One of the tricky parts of my kitchen was the awkward corner cabinet. I never really knew what to do with it, and ended up just shoving anything that didn't have a home in that cabinet.
When I was looking for uses of my Christmas crates, I knew I wanted to do a spice rack, and I knew it would look perfect in the awkward corner cabinet.
After my bread crate was such a success, I knew I wanted to put shelf paper in the bottom of this crate, but the dividers got in the way. I tried to remove them, but they didn't budge. Shad tried to get the dividers out, but we realized they were going to break...because Shad's that strong. (sorry I had to throw that in)
It looked like I wasn't going to be able to put the shelf paper in the crate, but I am very stubborn. I racked my brain to find a plan B. (If you look in the top left corner of the picture above, Collin proves yet again, that he is the best photo bomber ever.)
Willing to try anything, I cut a piece of shelf paper to fit the crate. Using tweezers, I slid it over the side of the crate and under the dividers. Surprisingly, it worked!
Once the crate was ready, I moved my spices into matching spice jars. The labels are Martha Stewart labels from Staples. I'm not a fan of my handwriting at all, and I will be changing these labels eventually. I just haven't quite decided how I am going to do that yet.
On the top shelf of the awkward cabinet, I store a gallon pitcher, extra pyrex, and kids cups are in the pink basket. I use the spice crate almost like a door. Behind the crate, I have extra plates and cake stands that I use for entertaining.
The shelf paper adds a cute punch of color and brightens up this cabinet.
Tomorrow, I'm sharing the moment when I knew I had crossed over into crazyville with my love of shelf paper.
