Liveblogging Day 5: Planning a Kitchen Pegboard

Jan 8, 2013

When you use things daily, it's silly to keep them hidden away. That's the problem I have in my kitchen — limited storage space means all my pots and pans are lumped into the black hole that is the lower corner cabinet. Inspired by two of my food idols, I'm going to fix the functionality and add a pegboard to my kitchen.

Taking a page from Julia Child and hip homemaker Kate Payne, I'm planning to add a pegboard to this wall in my kitchen. Currently, an underutilized bookshelf lives there, but that will get moved to the office/guest room. A leftover light blue paint sample will add some color to the pegboard, then I'll get to hanging! With the corner cabinet cleared out, I'll use it to store less-used kitchen appliances.

Here's my official before photo:

I can't believe I just shared the scariest cabinet in my house. You all better snap your before photos and share them with me so I know I'm not alone!
