Kitchen Hutch Organization

With a small kitchen and not much cabinet space, I love to use furniture in my kitchen for functional organization.Using furniture instead of cabinets add a personal touch as well as allow me to express my decor style.

This hutch I’m sharing with you today, my husband and I found at the Goodwill for $39.99.

Awesome deal!Before painting it it was a dark wood.I didn’t rush to paint it because I like to live with a piece before I paint it.I’m the type that frequently changes what I like, where I like it and how I use the items in my home.So, painting furniture right away only leaves me with another project in the near future when I end up painting it again because I’m sick of the color.

My hutch is used for 3 different purposes

1.Baking Station- all of my baking items are housed in the hutch with the exception of maybe a few seasonings and that’s because those seasonings are used for other cooking needs too. Mixing bowls and of course I have to display my vintage kitchen decor.

 

2.Lunch prep items- many of the supplies I used to pack up everyone’s lunches are in the hutch. Such as sandwich bags, small containers, plastic silverware, cookie cutters to cut sandwiches etc.There all there in one location easy and accessible.

3.Breakfast foods-Cereals, oatmeal, grits, pancake mix, syrups etc. are kept in the hutch as well.The kids know where to look for the cereal on mornings I don’t make breakfast.

I’ve included a video below so you can take a look and see how I store all of these items in my hutch and pick up some ideas on storing some of your own kitchen supplies.Do you have designated areas in your kitchen to house your baking, lunch prep and breakfast items? If so, where do you store them?

5 Uses for Chalkboard Labels and STUFF

One of the things that draws my attention while out shopping and will get me to by it for a dolla… chalkboard anything!  Anything!  Chalkboard labels, tags, boards, paint, markers, paper and the list will go on.  They make them and I’ll buy them.

What I love most about chalkboard stuff is that they are multifaceted.  You can use them in so many ways and continue to think of more ways to use them.  I’d like to share with you 5 uses for all things chalkboard.

Labeling Stuff: Well, duh.  Let’s not just label the ordinary things, let’s label those things that we didn’t think to label.  We’ve all added labels to our spice jars, but let’s not forget to label those containers that we can’t see in.  Not everyone in our home knows where the sugar is or the rice that’s stored in the non-translucent containers. So, let’s label them.

Give a Cohesive Look To The Non- Cohesive:  Let’s say you have some mix match bottles or containers that’re located in the kitchen on the counter.  In order to bring these items that don’t look like the other together, add chalkboard labels and voila they’re now intransigent.

Scriptures or Quotes:  Looking to add some inspiration or encouragement to a space?  Add some chalkboard signs with your favorite scriptures or quotes.

Of course this sign is on a massive scale, but you can go as small or large as you’d like.

Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner Parties: Having a party or friends over for lunch?  Knowing that I’m a bit bias on the chalkboard stuff, but they add the cutest touch.

Paint Something With Chalkboard Paint: Want to get creative?  Paint a wall, desk, jar or whatever floats your boat with chalkboard paint.  Adds a creative element to any space in your home or office.

Are you into chalkboard labels, tags, boards or paint too?  If so, what do you like using chalkboard labels for?  Hope I’ve given you some ways to use them or sparked your creativity or interest when it comes to these functional labels.  These things are so fun to use , but like I said before I’m a bit bias when it comes to anything chalkboard.
