Welcome to Kitchen Organization Week at Charleston Crafted!

Hello all! This week we will be taking a bite out of spring cleaning by organizing our whole kitchen! It didn’t start out too badly around here, but since Sean moved in, we’ve combined all of our stuff and have ended up with a lot of duplicates and over packed drawers and cabinets.

This week is all about organization & having a place for everything. We need to purge & label everything to make the most efficient use of our space!

Today, we’re just going to tease you with a mood board of all of our favorite kitchen organization ideas! Check them out below & make sure to check in all week to see what projects we conquer!

Pantry- The pantry is the #1 place that needs to be revamped in the kitchen. I adore the idea of placing all of the loose items like rice & pasta in matching canisters. I really would love to at least break things into categories & store like items together, as well as to clear some of the extra non-food stuff out of there!

Baking Center- I love the idea of having all of my baking materials in one place. I adore how this display has all of the measuring spoons  on display. It has the double purpose of getting them out of the junky drawers and having them in easy reach whenever I’m baking or cooking.

Pots & Pans- This is an area of the kitchen that seriously needs help. No matter what I do to organize them, they always end up in a horrific, jumbled pile. I love how Kevin & Amanda use dividers to separate everything. I particularly love the added storage of pans on the shelves above. I’ve always stored my pans in the section under my stove, but then I have to, once again, dig for anything that I want.

Under the Sink- We really need to get our under the sink situation on check. I am really digging this picture, from My Home Ideas. It incorporates several crucial elements. First of all, there’s a trash can. We keep our recycling under the sink & would love to continue doing so. I love the lazy susan for cleaning supplies. I also love the removable caddy holding most often used cleaning products. Finally, the door storage really maximizes the space! The only thing is that I think our sink has a lot more pipes underneath!

How Do You Feel About Acrylic Furniture?

Though Sean and I have different decorating tastes & styles, we usually can come to an agreement on things without either one of us being too upset. However, there is one current trend that has us totally torn- clear acrylic furniture. Here’s a little … Continue reading

Hello April!

I am so excited for April in Charleston! It’s one of my favorite months because the weather is gorgeous & everything just comes to life!

We have some exciting news to share on the blog! As y’all might know, Sean got back from his ten week stay in Maryland two weeks ago. Well, the lease on his apartment ran out at the end of March & he has officially moved into the condo! We are very excited for this new chapter in our lives together & can’t wait to see where we are going to put all his furniture & the dreaded Panthers shower curtain!!!

With Sean’s return, we will also be returning to daily blog posts! I’m so excited to bump up the number of projects, meals, and experiences that we can share!

Sorry for the over use of exclamation points, I’m just so very excited about it all!!!

What does April hold for you?!
