This, my friends, is a small part of my pantry. The baking shelf, to be exact. Hence the chalkboard tag, aptly named "Baking".
Now, I ain't one to fish fer compliments, but that there is one purty shelf.
I would like to point out that the one above it is aptly named "junk". There's no other word to describe a shelf with both hamburger helper (junk) and crystal light packets (junk) thrown together. The "Junk" shelf, however, is cleaner than the "baking" shelf.
I would also like to take the opportunity to blame this, completely, 100% on my children. Afterall, this is the shelf with marshmallows and chocolate chips.
Sometimes I forget to lock the pantry door.
Anywho, let's renovate, shall we? I really like sauce packets. They are clearly everywhere in there. I'm a gravy, meat loaf, and hollandaise sauce packet kinda gal. I wanted a crate of some sort to hold them. And the Hob Lob let me down.
So I made my own with scraps from the Daddy-o, last night, while laughing my ace off watching "Modern Family".
Don't you judge me- I never took crate building 101 in college. You should check out my basket weaving, though.
Anywho, I'm obsessed with stencils as of late. They are a hoot.
And then I let Mr. Sander just eat this thing up. (I love you Mr. Sander)
A hoot, I tell you!
Now, on to this awesome inspiration from Melaine over at Sweet Savannah:
I love those vintage-y tags. She even links to where you can get these for yerself.
My printer sucks (don't buy yourself a Kodak printer! Consider yourself warned). So without a printer, these cool vintage-y things can't help me. I turned to a lil vinyl. And I was likin' the look. So I ran to get my camera. . .
Heard an "UH OH!"
That is the face of a kid who knows he is dead meat.
Don't worry though-- I made it up to him after his beating.
Now, this is where some kind soul tells me why my brown sugar is as hard as rocks. Geez! White sugar: oxygen. Brown sugar: no oxygen.?. "Snip snap, snip snap!" (name that tv show character)
You know what? Screw the seasoning packets for that crate. It can hold my shmallows and chocolate cheeps!
Better? Better. Notice that I'm still not showing you my entire pantry. . . hehehe. . .
