we've put up a couple corner shelves, painted white to match the walls, and we're using glass jars.
to keep from mixing up the sugar and salt, icing sugar and flour and the different types of flour i use, i printed cute labels found on pinterest onto sticker paper (seriously, the most useful stationery item i own!). this was an inexpensive project, gets us away from using plastic to store food in and prettied up the kitchen! all with the added bonus of random food no longer falling on our heads when we open the cupboard doors!
i love the look, the old-time feel and the ease of it all. the kitchen is 100% more functional! which makes me one happy lady!
