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..

Looks great and I love how the little stool/bench looks in there too!!! :)
Ah! I forgot to mention that fun find! I like it too since you gave me the idea to stack things on it! :) xo
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!
Ha ha.. Love it! :) So glad I changed your mind Beth! xo
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!

Thank you Shannon! So sweet of you to say! xo
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.
Thank you Lauren! xo
How big is the Aztec sign? It looks so much better than the one pictured on her website…
Hi Jess! It’s bigger than the one posted on her site! It’s 13×13. Send her a msg because she sells two sizes. :)
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
Ha! You aren’t the first person to say that! I’ll have to change them around. ;) Thanks Samantha!
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! :)
Thanks Andrea! Yes! It’s from Restoration. :) It’s chrome and the pulls are 6 inches. Hope that helps!
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? :)
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. :)
What brand are the latches? Which store did you purchase them from? Thanks!
Also, is there a reason you decided on these instead of the RH utility latches?
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
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.
I love your little stool. It’s looks beautiful.
Thank you Shmyla!
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.
Never mind the cute shelf… I adore your floors!!! Also, I’m the same with grey, cloudy weather. I’m super productive and a MACHINE :)
WOULD YOU MIND SHARING THE SOURCE FOR THE TOWELS HANGING ON YOUR OVEN? LOVE THEM! THANKS!
Hi Heather! Thank you! They are from West Elm. :)
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.
I love your butler’s pantry! I want to have one built next to our dining room where my desk is right now.
