I ended up having to shift things around on my kitchen countertop. It is because the small wooden tray holding the boho cutting boards below got wet. And the color stained my white countertops.
Below is a photo with the tray.
Moving The Boho Cutting Boards:
I loved my boho cutting boards along with the cow creamer on this little wooden tray with handles. But I rarely lifted it up. And when I finally moved it to clean underneath, there was the stain.
I tried getting the reddish stain out and got most of it out with baking soda. But I knew it was best if I move the tray some place else where it wouldn’t get wet.
Currently it is on my desk holding my camera lenses.
Elevating Kitchen Cleaners On A Stand:
This is what I replaced the tray and cutting boards with. I found this little gem of a stand at Marshall’s.
It was the first time I’d been in there in probably a year. But they were making sure everyone had a mask and it was a weekday, so few people were shopping there.
Yuck. The side of my sink looks awful. I can’t seem to make it look clean. Anyone have suggestions on cleaning these type of sinks?
When you elevate something on a stand it elevates its importance and gives it a bit of prestige. (What are those things anyway? I can’t think of the name.) It’s too small for a cake stand.
Elevating some of your things also moves the eye up and down around your space.
I put the bread box over on the counter for the first time.
There’s Ivy begging me to get the yard stick to retrieve her swirly toy.
Whenever I go into the kitchen, she does this. I wish she’d stop putting them under there because it isn’t easy to get them out.
This tray is now on the other side of the countertop.
Sorry about the glare in the scales from the overhead light. There’s just not enough light in here to take photos without it.
The other white tray on the far right remains where it was. The coffee maker and box filled with K-cups is still in the same place too.
So that’s my rearranged counter space. I added a few more things to the open shelves because I just needed to put them somewhere. The set of bowls nested in the big red bowl for instance was on the opposite wall shelves before.
Clearance Mikasa Glasses:
I also picked up a set of four Mikasa glasses at Marshall’s in the clearance aisle. I paid $5 for the set.
