I have one set of open shelves in my kitchen, and they’ve been holding bowls, plates, cups and tea since we moved in. Not bad, just not exactly what I wanted.
For Christmas, I received 8 gorgeous Weck jars from my mother-in-law. They are absolutely perfect for holding bulk items, like gluten-free flours, legumes, nuts and the like, and they are sleek enough to be displayed somewhere like an open shelf in a kitchen!
This was actually quite simple. I took everything off the open shelves and out of the cabinets next to it. I decided what items I wanted in my jars (different types of rice, old-fashioned oats, potato starch, red lentils, and walnuts) and used a chalkboard marker to label them all.
After wiping down all the shelves, I also removed one from the open shelf. Though this cuts down on storage space, it makes things feel more airy and open; the jars looked squished when there were three. After a few more minor additions to the shelf, I was done!
Now that I’ve finished organizing a few kitchen shelves, I have a desire to organize every single closet and cupboard in the house. Wish me luck!
