kitchen dining room


My kitchen has been changed up a lot over the years..it used to be a separate kitchen and dining room when we moved in 6 years ago.

Then, we knocked the wall down and opened the whole thing up. This is how it looked just 3 years ago. It's so cute, but it wasn't functioning the way we needed it to and the floors were coming up all over. The oven, as cute as it is, just didn't work for us long-term.

We just recently added new floors and got it looking more updated.

Now, as for organizing my kitchen? It's essential that it be organized and run smoothly. Here is my little walk-in pantry, you can go to the link and see how I've organized with my little labels and even used wrapping paper to organize -- and have a clever way to organize my baking supplies

At one time I had a tea cupboard that I organized, but now I have this coffee bar to keep everything just so.


spices organized

I also recently re-did my spices and organized it with pull-down racks


utensils containers kitchen

My kitchen has very little drawer space, so when we moved in our house we bought a tower of drawers for all the stuff we needed to put in there. I've organized it to keep things neat and tidy.
