As part of the ongoing plan to use the kitchen cupboards to best food storage advantage and so cut down on shopping trips and hopefully save money, I thought it would be a good idea to have a place when all the sauces and spreads that are used on a very frequent basis are kept. I like the idea of open kitchen shelving so thought a little shelf was the way to go.
My sister found a brand new pine shelf for £3 at a car boot a couple of months ago which fitted the bill.
I wasn't sure which colour to paint it and so it just sat around getting in the way and annoying me because I wanted to use it but wasn't sure what to do with it exactly. Then when I spotted a sheet of strawberry patterned gift wrap in the Phoenix catalogue it all fell into place.
The paper was used to line the back and the bottom of the shelves and the rest was painted in a shade called Flagon. This was a tester pot I had bought a while ago when I was considering which colour to paint the dresser.
Yesterday G fixed it to the wall and so now at long last it's up and being used. Just the rest of the kitchen to sort now then!
It's a good home for my latest TK Maxx purchase. The heart patterned salt cellar, so cute.
