You know that feeling when you go into a cabinet for just ONE THING and then stuff comes tumbling out at you and you drown in an avalanche of unused Tupperware and stale candy canes? Yeah, me too.
Well, except that stuff didn’t so much as tumble on top of me as plop on the floor.
Or that I drowned.
We have this skinny little cabinet next to our stove with a small shelf in it. I guess in theory it’s for upright storage for pans, except that they’re clearly meant for only midget pans, since none of ours fit in it. So it holds cutting boards, cooling racks, a bacon frying pan greaseholder cover thing that I personally think is a tennis racket everytime I find it, pot holders, aprons, etc.
It looked like this:
Um, yeah, not gonna work. (Plus I got bored). I hated having to dig around for pot holders, so I grabbed them all out and decided to stick some nails in the door.
What? You don’t use a hatchet as a hammer? Oh, my bad…
After successfully using my hammer to
amputate a finger stick some nails in the door, I was left with this:
I still had a bunch of big holders, so I put a nail inside the cabinet. Note: if you do this, DO NOT NAIL THE SIDE NEXT TO THE STOVE. Duh.
Oh, and I really recommend this particular lighting system to see in the cabinet:
Look at me getting all high tech and stuff.
Anyways, I put the big holders up on that nail and then straightened up the boards, racks, etc. Since I now had a shelf available, I was able to reallocate some small storage stuff that had been crammed in another cabinet. And this is what I was left with! VOILA!!
Since I did this a week ago, I have noticed that if I open the door too fast, the top pot holders will fly off. If I were to do this again, I would use a nail with a bigger head on it, and not this:
Oh well. Live and learn, right?
