I amuse myself sometimes :)
As we get closer to having usable kitchen cabinets, I've been researching and brainstorming how to organize all of our kitchen goodies. In the process, I've been battling a little green monster-- who just seems to grow with every new pantry I see. I love a pantry-- the idea of so much storage.. *sigh* and these organized spaces make my little semi-OCD heart go aflutter.
I a bit of a basket case and Dana's pantry over at House*Tweaking has me drooling..
I love her baskets and bins! They are one of the my favorite ways to "pretty up" storage and make for easy to use organization. I love the mix of natural baskets with metal wire.. a good idea for my mix and match space.
Then I ran across Sarah's over at Thrifty Decor Chick. I love how she used taller containers on their sides to stack in a not so tall space... so smart!
I also love how she labeled her shelves by category, such a good idea to help keep things neat and tidy!
And then there was the pantry that seems to have been *everywhere* in blogland. Shelly over at House of Smith's did an amazing job on her pantry makeover and really captured a lot of great ideas into one space.
Love, love, love her labels! Apparently I'm not the only one-- as I've seen her mentioned in a number of other blogs and she's been filling tons of orders. Vinyl seems to be the latest trend and I haven't tried it yet. I'm anxious to as the idea of using vinyl seems so appealing to me. She used it on her container labels as well as the quatrefoil design on the wall.
Also, who doesn't love cute glass jars, pretty baskets, and cute bins and boxes.
Speaking of cute bins and containers, Chris over at Just A Girl recently finished reworking her laundry room cabinets. It's not a pantry, but my kitchen is a kitchen+laundry nook.. so that's close enough.
Plus her ribbon labels are adorable! It's all so bright and happy.
