I had the pleasure on Tuesday, of driving up to beautiful Anna, TX, to work on a pantry. This pantry is a farm house lover’s dream. It has a screen door and window with a view!
My client wanted to freshen up the space, get everything off the floor, and create rhyme and reason to her pantry.
We started by emptying out all items, cleaning the shelves, and creating a space that made sense to my clients needs.
We then combined like items. Canned peaches and jams (put up by her husband-so awesome), spices, oils, vinegars, etc. onto the shelves. We used these stadium shelves, clear boxes, and clear lazy susan’s, (my personal favorite) that she purchase at Target.
I labeled these jars for her but forgot to take a picture!
We then turned our attention to her serving dishes. We stored according to like items. Serving platters and bowls in one section, serving plates and cups into another, all small appliances together, etc.
Next, we organized her spice cabinet.
Labeling all the canisters, and organizing into sections like “baking”, cookbooks, spices, etc.
Displaying all like things together, like her cookbooks, makes it pretty too!
My client now has a completely organized pantry, with a clean floor, and room to spare. Her spice cabinet is now cleaned, labeled, and organized. She can find anything she needs, and actually has an empty shelf!!
This was the sweetest client ever, she served me a bowl of fresh, home grown peaches that were the best I’ve ever had! She offered to make me lunch, and then sent me home with a bag of just picked tomatoes and more peaches from her garden.
I love my job, I love meeting people in their homes, and I love the kindness and joy that we share making their spaces productive and beautiful.
I think making some peach salsa is on my agenda today!!
I’m ready to help you today,
