My Newly Organised Pantry

Some of my regular readers may have read about my excitement when Bradley announced that this summer (okay, last summer now because with all the wind and rain today it is definitely feeling winter here!) we would definitely be building our new kitchen. A preliminary wall was built, and demolition started, but due to unforeseen circumstances that's where it all stopped. I have been waiting on this new kitchen for some time now and had been ignoring the old kitchen because a new one would be coming! Well, it didn't, and my cupboards were such a wreak that using the old kitchen became a nightmare. I have decided that 2008 is the year of sorting and getting things organised for me so I have spent the last two or three weeks organising all my kitchen cupboards. And this is how beautiful they look now!

The labeller and I have been having a lot of fun! I managed to fit kitchen things into my pantry that have never fitted in there before and still have room for new things! (Yes, It was sort of like magic.)

Oh, and I did have to go to Ikea (I know, any excuse) to get a new stool/step ladder because the old one was broken. (Really!) This stool is completely brilliant. I am extremely happy with this purchase and love my new Ikea stool passionately.

So, the new kitchen is still happening - just not as quickly as we would have liked. And in the meantime it's easier to use the kitchen again! Ahhh..... my newly organised life is going to be so good!

Yes, organisation in the kitchen is so satisfying - your new-look cupboards are very impressive. I wish I could say the same about mine. Mind you, I can't help thinking you must need to be pretty organised with all those children.

Glad to see that labeller is coming in handy! I love it! :^D

Looks great! I love having my space organized - too bad it doesn't stay that way around here.

Hmm, I have both the same kitchen problem - may be 2009 now and it is not pretty - and believe it or not, here in the Welsh hills, the same Ikea stool sits just outside my pantry. Mine looks a whole lot dirtier than yours though.

You may love your IKEA stool, but it's a pain in the butt to put together!

there is nothing as nice as a newly organised cupboard. my fabric cupboard is just waiting for me to organise it - everytime i open the door, fabric falls out.
i really, really, really must tidy it up!


A woman after my own heart, I love to be organised too, and I feel so much better for it! x
