I am blessed with many friends. A few of them really love to shop. Among them, a few are less likely than me to shop until they drop; others put me to shame. Some like to scour for vintage finds; others are more into the latest trends and styles. Variety is the spice of life, and I love all my shopping girl pals.
And I owe it all to a good friend who went on a spur-of-the-moment shopping spree with me recently. While we were out, she pointed to some over-the-door hangers and mentioned she was looking for one herself. A few stores later, I happened to spy the one you see here, and I immediately saw its usefulness in my kitchen. (She got one, too – slightly different style.)
Even though I didn’t know before that moment, this was the answer to my mental debates with myself about this pantry door: do I take it off and replace it with a windowed French-style door, like Thrifty Decor Chick did?
I could do that, but then where would I put all the spices that are conveniently located on the inside of the door?
Not to mention, my pantry is a true workhouse larder for our canned goods and dry goods. My little warehouse is efficient, but not necessarily beautiful to behold, even if I blurred the view with some seeded glass. But this idea was a stroke of luck and genius: It keeps my aprons handy, and adds a little color to an otherwise stark white door.
So thanks to my dear friend for putting the notion in my head, and being ready to hit the stores – any stores – at the drop of a hat.
