{ makeover monday: kitchen storage envy }

I inherited our kitchen design from the previous home owners. Aesthetically, it's decent. The storage options, however, are deplorable. Each time I retrieve a pot or bowl, I have to pull everything out of the cabinet, pull the one I need,  and then rearrange the stacks and put it all back in. It drives me crazy...I need a kitchen storage makeover! In my quest for some creative options, I've come across these favorites...

I love this command center and storage area for cookbooks and cooking oils. I purchased similar metal wall panels from Ikea and use magnetic clips to keep important reminders/papers tidy--love the magnetic spice container idea too.

Happy Monday all. It's a rainy one here. How about you...are any of you snowed in?

An excellent kitchen design is critical for two reasons: first, the kitchen is a gathering place for the family; and second, the a great kitchen design will increase the value of your home.
