A bit of organising

IMG_4694I have been doing a bit of organising over the last day or so. This is the walk-in pantry as good as I can get it a) without buying expensive built-in shelves a la Nigella, and b) with the exception of the new sink that still needs to be fitted in the back right hand corner. It looks like a squeeze but that trolley with the steps on it is on wheels to allow access to the sink. To the left are the double doors into the understairs cupboard.

IMG_4696I have hung the hooks in the coat room.  iODyne’s suggestion of soaking the hooks overnight in water and Fairy liquid to get the old paint off worked a treat – no need at all for harsh paint strippers. I also then polished them up with some Brasso.

IMG_4697I added a couple to the back of the door too. There are extra hooks on order for the two rails on the facing wall.

I also organised the top floor cupboard but haven’t taken a picture yet – it will all have to come out again when the carpet is fitted but at least there is some order for now!

  1. Oh Miss Ruby’s beautiful face!
    all my children are 40+ but the ‘helicopter mum’ just kicked in when I saw the hooks on the back of the door – don’t throw it back and puncture the wall behind.

    Back in 1930 Le Corbusier pointed out that ‘a house is a machine for living’ and one cannot have too many hooks for hats coats umbrellas scarves dressing gowns shopping bags dogleads, kitchen hooks for tea/handtowels aprons, – all the things we need ‘to hand’ for grabbing quickly.
    I love the historic Shaker style of even hanging chairs on their walls.
