Well I just know you were all just chomping at the bit to know what I have done with all the drawers in the new chest! Right?? LOL…
I made a trip to Bed Bath and Beyond and purchased these silverware organizing trays. I bought some open ones to store the napkin rings. I'm just thrilled with how organized this is. The one holding the napkin rings in here is 18" long so it has a good amount of room.
Now before anyone gets any ideas of stealing from me- there is no "real silverware" in my
horde collection of flatware.
I have to admit that my most recent tablescape was so much easier to do than in the past.
You may get a good laugh out of this (or at least know why I am known as Dizzie Lizzie)…. I had the table set up with the dishes and glassware and toddled back to my office/storage area to pick out my flatware and napkin rings. I literally stood there for a few moments wondering why I couldn't find my flatware or napkin rings. Duh… I laughed at myself as I went back to the chest of drawers that is conveniently near the table and of course there they all were! I was tickled at how easy it was to select what I wanted this time. Admittedly the trays cost a small chunk but I felt it was worth it to have the organization and not to cause any damage to the wood.
In my other chest of drawers in the living room I have a
horde bunch of placemats. I took out the round and square shaped ones and loaded the bottom drawer since they fit the small round table the best. Slap me if I buy any more! Good thing is that I organized them so the more summery stuff is on top.
So that's my Tales from the Chest
