The more I remodel this kitchen, the more I’m thinking of new ways to organize it. Since my kitchen is on the small side, I don’t have lots of extra cabinet or drawer space. So I have to be very wise in how I use this valuable ‘real estate’. I discovered by simply organizing the kitchen counter, I could free up a drawer and the cabinet over the microwave. It was perfect! So after a quick shopping trip and a little organizing, here is the results…
Like it? I really do! It was one of the easiest DIY projects I’ve done in this kitchen. 😉 Plus, I found some great sales last weekend and was able to score all of my kitchen organizing supplies for way cheap. Love when that happens! When my eyes found this round wood and metal tray and I knew it would be the perfect size to hold all my oils, utensils, and seasonings. Speaking of oils…I love the gold weighted spout on these little oil bottles (they only open when you tilt to pour). I picked up two of those. Then I needed something to organize my wood and metal utensils. I found two white porcelain holders that were a great size and price!
Once I got every thing home it was time to start organizing. But first I had to remove those pesky stickers off the bottom of my holders. I can never get those things off in one whole piece. I scrape and scrape and even after the paper is gone the stickiness remains! Ugh. At least, that’s what used to happen. Now I just use Goo Gone.
I simply spray the sticker, wait a minute and the just lift the sticker right off. Everything is gone super quick…including the stickiness.
It’s a beautiful thing. Almost as beautiful as my completely organized kitchen counter!
Did you notice something? I also just gave you a sneak peek at my new Quartz counters and my new (installed by yours truly) subway tile back splash! I’ll be sharing the back splash tutorial next week. I will have a ton of tips on what NOT to do. Hey…live and learn right?
So, do you like the way I uncluttered and organized my kitchen counter? I’m already finding it’s so more useful. Plus now I have more cabinets and drawers to fill with more stuff! 😉
