Hooked on Getting Rid of the FAKE
You know those fake panels on the front of most sinks? For some reason fake anything really bothers me. I don't like fake flowers, plants, panels, anything fake. I also hate wasted space. When I moved into my home 8 years ago, getting rid of the fake panels on my sink was one of my first improvements along with painting the 1980's dark oak cabinets in my kitchen. This is a very simple home improvement that anyone can do. They are called Tip-Out Trays and can be found at any home improvement store. I looked at Lowes and found them for around $17.
All you do is detach your fake panel and install the hardware that comes in the box. My panels came off very easily and I was able to do this project by myself with no problems. I also added a handle to match my cabinets. Here is a picture from Lowes (click on it to go to the Lowes website)
I like to keep old toothbrushes for cleaning in mine and my lemonade Kool-Aid for cleaning my dishwasher with. If you don't understand what the lemonade has to do with my dishwasher, click HERE.
