Butler’s Pantry Shelves

You guys.  I’ve been organizing like a mad woman.  No joke.  We had cloudy weather and some rain this weekend and I don’t know what it is about clouds and rain but they make me want to tear apart and organize every single drawer and cupboard in my house!  Is that weird?!  Maybe.  Probably.  I don’t care.  Things are getting checked off my list right and left and it feels good!  I haven’t had time to take pictures – been too busy with my head buried in cupboards.  ;)  But along with the organizing I also managed to re-style my butler’s pantry shelves so I thought I’d share that since I’m still mid-project with everything else.

Remember my fun Aztec sign I got from Caroline at Vine and Branches?  Love this thing!  It has been playing hot potato moving around from shelf to shelf in my house and finally landed in the kitchen.  The wood and black tie in so well with my new kitchen sign over the range hood.  I’ll take some pics of everything together soon.  My mom gave me the Jadeite Green Milk Glass salt and pepper shakers for my birthday.  Aren’t they cute!?  She knows me well.  :)
Other than those two fun additions everything else I just moved around a bit.  Do my shelves look too cluttered?  I have issues with clutter.  Did you already know that?  :)

Here’s what they looked like before.
And now.  These shelves are so fun to play with.  They never stay the same for long.
Re-arranged for Christmas.
And again for Valentine’s Day.
With Christmas cards still up of course.
Every girl needs a shelf or mantle to re-decorate on a whim, don’t you think?  It’s good therapy.

So is organizing every cupboard and drawer in your house.

Until you take it too far.  And then instead of it being therapy, you just start to need therapy.

Not that I’ve ever crossed that line before..


xoxo, Erin

  1. Ok – Confession! When I first saw the Aztec sign, I could not fathom why you liked it or how it would look. On this shelf it looks AMAZING! Kudos for having such an eye for décor Erin!


  2. Oh, Erin! I love getting things checked off of my to-do list. It’s one of the best feelings in the world to me!!!

    First, I am jealous of your butler pantry. My kitchen space is super-limited. Second, your decorating is awesome (as always). You never cease to impress!

    I’m so glad you’re enjoying your new house. I feel like I am living vicariously through you!

  3. Love your butler’s pantry. And, I too would constantly be rearranging them. I love the display you have now and no, not too cluttered. Love the layered look.

  4. Love! Very cute. The only thing I would have to change would be the salt and pepper shakers. They just need to be changed around so that they read “S” and then “P” instead of “P” and then “S”, cause I’m all kinds of crazy like that ; P

  5. hi, i loooove your kitchen!
    I have a few questions about the hardware:
    is it chrome or polished nickel?
    what size are your drawer pulls?
    is it from restoration hardware?
    thanks so much! :)

      1. Thank you so much for the prompt reply!
        Are those the RH UTILITY LATCHES you have on the cabinet doors? how are you liking them? :)

        1. Hi Andrea! I have RH latches in other rooms in the house but my kitchen latches I found at a local hardware store. I like them a lot but I had my cabinet guy glue the latch in so they don’t really lock each time! We are in and out of the kitchen cupboards a lot so I wanted them easy to open and close. :)

          1. Hi Mary! I don’t know what the brand is (I found them at a local hardware store and they were about to be discontinued) but they are identical to the latches at Restoration Hardware. I went with these just because they cost a little less and looked the same. :) xo

  6. I love every detail. It looks really good Erin. Just 2 more weeks and 2 days and I will be able to start decorating our new house. I seriously can’t wait.

  7. They look great! You do have a natural touch for organizing! I enjoy it as well :-) My biggest challenge now is I just moved from a 4,000 square foot home to a 2400 square foot home with more yard less than a year ago! I’m still sorting through boxes and trying to get creative with organizing! Frustrating at times, lol. Then I visit your organized home and it’s calming ;-) Thanks for sharing.


      1. Thank you for the reply. I had to go pick a vase up from there today, and unfortunately they didn’t have any like this any longer. I love them though.
