If there is one thing my kitchen does not lack, it’s storage space. We have a lot of cupboards and cabinets to keep things in. It’s convenient in that everything is hidden away and no one has to see the mess I deal with daily.
Maybe it’s nesting. Maybe it’s spring cleaning. Maybe it’s the mutant spawn of both (probably), but the cabinet mess has been driving me crazy me lately … especially the way the spices all piled together.
So I picked up this frame ledge and these jars from Ikea. I spent my afternoon transferring spices from plastic containers to the glass ones. I pouted when Josh asked if he could hang up the ledge tomorrow or on the weekend (I won!). And then I cleaned it all up and put it together.
I’m not sure what to do with the frames yet. I might print some of my favourite recipes and put them in there. Or postcards? Or photos? Or some of Luisa’s scribblings? Or maybe I’ll comb the flea markets for old recipe cards…
Either way, I’m delighted with the way my rack has turned out. And the cupboard looks better too, though still not post-worthy.
