Remember the shelf I wanted so badly? And the day I told you I was working on "a project" but wasn't finished yet?
Well I can't say I am entirely finished but I am going to just tell you about it anyway. Because I know how you have all been holding your breath waiting and I just couldn't keep you in suspense any longer.
So, the shelf I wanted was a little more than I wanted to pay. I considered getting the four tier shelf for $70, even though I really wanted the $80 five tier shelf. So basically I just kept wishing.
Then I went to my most favoritist store in the whole wide world, Target.
They had a shelf. The shelf. The exact shelf I wanted. On SALE! For $40!!! Oh ya! Not even just the four tier shelf but the entire five tiers in all their glorious tierness!!
There was one little thought that made me a bit nervous. What if it was too big for the space? It's not like I had been all prepared and done anything smart like, I don't know, measure the space.
$40 for the shelf was just too good a deal to pass up so I bought it. Actually I didn't buy it. Instead I went home and obsessed about it for a few days, went back to the store in a panic, sure that it would no longer be there, found it, and then bought it.
Brought it home where it sat in a corner for awhile because the battery on the camera had died and I had left the charger in my sister-in-laws car. I refused to put the shelf up before I could take proper pictures. Finally I got the camera all charged up and three days later I got up off the couch and decided to begin.
Here we are a mere three weeks later and I am ready to show it to you.
Are you ready?
I know you are!
Here it is!!!
Remember my "pantry" before?
|And the overflow?|
|So I moved it out.|
|Unfortunately the space was a little small.|
No problem, I told myself. All I have to do is move the piece of furniture next to it and I should have plenty of room.

The entire thing had to be cleared off and drawers pulled out. The whole process made quite a mess in my kitchen.
Bigger mess than usual.
Finally I was able to fit the shelf in. With not an inch to spare.
Yes, those are paint cans. Where else would I store them? Don't you keep your paint in your pantry?
I even got some cute bins at my favoritist store. Ya, Target. No, this post wasn't sponsored by them. I just really love Target.
I still had to organize the stuff and clean up the kitchen so obviously I got right to work. After a few weeks. I'll let you know when it's finished . . .
Ok, I'm not that bad. Ok, I am. But there has been some progress.
|At least one side of the kitchen is clean!|
