Rethinking My Utensil Drawer

My recent home renovation included replacing all of my kitchen appliances. This required a widening of the doorway (don’t ask). As a result, one of cabinets was replaced with a narrower cabinet. The original cabinet had a drawer that I used for kitchen utensils. I was lucky to have multiple shallow drawers in different areas of my kitchen. I used one for silverware, one for utensils, and one for my wraps and baggies. Now I was down one drawer. Even…

Sometimes There Is A Better Way, Part 2

Last week I wrote about relocating my cashmere sweaters from my cardigans drawer to a shelf in my closet using the Cambridge Drop-Front Sweater Box. (If you missed it, you can read it here.) I’m still pleased as punch with the changes I made to everything on my closet shelves as a result of this move. But what about my cardigans drawer itself? I wasn’t planning on doing anything further with the sweaters that remained in there. But removing the…
