The Martha Stewart in me

One of the challenges of our new pad is that the drawer space in the kitchen is VERY limited. So I have had to get creative with storage of things you'd put in drawers.

I want to go for an 'Old World' feel for our apartment and I wanted something that would look good and be functional for all my spatulas, etc. This is what I came up with. I took a normal glass flower vase (this one was from Walmart...$3.97) and some hemp/twine.

I wrapped it around the vase, securing it with a little hot glue every now and then. This is the finished product:

Awesome idea! We, too, had the drawer space problem with our last apartment. The entire kitchen had...wait for it...ONE drawer. That's where our cutlery went. We bought a microwave cart that had another drawer to stick larger cooking utensils in, and then I had to get me one of those thingies you made yourself for the ones I used the most. And the rest went in storage. We made due like that for a very good long time. I can't even remember what I did with stuff like kitchen linens. Huh.
