We are an Army family so we move frequently (8 times in 11 years) and every space is different. One of my biggest challenges is making each home livable and organized without spending lots of money. Some families take advantage of the diverse areas we get to live by filling their homes with local antiques. We are not one of these families. It breaks my husband's heart to put nice things in the hands of movers so for the most part our furniture was handed down or it's from Ikea. Ikea is great for inexpensive pieces that require assembly. I'm getting pretty good at putting their things together and everything holds up surprisingly well.
This weekend I needed a solution for this:
My solution for this mess was the Arthur shelf. It was under €10. A price that doesn't make my husband cringe. Something I should know by now though is the cheaper the price, the more assembly that's required. This simple piece ate up over 50 screws. Each slat of each shelf had to be screwed in. I bought two shelves but was thrilled when my groceries fit on one so I can put the other shelf together some other day.
I'm excited to be able to see what's in my overflow pantry!
