Dreaded Project

I thought I would jump start my reoccurring New Year’s Resolution.  I would attack the dreaded pantry.

This darn area has been my nemesis since we moved in.  It hit an all time low when I went to set the table for Thanksgiving and could not find my linens, napkins, candle sticks, candles…

I swore I would find these items, and my china before Christmas.

Now before you look at the photos, remember DO NOT JUDGE!

Around the corner

It got so bad that we just tossed things in the direction of the shelves!

The back shelving

It was bad!

We pulled everything out.

The last, I hope, of the moving boxes.

And now…

I added two metal, display boards from Ikea.  This will get the stuff off my fridge.

My first thought was to hit The Container Store and get cool organizing bins.  Hubby discouraged that approach and I am grateful.  Now I will see what I need and buy accordingly.  Trip to Ikea?

After we opened every box, sorted all the china, glassware, etc. I never found my linens.  Hmmm… We do not have a dining room, so we are trying to figure out what we will use and how to store accordingly.  

This brings us some peace in this chaotic season!
