Since this summer my kitchen has been cluttered with canning jars filled with peaches, pickles, tomato sauce and jalapenos. It's a delicious problem, but a problem nevertheless!
My super handy, amazing step-father-not-quite-in-law just built me these shelves in our basement stairway. Now I am the proud owner of a canning storage shelf!!!
Tonight I put a few jars on the shelves to see how they fit. Don't they look great?! Plus, there's space for my water bath and pressure canners.
Of course, I still need to paint them and he's going to reinforce the shelves so they are extra strong. But I'm already planning what I'm going to do with all the empty space in my kitchen now. Perhaps some more appliances... Or I might just enjoy not having an overflowing kitchen.
