“Continuing our theme of Spring decorating, cleaning and organizing, we wanted to share our solution to the Kitchen Desk Storage Area.
You know, those desk areas that are often built into kitchens and become junk piles…
Do you have a desk in your kitchen not being used as a desk?
Ours is used as a “landing pad”. Everything lands on this desk.
Of course, I cleaned it off to take this picture. Kinda like cleaning house before
When things started landing under the desk, it really started bugging
me. My cute country kitchen looked like a country junk yard.
I had some fabric left over from sewing the window treatments.
A simple panel was sewn and gathered on a spring rod.
Problem solved and I love the look!
Just as a side note- notice the curtain toppers? They are old wooden shelves picked up for just $5.00 each.
Just the right size, color and feel for the kitchen. The window treatments are attached with Velcro.
I just love it when things work out, don’t you?
You may have noticed this little red cabinet on the desk. It was made using thin plywood and has a tin “roof” with an old fashioned hook to keep the doors closed. The perfect place to display my granny’s flower vases, herbs and jams. Now to tackle the pantry, all I need is to make some of these antique labels for all my can goods! Aren’t they adorable.
This is a picture of one side of the kitchen. Imagine it without the desk curtain.
Again, chaos calmed and I am happy!
