Home Improvements: Kitchen Shelves
But back to my home improvement projects...
Inspired by Emersonmade's pantry as well as Martha's kitchen, my friend Lizzy recommended putting in some open shelves on our blank kitchen wall. She suggested white shelves & Ikea brackets that allow the jars & their contents to shine, while the shelves themselves almost disappear. For containers, we used some large jars from our wedding candy bar, repurposed food containers & purchased some new Weck jars. John was skeptical about the whole thing (What's the point of transferring flour to a jar when it works in the bag?), but ultimately trusted Lizzy. The result is heaven. I love the airiness of it, John has been snacking on almonds more than usual, and we now have drawer space for bottles & bibs. All around, a big improvement!
