A new ‘How I Organize‘ post! Today participating is my amiga Irene of Designstiles, whose home I posted about yesterday. She shares with us how she beautifully organizes her sideboard:My sideboard is really a dresser I bought at the thrift store and repurposed. I like to organize each drawer by category. In the top middle drawer I keep misc tablesetting items – party hats, confetti, paper plates, cute gift bags, fun candles. On the top left drawer I keep candles and candlestick holders. In the four larger bottom drawers I store napkins and placemats in one, tablecloths in the drawer next to the napkins. Plates (like these) and chargers at the bottom and stemware to the right of that. I usually keep all my stemware wrapped but in this case, I unwrapped some of them to display. These gold elephant highball glasses are my favorite. I used to intermix all my tablesetting things until it got out of hand. Assigning each drawer to a different tablesetting item has made it so much easier for me to remember what I have. No more thinking I lost stuff. -Irene
Since this week is a short one due to the upcoming holiday, I thought I’d post this week’s beautifully organized space a little early.
This is space is from the perfectly put together home of Martha Stewart Living’s Kevin Sharkey. Check out how orderly his kitchen is:
He took optimized cabinet space by working vertically and taking advantage of adjustable shelves. To maximize space in your own cabinets, try utilizing organizers like these.
Also take a peek inside his dining room credenza:
