Areas that wouldn't normally be considered as storage quickly have hooks screwed into them ( and in some cases simply screws )
magnet bars hold things other than knives ( well there's also the fact that I'm terrified a killer will break into my home and quickly find them hanging there and then use them to kill me - but that's a story for my therapist and not you guys )
Curtain rods are used for things other than curtains
Door jambs become become a place to hang an apron or two
and doors are no longer meant as just a means to come in and out
even window knobs become a place to hang a basket
so it was just a hop - skip and a jump away from a hutch being repurposed into a pantry..........
Tucked into an alcove just before you step into the kitchen..........
We're empty nesters ( I HATE that phrase - absolutely hate it ) and we eat mostly fresh but still we needed somewhere to keep tins and cereals and such.
And our small kitchen doesn't have a pantry
Or rather it DIDN'T have one................now it does :)
The bottom section is where I'm keeping all of my baking supplies - it's just perfect for a house with a tiny kitchen.
No wait !
I take that back !
It's not perfect - perfect would be having a pantry no matter how small your kitchen is - but it's perfectly fine ..............
Have a wonderful day everyone !
