There I am every morning in my skivvies, at my stovetop, cooking my fried egg. About 1/4 of the way through, I look at the egg and it looks very unfinished. Without even thinking about it, I open the cabinet to the right of our cooktop, and I grab one of which seems to be millions of salt & pepper shakers. I shake a little salt on the egg, put it back. I shake a little pepper on the egg, put it back. I flip the egg, whip it on my plate, throw some toast on there, and all seems right with the world.
Except, wait. It’s not. There’s one problem. Did you miss it? Julie has too many salt & pepper shakers. That’s the problem, here folks. Her cabinet is over flowing with salt and pepper shakers and she has no idea how it got this way. There’s cute ones, there’s little ones, there’s even a few ugly & empty ones. Julie
hoards “collects” salt & pepper shakers. She’s out of control.
Until now. Thank goodness Julie came to her senses and finally freed all the salt and pepper shakers from captivity and made this darling “Salt & Pepper Shelf”…
Good move, Julie.
I mean, lets face it. Salt & pepper shakers are important. Most peeps ignore them. I think they are not only useful in our every day cooking lives, but they are cute. Like an old married couple. Two best friends, together till the end. Do you have favorite ones in your house? There are no 2 alike. Ever notice that? Some let too much out, or not enough, yet some have a perfect sprinkle.
So, if you follow me…you may recall, the removable shelf was already there. We installed it right after we finished our DIY real Brick Backsplash. It’s simply a stained 1×4 pine wood board from Home Depot that is attached with an L bracket in the middle screwed into the mortar, and 2 pieces of black wood under either side of the board screwed into the cabinet to hold it up.
I love that I can switch things up on that removable shelf. Especially for the holidays.
Here it is again with the salt & pepper shakers. You may notice the knife rack, too? I talk all about that HERE.
They kind of remind me of a parade…
If you like my salt & pepper shakers, I list most of the sources below. I need to go eat my egg now.
