Here are some great ideas for creating more pantry storage in a small kitchen:
Re-organize to make a smarter pantry. Taller items on pantry shelves in back, shorter in front. Use baskets for bulky items and containers to corral small, misc. items.Adjust height of shelves to match the size of the pantry item and maximize the efficiency of your pantry storage space.Consider moving food items to drawers. More items can be stored in a drawer; label tops for quick identification.Install roll-out pantry drawers for easier access. Because you can see more, you can store more.Reclaim a closet.Reclaim storage between studs of wall.Take out the kitchen soffits to move infrequently used items above kitchen cabinets; make new pantry cabinet space below.Delegate pantry food storage outside of the kitchen: under the living room couch or out in the garage.Tuck pantry food items inside decorative furnishings, like a crock.Think on a smaller scale: consider a mini-version of a walk-in pantry.Take 12" out of hallway width for pantry shelves.Recycle wooden crates from wine, mount to walls as a shelf (can get free from wine stores or superstores).Make a skinny box on wheels next to empty space next to your refrigerator (same height) that can wheel out.Use over-the-door racks for extra storage on closet doors. For very narrow doors, take a hanging shoe pouch for over-doors and cut to fit.Purchase an antique or used furniture cabinet at a garage sale or flea market and refit the furniture for pantry use.Hanging up items is an alternative to using cabinet space.Install pantry shelving in kitchen where spices and staples can be stored out in the open.Hang pots up on a pot rack to free space up inside cabinets for pantry goods or keep inside oven when not in use.Put utensils in utensil caddies on the countertop to free up additional pantry space inside cabinets - flatware can be stored also in a decorative container on the table.Take a lesson from closet clothing storage experts and copy their unique storage ideas or even utilize their products for your food storage needs.

When I am board at home that's when I get my most creative ideas. My niece and nephew where looking for something fun to entertain themselves and that's when I thought of making cork board ornaments. We just used some materials that we found lying around the house, it was like we where on a scavenger hunt. It's never to early to start making Christmas ornaments especially if you want to make some for gifts. Kids love being able to give gifts to, so this allows them a chance make a special gift for family and friends. These ornaments are quick and easy, we made several different ones and in less then a half hour, which is great if you have kids with a short attention span. This is a great project for kids of any age and adult to, so don't miss out on the fun.

The summer is coming to an end and students are preparing for a new school year. The excitement begins and most students look forward to doing their back to school shopping. Most, if not all, welcome the idea of being able to decorate their school lockers and spend tons of time thinking about the perfect idea. There are others, however, that do not spend as much time thinking about decorating their locker. Instead, those students want to find something quick, fast and cool to accessorize their lockers if they choose to at all.
Suitable for girls and boys alike, a locker decorated with accessories from your favorite team is a great idea. You can get miniature posters, team photo frames or even magnetic wallpaper with your favorite team's logos.

Where to find your container supplies? Begin with what you possess. If you explore cellars or basements, attics, garages, and sheds, you will doubtless encounter objects of interest. Old-fashioned pots and kettles, usually sold in antique shops at rural auctions or observed at old New England inns, have much attraction.
In addition to run-of-the-mill circular pots and tubs, there are modern and ultra-modern forms--square, rectangular, triangular, hexagonal, and octagonal. Also eligible are old iron kitchen pots, kettles, pails, jugs, casks, vases, crocks, jam tubs, barrels and nail kegs, Japanese fish tubs, aged sinks, bathtubs, bamboo soy tubs. There are novelty containers such as driftwood, wheelbarrows, donkey carts, spinning wheels and boxes attached to roadside mail container. There are also bird cages, decorative well heads, animal figures, and Strawberry jars. Woven baskets may be used to conceal unattractive containers. Even tar paper pots, handled by garden centers and florists, are worthy if painted or veiled to upgrade their exterior. Any of these can be used in your container gardening ideas.

A lot of people find concrete staining useful for toning their concrete or wooden surface look brand new, great-looking as well as giving an matured look very much akin to all natural stones. Moreover, staining could also protect the concrete from many harshness of tough weathering. Stain coats must be occasionally applied to guard the concrete from rain, sun or other natural factors which lighten the original color.

Welcome to the wonderful world of fireplace mantels and fireplace mantel ideas. A mantel shelf is more than just a piece of wood mounted above your hearth. It's the perfect accent you place on your home. The mantel is where you place your most prized possessions, pictures of loved ones, and even where you hang your stockings at Christmas time. That's why you need to select a fireplace mantel that reflects the design of your home, fits well with your fireplace, and has enough space to accommodate the possessions you want to place on it.
The size of your fireplace: This is probably the most crucial element you need to keep in mind when browsing fireplace mantel ideas and possibilities. You want to measure all dimensions of your fireplace and have them on-hand. The last thing you want to do is guess on the size - you might end up with a mantel that's too short or too tall.
