The house we're in currently doesn't have a dishwasher (NOOOOOOO). I have contemplated selling a kidney on the black market so we could get one. But alas, I have no creepy, shady friends with connections to the black market. Only semi-creepy ones.
Perhaps eBay, then.
To make it even worse, I don't have a window over my sink (NOOOOOOO). I have a blank white wall. How un-inspiring. I put up a few pictures when we moved in, but we've been here almost a year and they are getting kinda old seeing as I look at them every day (or not ... how 'bout at least once a week?).
Sooo, I came up with a shimple idea. It is shuper easy. I promise.

Put it all together and you get ... THIS! Easily changeable and a great place for inspiration.
I especially lurve the tiny baby clothespins (purchased at Wal-Mart for $2.99ish). Are those not the cutest things ever? (besides Baby Munchkin, of course :)
I placed a cute tea cup (found at a yard sale) next to the sink to hold the clothespins and thumbtacks.
When I stepped back to look at it, I liked it, but I realized I still had to look at the bottom of the overhead cabinet (ick). So I tacked up some Christmas lights and some sheer fabric and ...
Ta-dah! Oops, already used that one. How 'bout VOILA! There we go. This picture is (obviously) taken with the lights off. It doesn't look quite as cool with the overheads on, but it's infinitely better than staring at stained particle board. Plus, it is completely undoable, which is especially good for us renters.
Mini clothespins (and shiny things) rock!
