Hi Everyone! I am taking a quick break from kitchen painting to share with you my open kitchen shelves. I love having these open shelves because now all my cooking tools are super easy to get to. When we were looking for a new home 7 years ago, one thing I really wanted in the kitchen was a dedicated pantry. Do you want a pantry in your kitchen too? Unfortunately, I didn’t get my pantry but these shelves are the next best thing.
I came across these on-line at IKEA. I know… I have an IKEA addiction! These shelves are from IKEA’s FJÄLKINGE collection. The units are a nice warm white shade that would look great with any wall color. They are 4 ft wide each, so that’s a lot of storage.
One of the best things about the design of the shelves are the large drawers. I use one just for plastic containers. The shallow drawer is perfect for them.
It’s funny because anything not “put away” in the kitchen used to really bother me and now I love being able to just set things on these shelves! I think it’s because I finally decided everything does not have to be perfect all the time in my house. That’s a hard one for me to admit but it’s the truth. To keep the shelves tidy, I added storage bins and crocks on the bottom shelves for things what would not fit in the drawers.
Well that’s all for now. Anyway, thanks for visiting my little blog today!! I really appreciate you!
