I went to Container Store today and I must say that as soon as I walked in, it was like a tide of calmness enveloped me. I wasn't worried about the grocery list, the unfolded laundry, the fact that my car needed the oil changed about 200 miles ago or anything else...it.was.utter.peace.
I am going to start working on a pantry project this week so I went to get some preliminary supplies. Here is what we are starting with...does it look familiar? Most people have a closet / pantry / cabinet / garage that has just gotten a little busy:
This particular pantry has food items as well as liquor and some miscellaneous dinnerware, serving pieces, vases and such.....
Once we get a handle on how the client wants to use the space, we'll take everything out, purge and categorize what is going to go back in. As I mentioned, I picked up a few of my favorite things as preliminary supplies for the project at (insert the sound of angels singing) Container Store to start with. Take a look at these babies and tell me they aren't cool:
Under cabinet shelf.
Aaaah...can't you just FEEL the organization of the pantry coming together? Does the thought of completion give you goosebumps too? Or am I just a little weird that way? Oh well, somebody has to do it and it might as well be me. Call if you need help!
