Shame on us….shame on us! Nearly 2 months since our last post on DINKS. I’ll not bother to make excuses. Better to just….post!
For those of you who have ever visited our humble abode (which we now OWN, by the way), you’ll know that ours is a one-fanny kitchen. To make that work, you’ve either got to be terribly organized and space-efficient, or you simply, well, embrace the chaos. For the last 15 months of tenant-ship, chaos has been our default position, but now that we own the joint, we might as well make the most of our tiny space.
One of my biggest kitchen pet peeves has been my “spice bucket” – a white rubbermaid with every spice bottle, box, and baggie I own thrown inside, all willy-nilly-like. Expletives flew each time I needed to find that &%## yellow mustard container!
Enter the wall-mounted spice rack. Not your ordinary wooden-country-kitchen rack, but a sleek, brushed, modern, magnetic one, with neatly labeled tins! Oh…..how Martha!
This all started with a birthday shpping spree at “Savory”, “Oliv You and Me”, “Rebecca’s Apotehcary”, and “McGukin Hardware”, and ended with some fine power drill work by Mark the Handyman. If you’re a local, I highly recommend paying visits to these wonderful stores to get everything you need to make your own rack, even if you have a 3-fanny kitchen! (Handyman not included!)
