Hanging and Pecking

Well, I would have used another word, but thought better of it...giggle!

My son helped me get my kitchen a bit more organized. Finally time to hang the kitchen stuff I got from Ikea. My kitchen has stainless steel and black-smoke and cast iron accessories. The walls I dry brushed years ago in a gray color.

Darn...outta room
So here you can see, I need another one! I don't have a lot of counter space, so getting this stuff hung up is key. Good thing hubby will be going to DC a lot over the summer :) umm...honey, can you stop by....yeah, gonna have to do a lot of whining as I can't see him going in there alone LOL!

Magnetizing the knives
Both the above rack and this knife rack are part of the Kroken series. Definately will get more.

Cool measuring spoons A cute set of measuring spoons. L-R, Scrumptious, Delicious, Savory, Tasty, and yes they have the amounts on them :)
Wineo! Last but not least, my new wine rack. I will be getting at least 2 more to go above/below this one. Also a trip to the wine store is needed :) Here you see my cooking wine...not great to drink, but to cook with, awesome!

Oh, and the pecking...check out this guy!
A visitor
I went outside and heard his extra loud pecking...grabbed camera and hubby his new binoculars. It's a Pileated Woodpecker. One more hung out with him and a bluebird tried to be friends, but old Woody wasn't buying. Heard some screeching then.

Knitting was done! Should have an FO for you tomorrow. Also a bit of a
destash too.

Cool! It's always fun to get organized. :)

Awesome wall organization! I have hardly any counter space, but I have even less usuable wall space.

I like the idea of hanging measuring spoons--I always have to dig for mine!

Karen said...

That's so great. I've always wanted hanging pot racks and organizers - we have almost zero counter space in my kitchen. Of course, we have very little wall space too. *sigh* But you've inspired me to check out Ikea and see what I can come up with.

Can I have your kitchen? Please? We're redoing our and I can't find a damn thing.

I love those measuring spoons!

Very nice! I love it. I reorganized my spice cabinet this weekend, but it looks like you beat me by a mile!

I especially love the "measurements" on those measuring spoons!

Renna said...

I love your Ikea stuff. I have very little wall space in my kitchen or I'd do the same. I first discovered the wonder that is Ikea on a trip to Minneapolis last fall. I am now hooked on them! ;-)

Good times.

Mmm woodpecker. LOL

Yay!! Organized kitchen :) Amazing what little changes can do and give you more space, huh?

Hope your first day back at work went well!

I love the kitchen stuff! My goal in life is to have a kitchen with no upper cabinets (I'm short) and to use the wall space with stuff exactly like the stuff you have. I'm soooo jealous.

Oh, we have a woodpecker flying round out community too - lovely red head :0)

I also love your spoons :0)
