Kitchen Cure Wrap-Up: Congrats, and Happy Graduation!
Well, Cure-takers, if you’re not there yet, you’re pretty close. You put four weeks of hard work in and, if all went according to plan, your kitchen is clean, healthy and organized. And that means you’re ready to take on spring cooking with your kitchen in tip-top shape.
There were over 2,600 of you on this journey and you all did amazing work. I know not everyone is done, but I encourage you to stay the course. Join the leagues who are finished and cheering you on from their sparkling, organized, cheerful kitchens.
Let’s take a look at some success stories…
Some people went far beyond my expectations. Look at the transformation here, in deniseandpete’s kitchen. This is the situation before the Cure:
And here is the result:
They did a great job on the wall and shelves, picked a nice color, did what looks to be a professional job on the painting and even went the extra mile by doing a magnetic chalkboard finish on the door.
We’ll be leading another Cure in the fall, but if you just can’t wait until then and want to do it again here are all the assignments. Feel free to take it on anytime!
The Spring 2010 Kitchen Cure Assignments
Here’s a nice example of how some pretty quick, easy and inexpensive changes can make a big difference. By eliminating the chaos that lived in their cabinets, this Cure-taker has a fresh new outlook on cooking in their kitchen. It’s that simple.
For great supporting posts like 7 Spring Flowers for the Kitchen, Clearing the Pantry? Make a Free-Form Pasta Casserole, and Use It Or Lose It: The Bread Machine, check out the Spring 2010 Kitchen Cure Page, it’s all there.
This time around, I noticed that more Cure-takers than ever took to heart the “Add Something Beautiful” assignment. I can’t stress enough how this simple act can transform your kitchen and your cooking.
One of my favorite parts of the Cure was reading about the Special Projects people did.
It’s not too late to submit your before and after images. Show us a photo of one significantly improved thing from your kitchen.
Congratulations to you all! I bow down to you for all the hard work and bravery!
