QUICK! Can you tell what drives me insane about this picture? (Other that the lack of caulk at the base of the tile...::cough cough::Eric::cough cough::)
I'll give you a bigger hint.
I have ABSOLUTELY no idea why that darn bottle drives me insane, but I hate looking at it. Not that my house is spotless or uncluttered, but seeing a bottle of dish soap on the back of the sink drives me insane. I can do hand soap, but not dish soap. Maybe because it reminds me of chores to be completed and I don't like to clean. Who knows.
NOT having soap readily available isn't a good thing either. With V around, I can't keep it under the sink. Not because I am scared of her drinking it or anything like that. I am more concerned that she is going to find the soap and decide it is lotion and slather it all over herself. She does that.
So I went to The Container Store and bought a Quattro Stagioni Cruet. What's that? A fancy oil bottle. Whenever the soap starts getting low I fill it back up! I was almost out of the orange soap in the bottle. Blue and orange kind of makes a funky color, huh?
I think this looks a LOT better than the bottle.
Also, as an added bonus you have to really try to get the soap out. You have to shake it a bit. Why is that good? YOU USE LESS SOAP! I have a VERY heavy hand when it comes to using a normal bottle of dish soap. This makes me conserve it.
See! It looks fantastic with my hand soap. That is another bottle I have been refilling for years. I worked at a salon and stocked up before I left. :) I am running low after 7 years. If I happen to have any friends who can get some backbar Aveda soap LET ME KNOW!
Oh....one last thing before I go. Coffee cans, in this case an empty espresso can, makes a FANTASTIC holder of paint brushes and watercolors. V loves to go to the sink, pull up a chair, and declare it "PAINT TIME!" and she grabs her supplies and heads to the table.
