Remember when I talked about making a list of things for the house? Well this week I finally accomplished one of my ideas.
I wanted a simple, white shelf near the stove top to hold spices, specifically my adorable salt & pepper shakers. Here’s the space:
Those weird things at the top are to hold paper towels but I don’t use a lot of paper, I think there’s half a roll in the cabinet that’s been there for a long while. The white shelves came from Target, pre-drilled with drywall screws. I simply lined them up where I wanted each shelf and marked the wall with a sharpie. I tried to stagger them to avoid the electric outlet and switch, it would be no good to drill into electrical wires.
Here’s the after:
I’ve removed the paper towel holder, put up two shelves and now have salt & pepper right next to the stove. The trivet hanging on the wall is mostly decorative but I like it. I found the little iPod speaker base at Target about a year ago on clearance, you can’t really see the red base but it matches wonderfully. Still, it’s a little bare and I never have nothing on my counters.
Next up I put out some candles in these little votive holders (also on clearance at Target) to make it look like spring:
