Door Shelf Tweaking

I've been doing some tweaking lately!!! Do you remember the old door we added shelves to? Well, as we have slowly progressed with our kitchen redo (we have all the trim and baseboards installed, now onto the countertop and backsplash!!) I have simplified my kitchen decor a little. I have gotten rid of quite a bit and moved things around. I don't want to show too much of my kitchen right now, so I'll just show you the changes I made to the door shelves. 

Here's what the door looked like before when we first added the shelves and got it in place behind the pallet cabinet: 



And here's how it looks now!!

I was having a hard time getting everything all in one shot so I had to go to the farthest corner of the room and get an angled shot - sorry!

 I kept a few of the same elements and changed up the rest. 

As you saw in the original picture we had our microwave on the cabinet. Our only outlets are all the way across the room and I hated seeing the ugly extension cord needed for the microwave, so we moved it over to the counter. I'm still not sure if I like the new placement yet, but I do love the little baking station I set up on the pallet cabinet, so it may just stay. 



 This little hanging wire basket is also a new addition!!!

 One of my whisk brooms from my growing collection!




 I love the new spot for my ironstone butter pats! Much more visible!


What do you think? Do you like the original or tweaked version better? 

If you'd like to see sneak peeks throughout the week and other inspiration, be sure to follow me on Facebook!!

  4. YES! I love everything...the pallet cupboard with the door with shelves behind it and your collection of kitchen vintage. I do not remember the other display but I do love this one. I agree with DEE about the stylist...

  9. I have a scale similar to your top right one, I love it - my fav. I also have a red and white one that I couldn't leave based on the price and it's so accurate I use it when I have to mail a package.

  20. I love it all. We must be collecting the same things - maybe we are sisters and don't know it. It is a great area that you have set up. I think I prefer the new way best. Love how you used the door and made shelves. Awesome idea. I am your newest GFC and I pinned this.
    Have a wonderful week,
