I am joining The Tablescaper for her "Where Do You Keep It All" party to celebrate her 2nd Blogaversary! I joined in last year and a few things have changed since then. I've added more stuff...I know you are shocked...NOT!
So let's get started!
This was a photo of my dish closet last year. I've made some changes that have added more storage space
More shelves and I've tried to sort the dishes into color groups
I took down the placemats from the top shelves and instead put large serving pieces up there
The next shelves house some of my S&P collection and my Cobalt Blue depression glass set and other odds and ends
The top shelves on the side store some sets of Metlox china I've been lucky enough to find and some seasonal items
I added another set of shelves to this side for the large place mat collection and divided into color groups
Below the placemats is this great shelf with two drawers I found at a thrift shop. The large shelf is great for charger plates and the drawers hold some linens
This side was hard to photograph so excuse the angles. I got two closet organizers (using "My Points" to get a gift card) too maximize the storage. Adding two bins (found on clearance) at the bottom gave me some additional easy storage space
These shelves hold teapots, pitchers and other assorted pieces. The bins hold additional linens.
I used some storage boxes to corral my teacups and saucers
I found this great little step stool at the thrift shop to keep in here so I can access most everything. If I need 'tippy top' items I have to get the larger step stool.
Once we leave the dish closet we head into the dining room
The hutch is filled with glassware and other odds and ends!
Next is the Basement...a work in progress
This is an area I am trying to make into my ETSY shop corner. Shelves for my inventory and a work table for packing and shipping.
This area of the basement is where I hope to store many of the seasonal decor I have. I'm trying to put each season in a bin marked with its contents and then store them here. The shelves will be for items I use in tablescaping or vignettes but not as often as the upstairs items
Stuff has been just piled up on here but will be organized soon...I hope!
I also have this hutch downstairs that I plan to devote to my milk glass collection. Most of it is stored here but a few other items have stopped here on there way to somewhere else.
I also have some storage in the upper cabinets of my kitchen. Mostly stored there are extra glassware and my Christmas dishes.
So that's where I keep it all!
I hope you will join
