Unpacking and Organizing Kitchen Cabinets

For this kitchen unpack and organize the client had recently moved and was not sure about where in her kitchen to place certain items.   Their family loved to cook and had lots of spices.  We started by clearing a cabinet and gathering the spices from the various places they had ended up in the unpacking process.

I have children who don’t always do their chores to my standard, and even make messes that they don’t clean up!!  I guess we…
