Pantry Plastic Panoply

Our pantry has been in serious disarray for awhile now.

We can never find an appropriate container and lid when we need one.

For months if anyone needed a plastic container from the pantry a pile of them would plummet to the floor.

Paint worthy containers.

I spent half an hour on Sunday morning taking out all the containers, bagging up the ones we won’t use for a church donation, matching bottoms and lids for the ones we’ll keep, throwing away some of them, and keeping just a few in the paint supply box for paint mixing and brush cleaning.

A colorful array of containers and matching lids.

I’m trying to think how we can keep things orderly.

The back of the island has become a catchall for a variety of stuff.

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
