The baskets for unrefrigerated produce is a genius idea. I am about to have some more shelving in my kitchen and I will be using this idea! Yay for freeing up scarce pantry space.

Oops I forgot to post the second image. Here are the jars up close, and you can see how they sit inside the rack:

I have tons of spices and loooove this solution. They are pricey and were a splurge for me, but I needed a stylish solution. They came from the container store. I am using six of them, all put together so it really looks like one big rack:

The glass bottles are super sturdy and the stainless looks really nice. I wrote on the lids with a silver sharpie but you could use a labeler too.

I feel really stupid for not thinking of this. I figured since the floor wasn't level, I just had to deal with stuff pooling to one side of the skillet. I'll be doing this tonight!

Hey, I just joined! I wish I'd seen that you guys were doing a cure before we started our major kitchen renovations. We just had a new floor put in, and I also painted EVERYTHING including the cabinets. We installed new hardware and a new ceiling fan too.

BUT - I haven't done a very serious purge. Not everything is back in the cabinets yet. Our carpenter friend is building us another cabinet on a wall to replace our cheapo Target kitchen cart, which will give me 38" of MUCH needed counterspace, as well as more storage.

So I will work on purging and organizing tools this week! I'll try to get some "before" pictures, wish I'd taken a bunch before we started this whole thing! Oh well. I'll start now!

Snake plant or Mother in law tongue - you could grow that stuff in an ashtray on top of a TV. I water mine maybe once a month.

Install them into a bookshelf, that's what I did and it works well as long as you can move the shelf up and down.

Just built my little 4x4 garden box a weekend or two ago, I got my first strawberries a few days ago! It's my first garden ever, I can't wait to see what else does well.

Piano? That's a sewing machine. Also the stuffed animals are A) vintage snoopy dolls from my childhood and B) handmade plush by working artists. So I'll keep em, thanks.

Oliviahh - it's fall colors contest, not fall colors-themed contest. They just hold it in the fall.

And yeah, to everyone who wanted to see the whole house, last year's was just one room. I didn't even notice this was a whole house thing! If you want to see more color, you can go here.

mh330 - it's American Tradition "Sea Wave" from Lowes.

And thanks on the Morrissey print. It's by a local artist, Doug Clarke.

I think it's great that this lady can make a living off something that some of us enjoy doing ourselves. I love working with recycled sweaters! And I don't think the prices are too high, if I made something like this I'd sell it for a similar price.
