If you are new around here
then you may not know that I love my pantry
but the thing is
I now love it even more!
After our kitchen renovation one and a half years ago
I have had a few little organization challenges.
We used to hang all of our pots and pans from an indonesian-style ladder suspended from the ceiling...
that did not work in the new kitchen design but we still had a dilemma of managing fry pans.
So here is the inexpensive part....less than 15$ for a drapery rod holder and a piece of dowling.
I was going to paint the dowling but for now I am going to let it age and blend in with our wood ceiling....if that does not happen fast enough then I will stain it.
the before of the wall....needs paint ( I know we renovated our kitchen one and half years ago...but this wall has been hidden, so out of sight out of mind...right?)
Here it is painted and with dowling up and curtain rod holder in place. The little S hooks
are ones that I already had from Ikea.
So, knife rack back up, utility bar up and we are back in action in the pantry.
This space is such a great little spot for food prep, overflow counter space, storage, phone messages, grocery lists.... you name it
so although not necessarily that pretty
it sure is functional!
Now, we have the dueling pot racks...
the prettier version right up front for copper pots only....
and the practical
for those not so pretty but oh so wonderful
iron pans..... a cooks delight!!
