When upper cabs don't go to the ceiling
My upper cabs don't go to the ceiling. When my kitchen got its facelift, I kept the old boxes and added new doors and crown.
It doesn't get as dirty/greasy/dusty on top of the cabs as many think. But, to help keep things easy to clean, I run paper towels over the tops (just the right width) and a couple of times a year take out the old and replace with new.
I also have a cat that likes to hang out on top of the uppers. I think you can see where this is going.
Today I heard some soft paper rustling and discovered Bessie burrowing under the paper towels. I'm afraid this has now become a thing of hers.
