Slide Out Kitchen Pantry Drawers: Inspiration

It’s demo day in our kitchen! Eek! After a year of dreaming and planning, the big day has finally arrived. Yesterday we set up our temporary kitchen in our laundry room downstairs and it made it feel all the more real. While the laundry room is not as ideal as a kitchen (we don’t have a sink or a dishwasher!), we do have a few available cabinets, some counter space, and as I mentioned we’ll have our electric skillet and a microwave, so I think it’s going to work quite well. Today we are moving our refrigerator downstairs, too, so we will be all set up and ready to get this show on the road!

Even though we will still have a small kitchen after this process is complete, we will have more functional storage than we had before. I’ll show you the layout and more details about the kitchen and our cabinets in time, of course, but one of the organizational features I’m most looking forward having installed are the new slide out kitchen pantry drawers. We had slide out pantry drawers in the existing kitchen and found them to be quite handy for organizing and maximizing space!

Below you’ll find a round up of many of the slide out pantry inspiration photos and ideas we gathered during our remodeling planning phase. If you are planning your own remodel, you might also enjoy catching up with some of my other recent kitchen inspiration posts on the blog (find the links at the end of the post!).

Happy Wednesday, friends! Thanks for being excited for me and following along with the remodeling process. I always LOVE reading your comments and sharing this adventure with you.

PS. Did you see I snuck in a pup-update post late last night? Little Leo is getting SO BIG!

Fall Disorganizing

Fall Disorganizing

A glimpse of my ‘finished” old house inspires me to not give up!

I know spring cleaning is “a thing” people like to do, but I think fall and organizing should also go together. I feel extra motivated in September to begin organizing ALL THE THINGS. I love to organize my house in the fall because we are in more of a routine, I am inspired for my house to feel more inviting and cozy inside, and because there’s only like 102 sleeps left before CHRISTMAS! Don’t worry though, I won’t talk about Christmas just yet :).

Even though I’m really inspired for fall organizing this year, I’m honestly also feeling extra DISorganized about all the things around me right now. I feel like I’m always stepping over or dismantling more than I’m putting away. Many rooms and areas in our house have had to be in disarray for quite some time due to the work being done on our house inside and out.

I’ll spare you the list of issues, but it’s all a part of the process. It’s not going to be perfectly neat and tidy until it’s finished. And the dream of finishing is why we started our projects in the first place. We know it will all be worth it to us in the end; we just have to be patient on the way to the finish line.

Fall Disorganizing

Many other seasons of life feel like that, too. If you want to chase your dreams (build a house? maybe write a book? build a business?), you’ve got be willing to go through all of the steps make it happen. Even the not fun steps. You may have to stare at a blank slate, declutter everything first, or even dismantle what is not working for you at various points along the way (the not fun part) in order to build or restore it to more beautiful than it was before (the fun part). It’s definitely not always a pretty process and can be slow going to get through the chaos of it all, but finally reaching your dream or goal will be worth it.

You guys, have I mentioned lately how stinkin‘ excited I am about my kitchen remodel? We’ve been happily selecting our cabinet styles and this week we’ll finalize the cabinet layout, too. Then we can order our cabinets so they will arrive in time! I’m not only looking forward to a having a cute and clean kitchen, but I’m looking forward to being able to have drawers that won’t accidentally fall on my feet when I pull them out. It’s the little things, you know?

Are you in the middle of some fall disorganizing?

Fall Disorganizing

If you need a little extra nudge or helpful motivation to declutter and simplify your home and life, I wrote a newly released book called Make Room for What You Love (written as we were moving from our previous and more orderly house)! It contains all the tips and encouragement I have found helpful to motivate and encourage myself to form new habits and get my house in order. I hope it will inspire you, too.
