What happens when your apartment and tiny kitchen cannot possibly fit all of your kitchen toys that you NEED to survive? You get creative.
The above photo is my new apartment kitchen. It is not big nor spacious, but the rest of the apartment is, so I had to deal. After doing some research, I found a great website that features innovative small kitchen organization, and specifically fell in love with this particular display.
Did we make this a reality? Or is my Le Creuset pot destined to eat my kitchen? Find out after the jump.
So the good news is…we made it a reality. And by we, I mean my husband, who researched and built this monster, and myself, who dutifully critiqued him along the entire process. I think it is probably a slightly better one than the original picture, but hey, I’m a bit biased. This is the before shot of the wall.
And the after:
These shelves were bought from Home Depot, and were really easy to put in. We did have to put a brace in the middle underneath each one to give them extra support, but it was worth it.
We used a basic closet organizer for a pot rack, and basic s hooks to hang utensils and lids off of it. We also bought an additional wall-mounted pot rack, because I have so many pots and pans.
And of course, let us not forget the top, which not only holds my massive pots, but also prevents my Le Creuset from eating my entire kitchen. That’s a score in my book.
At the end of the day, we spent $100 making this wall, and it was totally worth it. How would you organize a small kitchen?
