If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors
to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours.

My Dish Room

I had taken over a bedroom in our tiny cottage when we moved to the lake and converted it to a pantry.  It was serving me quite well until I found these delightful tablescaping blogs....now it over-floweth.

This is my kitchen storage

See that doorway just behind the cabinets?  Welcome to my pantry.

Behind the door ~
My shelving is made by Plano which I purchased at Walmart.  It comes 4 shelves to a package and I cut the tubular legs on my mitre saw to the size I need.  I've reconfigured this little 8 X 10 room often.  I'm not sure it can handle much more, but it is great to be able to close the door on it.

back to the kitchen ~ a spot above the refridgerator for pitchers.

Now, these areas held all my dishes BEFORE I discovered tablescaping.  My new purchases found a spot on the floor.

another unit to the rescue ~ this one on wheels.

This has got to stop!!!

But how does one resist when the colors are so perfect?

I think ITLLDO needs an addition!!

Thanks for stopping by and a huge thank you to The Tablescaper for hosting this fun blog....You have gotten me in soooo much trouble ~ but how fun it is!
