looks like an upside down strawberry is Troy’s volcano.
Jeff is on vacation next month and hopefully the lower half of the kitchen and the backsplash will be completed. The new sink we will install (we meaning Jeff) is a single bowl, so I decided to come up with a solution for the hand washed dishes now because this dish draining situation has only been bothering me for TEN years.
I stopped into the Container Store and shelled out $20 for a bamboo drying rack and $5 for a dish drying mat.
I guess I could have just picked up the drying mat, but I think this will make the dish clutter a bit more stylish. I guess while the rack isn’t in use, I could store it under the sink. This will never, ever happen, but a girl can dream.
For 31 days, I’m tackling the Hot Mess. Read all about it here.
