Well you know how that goes, when I took the knives out of the knife block and put them on the wall, I still had steak knives and a honing rod to store, so that meant it was time to clean out the knife drawer. I took my old knives, sharpened them really well and put them in the knife block to give to a friend, then I straightened the drawer. Amazing how much room I have now.
This is on one side of the stove, so I thought it was a good place for my kitchen sheers and oven thermometers. Plus a great place for my honing rod, boning knife and all those steak knives.
Once this drawer was done, I decided to tackle a few others. Might as well purge all of them and make them usable.
Next is this one that has some often used tools too. Tongs, wooden spoons, spatulas, whisks and a few odds and ends that I use all the time fit in here.
I started back on the other side of the kitchen and gave my baking drawer a good cleaning and straightened it up as well.
Down the other side of the cabinets, I have the silverware drawer. I really enjoy this double tray. It holds extra spoons under the top spoon dividers.
You can't make a trip to Ikea without buying some of their pillow covers. I found some velvet ones that I really liked - sand - soft yellow & gray - only $8 each. Plus how could you not buy that bright orange one and it is only $4. Perfect to stash away for my Halloween porch. I have some greek key trim that I bought at Hobby Lobby, so I think I will add some to one set of pillows. (Check back later and I'll show you what I did)
